What Is Tattoo Removal and Why Get It At New Medical Spa?

Tattoos are incredibly popular, but that doesn’t mean everyone who gets one winds up loving every aspect of their design. Whether you want to remove your tattoo entirely or simply want to tone down the color or change its shape, laser tattoo removal is a safe, effective option that’s well worth considering. The result is smooth, even skin free from unwanted tattoos.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Before you decide to undergo laser tattoo removal, it’s important to know how it works. Laser tattoo removal is one of the safest and most effective methods for eliminating unwanted ink. This can work for many different types of tattoos, including those that are large or small, colored, or black and white.

At New Medical Spa in Short Pump, VA., our Spectrum dual-wavelength laser works by breaking down the tattoo’s pigment particles. The process takes 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size, shape, and color of the tattoo. Over the six to eight weeks that follow, the particles gradually melt away as the body absorbs them and flushes them out through its own natural elimination processes. 

Depending on the amount of pigment in the tattoo, a series of laser treatments may be required to remove the tattoo entirely. However, the procedure is safe, comfortable, and noninvasive — and results are permanent, so your tattoo will be completely gone.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal?

There are a variety of reasons why you might want to consider getting your tattoo removed. Here are some of the most common:

  • You no longer want to hide your ink. Perhaps you got your first tattoo when you were young and not thinking clearly about how permanent it would be. Now that you’re older, it just doesn’t fit with your new lifestyle anymore.
  • You’ve changed your mind about your tattoo. Maybe your current tattoo no longer feels like the right fit and you want to change things up.
  • You’re getting a new job where tattoos are not permitted. Many employers have strict rules about what kind of body art their employees can have visible in the workplace. If you’ve recently gotten a new job and are worried about having to cover up your tattoos every day, removing them may be just what you need.

Whatever your reason for wanting laser tattoo removal, New Medical Spa is here to help our Short Pump community. We have treated many patients with tattoos that they no longer want or need.
