About Laser Tattoo Removal
As tattoos become more prevalent, so does tattoo removal. While the reasons to get a tattoo vary greatly, people’s lifestyles change over time, and often their desire for having a tattoo diminishes. Other reasons for removing a tattoo may simply be a change in taste, where the individual desires a different tattoo, or perhaps a new work environment or relationship makes an existing tattoo no longer acceptable. No matter the reason for wanting a tattoo removed, there is good news: Tattoos are no longer permanent and irreversible. A skilled professional can safely and effectively remove tattoos through a series of treatments. Even more exciting is that tattoo removal is pain-free with laser tattoo removal!

Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser treatment is often safer than many other tattoo removal methods, such as excision, dermabrasion, or salabrasion because laser treatment only treats the pigment in the tattoo. There are very few, if any side effects from this procedure.
Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. It’s important to ONLY have tattoo removal done by a trained professional. To be considered for laser tattoo removal, the first step is to book a consultation with a laser removal specialist. They’ll be able to inspect your tattoo and advise you on how many treatments may be required and if there are any issues that may impede success. They will also advise you on what to expect, and how long healing from the procedure should be. Depending on the size, age and ink used in the tattoo, treatment times may vary.
At Lipogenex, we’re excited to offer this safe, effective and pain-free solution for tattoo removal. Stop living with a tattoo you regret! If you’re ready to learn more about laser tattoo removal, contact our office today and book a free consultation to learn what your options are.
