Understanding tattoo removal [Video]
Hi there! Did you know that up to half of the roughly 20 million Americans with a tattoo want it removed? And that's now easier than ever before, due to advances in laser removal technology. The process works like this: Laser beams carefully target the tattooed area, destroying the ink which is embedded in the skin cells. The body then naturally discards of the damaged cells, removing the appearance of the tattoo. The number of treatments needed for the procedure to be a success will vary between individuals, contingent on the size of their tattoo. There are many reasons why someone may choose to remove their ink. Embarrassment, for example, or the desire to improve career prospects. In any case, the major benefit of this procedure is that it can usually remove a tattoo with minimal, if any, damage to the skin.Thanks for watching!
