5 Promising Laser Tattoo Removal Results After First Treatment

Laser tattoo removal takes time. It’s a hard truth, especially if you’re stuck with a tattoo on your body that you hate and you’re ready to get rid of it…yesterday. Removing tattoos is potentially very painful (unless the clinic you are at uses lidocaine) and most tattoos take 3-6 sessions for a complete removal, but some promising laser tattoo removal results can be seen after the first treatment. If you’re just looking for your tattoo to be lightened enough for a cover-up, then, depending on the depth, age and color of your tattoo, you may be happy with the laser tattoo removal results after your first treatment.

At The Untattoo Parlor, we specialize in laser tattoo removal, using advanced Picosecond laser technology for the fastest and most effective laser removal possible. This laser technology fades tattoos quickly for some of the best laser tattoo removal results after first treatment.

Can Permanent Makeup Be Removed?

Every few years there seems to be a resurgence of permanent makeup tattoos. While it seems like a great idea on the surface (who doesn’t want to look their best all the time), permanent makeup comes with a very real commitment and some very serious consequences for those with a change of heart. Like other tattoos, cosmetic tattoos are a permanent body modification. Ink inserted under the skin can only be removed through a few methods and not all of them are great options, especially when it comes to the delicate skin on your lips, eyes, eyebrows and face. Many of the options available for tattoo removal simply aren’t suitable for permanent makeup removal, and, as a result, many people opt to get cover-up tattoos, which can result in even further issues resulting from poor application and fading.

Hate Your Permanent Makeup? There’s Hope!

If you have tattooed eyebrows, permanent lip-liner or any other cosmetic tattoo that you hate, you may be asking the question, “Can permanent makeup be removed?”. The answer is yes. There’s hope to get your beautiful natural face back!

The best method for removing permanent makeup is modern laser tattoo removal technology. Choosing a clinic which specializes in permanent and cosmetic makeup removal is important. While the processes of both tattoo removal and permanent makeup removal are very similar, special care and technology must be used in order to protect the delicate area around your eyes and mouth.

Now that you have hope that, yes, permanent makeup can be removed, you may be eager and very ready to jump right in. Before you do that, there are some questions you should ask before deciding to get a permanent makeup removal procedure:

  • Are you a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or ophthalmologist with laser tattoo removal experience?
  • Do you have a large number of cosmetic tattoo removal procedures in your bank of experience already?
  • Can you connect me to previous patients who have undergone the treatment who would be willing to speak to me?

The Untattoo Parlor has extensive experience working with patients to remove all forms of cosmetic makeup. Dr. Garrett Vangelisti is a board-certified plastic surgeon and specializes in tattoo removal in Portland Oregon.

5 Reasons You May Need To Seek Professional Tattoo Removal Services

If you are one of the 17% of people (according to statisticbrain.com) who have regrets after getting a tattoo, you might be ready to explore professional tattoo removal options.

While there are a few at-home tattoo removal options circulating the web, we highly recommend visiting a parlor for a professional tattoo removal consultation and session. You will not only have a better experience than other options for tattoo removal, but you’ll receive better results at a faster speed.

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should seek professional tattoo removal services:

1. Professional Tattoo Removal is Faster

Because of the way that tattoo pigments are processed by the body, pigment particles must be broken up into pieces small enough for the immune system to engulf and remove through the liver. Where tattoo removal creams and other topical applications might slowly fade the tattoo and surrounding skin, professional tattoo removal lasers get right to the source by breaking the particles up with nanosecond bursts of light. This makes the tattoo fade faster than any topical or cream treatment could ever do.

2. There’s a Reduced Chance of Scarring

Some other tattoo removal methods include dermabrasion, salabrasion and excision, all of which are painful and expensive procedures requiring a fair amount of healing time with a high chance of scarring. Whereas, professional tattoo removal lasers target only tattooed skin, breaking up pigments while leaving the skin around it alone.

3. Get the Safest Treatment From Medical Professionals

When you go to a professional tattoo removal shop, like The UnTattoo Parlor, you get the benefit of a medically trained staff. The process of removing a tattoo, even when using professional tattoo removal lasers, is taxing on the body so it’s important to be in the presence of medical professionals who can take your medical history and provide the best care for your skin before and after treatment.

4. Lasers are More Effective at Eliminating All Colors of Ink

Some pigments are more difficult to remove from the skin than others. Professional tattoo removal lasers run on specific bandwidths of light which target particular colors, and help to break up the green and blue pigments that are notoriously difficult. At The UnTattoo Parlor, we use two lasers specifically chosen to target the broadest range of ink colors.

5. You’ll Receive the Least Painful Treatment

Non-professional tattoo removal options like dermabrasion and excision require removal or partial destruction of the tattooed skin, which can be pretty painful and require a lot of healing time. When getting professional tattoo removal services, some people experience pain, but having a physician on staff allows us to offer local anesthetic to make your experience pain-free!
