One thing is for certain in this life – we’re all going to make mistakes. For some, this ends up being in the form of a tattoo they had done when they were in a different stage of life. That tattoo can sometimes cause regret or even embarrassment.
In the past, if you paid to have a tattoo applied, you were stuck with that decision for the rest of your life. Thanks to technological advancements over the years, laser tattoo removal now offers a real solution for this problem. It also involves minimal side effects and down time compared to surgical methods.
Treatments usually do not leave scars nor significant burns on treated skin. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove since they absorb all wavelengths. If you have a multi-coloured tattoo, however, be prepared for a more intensive treatment as coloured ink requires the use of different laser wavelengths.
In addition, most people report very minimal pain when it comes to laser tattoo removal. That being said, not everybody’s pain threshold is the same. If your tolerance for pain is more on the low side, you may need to focus more on the benefits of having your tattoo removed, than the pain associated with the removal process!
