Which Tattoos Are Easier To Remove? Older Or Newer

Reasons Older Tattoo Removal Is More Manageable

Increased Sunlight Exposure

Continual exposure to sunlight often leads to the fading of many types of ink used for tattoo illustration. In some ways, the sun works much like a laser. The light said apparatuses emit break down ink with greater immediacy. Sunlight performs the same function but over a more gradual duration.

That said, sunlight is not considered the most efficient way of eliminating a tattoo one regrets getting. Sunbathers or those who frequent their local swimming pool during the summer season will likely require the same number of tattoo removal sessions from a professional removal establishment than subjects not engaging in such pastimes.

Spending several summer seasons lying by the pool or on the sand might have some positive impact on the removal process. However, excessive sunlight intake could precipitate other potentially serious health problems.

Normal Bodily Processes

Over time, the body attempts to separate itself from tattoo ink. The skin and immune system views ink as a foreign invader and gradually tries to eliminate said substance almost from the time it is first applied. However, the amount of ink typically administered during tattoo design makes this process long and arduous for the body, which is why tattoos seldom fade completely.

In actuality, effective ink removal is subject to a specific process. The material must be differentiated into tiny pieces that are easier to eliminate. Only a tattoo removal laser operated by a trained professional will carry the ability to execute this task. In fact, these specially-designed lasers can often break ink down into such small factions that the body can eventually eradicate them.

Other Factors That Might Impact Tattoo Removal

In addition to the two preceding issues, other factors might impact the tattoo eradication process. Such concerns include the skin tone of the individual undergoing the process, ink quality, the tattoo’s size, the specific colors employed, if subsequent scarring ensued, if the individual undergoing removal smokes, the strength of the removal recipient’s immune system, where on the individual’s body the tattoo in question sits, in addition to how well the recipient cared for the design.

In Conclusion

The tattoo removal process has progressed in recent years. Advancements in laser technology has made the process for less time-consuming and painstaking than it was as recently as five to 10 years ago. In general, these progressions have resulted in individuals often necessitating up to 75 percent fewer removal sessions than in the past.

That said, persons with newer tattoos should not fret. The professional staff at Vanish Laser Clinic can typically remove all types of Tattoos with less pain and office visits.
