Laser tattoo removal in Iran

Nearly 30 percent of people in the United States have at least one tattoo, which means that about half of every thousand people have one. But not all of them are happy with their decision. 25% of those who have a tattoo say they regret it.

If you’re in that 25 percent, there’s good news. Laser tattoo removal techniques can significantly reduce the appearance of your unwanted tattoo with minimal side effects.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment with a high-intensity beam of light. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. What type of laser is chosen to remove other colors is based on the color of the pigment. Tattoos cannot be completely removed and usually leave a scar.

First, you should consult a trained professional who will evaluate your tattoo and advise you on the procedure. The number of treatment sessions you need depends on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin as well as the depth of tattoo pigment will also affect the removal technique.

In general, here’s what to expect during a laser tattoo removal session:

1. You will be given a pair of eye shields.

2. The technician will test your skin’s reaction to the laser to determine the most effective energy for the treatment.

3. The technician uses a laser to pass intense light pulses through the top layers of your skin, which are only absorbed by the tattoo pigment.

Smaller tattoos require fewer pulses while larger tattoos require more pulses to remove. In any case, several treatment sessions are required to get rid of a tattoo. After each visit, your tattoo should gradually fade.

What points should we pay attention to when removing a tattoo?

Laser tattoo removal is slightly painful, but most patients do not need anesthesia. Depending on the location of your tattoo, you may want to apply a topical numbing cream beforehand.

Immediately after treatment, use an ice pack to soothe the treated area. And use antibiotic cream or ointment and bandage to protect it. You should also make sure to wear sunscreen when you are outside.

What are the side effects of laser tattoo removal?

Laser therapy is often safer than many tattoo removal methods, such as excision, dermabrasion, or salabrasion, because laser therapy selectively treats tattoo pigment and has few side effects. However, you should consider these factors in your decision:

• The site of your tattoo removal is at risk of infection and there is a small chance that you will have a permanent scar.

• It is unlikely that your tattoo will be completely removed. In many cases, some colors may be removed more effectively than others. For example, blue and black tattoos respond well to laser treatment.

• You may end up with hypopigmentation, which means that the skin being treated becomes paler than the surrounding skin. You may also have hyperpigmentation, which makes the affected skin darker than the rest of your skin.

• Beauty tattoos such as lip liner, eyeliner, and eyebrows may darken after treatment but will fade over time.

Find the best doctor

Find a reputable dermatologist or cosmetic surgery center to ensure proper treatment and care. If possible, ask your primary care physician for a referral to a dermatologist or skin surgery center that specializes in tattoo removal.

Because tattoo removal is a personal choice in most cases, most insurance companies will not cover the procedure unless it is medically necessary. Doctors or surgery centers that perform tattoo removal may also require payment in full on the day of surgery.
