Laser tattoo removal has become increasingly popular as patients realize how great of a treatment it can be. Unsightly tattoos, poorly executed tattoos, or tattoos that have a meaning patients want to get past can be easily removed with the help of laser lights. Laser lights have been used in the medical field for many decades now for a number of conditions. This light can also be used in breaking up the pigmentation of tattoo ink used to create permanent tattoos on the skin. The laser light pulses to break down the ink and allow the body to absorb it safely. The result? The removal of what was once thought to be permanent.
Laser tattoo removal needs to be done in a series of treatments. Just one treatment of a tattoo may provide some fading but not full removal. The number of treatments needed will vary greatly from patient to patient. Several factors may affect removal including the colors of the inks, the quality, and the size of the tattoo itself. Dr. Matthew Doppelt and the team of Southeastern Dermatology can give patients a generalized idea as to how many sessions may be required for treatment, but this may be more or less depending on how the body—and the tattoo—reacts to treatment.
