Total Tattoo Removal Perth believes that anyone who wants to get their tattoo removed needs to know as much about the procedure as possible.Walking into the situation blind is a good way to regret decisions later on, and do you need one more disappointment over your head?
To help this along, we're providing a quick overview of laser tattoo removal as a service to you, our potential clients.
First, we use the latest in laser tattoo removal systems.
The laser uses 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths, which are the most popular for breaking down inks and pigments.
The first is ideal in darker ink colors, like your blues and greens. The second sees use in brighter colors, like reds, oranges, and violets.
Together, they can remove most pigments over time.
The third wavelength we use, if necessary is 694mm, which targets particular ink shades that are resistant to the other lasers.With our trio, the laser tattoo removal here at Total Tattoo Removal Perth does a better, more comprehensive job than our competitors!
What happens during the treatment?
Laser tattoo removal breaks down the ink pigments. The inks absorb the energy from the lasers, causing them to shatter into smaller pieces. Along with this, the lasers have a shockwave effect that causes the pieces to scatter.
The result is a process of fading that is reminiscent of the natural fading of a tattoo over exposure to the sun, but at a faster pace.
Once the pieces are broken down, the body reacts on its own and begins to flush away the ink.
The immune response manifests as swelling and redness, with the ink particles, pushed out of the body naturally over a period of days, weeks, or months. The amount of time it takes will vary based on the pigments, the size of the tattoo, and the regularity of treatments.
Why does it take so long? Well, the body needs time to heal. As anyone who has had laser tattoo removal will tell you, getting it done is almost more painful than the actual tattooing.The time between sessions is to help the skin recover from the stress, as well as give the body time to process the broken bits of pigment.
There's no way – under currently existing technology – to get rid of an entire tattoo in one session. Depending on the size of the tattoo, it might take a few sessions or several.
