There are so many reasons why a person may be interested in getting rid of a tattoo. The tattoo may have been incorrectly applied, it may be fading or has somehow changed over time, or a person may regret what the tattoo actually stands for. The great news is that laser tattoo removal can help you. If you live in the San Diego area, we invite you to contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced professionals.
There are several different factors that will affect how many tattoo removal sessions you may need and the kind of results that you can get. For example, the color of the tattoo is something that will determine how easy or how difficult it is to remove. Different techniques may be used to break up different colors.
It is good for individuals to get familiar with how the laser tattoo removal process works in order to have realistic expectations when they visit our office in San Diego for their treatments. When your tattoo is applied, the ink is inserted under the skin. Your body is constantly looking for ways to remove that ink, but since the particles are large, it usually does not have success. Over the years, you may see some fading of the tattoo, and this is the reason why: The cells in your blood are constantly trying to break up the ink and remove them since it is a foreign body.
When you have laser tattoo removal performed here in San Diego, we will direct carefully controlled laser energy at the ink. This will break up that ink. That way, your blood cells will be able to remove the smaller particles.
It is unrealistic to think that you will come in for one session and then walk away without the tattoo on your body. You are likely to need a series of treatment sessions in order to get the best results. Our team at Viva Wellness Medical Group will help you determine how many sessions you will need when you come in for your consultation at our office in San Diego. We are going to look at where the tattoo is located, the color of the tattoo, the age of the tattoo, and other factors to give you an estimate of how many sessions are needed.
