Tattoo is a permanent pattern applied to the upper layers of the skin with special dyes. It is safe to remove the tattooed or lost form of the tattoo mechanically and by laser surgery.
Mechanical method of tattoo removal
Tattoos can be removed only in specialized institutions: in the salon of a tattoo, beauty salon or in a medical institution. Get rid of the permanent pattern on the skin is much more difficult, more expensive and painful than to apply it.
The essence of mechanical tattoo removal is that the patient under local anesthesia is removed from the skin with a tattoo. The operation is carried out with a stone with a diamond coating or a special abrasive cutter. The skin is erased layer by layer until the pattern disappears. The consequence of this operation is a significant swelling and a long healing wound. The larger the area of ??the tattoo, the larger will be the injury after its removal.
After removing the tattoo mechanically, you must carefully care for the wound. Injured skin should be kept in sterile conditions until complete healing. Such a wound can heal for several months. If her infection could not be avoided, scars and scars may appear on the site of the tattoo after healing.
Laser Tattoo Removal
The laser method of tattoo removal is recognized as a safer and less painful way of reducing tattoos. The old way to remove permanent drawings from the skin, in fact, was the application of a laser thermal burn. The burnt layer of the epidermis died off, and as the injury healed, along with the crust, the tattoo also descended.
A modern way to remove tattoos with a laser appeared in 2004 year. It is called the method of selective photovoltaics. The entire skin area is exposed to the effect, but only the pigment. Under intense radiation, a part of the pigment granules evaporates, while others break down into small particles, which eventually disappear from the body naturally.
This method of tattoo removal is practically painless, does not cause complications, scars or scars. However, in order to reduce the tattoo in this way, several selective photovoltaic sessions will be required. After each laser treatment, the pattern on the skin will lighten until it completely disappears.
In the case of bright and large tattoos, the removal process can stretch from a few months to a year. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the depth of application and the quality of the ink. Under the influence of selective photovoltaics professional tattoo salons are well destroyed, and drawing, drawn with ink from a ballpoint pen, will be more difficult to remove.
