Tattoo Removal is a new service offered at Skinny Me. Please call us at 803-980-8446 or stop by 850 Cherry Road, Rock Hill for more information. For a while, we have assumed that once tattooed that’s it – the image or words are there for life. Then came tattoo cover-ups, allowing ink that people had grown tired of or grown out of to be covered up with a new design by experienced, talented artists.
Now at Skinny Me, our physicians have been trained in tattoo removal. This advanced laser removes tattoos, whether recent, old, blue, green or multi-colored.
While the chosen design of a tattoo is often enough to incite later regret, getting a tattoo in the first place comes with health risks. Such as allergic reactions. Risks also occur when going an unsafe route to removing tattoos. This is done by using dermabrasion methods to “sand down” the skin. This can cause a lot of pain and scarring.
A recent survey revealed that nearly one-third of people experience tattoo-regret. Currently, laser treatments are the most common and preferred tattoo removal method. Laser tattoo removal emits a focused beam of laser light. It passes through the skin’s outer layer before being absorbed by the tattoo ink. Then breaks the pigment into smaller particles that are eventually removed by the body’s natural healing processes. With today’s technology, tattoo removal responds positively to lasers.
At Skinny Me, we have the highly-advanced laser that uses short bursts of energy for the safe removal of deep tattoos. This includes the removal of multicolored, blue, green, and dark ink in fewer treatments. Multi-colored, blue-green and dark tattoos tend to be the most difficult to eliminate as their pigments are usually more concentrated. They are usually placed deeper within the skin. With patience, persistence, and an experienced laser physician, they may be able to remove dark, stubborn tattoos in fewer treatments without damaging surrounding skin.
While your treatment at Skinny Me depends on many factors. Most tattoos require at least three to four treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, for tattoo removal.
