Various types of tattoos are being used to pot ray statements of individuality, sexuality, belonging, machismo, and anger. People change with time and get new ideas but unfortunately, tattoos are permanent. Various types of tattoos pigments are used to different colors of tattoos such as black, green, blue, red, and orange.
Tattoo Removal Measures and Techniques
Tattoos can be removed with some laser techniques. At Orange Tree, we use one of the most popular and effective techniques, Q-switched Nd: Yag. It has a long wavelength (1064nm) which causes deeper dermal penetration and more melanin absorption. This laser technique is a safe and successful treatment modality. It is mainly effective for black, brown, blue, and green colored tattoos. However, 532 nm wavelength is used to treat red, orange-colored tattoos. Hence, you can try this laser technique for productive results.
Tattoo removal techniques take a lot more than one sitting. It requires multiple sessions of laser techniques. The session is usually repeated in 3-4 weekly intervals. It requires patience and is painful sometimes depending on the time period and design of your tattoo. But, if it’s a painful process, you can apply topical numbing cream and make your skin comfortable. Also, you have to wait for at least six months if you want the complete removal of your tattoo. Hence, it requires various laser sessions and the process is time-taking.
The most important thing to keep in mind before you think about getting rid of your tattoo is that it should be at least 8-12 months old. It’s best to go for a tattoo removal procedure once the tattoo is mature, which takes around 8-12 months after the tattoo is inked. You need to follow these measures for a successful laser technique.
Excision: Excision is a method of simply cutting off the skin that contains the tattoo. This is advised only for small tattoos as it’s not practical for large tattoos. A surgical scar will be created by this removal method. It’s a painful process so it requires the use of a local, regional, or even general anesthesia depending on the size of the tattoo.
Dermabrasion: Dermabrasion is a surgical method that uses the medical grinding tool to remove the layers of the skin that contain the ink particles, thereby removing the tattoo. The process is too painful and wounds take longer time to heal. It is more painful than laser treatment.
There are other tattoo removal techniques such as plastic surgery but you need to discuss with your Plastic surgeon as visible scarring is an important sequel. Take advice before any treatment as your skin can be sensitive and cause harm.
