5 Surprising Factors in Tattoo Removal

  Removing tattoos isn’t as straightforward as erasing a pencil drawing. The variables introduced by the human body influence the removal process in all kinds of ways. Some of the factors that impact the number of laser treatments necessary to remove a tattoo are more obvious than others. Ink depth, density, and color, as well as skin type are a few factors you may figure would influence the process. With any art, there are two players in the removal process — the eraser and the canvas. When using the best, most state-of-the art laser (the Quanta Q Plus) that means that the health of the canvas usually determines how successful the removal is. Generally speaking, healthier bodies see better results because the body processes the shattered ink and heals faster. With that said, here are five of the least known factors that can affect and even prolong the tattoo removal process.

Removal Throwback From the ’70’s

An old method of tattoo removal has created an influx of new clients at Lasercare Tattoo Removal within the last few months.  Desperate for removal, these people opted to have saline or glycolic acid injected into their tattoo using a tattoo machine. The outcome is, predictably, an open wound that will heal to a scar and hopefully that scar will lighten over the years.  While scarring is acceptable to some people, ending up with the tattoo only slightly lighter is not.  This process should only be performed a maximum of two times because of the damage done to the skin, which results in the tattoo only marginally lightened.  At this point there will be significant scarring, which can make the ink more difficult to remove with a laser, but removal is still possible.  Lasercare Tattoo Removal has seen dozens of scarred, unhappy people, who are fortunately now on the way to having their tattoos removed.        The only FDA approved method of tattoo removal is with a...

Why choose Lasercare Tattoo Removal?

Lasercare Tattoo Removal has brought Alaska into the 21st century with the most advanced laser technology on the market today.  We use the Quanta Q Plus laser, the most powerful tattoo removal laser available. The Quanta Q Plus enables Lasercare to remove tattoos of nearly any color without the scarring and intense pain of other less powerful lasers currently in use.  The Quanta’s laser pulse takes less time to reach and destroy ink molecules, and this means less time that the skin is under the laser, therefore reducing the chance for damage to the skin. This stronger laser also means fewer treatments, less pain, and a higher rate of removal success.   Weaker lasers take longer to reach the ink, which results in the laser heating up the skin causing damage and blistering.  Lasercare’s Quanta laser has a broad spectrum of wavelengths specifically designed to destroy ALL colors of ink, so you won’t end up with a partially removed tattoo. Leave the scarring and pain of tattoo removal in...

How Tobacco Use Inhibits Tattoo Removal

If you’ve looked into having laser tattoo removal, you already know that your overall good health is important to success.  Healthy, active people generally have strong immune systems and good circulation, both of which are key to removing ink.  The use of tobacco can seriously hinder even an otherwise healthy person’s tattoo removal success.  We know from a study published in the Archives of Dermatology  that the laser tattoo removal process is 70% less effective for tobacco users.  Perhaps the desire to have your ex’s name removed from your arm will be the incentive you need to quit this deadly habit. Laser tattoo removal works by the laser breaking apart tattoo ink under the skin.  When the fragments are small enough, the body’s lymphatic system is able to surround the particles and flush them out of the body as it would with other foreign substances.  This requires good circulation to the tattooed area and an available immune system that can devote cells to carrying out these fragments. The reasons...
