Tattoos that become unwanted or unsightly can be removed through a series of options, including laser removal and intense puled light therapy. Tattoos can also be removed either fully or partially, depending on your need.
What are the symptoms?
Though not considered traditional symptoms, there are many reasons individuals seek to remove their tattoos. Often these fall under the categories of tattoos that have lost color, lost meaning or are placed in areas that could impact a career.
Who gets it?
Anyone seeking to partially or fully remove a tattoo.
There are several options for removing your tattoos, including laser removal and intense pulsed light therapy. Laser removal targets the ink with highly concentrated light that breaks the ink into tiny fragments that are then cleared by the patient’s immune system. Intense pulsed light therapy features a gel applied to the area, followed by a wand that emits pulses of light onto the skin. If you are interested in tattoo removal, the skin experts at Forefront Dermatology can develop a treatment plan that is safe, effective and personalized for your health needs and the condition of your skin.
