Whether it’s a poor teenage decision or a now broken heart, there are many reasons people choose to remove their tattoos. A tattoo was once a permanent part of you when it was inked into your skin, but with a few recent advances in technology, your tattoo can go from a permanent part of your future to a disappearing part of your past.
At Fox Vein & Laser Experts we offer the best tattoo removal and the best laser treatments in South Florida. In the past, tattoo removal consisted of different, and in many cases, painful ways to remove the top layer of skin. Procedures like dermabrasion, acid treatments and skin grafting provided results but also took a lot of painful time.
Now, as lasers continue to be perfected to treat a variety of skin issues, tattoo removal has become a little less painful and a lot easier. Here’s how we’re removing tattoos in Miami at Fox Vein & Laser Experts.
Dr. Fox and her expert staff have one of the best lasers on the market for tattoo removal – the PicoWay laser. It is very effective because it releases a high amount of energy in short bursts that shatters ink particles into tiny pieces that your skin can then absorb. It is even successful in targeting the toughest ink colors like blue and green, and can also help all different skin types and colors. Due to the short but strong bursts, the laser allows us to really focus on the pigment and that means fewer treatments for our patients with much faster results.
A laser on your skin may seem painful but in reality, it’s more uncomfortable than anything else. However, for those who don’t want to feel anything, there have been advances in numbing options such as creams or cryogenic devices that numb the skin with cold air before the laser treatment is performed. By using cold air to numb the area that will be treated, this option not only improves your comfort but also reduces swelling and minimizes irritation of the skin.
We live in a world ruled by technology so it makes sense that lasers and tattoo removal options continue to evolve from year to year. There are even products now being tested where lasers won’t be necessary. One product is a drug that can manipulate individual atoms and when applied to the skin will bring the tattoo to the surface so it can just be wiped away.
