Some tattoos might seem like a good idea at the time…
Tattooed skin is an ancient art form dating back as far as the Stone Age. In the years past, tattoos were considered to be permanent and you were stuck with them for the rest of your life. Thankfully, for the nearly 20% of people experiencing tattoo regret, laser tattoo removal technology has been developed to break down the ink particles and help get rid of unwanted and bad tattoos.
Tattooed Skin Types
There are basically two types of tattoos applied to the skin today: professional or amateur. Professional tattoos generally contain more ink which is deeply placed in the skin. They may contain a variety of metallic pigments such as cadmium, mercury, and cobalt which may be particularly difficult to remove, requiring several treatment sessions. Amateur tattoos usually contain carbon-based India ink that responds better removal.
Currently Delta Laser provides the removal of tattoos for black and dark blue inks only, which offers the least risk of scarring. Many patients will have their dark inks treated with us, and then we’ll refer them to another laser clinic for any additional colours in their tattoo.
