Tattoo Removal Process is Easy or Difficult

Most patients who undergo tattoo removal treatment claim that the entire process is very difficult to handle. It is difficult to remove a tattoo once it is implanted on the skin. Why? There are so many reasons to explain why tattoo removal is not easy and a very difficult task. 

When tattoo ink pigments of different colors are implanted on the skin, there is an uneven color density. The reason is each color has its penetration level and go deeper into the skin depending on different depth levels. Usually, it is seen that black or blue colored tattoos have a lower penetration level and are easier to remove as compared to other colors. Green and yellow ink penetrates deeper than other colors so take more time or is difficult to completely remove the tattoo from the skin. 

All tattoo removal treatments require multiple sessions to remove the tattoo completely. Whatever a patient chooses between laser tattoo removal, dermabrasion, or excision, he or she has to go through multiple sessions. Because with each session, the ink of different penetration levels is removed. 

Under no circumstances, a patient can choose to leave one or another session of the entire tattoo removal procedures. Many people try “home remedies” at first but end up contacting professionals. Trying to remove a tattoo at home is not only dangerous but also increases the chances of side effects like scarring and infection. It is advised not to try any unscientific method or follow home remedies.

Contact your physician and he or she will recommend the number of sessions as per the type of tattoo implanted on the skin.
