Most people with tattoos have at least one tattoo that they would like to erase. Maybe you got the “no regrets” tattoo that you indeed regret. Maybe you have the Chinese symbols that don’t actually mean what you were told they meant. Whatever the reason, you’ve found a tattoo removal specialist and have even gone in for a few laser treatment sessions. There’s one small problem, however. Your tattoo isn’t coming off and you’re wondering if this is all a waste of time. If you’re going through a tattoo removal with poor results, here are the top four reasons you may be having trouble with the process.
Age of Your Tattoo
The older your tattoo is the easier it can be removed with laser treatment. Since tattoos tend to fade over time on their own, the ink can more easily be broken down using fewer laser sessions. On the other hand, if you have a newer tattoo, it’s likely going to take multiple sessions with more powerful lasers than would be required for older ones.
Laser Not Powerful Enough
Simply put, the laser that is being used in your treatment has to be strong enough to break down the ink pigments and erase the tattoo. The problem is that many of the lasers being used today either do not possess the power necessary to efficiently and effectively break up the ink or have too much power that can damage the skin. Of all the tattoo removal tips, this one can cause the most short and longer-term damage if not executed properly.
Wrong Laser Wavelength Being Used
The wavelength on the laser being used differs depending on the color ink that was in the tattoo. Black, and dark colors overall, are the easiest to remove while colors such as blue and green are some of the more difficult colors to remove. For example, a 1064nm laser can get the job done for an all-black tattoo but won’t do much for a colored tattoo.
The most important way to improve your tattoo removal experience is to have a technician with the appropriate level of experience. Not only do they need to know the right wavelength to use to remove the tattoo in the shortest amount of time, but they should also how much of it to use to prevent your skin from being damaged. If your technician doesn’t have the right experience, then removing your tattoo may take longer than it should, or it may not come off at all.
