October is the month of thrills and chills. Since this is the season for all things spooky, it’s the perfect time to highlight the risks associated with laser tattoo removal.
But first, here’s something to keep in mind. If you regret getting a tattoo, don’t try to remove it on your own. The tattoo might not mean anything to you anymore, but keeping your skin healthy should mean something – to you at least.
Take time to find a reputable laser clinic with a good reputation. You’ll have to do a bit of research, but it’s worth the time. Here are some reasons why you want to find the best laser clinic possible.
Prioritize Your Skin Over Fast Tattoo Removal
So, you’re tired of that tattoo and want it gone as soon as possible. But have you thought about all the potential dangers of tattoo removal? Go over to Google and do a quick search for “botched tattoo removal.” You’ll see how horrible things can get.
We’re a team with more than 4 years of experience providing professional laser tattoo removal. And in all those years, we’ve seen some outrageous things. Some people will take drastic measures to erase their ink.
Tattoo removal shortcuts are a bad idea. People take desperate steps to remove tattoos they regret. But in spite of the do-it-yourself horror stories, going to a bad laser clinic is almost just as bad.
Finding a good laser clinic is important. Choosing the wrong laser clinic could result in a botched tattoo removal job. A clinic that uses the wrong laser or that has an inexperienced staff can ruin your skin. You’ll end up with bad results, damaged skin, and wasted money.
Some Laser Clinics Are Better Than Others
Unless you understand how lasers work, you might think that all laser clinics are the same. All they need is a laser and training with how to use it, right? Wrong. Not all lasers are the same.
A clinic needs the correct laser for tattoo removal. The laser also has to work with specific types of skin. And the clinic must have someone trained in how to correctly use the laser. This is the difference between a successful tattoo removal and a botched mess of a job.
Things that can go wrong with laser tattoo removal include:
- Scarring caused by using the wrong laser for the job.
- Damage caused by a technician with inadequate training.
- Photoallergic response to the laser, resulting in a skin condition such as dermatitis.
- Bacterial infections caused by an unclean clinic or improper care following the procedure.
