How to remove tattoo – Dermatologist’s Advice
Many people get a tattoo on different parts of the body, some feel happy but some of them regret their decision afterward. But treating is better than regretting and that’s why tattoo removal treatments are getting successful day by day. There are many treatments for tattoo removal and all are effective in their place. It is obvious that these treatments have some side effects but benefits are greater in comparison to side effects. Many options are available for tattoo removal treatments like- surgery, lotions, creams, and laser. However, the laser is counted as the best treatment for tattoo removal, so here is the answer to the question, how to remove tattoo?
Like other surgical treatments, surgical excision cuts the tattoo from the skin and then the dermatologist sews the skin back. Surgical excision is effective in removing tattoo but it leaves a scar in place of the tattoo. The method is little painful and causes irritation and itching too.
In this treatment, dermatologist removes the tattoo skin layer by layer and finally the tattoo completely vanishes. The problem with this method is also same, it leaves a scar or pale area after removal of the tattoo but it is really effective in getting rid of the tattoo. Alike surgical excision it is also painful and causes irritation and itching of the skin.
Laser treatment- the best treatment
It is an advanced and much effective treatment for removal of the tattoo. It leaves behind clear skin and prevents scars or any pale area. High energy light of the laser is used to break the tattoo into tinier particles which are further absorbed by the skin. According to the size, color, type of ink used, and age of tattoo, you might need to take more than one session to remove the tattoo completely. The treatment can cause slight discomfort that could be eliminated by taking any local anesthesia. Redness of skin and itching lasts for 3 to 7 days and there is nothing to worry about that. Make sure to prevent skin from sun rays by suing bandage or anything else as it could cause problems.
Intense Pulsed Light treatment
More or little it works in a manner similar to laser treatment. Pulses of light are emitted to the skin for the removal of tattoo and the further process is similar to laser treatment. However, the treatment is said to be more effective than laser. According to dermatologists, it is less painful than laser treatment and removes the tattoo efficiently in comparison to the laser. Still, laser treatment is preferred over Intense Pulsed Light treatment as IPL is much expensive than laser treatment.
