How to Remove Tattoos Safely and Effectively: Ever heard of the new Q-Switched technique? Here’s how it’s done.
When you did, you thought it was a good idea. Indeed, the best of your life and you couldn’t wait to show it to the whole world. With the passage of time, however, you have realized that perhaps you could have avoided making that choice. You may come to regret it, but now the damage is done, and getting back is difficult. And you start wondering how to remove the tattoo effectively and possibly painlessly.
There are many reasons why you might regret getting a tattoo. Maybe you did it on impulse without taking into consideration the subject, the size, or the area of the body concerned. Or maybe you realized that your tattooed writing contained errors, including translation from oriental languages or that the final result was not quite as you expected. Worse still: you succumbed to the temptation of having the date of the anniversary, the wedding date, the partner’s name tattooed and the romance is over. And you, in addition to him, also want to erase that indelible mark on the skin.
Removing tattoos isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible either. We know there are useful techniques that don’t erase every mark like a pencil eraser. There may be scars or parts of the tattoo that are difficult to remove. It also takes some time and is not always so pleasant, as happens with dermabrasion, a technique that involves anesthesia and scraping. As well as the possibility of infection. There are also those who recommend the removal of the dermis on which the tattoo rests, but we are still talking about surgical interventions.
Today, however, there is a laser technique that could prove useful for tattoo repentants. Are you ready to find out everything there is to know?
HOW THE Q-SWITCHED TECHNIQUE WORKS
The Q-Switched technique is a laser tattoo removal treatment that works by whitening the design on the skin. Each month we go for a session, for a total of about ten. The laser pulse lasts very little and destroys the cells where there are pigment granules which are then eliminated by the body’s fluids as if they were waste to be forgotten.
No anesthesia is needed, it doesn’t hurt, as it feels very little, leaves no scars, and is also ideal for colored tattoos. After each session, antibiotic ointments must obviously be applied to prevent any infections. You may experience redness and burning: avoid sun exposure and follow your doctor’s instructions. It may take some time before even the last tattoo halo goes away, but you can always try it if you really don’t want to know more about that design on the skin.
What are ephemeral tattoos and why they could be a beauty trend
Q-switching is nothing new, as it was first introduced in 1958 by Gordon Gould and then demonstrated in 1961 and 1962 by R.W. Hellwarth and F.J. McClung. But it is a valid alternative.
