debunking laser tattoo removal myths

Have you ever wondered what’s true and what’s false when it comes to laser tattoo removal?  With old myths still around, it can be hard to distinguish which ones are true vx. misleading.  Educating yourself on these myths can be the easiest way to ease your mind when considering laser tattoo removal.

Myth # 1: Black ink is impossible to remove. 

FALSE:  Of all the colours, black ink responds best to laser light and absorbs all wavelengths.  Contrary to popular belief, black ink is one of the easiest colours to remove.  It also has fewer additives, which can make the removal of some colours difficult.

Myth # 2: Removing tattoos will leave a scar or burn your skin.

FALSE:  The chance of scarring from laser tattoo removal is slim to none.  Thanks to advanced laser technology, wavelengths of light energy safely penetrate through the top layers of skin and specifically target the ink pigment from your tattoo without harming any surrounding skin tissue.  Lasers provide precise treatment and only target the ink from your tattoo.  It is essential to seek treatment from a trained professional to ensure the use of proper protocols.  Following proper after care instructions is also crucial to ensure scarring does not occur.  Many patients experience blistering or scabbing after treatment.  These side effects are completely normal reactions to laser tattoo removal and should be expected for some patients.  As long as patients allow scabs and blisters to heal naturally, they will achieve great results.  Picking or popping blisters and scabs can cause infection and can lead to unwanted scarring – not from the laser tattoo removal itself.

Myth # 3:  Tattoo removal creams work just as good as lasers.

FALSE:  While the simple concept of spreading cream over a tattoo to remove it sounds convenient, unfortunately, this is not the case.  No tattoo removal cream is as effective as lasers – it’s just not possible.  Tattoo ink resides deep within the skin’s dermis layer.  Unlike lasers, creams cannot and do not penetrate the skin deep enough to reach the ink of a tattoo.  Tattoo removal creams use bleach or peel away the top layer of the skin to create a fading effect, but will never altogether remove a tattoo.  These creams can cause unwanted scarring and burning.

Myth # 4: All tattoos are easy to remove

FALSE:  Tattoos are like snowflakes; they’re all designed differently and have various factors that make it unique, including the person wearing the tattoo.  Some tattoos require more sessions due to the complexity of their design and the colours used.

Laser tattoo removal is the best way to fully remove your tattoo or simply fade it so your tattoo artist can re-design.
