A poll that was taken in 2016 shows that at least 25 percent of individuals who got a tattoo when they were between the ages of 18 and 35 now regret it. So, that means there are millions of people in the United States right now who have a tattoo that they wish they never got.
The primary reason why people regret getting their tattoo is that they got it without thinking about it. Many say that they were young and did not put much thought into the decision. Some of the reasons why people got a tattoo that they later regretted include:
- Peer pressure
- To signify being in a relationship
- To identify themselves with a gang or group
- The search for self-identity
A few decades ago, if you got a tattoo, there was no going back. It was permanent. Now, thanks to advances in technology, there are options that allow people to quickly and safely remove tattoos. The PicoWay® laser is one of the tattoo removal technologies that offers the most promise.
This is a laser technology that delivers pulses of energy to the skin every trillionth of a second. For this reason, this laser can treat all types of skin. The results that it produces are nothing short of amazing.
The PicoWay® laser is a gamechanger in the world of tattoo removal. The primary benefits of using the PicoWay® laser include:
- A higher rate of successful tattoo removal
- Tattoo removal in fewer sessions
- Improved comfort during the removal process
- Minimized risk of side effects due to short pulse duration
Traditional laser tattoo removal is limited by the following things:
- It cannot treat all tattoo colors and types
- It cannot break up the particles effectively
- Treatments are highly uncomfortable
- Risk of skin discoloration, especially with darker skin tones
PicoWay® can effectively treat tattoos, even tattoos that are multicolored. The laser can treat tattoos on various skin types. It delivers energy directly to the target ink.
The PicoWay® laser has been cleared by the FDA for tattoo removal. Since it has the ability to shatter even the smallest ink particles, it is a lot easier for the body to absorb and remove the tattoo ink.
Throughout the entire process, only a minimal amount of heat actually gets transferred into the skin. So, you do not have to worry as much about scarring, discoloration or other permanent skin injuries.
Tattoo regret is more common than most people think. Thanks to the PicoWay® laser, steps can be taken to remove an unwanted tattoo, making it look as if it never existed.
