The Gift of Laser Tattoo Removal

The holiday season is practically here! And that means a lot of people will be shopping for presents in the coming weeks. You know what many people have gotten as gifts in the past? Tattoos. You know what many people will be getting as gifts in the future? Tattoo removal. That isn’t to say that tattoos are going out of style. But that also isn’t to say that all tattoos stay in style.

It’s important to consider what kind of gift a tattoo is. It’s meant to be a permanent fixture on your body. It’s something that is meant to never be removed. And as such, you would think that most people would select a design that has deep sentimental meaning. You would think that most people would be 100% sure that their choices would be things they’d be able to live with forever.

Not so. In fact, a growing number of people are finding that their once-loved tattoos are no longer fashionable or as meaningful as they once were. So for many, their tattoos are gifts that they wish they could return. Not so easy though, is it? It’s not like you can peel a tattoo off and return it to the artist who designed it. Laser Tattoo Removal is a bit of a different process.

The good thing is, advances in technology have helped for the Laser Tattoo Removal process to be as safe and effective as ever. If you know someone who is regretting their old tattoos, perhaps a session or two under the laser would be the ideal gift this holiday season. At DermMedica, the Q–Switch Alexandrite laser is used for the safe and effective removal of tattoos.

This awesome laser specializes in removing all colours, including green which has been known to present problems for other tattoo removal lasers. When a tattoo artist creates his or her piece or your skin-based canvas, the ink is deposited quite deep into your skin. In order to remove this ink, the Q–Switch Alexandrite laser emits high amounts of energy to destroy the deposited ink particles.

For black tattoos, generally four to eight sessions are required. For coloured tattoos, more sessions are usually needed. Naturally, the size and even the age of your tattoo will be factored into the number of sessions you may need for full removal. Sessions are often quite quick as well. In fact, most take only a matter of minutes, depending how big the tattoo is, of course.

In this YouTube video, an example of Laser Tattoo Removal using the Q–Switch Alexandrite laser is shown. Even for this pretty detailed flower tattoo, only five minutes are needed for the session to be completed. Are you looking to give yourself or someone you know the gift of Laser Tattoo Removal this holiday season? It may just be the perfect present!
