Millions of Americans have tattoos, unfortunately, some now feel that their tattoos are not appropriate for their new image or career. At Rao Dermatology, we use safe and effective tattoo removal techniques to help people get rid of their tattoos. If you’re wondering whether this treatment in NJ is right for you, you don’t have to worry. Dr. Rao understands what an important decision this is and has provided some quick facts about tattoo removal.
Who Is the Right Candidate for Tattoo Removal in NJ?
You are a good candidate for tattoo removal if you are in good health, eat a well-balanced diet and don’t smoke. If you have a strong immune system, you will quickly dispose of broken-down ink particles during tattoo removal in NJ. You must, therefore, be in good health to undergo this treatment.
What Happens during the Treatment?
During a tattoo removal session, our dermatologist will offer you protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser energy. Your dermatologist will then apply tattoo removal laser energy to the skin. The energy will heat the skin and shatter the tattoo ink. The whole treatment process will take a few minutes to one hour depending on the region of the body being treated. Superficial spots on your body will fade within a few weeks after the treatment.
Is the Laser Treatment Safe?
Tattoo removal in NJ is safe. The lasers that our experts use do not pose any risks because of their ability to selectively target tattoo pigmentation without affecting the surrounding tissues. Besides, all tattoo removal treatments are overseen by certified physicians.
How Many Treatment Sessions Are Required?
The number of treatment sessions required varies depending on many factors such as the size, the location of the tattoo, the color of the ink, and age of the tattoo being treated. In general, single-color, black tattoos require several sessions to disappear completely. Large tattoos with deeper pigmentation also need multiple treatment sessions to disappear completely.
