There’s no denying the facts: A recent Harris Poll found that nearly one in five adults with a tattoo regrets getting inked. There are dozens of reasons to suffer from tattoo remorse, but one simple solution: PicoSure laser tattoo removal.
If you’re considering having that unwanted ink removed for good, there’s a lot to keep in mind. Here are five things you need to know about tattoo removal.
1. You can afford tattoo removal
If you thought tattoo removal was cost prohibitive, think again. PicoSure’s efficiency means fewer treatments are required, which equates to less cash out of your wallet. Additionally, Southeastern Dermatology offers CareCredit® to make the process even more budget-friendly. Similar to other lines of credit, CareCredit® features low interest rates and allows you to make flexible payments over time, putting the treatment you want easily within your grasp.
2. Only a handful of sessions are needed to get rid of unwanted ink
Southeastern Dermatology uses state-of-the-art technology to facilitate quick and easy tattoo removal. The PicoSure laser delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to shatter tattoo ink. The ink is then eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system with other waste and byproducts. Most tattoos require four to eight sessions for removal. In fact, one scientific study found that all patients saw their tattoos all but vanish (75 percent clearance) after two to four sessions with the PicoSure laser.
3. There’s no need to worry about pain
Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive procedure. The PicoSure laser only targets ink, without disturbing the outer layers of your skin. Treatments are delivered in Southeastern Dermatology’s comfortable office by trained medical professionals who can help you manage any pain with topical anesthetics. There’s a chance you may experience minor itching, bruising or other pain after the procedure; this can easily be managed by following simple aftercare instructions.
4. Leave the Past in the Past
Maybe your tattoo professes the love for a past flame that has since burned out. Or maybe you thought that lower back tattoo with your girlfiends on spring break was awesome until you became a mom. Whatever the case, we have you covered.
5. Having a tattoo can hinder your luck on the job front
Even though more and more people are getting inked, many workplaces and hiring managers still frown upon visable tattoos. In the study, thirty-one percent of hiring managers said that visible tattoos have a negative impact on their views of job candidates, according to a CareerBuilder.com survey. Laser tattoo removal will allow you to start with a blank slate.
