While it may seem like a good idea to get a tattoo, there may come a time when it will lose its appeal.About 25-50% of people who get a tattoo ultimately regret the decision and seek removal. Fortunately, Dr. Omar Ibrahimi, a dermatologist inStamford,CT can help you get the tattoo removed via laser treatments.
Laser tattoo removal in Connecticut needs to be done by a highly trained dermatologist such asDr. Omar Ibrahimi. A series of short treatment sessions will be needed to ensure that the tattoo is completely removed. This is because the tattoo isn’t simply erased, instead it’s broken into smaller pieces until it is not visible to the eye.
Before your laser treatment your maybe given some pain medication and throughout the procedure you will be required to wear protective eyewear.The treatment will cover the area of your tattoo and break the ink up. Your immune system will then carry away the degraded ink.
As with any type of medical treatment,the procedure comes with small risks, and this is why it is important to see a physician that understands the physics of laser tattoo removal. Most patients say that this treatment feels like stinging or scratching. Afterwards its common to have some redness,blistering,swelling and even mild pain. However, these symptoms are all relatively mild in nature.
Some ink colors are easier to remove than others. For instance, black ink is the easiest to remove because black actually absorbs all of the colors that make up light. On the other hand, there are some ink colors (i.e. red, green) that require a specific color of laser light to make sure that the tattoo is completely removed.Our office uses state of the art equipment that can handle the full spectrum of tattoo ink colors.
It is important to understand that tattoo removal isn’t going to actually return your skin to the way that it was before you got a tattoo. In fact, some scarring or discoloration (in the shape of the original tattoo) may occur depending upon your skin and the type of tattoo you got. This is because the pigment that is being removed may be either a little bit lighter or a little bit darker than your surrounding skin.
