So you have made the decision to get your tattoo removed. In addition to finding a clinic and making your first appointment, there are a few options to consider when it comes to tattoo removal.
Laser tattoo removal – We are a laser tattoo removal clinic and can confidently say that laser tattoo removal works and it is your best option for complete tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal delivers the best results and is safe and affordable.
Some things to consider when choosing laser tattoo removal are: the amount of time laser tattoo removal takes and the cost of laser tattoo removal. These questions can be addressed during your consultation, so there are no surprises.
Excision – Excision or surgical removal is an option in which a surgeon cuts the tattoo out of the skin. Excision is an invasive and expensive procedure, but may be a good choice for smaller tattoos. There is a greater chance for scarring and loss of pigmentation in the skin. Depending on the size of the tattoo, the type of anesthesia, and whether or not skin grafts are needed, surgical excision can cost thousands of dollars.
Cover-up – Another option is to lighten the tattoo with laser tattoo removal and get a cover-up on top of the faded ink. This is a good option for people who want to keep their ink while changing the design of the tattoo. Lightening tattoos for a cover-up generally take 3-5 sessions.
There are a few things to consider when opting for a cover-up. Tattooing over a tattoo may be harder to remove in the future because there is more ink for the laser to break down. Also, there may be limits to the cover-up tattoo, such as size or colors, because of the existing ink – even if it is lightened.
Tattoo removal cream is an option, but it is an option that doesn’t work. Read more about tattoo removal cream here.
