TATTOO REMOVAL TREATMENT
Tattoo removal methods are dime a dozen – but most of them are so painful and ineffective that laser removal replaced them as soon as it became available. These other methods include dermabrasion, which would actually “sand” away the top layer of skin through abrasive friction. Another method is excision, where the tattoo would be cut away and the skin sewn back together. These were all old techniques and thankfully technology had advanced to make life much more easier and happier.
The new-age laser techniques are a ‘class-apart’ in erasing them with little risk of scarring.
The ND-YAG laser from Alma Inc, Israel, used at Oliva emits an intense beam of light to remove the tattoo without harming the healthy skin cells in the vicinity. The laser light breaks the tattoo ink particles into tiny fragments which are then washed out through the body’s natural cleansing mechanism. This causes the tattoo fadeout or removal. The whole cleansing process generally takes several weeks.
Oliva’s laser procedure is done both for:
- Professional tattoos
- Home-made tattoos
