The art of tattooing has come a long way. Technology has enabled artists to develop different styles, including watercolor effects, three-dimensional artwork, linear drawing styles, and even glow-in-the-dark ink.
Since nearly 50 million people in the United States have a tattoo that they would like to update or cover, laser tattoo removal has gained popularity.
Common Reasons for Tattoo Removal
There are many reasons that both men and women undergo laser tattoo removal. The most popular reason for women between ages 25 and 35 is an upcoming wedding, a new career, or the birth of a child. When events like these occur, we feel like should look the part or adapt our style to who we’ve grown to be. Tattoo regret is also a popular reason that people undergo removal.
With so many new tattoo trends and artists, tattoo regret and life-altering moments aren’t alone at the top of the list of reasons anymore. Today, thanks to the trends mentioned earlier, men and women all over the country are undergoing laser tattoo removal treatments to give their body a new canvas. It isn’t that people are sick of their old tattoo or no longer connect with the reason they got it, but just as people change their hair style over the years, updating one’s ink is part of changing with the times.
As the tattoo industry has changed over time, so has laser tattoo removal technology. Patients who undergo treatments no longer have to worry about severe pain as pigment is eliminated permanently from their skin. The newest laser technology is designed to only target the ink pigment, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Additionally, these new laser machines provide more comfort than older technology. For example, at Body Details True Laser Hair and Tattoo Removal, we generally numb the area to be treated with an ice pack, and we use the Zimmer cryogenic device to cool the skin prior to and during laser tattoo removal treatment. This allows us to provide the maximum level of comfort. Most patients say the sensation that laser tattoo removal treatment causes is much less painful than getting the tattoo in the first place.
