Tattoos are kinds of body modifications that we do for different reasons. It could be a quote to which we have some sentiment linked, or a design that speaks to you, or even the name of our beloved. However, there are times when some of us regret these permanent inks. We then look for tattoo removal.
The process for getting a tattoo is painful but the process to get the permanent skin off of your skin is even a more painful medical procedure. The tattoo removal procedure is done to get rid of an unwanted tattoo. There are several techniques that are done for the removal. It can be carried out using laser surgery, dermabrasion, or other kinds of surgical procedure. Since the process is complicated and requires the expertise of the performing doctor, tattoo removal costs can be quite high.
There are several reasons why people wish to remove their tattoos. Some of them could be that the tattoo becomes unwanted or at times that tattoo is causing some kind of infection to the skin. Tattoos can start to become blurry after a certain period of time or they are not what you were looking for in the first place, or perhaps the tattoo just does not match your current personality.
Not everyone has an ideal skin for getting tattoos. Tattoos go deeper than the top layer of the skin. For some people, the ink can cause an allergic reaction or even cause infection and pus in the skin. In such cases, there is no other alternative but to get the tattoo removed. Although, you can try using some sort of anti-infectives and get rid of the infection, these remedies cannot always be permanently helpful.
As mentioned previously, there are several procedures through which the tattoo removal procedure can be carried out. The three major approaches to removal of tattoo are listed as following:
The most common medical approach to tattoo removal is laser surgery. For the procedure, specialized lasers are used called Q-switched lasers are used. There are exclusive lasers for dark and light skin. The lasers used for dark skin are called Q-switched Nd: YAG. These lasers will help in avoiding permanent damage to the skin pigment.
While carrying out the procedure, the part of the skin is numbed using local anesthesia. Powerful pulses are applied to the skin aiming at the tattooed area. If the tattoo is multicolored, it might need different kinds of lasers of different wavelengths to get the ink off the skin.
In this procedure, the area of tattooed skin is chilled and numbed. After which the tattooed skin is sanded down by a rotary device to deeper levels. The device has brushes and wheels that are abrasive which will then make the ink loosen up from the skin.
After the completion of this procedure, the affected skin may feel sore and can be swollen. It might take about two to three weeks to recover. This process is also done in combination with laser surgery at times.
Surgical removal of the tattoo is done using a scalpel. The ink and parts of the upper skin are removed and then sutured back. This might take quite some time for the recovery. Although, unlike other procedures, surgical removal of the tattoo has to be done only once. There are rare times when a follow-up surgery is to be carried out.
Though there aren’t as many risks in the tattoo removal medical procedures, there are a few risks that are worth taking note of such as tattoo removal cost if you need your tattoo taken off. Tattoo removal can cause scarring on the skin and the area of the tattoo because, as previously mentioned, the tattoo goes deeper than the top layer of the skin. The scarring is mostly temporary, but at times it could be permanent as well. Skin discoloration is also a possibility, it could become lighter or darker than your original skin color.
Slight infection is also possible for sensitive skin or even if the surgery is not performed carefully by under-experienced doctors. Therefore, you must get to know the performing doctor’s experience in the field.
