One in Five Persons Have Tattoo’s on Their Skin!
Today, almost everyone has a tattoo, or if we have to be precise, one in five have one regardless of age and place. Tattoos are a permanent symbol of emotions, beliefs, customs or passions.
Another interesting fact is that about half the people who made his tattoo no longer want it or want a replacement. If our priorities are changing, tattoos are becoming a constant reminder of the past and many people are trying to get rid of it or forget.
There are different methods to remove tattoos. Here are five most popular of them:
Tattoo Laser Removal
The most used method of tattoo removal is laser therapy. The pulses of light from the laser is directed at the tattoo to remove its pigment. Broken ink under the skin of tiny particles into the blood and hence immune system disposes and clears. The lasers have different wave length and pulse width (the time of the irradiation of the skin). Uncomfortable with this procedure is that the result is not achieved in a single treatment. The more procedures are performed, however, the more damage is applied to the skin and the more painful it.
Surgical Tattoo Excision
A cosmetic surgeon removes the tattoo area of the skin and sutured place with surgical stitches. The surgeon can graft skin from another part of the body to the affected area to speed healing if the tattoo is too large. Of course, the scar and the risk of infection is as big as with any surgery.
Dermabrasion acts as aggressive peels. The tattoo is divided into small parts that are treated one after another, previously cooled. Each part is treated with an abrasive tool, while colored pigment persists. Bleeding during the procedure is likely and binding site should be treated as a wound to prevent infection. Dermabrasion is painful and leaves scars and discoloration on the skin.
