You could be like many people looking for a fresh start. Perhaps you have gone through youth and come out on the other side wishing that you had never had your body inked with tattoos. These days, you have realized that while your tattoos were expensive, they have not earned you so much as a dime. Instead, they may have even kept you from making the most of your life. Perhaps this is why you are looking into laser tattoo removal.
Creams Do Not Work So Well
You have probably heard of methods for getting rid of tattoos involving some kind of topical cream. This cream might be cheap, it may have herbal components and it might even be sold to you by a reputable online store. Unfortunately, rarely do remedies like these get to the heart of the problem of removing a tattoo from your body. The problem is that the ink that is exhibited in your tattoo is not located on the surface of your skin. So, this poses a little problem, since the cream is likely not going to reach as deep into your skin as some other method might.
How Lasers Work to Remove Tattoo Ink
When it comes to removing tattoos, laser tattoo removal is the most effective way to get the job done. This is because a laser will actually be able to penetrate deep into your layers of skin where the ink of your tattoo has settled. As the photon energy collides with the ink in your tattoo, the ink molecules will shatter into smaller pieces. This effectively makes it possible for your body to remove the disrupted ink molecules in your skin like it removes other waste products.
Old and Faded
The great thing about getting rid of old tattoos is that they have already started to fade to a significant degree. The reason this is good news is because it could take far less laser tattoo removal sessions to remove these kinds of tattoos.
