Do you have regrets about one or more tattoos on your body? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of people feel the same way. As time passes, our society changes, and so does every person. Body art that was appealing a decade ago now seems out of place. Fortunately, new laser technology has made tattoo removal more convenient than ever.
At MacMed Salon, Spa and Medical – with locations in Milford, Framingham and Hopedale – we offer laser tattoo removal, so you can get your skin back. To schedule your consultation, contact MacMed today, and we’ll help you find the perfect treatment options for your skin.
Safety and Comfort
Old-fashioned tattoo removal methods were risky and could create huge scars. In most situations, modern laser equipment can disperse tattoo ink without major side effects or significant pain. Protective glasses are used to prevent laser beams from hitting your eyes. As with many medical services, the process is often more comfortable if you use a skilled provider with some experience.
If you decide to have a tattoo removed, you will probably only need to use skin cream or ice packs to reduce pain after the procedure. Anesthesia usually isn’t necessary during removal. However, it may be applied if your unwanted body art is in a particularly sensitive area. Friends may caution you that tattoo removals are very painful, but these warnings are largely based on the effects of old-fashioned treatments that happened in the past.
Effectiveness and Speed
Another benefit of laser removals is that they are more effective than other techniques. They can fully or mostly eliminate the vast majority of body art. Although it’s the darkest color, black is actually easier to remove than other inks. The treatments can be customized to suit the specific measurements, colors and the age of your tattoo.
Compared to other removal methods, lasers take less time to erase body art. Some kinds of tattoos can disappear in as little as two sessions. The length of each session has also decreased. This makes it easier for you to banish unwanted ink without missing work or classes. It allows physicians to reduce appointment waiting times as well.
New Possibilities in Life
After your old tattoos are removed, you may find that many new opportunities materialize. Hiring managers and military recruiters could be more likely to offer employment if you don’t have obvious body art. It may also make you more appealing to potential boyfriends or girlfriends. Polls show that many people still consider tattoo-free partners to be more attractive.
Furthermore, this service can help you move on and forget about past mistakes. Symbols of abandoned interests and failed relationships make it difficult to have an optimistic attitude toward life. Few people wear identical clothing or listen to the same music throughout their lives. Body art is no different; it’s important for everyone to have the freedom to change and start anew.
Laser tattoo removal technology has made these benefits far more accessible than they were in the past. You can easily schedule treatments that are affordable, safe, effective and convenient. As demand continues to increase, more and more physicians have begun to offer this service in various parts of the nation. For millions of people, the ability to reverse body art mistakes is now within reach.
