Tattoos once considered permanent can now be removed either completely or partially through the various treatments available. However, getting a tattoo made is easily done whilst getting it removed is far from easy. Not only is it a painstaking task but a much painful procedure as well and in most cases leave visible scars and discolouration. The various methods involved in tattoo removal are surgical excision, salabrasion which involves scrubbing the skin with salt to burn away layers of skin, dermabrasion which involves using acid to remove the top layers of the skin and laser removal which is a more standard and effective procedure that reduces scarring and discolouration to a greater extent while in some cases completely eliminating the tattoo without a trace.
Laser tattoos removal techniques break down the ink in the tattoo to completely eliminate it. Albeit an expensive remedial process, it causes minimal side effects. Black is by far the easiest colour to remove followed by dark blue and red. Colored tattoo designs are far more difficult to treat with some of them requiring selected lasers depending upon the pigment colour. The duration of laser removal therapy can take as little as two to four sitting down to as far as 10 sittings depending upon the size and color of the tattoo.
