Facts about tattoo removal

The following text will discuss on the methods of tattoo removal. Location and the size are the two most important factors in determining which of the methods should be used. Also, the time of the tattoo's presence has to be taken in consideration.

Excision

Smaller tattoos are mostly removed with the help from this method, which is very effective in the removal of the whole tattoo. The excision removal method, when done on larger tattoos, will first remove the central area and then the surrounding edges. Of course, this will have to be done in several phases. The area on which the tattoo is will be made numb with the use of a local anesthetic. Surgically, the tattoo will be removed with the sutured edges that are brought to each other. Electrocautry will be used to ensure minimal bleeding, and during this procedure, there may be need for a skin graft to be taken from other body area.

Dermabrasion

The tattoo can be removed via this method, which uses a solution that freezes the skin area covered with the tattoo. It is sprayed on the tattoo and sanded with abrasive instrument, which removes the tattoo.

Laser

Now we move on to maybe the most popular tattoo removal method today and it is the laser removal. Tattoos are mostly removed with Q-switched Ruby, Q-switched Alexandrite and Q-switched Nd:Yag methods, of laser tattoo removal. They basically work in the similar ways. Before the treatments starts, the tattoo area can be numbed with the help of a cream. Then laser is used, and its lights break up the pigments of the tattoo. The treated pigmented regions will be removed by the scavenger cells of the body, which will happen in the following few weeks. Know that the tattoo cannot be removed in one treatment, so it will require several of them.

Selabrasion

Tattoos can be removed with this method, which has been in use for a century. The tattoo and the surrounding area will be administered with a local anesthetic and when this part of the procedure is done, the tap water dipped in tablet salt will be applied on the area and then comes the area abrasion. This can be done with the wooden block placed in gauze or a device used during dermabrasion but something else can be used as well. The color deep red will be the color of the tattoo area after some time of this procedure, and this is when you need to stop and apply dressing. When we talk about the results, color variations and scarring will probably stay. But before you decide which procedure to undergo, discuss it closely with your physician.
