So you have a tattoo on your skin that you either a) hate, or b) regret. If this sounds like you, you may be wondering what your options are for removal. While most patients believe that tattoos are permanent, there is one way to successfully remove them: laser tattoo removal.
What is laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a specialized treatment available at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, AB. Drs. Todd and Kent Remington are providers who can use laser light to target tattoo ink in the skin and break it down, reducing its appearance treatment after treatment. With routine sessions, patients can fade their tattoo away and get rid of it—permanently.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser light that penetrates into the skin will break down the ink used in the tattoo. The ink is then naturally absorbed by the body and skin and flushed out through the lymphatic system. This does not happen immediately. Instead, the process takes time and several treatment sessions to complete. Our professionals will help patients determine how long it can take to fully remove their tattoo. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration, including the quality of the tattoo ink, the colors in the tattoo, and how long the tattoo has been in place.
Am I a candidate?
To determine candidacy for this and any other treatments at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre, patients in the community need to schedule a consultation with our providers for a full evaluation and to discuss their skincare goals.
