The Dangers of Laser Tattoo Removal
Let’s imagine you were suddenly stripped of all your discernment and told to select a method of tattoo removal that most people consider preferable – Laser tattoo removal.
Would you make this selection based off the popular opinion?
While flavors of ice cream and vacations spots can be selected by popularity, when it comes to the removal of permanent mark in the skin, like a tattoo, the popular way may not be the best.
Even if we are talking about the big bold letters spelling “Kimberly”, that your current girlfriend “Nancy” doesn’t feel comfortable with, taking a moment to consider the facts can save you from a world of hurt.
Following is my expert opinion on the matter I have formed from seeing many a tragic tale unfolds.
If you are considering a laser tattoo removal here are the things you should know.
Most doctors and clinics won’t tell you these, so we felt obligated to write this post.
Lets get started.
1. Laser Tattoo Removal Damages Your Skin Cells
Your laser-wielding doctor will explain that the specially designed laser will only target the inked cells within the skin.
Special calibration and precision targeting will allow the beam to pass the skin and only affect the tattoo below.
What they don’t say is that the powerful laser has one objective, to vaporize the inks below the skin and thereby severely damage the skins cells nearby.
This laser rapidly dehydrates the cells affected by the tattoo.
While a small number of cells may be damaged without a visible problem, this is hard to determine.
Too many cells being destroyed simultaneously and the advent of scarring can soon ensue.
Each session with your laser removal technician and the likelihood of a serious scar development increases.
This brings us to the second peril of laser removal the increased likelihood of horrible scarring after numerous removal sessions.
Because, laser removal is a harsh procedure, most doctors will need to recommend several appointments to complete a task.
2. You Might Get Scars (probably will)
Keloid scarring is the result of an overgrowth of scar tissue forming in and around the tattoo, this is one of the worst side effects of a laser tattoo removal.
In addition to a discoloration, the keloid scar tends to pile upon itself and can appear as layers and textured to any degree of severity.
The worst, a keloid scar i a typically tough customer and can remain for a lifetime and repel the best attempts to hide them.
3. Laser Removal is Uneven & Might Not Work
Remember that the capacity for a laser to remove the ink depends on the way the specific beam interacts with the inks below the surface of your skin.
That’s way sometimes, people complain that the ‘laser treatment didn’t work‘ for them.(click the link to go to the article we wrote on it).
Like we mentioned before, it’s extremely hard for the laser to remove detailed tattoos, that are colorful.
A multicolored tattoo can leave a very uneven final product.
Furthermore, dark blacks and blues will never be fully removed.
So you end up with a “ghost” or faded version of your old tattoo. Who wants that? nobody! ha.
4. It Can Be Extremely Painful
We know, thats not really a ‘danger’, but is it not really?
Unless you’re a masochist, we don’t see a reason for choosing the painful way if you can use a natural, pain free way instead.
That’s why w’ere avid fans of ‘the laserless tattoo removal guide‘ (<-link). It doesn’t involve pain!
To Laser or Not To Laser? That’s The Question!
So, is it Worth It? that’s your decision to make.
