One doesn’t have to think twice before getting a tattoo anymore because tattoos as we all thought are not permanent anymore. Science has progressed by leaps and bounds and today there are various methods available to get your tattoo removed.
So if you are amongst those who are rethinking your ink then we have some good news for you. Dr. Divya’s Skin and Hair Solutions is the first clinic in Whitefield, Bangalore to introduce World Class ‘Spectra Gold’ Laser for Tattoo removal.
Removal of tattoo using Spectra Gold Laser
The Spectra Gold Laser uses a beam of light to lighten or completely remove your tattoo ink from your skin. Since the tattoo is made up of ink particles, the heat from the light emitted from the lasers breaks these particles into smaller particles which are then easily absorbed by the immune system of the human body.
What is the procedure like?
At Dr. Divya’s Skin and Hair Solutions, we follow the following steps to remove the tattoo ink:
Step 1: Dr. Divya Sharma examines the size of your tattoo and depending on its age, design, the colors used, the type of ink used and how dark the tattoo is, she decides the number of sessions it would require to remove your tattoo.
Step 2: During the session, a numbing cream is applied on the tattoo region. One doesn’t need anaesthesia for this procedure.
Step 3: Laser is targeted on the skin area with the tattoo. A session usually lasts for 10-30 minutes.
Post each session, once the skin has absorbed the particles, the tattoo area may appear to be white, reddish and swollen. Don’t fret, this is normal. The swelling and redness vanishes within weeks of each treatment and the skin regains its original tone after 6-12 months of the last treatment.
One may require repeated sessions depending on the kind of tattoo they have. Usually a gap of 4-8weeks is kept between each session to allow the skin to get rid of as much pigment as possible.
Other available methods of Tattoo Removal:
Dermabrasion is an invasive tattoo removal procedure wherein your doctor uses a medical grinding tool to remove the outer layers of the skin which contains the ink. It is a painful procedure which is conducted usually with local anaesthesia and in some cases even general anaesthesia. The wound takes a long time to heal and one may even have to go for repeated sessions.
Surgical method is another invasive method which surgically removes the skin that contains the tattoo. This leaves a scar behind and like dermabrasion, it is conducted with a local anaesthesia. This is not a practical treatment for big tattoos.
Chemical peels use mild acids that are applied on the skin to remove the outer layer of the skin which contains the ink of the tattoo. This is not a painless procedure and it might cause moderate pain. The recovery time may be up to one week depending on the wound.
