Tigard, OR area professional describes how tattoo removal works
The team of Thrive services patients in and around the Tigard, OR area and works closely with patients who are interested in aesthetic medicine and treatments. When patients visit with Dr. Adam Maddox complaining of unwanted tattoos on the body, they are often faced with the idea of laser tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal has been around for many years but continues to improve dramatically on the results.
Unwanted tattoos can be removed with today’s laser technology. Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive uses state-of-the-art lasers that are directed at the skin where the tattoo exists. These lasers break down the inks in the skin. By doing this, it allows the body to absorb them and they appear to fade over time. Breaking down the inks is the only way to achieve safe and effective tattoo removal.
Tattoo removal does not affect the surrounding skin. It just breaks down the inks used to create the tattoo. The effectiveness of treatment will vary depending on several factors which may include the ethnicity of the skin, the length of time the tattoo has been on the body, the quality of the inks used, and the color of the inks. Darker, higher quality inks are going to need several more treatments than low-quality, lighter-toned inks on the skin.
Patients need to understand that laser tattoo removal cannot be done in just one appointment. Laser tattoo removal is a process that needs several sessions in order to effectively reduce the appearance of a tattoo. Patients are urged to consult with Dr. Adam Maddox during their initial consultation appointment to find out how many treatments may be needed to achieve the results desired. Most patients will benefit from around five treatments on average, more or less depending on the factors discussed above.
