Before getting a tattoo removal in Southport, there are several things to take into consideration. First, you have to understand that some tattoos may not disappear completely, and live a ghost image behind. It’s best to talk to a few experts in order to understand just how much of the tattoo can be removed. In some cases, it may be best to go with a cover up instead of a removal. It might also take multiple treatments, depending on the tattoo. The number can be anywhere from 6 to many more sessions.
If you are in Southport, tattoo removal treatments are handled by the most qualified experts in the industry. Each session requires a downtime period, in order to avoid skin irritation and open wounds. This downtime can be anywhere from four to eight weeks. Location is also important to the end result. The closer a tattoo is to the heart, the better the circulation, and thus better results. The ankle for example, is particularly bad place for laser tattoo removal. You then have to take into consideration whether the tattoo was done professionally or not. Professional tattoos are deeper into the skin level and they are more saturated with ink, which makes them much harder to remove.
There are several treatments when it comes to tattoo removal in Southport. Lasers have different wavelengths in order to remove different colours. PicoSure operates on three different wavelengths, but in some cases, additional colours may require a combination of treatments. Once the treatment is done, there are several symptoms which you may encounter, including swelling, blisters, redness, temporary darkening and bleeding.
