In recent years there has been a rise in the popularity of body art. Once taboo, tattoos have become a part of regular society and are adorned by men and women of all ages. While there has been a steady rise in the number of people being “inked” we still see people who wish they had the opportunity to change the past. Whether it is spurred by a career change, or simply a change of heart, we can help you with safe laser tattoo removal from the Rendon Center in Boca Raton, FL.
In the past, tattoos were always thought of as permanent. Advancements and innovations in laser technology have now allowed medical professionals to minimize the appearance of unwanted tattoos.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Laser technology has been utilized in the medical field for many decades. The light from the laser breaks up the pigmentation of the tattoo ink that creates permanent color on the skin. The short bursts of laser light cause the ink to break down and then be naturally absorbed by the body.
While one laser tattoo removal treatment may cause the tattoo to fade, a series of treatments is necessary for full removal. The exact number of treatments is determined by the patient’s skin along with the color, size, and location of the tattoo.
There are multiple factors that can affect the result of laser tattoo removal, including the color, size, and quality of the tattoo. During your consultation, Dr. Rendon can give you an estimate of how many treatments are required and potential results from your tattoo removal.
