Laser Tattoo Removal in Asheville

Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted tattoos. The procedure involves using a specialized laser to break down the ink particles in the tattoo, which are then naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system. Laser tattoo removal is a popular option for those who wish to remove tattoos for personal and professional reasons. 

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?​

Laser tattoo removal works by directing focused beams of light onto the tattooed area of skin. The light is absorbed by the tattoo pigments, causing them to break down into smaller particles. These particles are then recognized by the body’s immune system as foreign substances and are removed naturally through the lymphatic system.

The number of treatments required for complete removal of a tattoo depends on the size, color and age of the tattoo, as well as the individual’s skin type and immune response. The procedure can be uncomfortable and is often described as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin. After each treatment, the area may be sore and blistered, but healing usually occurs within a few weeks. It is important to choose a reputable and experienced provider for laser tattoo removal to ensure safety and optimal results.

DermaBlue Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment Process​

Laser tattoo removal involves using high-intensity light beams to break up pigments within the skin. The laser sends short pulses of light that are absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing it to heat up and shatter into tiny particles. The body’s immune system then works to eliminate these particles naturally.

A series of treatments is usually necessary to target all ink colors, with each session spaced several weeks apart to allow the skin to heal. The duration of the treatment depends on the size, colors and age of the tattoo.

Tattoo removal may cause pain or discomfort, although this can be alleviated using a numbing cream or local anesthetic.

Tattoo Removal Results​

Laser tattoo removal can produce varying results depending on a number of factors. These factors include the size and color of the tattoo, the type of ink used, the depth of the ink, and the person’s skin type and health. In general, however, laser tattoo removal results in a fading of the tattoo over a series of treatments.

Patients can expect gradual fading of the tattoo over a series of treatments until it is no longer visible on the skin.

The number of treatments required depends on various factors such as the size, color, and location of the tattoo. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated and requires no downtime.

Multiple treatments may be needed, typically spaced several weeks apart, to achieve the desired level of fading or complete removal. It’s important to note that complete removal is not always possible, and scarring and skin discoloration can occur as possible side effects. It’s important to consult with a licensed and experienced laser tattoo removal specialist to understand the potential risks and results for your specific tattoo and skin type.
