Everyone with a tattoo has been told by someone that it’ll be on their body forever. It’s a permanent choice, something that you have to live with for the rest of your life. After hearing that sentiment expressed again and again, laser tattoo removal probably seems too good to be true. After all, you were supposed to be stuck with the ink, even if you decided you didn’t want it around anymore.
Fortunately, tattoo removal isn’t just a dream. It’s real and it absolutely does work. It’s given many people a new lease on their lives and their bodies, and it can do the same for you.
Will It Work on Every Tattoo?
Laser removal works on nearly every tattoo. The number of sessions necessary to completely remove a tattoo will vary and depends on factors like the following.
- Ink content
- Ink color
- Age of tattoo
- Skin color
All of these factors affect the difficulty of tattoo removal. Professionally done tattoos tend to take longer to remove than amateur ones. Older tattoos are typically quicker to resolve than newer ink. However, there are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to tattoo removal, as each tattoo and each body is different.
Fortunately, Clear Out Ink offers free consultations and can give you an excellent idea of what to expect. They’ll evaluate your tattoo, discuss options, and let you know what upcoming sessions might look like. The bottom line is, if you have unwanted ink, there’s a very high chance that it can be removed.
Does It Remove Color?
While certain types of lasers leave behind red, orange, and yellow pigments, others can remove everything. Clear Out Ink uses Quanta Q plus C, which is the only 3-wavelength system. That means it removes all types of pigment.
- 1064 Wavelength – Grey, black, dark blue, and brown tones
- 694 Wavelength – Blue and green tones
- 532 Wavelengths – Orange, red, and yellow tones
Even if you have a highly pigmented, professional tattoo, the Quanta Q plus C system should be able to remove it. It’s important to schedule a consultation beforehand, but Clear Out Ink uses a truly state-of-the-art system and provides certified laser safety training for the absolute best experience possible.
What Does the Laser Do?
Perhaps it all still seems too good to be true. How could a laser possibly remove a tattoo? The idea behind it is fairly simple. The laser uses a high-intensity beam to break up the pigment used to create the tattoo.
Some pigments, like black ink, absorb all wavelengths and respond to treatment more easily. Others require special lasers that correspond to the wavelengths listed above. The process is the same regardless and the laser breaks up the pigment until it’s no longer present.
You’re not stuck with your tattoo forever. Don’t let those old warnings keep playing in your head. If you have a tattoo that you regret or just don’t want on your body anymore, schedule a consultation with Clear Out Ink to reclaim your skin!
