The good news for people wanting to remove unwanted tattoo from their bodies is that new laser tattoo removal procedures have made it very easy to get rid of unwanted body designs and that too with minimal side effects. According to Dr. Shumaila, powerful lasers beams eliminate tattoos by breaking up the colors in the tattoo.
Researchers suggest that black tattoos absorb all beams of laser, making it convenient to remove; however, this does not mean that other colors can’t be treated with lasers. We have a variety of laser technologies at the Dermalase; we will treat any colour of tattoo you may have. We select lasers on the basis of the tatoo’s pigment color.
Since each tattoo is different, removal procedures and lasers beams must be selected and planned accordingly. Dr. Shumaila tailors laser tattoo removal technique to each individual’s unique case. People who have in the past undergone unsuccessful tattoo treatment can also be candidates for laser therapy. During the treatment, Dr. Shumaila will make sure that the previous tattoo treatment shall not lead to more scarring.
Not any dermatologist can perform last tattoo removal; therefore, you must select your dermatologist very carefully. Dr. Shumaila, a board certified and licences dermatologist, has several years of experience in laser tattoo removal. She has so far removed dozens of tattoos.
Your tattoo may be completely removed in 2-4 treatment session depending on the color and size of your tattoo. Some types of tattoos may take as much as 9 or 10 sessions.
