Tattoo Removal Treatment

Tattoo ink is generally permanent. Tattoo removal is tiresome and expensive as the tattoo ink is deposited beneath the skin’s top layer.

In previous days few below mentioned traditional methods are used to remove unwanted tattoo which are extremely painful and can cause severe scarring and other side effects. 

Salabrasion

It is done by the abrasion of the epidermis and dermis (skin outer layers) with a salt-based solution. This is a very painful method that can and cause visible damage to the skin. This is the oldest method of tattoo removal, still in use today

Dermabrasion

It is a mechanical method for the abrasion of the skin outer layers and also a very painful method that can and cause visible long term damage to the skin.

Skin excision

This is the surgical removal of the tattooed skin with primary closure or skin grafting; leaves a scar depending upon size removed.

Cryosurgery

The tattooed area is frozen using liquid nitrogen and then sanded through dermabrasion to remove top layers of skin and leave behind a scar.

Chemical destruction

With caustic phenol to remove the superficial layer of skin.

Subcutaneous Injections of Solutions

Involves injecting liquid solutions such as glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid under the skin; leave long-term scars or burn-like marks.

Tattoo Removal Creams

It is extremely difficult to remove ink with a cream regardless of type, as they may lightly fade inks located in the very superficial layers of skin and off no use.

Home Remedies

Though not proven to be effective, if you wish to go natural, you can try using lemon and honey, apricot scrubs, salt scrubs, chemical peels, etc to remove tattoos, and then it is unlikely to respond.

These methods have their own limitations, side effects and may leave a scar (hypertrophic or keloid) that is more difficult to treat than the tattoo itself.

Modern technique to remove tattoo involves laser tattoo removal

Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser treatment is often safer than many other tattoo removal methods, as laser tattoo removal treatment selectively treats the pigment in the tattoo with very minimal side effects. Especially Nd: YAG Laser is the tool of choice for most tattoo removal practitioners.

Q-switch Nd:YAG lasers are considered as gold standard laser technology for tattoo removal

Types of Q-Switch lasers

Passive Laser Treatment

This is most commonly used in parlors and beauty salons. Though cheaper, these passive lasers can only partially remove the tattoo, and cannot guarantee complete removal.

Active Laser Treatment

This is expensive, but the most effective and efficient way of completely removing tattoos of almost every color. The active Q-switched laser is the gold standard laser in removing tattoos, they are of three types:

Q-switch Nd: YAG (1064&532),

Q-switch Ruby (694),

Q-switch Alexandrite (755)

Among these laser Q-switched Nd: YAG laser is the most commonly used lasers in the world; producing a very short laser pulse in the nanosecond or the recent picoseconds lasers.Nanosecond lasers works on the principle called selective photothermolysis and the newer picosecond lasers remove tattoos by photomachanical effect. Fractional Q-Switch Nd:YAG is most advancement in laser tattoo removal.

Factors responsible for Laser Tattoo Removal
