Tattoo Removal

What Is Tattoo Removal?

Do you have a tattoo that you don’t like? Tired of gazing at an out-of-date tattoo you got when you were younger? Are you dissatisfied or remorseful about the positioning of your ink?
Whatever the cause, if you’re ready to get a tattoo erased, Unique Clinic can help. A tattoo can be meaningful and long-lasting to a person, yet it can simply be a transitory fad. Around 25% of Americans have tattoos, and roughly half of them will eventually want their tattoos erased.
Tattoo removal is considerably safe and simple, with fewer adverse effects.

In only a few sessions, you may get rid of undesirable tattoos. There are no scars or markings on the body. There is nothing except clear, healthy skin.
Heavy metal compounds such as lead, copper, and manganese are commonly used in tattoo inks. Mercury is even present in certain red inks. Tattoos are permanent because of the metals in their ink.
Q-switch lasers, often known as tattoo removal lasers, produce heat, are quick, and operate at a restricted frequency. Breaking apart the ink particles in a tattoo requires both heat and speed. A laser injects powerful light into the skin, causing it to expand due to the heat, and the speed must be fast enough to avoid burning the skin. After that, it enters the skin to break up the ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade. These pigments will eventually be removed by the body’s immune system. The laser light is completely safe and only affects pigmented skin, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Our lasers can erase complex tattoos without harming the surrounding skin since they have short pulses with high strength and great absorption. We are industry experts in tattoo removal services, having been involved in the clinical development of several of the technologies used for this purpose.
Different color inks require different lasers for optimal benefit. Therefore, we frequently mix and match our multiple lasers with varied ink colors to maximize success. It is not unusual for many lasers to be used on a tattoo during a single treatment session.
Healing time is usually less than a week once the tattoo begins to lighten. We recently devised strategies for quickly removing blue, green, and yellow ink when removal was previously impossible. Repetitive therapy sessions are frequently required at one to two-month intervals.
We also treat cosmetic tattoos on the eyelids, brows, and lips and “road burn” injuries, and radiation tattoos. Again, the procedures are painless since we use a topical anesthetic to alleviate any discomfort.

What Can I Expect From This Laser Tattoo Removal?

Tattoos of average size can be removed with a laser in about ten minutes, but tattoos of larger sizes or those with more complex designs can take longer. Laser tattoo removal is said to feel like the actual process of tattooing. Your laser removal specialist should be able to provide you with assistance to make your procedure easier.
Depending on variables such as skin tone, surrounding skin, tattoo colors, tattoo size, location on the body, and lifestyle habits, the number of treatments required can vary.
Tattoo removal treatment sessions usually occur every 6-8 weeks depending on the type and size of your tattoo. You will be given a laser tattoo removal treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. The tattoo removal process will be longer for larger tattoos.

Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare

After laser tattoo removal, patients should not expose themselves to the sun or tanning beds for one week after treatment. Laser tattoo removal is quick, but can cause discomfort, so cool air is used to soothe the area. Tattoo removal doesn’t end after the procedure has been done. In order to speed up ink elimination and achieve the best results, tattoo removal treatments require aftercare to speed up the removal process. You should take as much care as you can to repair the area after laser tattoo removal. It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks for the tattoo to completely heal.

1- During the first 48 hours after laser tattoo removal, do not exercise. The tattoo and surrounding skin will be extremely tender, and an infection could result

2- While it is fine to take a shower two hours after a laser tattoo removal session, you should avoid a high-pressured shower, soaking in the bath or hot tub for at least 24 to 28 hours afterward.

3- After a laser tattoo removal, stay out of the sun. If you must go outside, use a good sunscreen and cover the afflicted region with clothes.

4- Use a mild soap to clean the area, and do not rub or pat dry the affected area. During the healing process, the tattoo removal area should be kept clean and dry.

5- Itchy tattoo removal areas should not be scratched.

6- Having blisters after laser tattoo removal is a normal way your body is healing the wound and removing the tattoo pigment. Don’t pick at the blisters. Apply an antibiotic ointment if blisters have popped. Allow your body to break the blisters naturally.

7- Paracetamol for pain relief should be taken if the tattoo removal procedure causes pain in the area. Avoid Aspirin as it can cause bleeding and bruising.

8- Keep your tattoos free of scabs and avoid picking out the scabs. Trying to remove or scratch the scab will lead to infections and scarring.

9- After tattoo removal, avoid shaving the area until it has fully healed.

10- Apply a cold compress to the tattoo removal area if it feels sunburned.
