Tattoos are a way for people to express themselves by making their body a canvas on which to paint their beliefs, dreams, and ideas. Some people’s entire life story can be read in the ink etched into their skin. While millions of Americans currently have tattoos on their body, “tattoo regret” is increasing as well.
Whether a person has made a lifestyle change, is looking for a promotion, or has simply changed his or her mind, there is always someone looking to get rid of a tattoo. Even though tattoos are meant to be permanent, we have found ways to erase them. However, until now most methods were quite painful and left scars worse than the original tattoo itself. Even the laser removal of tattoos, which has been advertised for over a decade now, has gained a reputation as being painful and leaving unattractive scars. Fortunately, with modern technology, there are other ways of tattoo removal with few side effects, including new and improved laser removal.
The newer, safer, and more effective laser removal procedure works by using a high-intensity beam of light to break up the color pigments of the tattoo within the skin. The more colors in the tattoo, though, the more difficult removal becomes, as certain colors do not respond well to the laser.
Given the unique characteristics of each tattoo, each treatment must be specifically designed for that tattoo. The Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England uses the Alex TriVantage Laser for tattoo removal. This technology works by using the refined methods of the laser technology described above, with longer pulse wavelengths and redesigned distance gauges. This allows a great deal of precision when removing a tattoo. To learn more about laser tattoo removal, and the other treatments we provide, contact us today!
