Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments at Body Details Boynton Beach
Getting a tattoo is always an exciting experience. But sooner or later, you may realize that you just don’t like your ink. If you want to have your tattoo removed, we can help. Body Details specializes in laser tattoo removal in Boynton Beach. We use the most advanced technology to make the process as easy and painless as possible.
There are topical treatments available that are advertised to help eliminate tattoos. But when you understand how tattoos are removed, it’s easy to see that they just don’t work. In order to fully eliminate a tattoo, you need to go below the top level of the skin. That’s where laser tattoo removal comes in. Lasers target the deeper layers of the skin to remove the ink.
After just a few short sessions, you can have your tattoo removed altogether. Call us at (561) 325-7320 to schedule your free consultation. Or, you can come by our location at 1880 N Congress Ave Suite 140, Boynton Beach, Florida 33426 to speak with one of our Boynton Beach laser tattoo removal experts today!
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
After you get a tattoo, your body sees the ink as a sort of invader. So, your immune system will slowly start to break down the ink into small particles, which it can then eliminate from your body. With enough time, your body would eliminate all of your tattoos on its own. Laser tattoo removal speeds up that process by breaking down the ink into smaller particles for your immune system to eliminate.
Unlike some of our other services, like laser hair removal, you probably won’t notice any progress after your first session. There’s actually a strong possibility that your tattoo will appear darker. This is because our laser technology targets the deepest layers of the skin first, where the ink has already started fading.
Many of our clients report that tattoo removal has a similar sensation as actually getting a tattoo. To minimize discomfort, we will numb the area with an ice pack before we start the procedure. Then, we use cryogenic technology to keep your skin cold and numb during and after the process.
Each session takes between 10 minutes and an hour, depending on the location and size of the tattoo. Your tattoo may be removed after about 5 to 6 sessions, each 10 weeks apart, but some tattoos require more work. It’s important to follow all aftercare protocols that are provided by your laser tattoo technician to ensure the area heals properly.
Why Choose Body Details
At Body Details, we use our patented True Laser® Technology to ensure you have the best experience getting your tattoo removed. Our laser technology is rated Class IV by the FDA, which means it’s the strongest laser currently available to remove tattoos.
While some other laser systems are only effective on light skin-dark tattoo combinations, we can adjust our wavelengths to match any complexion. In addition, we can also adjust the wavelength to remove tattoos on sensitive areas without elevated discomfort.
Every technician who performs laser tattoo removal at Body Details holds a Master’s Degree as a Physician’s Assistant (PA) or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). We also ensure our technicians are trained by the manufacturers of our tools so they know exactly how they work. Our board of Medical Directors oversees every procedure.
What are the side effects of laser tattoo removal?
The side effects associated with laser tattoo removal are similar to those that are common when you get a tattoo. You may experience redness, swelling, blistering, bruising, tenderness and other conditions. It’s important to note that these side effects are temporary, so long as you follow the aftercare procedures explained by the professional who is treating you.
If you don’t follow these procedures closely, you could end up with infections, scarring and other issues. Be sure to keep the area out of direct sunlight, including tanning beds. You should also avoid swimming after your session. Keep the area clean, and use a moisturizing cream. Perhaps most importantly, do not pick at any scabs or blisters that form!
How many laser tattoo removal treatments are needed to completely remove an unwanted tattoo?
The number of laser tattoo removal treatments a person needs depends on several factors. Tattoos that are done by a professional with high quality ink tend to be more difficult to remove, as the tattoo artist’s intention was to make sure their art lasted a lifetime. Certain colors also take more time to remove. Plain black is one of the easiest ink color to remove using lasers.
Many people don’t realize that tattoos closer to the heart will fade faster than those located on the extremities, since they’re located in an area with the best circulation. A person’s immune system will also affect the number of treatments required because it’s the body’s response to the broken-up ink particles that allows tattoo removal in the first place. Skin sensitivity level and skin type are also factors, so it’s best to consult a licensed medical laser technician to determine a more accurate timeline.
How long will it take to get my tattoo removed?
Like laser hair removal in Boynton Beach, the number of tattoo removal treatments required varies by individual, but most clients need at least 5 treatments. You must wait at least 10 weeks between each session. So, your tattoo may be removed in about a year. Fortunately, every Body Details tattoo removal treatment package includes an all inclusive price backed in writing by our Free Lifetime Guarantee at no extra cost.
