Debunking Myths About Tattoo Removal

Myths about Tattoo Removal in St. Louis

Laser tattoo removal is a complicated but effective treatment method that allows you to rid yourself of unwanted tattoos. If you're thinking of getting laser tattoo removal at a medical spa near you, read these facts about laser tattoo removal to learn more about the process.

Myth: Laser Tattoo Removal Leaves a Scar
It is unlikely that you'll become scarred from laser tattoo removal. The lasers that are used in tattoo removal penetrate the top layer of skin, specifically targeting the second layer to remove only tattoo ink. There are other methods of tattoo removal that can cause scarring, such as Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL). IPL does not target the ink in your second layer of skin, and can be dangerous and cause scars.

Myth: Tattoo Removal isn't Safe
The lasers that are used in laser tattoo removal are regulated by the FDA, and are very safe. You should be careful about the tattoo removal provider that you choose. Your tattoos can be removed at a medical spa or tattoo removal clinic that uses a licensed laser technician to operate the laser. Check the qualifications and experience of the laser technician and the clinic or medical spa, to ensure that they operate safely and within the law. Read online reviews and check their BBB ratings.

Myth: Black Ink is the Hardest to Remove
Black ink is actually the easiest ink to remove. The black ink that is used in tattoos contains few ingredients compared to colored ink, which makes it much easier for the laser to break down. It is difficult for lasers to break down the additives that are in many tattoo inks, and each tattoo parlor may use different additives in their inks.
