Chandler, AZ ( June 30, 2012 - Chandler, AZ, 5/30/2012 - Tattoo removal is sweeping the nation just as fast, if not faster than the original trend of getting a tattoo. When tattoo removal first became available the methods were primitive and the results were questionable. Some of the treatments included dermabrasion, scrubbing the skin with salt, or even the injection of garlic or lime into the tattoo area.

Today the method for removing a tattoo is much more calculated and professional and they certainly yields better results. One of the most common methods used today involves Q-switched lasers for a non-invasive removal. This works by sending color specified wavelengths into the tattoo which causes the ink to be broken down and absorbed naturally into the body. In theory the entire process is quite simple, but the problem is that from start to removal takes a lot more time than most people think.

Each laser removal session can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo but the wait time between treatments is about four to six weeks. This means that if you have a very bright and colorful tattoo is may take 10 sessions to remove the tattoo, which means it will take 10 months or longer for it to be completely removed. If you have a tattoo that is small and not filled in with ink it may only take four to five sessions, which would obviously take significantly less time to remove.

After the treatment is performed it is important that you take particular precautions with the treated area. You should avoid exposing it to sunlight and keep it away from significant heat sources for the next two day. There will most likely be blistering after the treatment and the area may be sensitive. It is important to keep the area clean and free from infections of any form.

One of the most important things for you to remember if you are considering tattoo removal is to find a place that is the right fit for you. You will want to take into account the technicians experience, price, quality of service, type of laser, and how comfortable you feel when you are in the office. All of these factors are extremely important when it comes to the results you will get with your tattoo removal.
