There is no question that tattoos have become more mainstream. In fact, a 2008 study showed 25% of adults 30-39 and 32% of adults 25-29 have at least one tattoo. And while increasing visibility may mean more acceptance, a recent CNN news feature revealed there are mixed opinions when it comes to the workplace. Whether you feel like you’ve outgrown that tattoo you got when you were 18 or you want to present a more professional appearance in order to get your dream job, laser tattoo removal may be your solution.
Tattoo removal in the past often required surgery and/or skin grafts. These procedures were not only painful but often left patients scarred. Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center offers the latest laser tattoo removal technology. RevLITE laser tattoo removal treatment targets the ink while leaving healthy skin cells intact, therefore reducing scar tissue formation. The relatively new Q-Switched lasers, found in RevLITE, remove tattoos with light energy that is absorbed into the tattoo ink, breaking the ink into tiny particles that then can be removed by the body’s natural filtering system. This revolutionary new system can remove many types of tattoos – professional, amateur, traumatic and surgical tattoos. A typical tattoo may take 6-10 treatments to remove. Factors that affect the number of treatments include color of tattoo, color of your skin, type of ink used, as well as the size and location of the tattoo.
