How to effectively remove tattoos in the Walnut Creek area

How to effectively remove tattoos

It used to be that a tattoo was “forever.” Thankfully, the dermatological field has come up with a way for patients to address unwanted tattoos on the body with laser treatments. When patients come to the practice of Dr. Christine Lee in Walnut Creek asking how they can remove tattoos from the skin, her team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute may suggest laser tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal is a revolutionary way of addressing the pigmentation of the ink in the skin. It uses laser light pulses to break up the ink and allow it to be naturally absorbed by the body in a safe manner. The treatment must be done in several sessions to provide patients with noticeable results, but they can allow patients to recover their beautiful, natural-looking skin without harming the surrounding skin cells.

Laser tattoo removal needs to be done regularly and in several sessions for optimum results. This is because it is a slow and gradual process. Patients who do not undergo enough treatments will not be able to obtain the results they desire. This is why Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute requires her patients to consult with her and discuss the procedure before they commit to it.

Laser tattoo removal is rather effective, and the number of sessions necessary will depend greatly on the tattoo itself. Factors that may affect how many treatments are needed ma include the color of the inks, the quality of the inks, the length of time the tattoo has been on the body, and the location.
