Tattoos are like permanent memories etched into the skin, where there is no escape when there is a reminder we would rather not see constantly. This is one reason why many seek to get such tattoos removed. Or it may be the case that your tattoos no longer represent the person you are today, as people can change over time. Whether you have something in the past on your skin that you need to let go, or you simply want to create a blank slate to provide a canvas for more tattoos that say who you are now, we can help those based in and around Swindon with their tattoo removal needs. Our laser tattoo removal services can help you get back your skin almost to a time before you got the tattoo.
The Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
Swindon clients can take advantage of the latest developments in laser technology now. Whilst older methods made use of photo-thermal energy, this was just at the start of tattoo removal, meaning that although the tattoo ink was targeted, the skin surrounding it would also be impacted. In this time, the tattoo removal process was also more painful, in addition to leaving unwanted marks on the skin. However, modern technological processed for laser tattoo removal mean that only the pigmented skin is targeted, so the skin tissue around your ink will remain untouched and discomfort from the laser should also be minimal.
Lasers at Think B4 You Ink
Here at Think B4 You Ink, we use the Nd:YAG laser, which is recognised as the best in the business throughout the industry. Instead of using the photo-thermal energy that was used in days gone by, this kind of laser emits a high energy light to remove your tattoos. Swindon clients will be able to witness us harness the heat that is created by the laser, which is then used to target the tattoo ink. When the area is targeted by the laser, the ink is fragmented into minute particles. These tiny pigments are flushed away as your skin then naturally absorbs them.
Setting Your Expectations
The laser we use is not a magic wand, so to obtain the best results, it will be necessary to complete the laser removal treatment multiple times. Although the minimum number of sessions required for tattoo removal is usually four, the exact amount of sessions depends on the size of your tattoo, as well as the different colours within the tattoo. For larger tattoos, Swindon customers may need to come for as many as twenty sessions, which is why it’s great to have a local service. The whole process takes time, so it’s important to set your expectations as the skin will need o heal between sessions (hence why we need to spread the treatment over a number of sessions rather than complete in one go).
Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare
To get a better idea of what you can expect, you can see our website for some examples previous clients in Swindon who have opted for laser tattoo removal. When your ink has adequately faded, and your skin has fully healed from the removal process, you are then able to get the area tattooed again.
