Correct tattoo or permanent makeup mistakes
you had permanent lipliner, permanent eyebrow tattoo, or permanent eyeliner
done at some stage, do these now look less attractive than you imagined? Or has
it lost its appeal? No need to fret, because at Lasermed we use the gold-standard
Q Switched ND:YAG to remove undesirable tattoos effectively without scar
formation or pigmentary changes.
Alta van der Merwe explains, “Tattoo removal results vary from person to person, depending on the tattoo’s colour(s), age and whether amateur or professional. But these days, we can remove tattoo ink with fewer treatments and treat ink colours that were once difficult to remove.”
There’s actually a lot to consider before removing a tattoo. This
includes: how long you’ve had the tattoo; how deeply the ink penetrates your
skin; the colours in your tattoo; where the tattoo appears on your body/face; your
health; the medicines you take; and if you’ve ever had a raised scar.
A consultation about tattoo removal can be helpful for you too. It gives you an opportunity to ask questions, plus can see before-and-after photos of other tattoo removals. Lasermed offers you a free consultation.
continues, “When you get a tattoo, the tattoo artist layers the ink. A laser
cannot safely break down all the layers in one treatment session. Time between
treatments is also necessary for your health. Your skin needs time to heal.
After laser tattoo removal, you may see some redness, swelling, and a little
blistering. Your body also needs time to flush out the ink.”
the laser’s light hits the ink, the light shatters the ink into tiny particles.
Your body must flush out these tiny particles.”
each treatment, your tattoo should lighten. Keep all your appointments for laser
tattoo removal because each treatment removes more ink.
Alta warns, “It’s also important to follow our at-home care instructions after a laser tattoo removal session. Apply Bactroban ointment for a few days. Slathering on moisturiser and covering the area until the skin heals are also important. And importantly, use sunscreen liberally and wear clothing that covers the area. If the tattoo removal took place on your face, wear a hat.”
