At Mirabella Med Spa, we’ve been providing Kalamazoo tattoo removal services for years. We understand the dilemma that our clients are facing… they want to get rid of that outdated (or irrelevant) tattoo but they’re concerned about the chances of the treatment not working, possible side effects or complications. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad advice and misconceptions floating around in regards to tattoo removal that feeds into these concerns. Today, we’d like to spend a few minutes discussing some helpful facts about tattoo removal that will aid you in making an informed decision.
- Black is the easiest color to remove
One of the biggest misconceptions is the idea that black ink is more difficult to remove than other colors. In fact, the opposite is true as black pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths.
- Location matters
The location of your tattoo can affect the results that you are able to achieve with tattoo removal. The closer your tattoo is to your heart, the easier it is to remove due to those areas having better circulation.
- Amateur tattoos are easier than professional ones
Amateur tattoos are often applied unevenly, with less depth of penetration than their professional counterparts. The good news here is that because of this, regrettably bad tattoo jobs are, generally, easier to remove than professional tattoos.
- Treatment typically occurs in stages
Tattoos aren’t removed overnight. The best way to ensure a thorough, effective tattoo removal is to take it slowly. Typically, this means 6 to 10 treatments with a 4 to 6 week break in between each.
- You should always ask questions
