Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2014 -- Tattoo removal comes with some big questions, which is why Boston tattoo removal company Delete Tattoo Removal and Laser Salon compiled some of their most frequently asked tattoo removal questions with answers that will help create a knowledgeable tattoo removal patient.
1. Who Is Performing The Treatment?
At Delete, only board certified medical professionals - physicians and nurses – perform the laser tattoo removal treatments. While regulations that govern the use of laser removal equipment in Massachusetts demand far less, because of the risks associated with poorly performed treatments, Delete recommends that patients always use a trained and certified medical professional with the skill and experience to deliver anesthesia and an aggressive but safe laser treatment. Every tattoo removal is different and the process can be lengthy so it is important that patients are given honest answers, have realistic expectations, and feel a high level of trust. Buyers beware if an office forces patients to buy a pre-paid package.
2. How Many Treatments Will It Take?
Every individual and tattoo is unique: “Skin type, tattoo location, color(s), amount of ink, scarring tendencies, tissue change, layering, and age of your tattoo can all influence how many treatments you will need to completely remove your ink,” Delete states on its website, adding that during the complimentary consultation, “Delete's tattoo analysis will quickly predict the number of treatments needed and the total cost of your removal.” But while each removal will come with a unique set of circumstances, Delete Tattoo Removal Boston patients also have an even quicker alternative to traditional single-session treatments. Delete states on its website that its signature 4-n-1 (R)tattoo removal treatment has been seen to remove tattoos in as little as one or three treatments.
3. What Type Of Laser Is Being Used? Does It Have “Consumables?”
Common Q-switched Nd:YAG tattoo removal lasers produce only two wavelengths (532nm and 1064 nm) and cannot, in spite of the hype, remove all colors. Even with a black tattoo removal this type of laser often leaves a blue shadow. Some tattoo removal practitioners will add a Ruby (694nm) wavelength to address removing colors but this wavelength has a higher incidence of scarring than an Alexandrite (755nm) wavelength. The cheapest, most commonly used tattoo removal lasers have a high “consumable” cost. A “consumable” is a piece of the laser that has a limited number of treatments. The more it is used the weaker the treatments become. Therefore, the effectiveness of a treatment is based on the condition of this piece. It is recommended that you always know the wavelengths, length of duration, spots size used and the age of any aesthetic laser’s consumables. Delete is the only laser salon using AlexELETE(TM) by Candela, state of the art laser pumped laser technology with 532nm, 755nm and 1064nm wavelengths for removing tattoos of any color as safely and efficiently as possible.
4. What Speeds Up The Tattoo Removal Process?
Delete’s tattoo removal specialists advise living a healthy lifestyle with at least eight hours of sleep a night and a balanced diet. They suggest patients don’t smoke, and take their vitamins. The healthier the immune system, the more successful tattoo removal will be. And for those whose lifestyles need a little boost, Delete offers several varieties of vitamin injections and intravenous nutrient infusions to boost the immune system and help clear the ink faster.
5. Is it Possible To Avoid Pain During The Tattoo Removal Treatment?
Delete prides itself on its ability to provide a virtually pain free process. They offer a variety of numbing options, including topical and local anesthetics. Delete also utilizes Zimmer cooling equipment to cool the skin before, during, and immediately following treatment.
6. How Long Does It Take To See Results?
On average it takes six weeks for the results of a single treatment to become visible, which is the amount of time the body needs to flush out the ink broken up by the laser treatment.
7. What Are The Risks? Will There Be Scars?
Laser tattoo removal is considered the safest and most effective option for tattoo removal. But outdated technology and the inexperience of laser operators can increase the likelihood of scarring and other risks. At Delete, excess heat associated with other laser tattoo removal options is eliminated with its AlexELETE laser to protect skin from scarring, which occurs in less than five percent of cases.
