Tattoos have been a way to decorate the human body for thousands of years. In 1991 a body was discovered in the Austrian Alps, preserved frozen in ice, dating back to 3300 BC and he had dozens of tattoos. From ancient China to Egypt, tattooing as an art has been part of human culture throughout recorded history. And surely as long as man has decorated himself with these designs and emblems he has had some regrets. Whatever the motives, removing an unwanted tattoo is possible and can be performed in most cases with outstanding results and without scarring.
Laser is an extremely effective method for getting rid of unwanted tattoos. There are a number of factors which will influence the treatment, for example the colors of the ink, the type of lasers available to your treating physician, and the size of the tattoo. Each tattoo is unique and each patient is also unique. Amateur tattoos, which often tend fade on their own, are generally much easier to remove. Multicolored professional tattoos with red, blue, yellow and other colors may require numerous treatment sessions before being totally erased. Black inks tend to come out quite easily, while green and white can be troublesome and require multiple wavelengths to be removed. The removal of tattoos involves laser light being absorbed by the skin cells surrounding the ink of the tattoo so the body may remove the ink. If you are interested in removing a tattoo, the best thing to do is to consult with a physician with a great deal of experience in the process.
