Tattoos are an old belief of religion, culture and status symbol in various parts of the world. In older times, it has been said that one thing you take after death with you is your tattoos. Sometimes, tattoos art might go wrong or outdated with the changing fashion or due to some infection caused by the tattoo, people wish for the tattoo removal. With advanced scientific techniques like laser surgery, surgical removal and derma abrasion, your tattoos can be removed.
A special type of laser releases energy in a single powerful pulse are used for tattoo removal on different skin colours. Initially, the skin is numbed with local anaesthesia then a powerful pulse of energy is applied to the tattoo to heat and shatter the tattoo ink. On the contrary, multicoloured tattoos require various lasers with different wavelengths. The after effect of removal might cause swelling/blistering and bleeding which can be healed by using anti-bacterial ointment. This process is required to be repeated and this does not ensure complete removal of tattoos. We have various US FDA approved lasers which are effective in removing coloured and non-coloured tattoos. Doctor’s Point recommends the use of Q Switch lasers.
