Six Facts You Might Have Not Known About Laser Tattoo Removal

  1. The laser does not remove the ink. Yup! This surprises most of our clients, your body removes the ink. The laser breaks up the ink into small particles that expedites the process of removal. After treating the tattoo with the laser your body’s immune system takes over to remove the ink.
  2. Your circulation can hinder or help fading. Movement of the lymphatic system is governed by our muscles. The more that you pump your muscles, the better your lymph flow will be. The lymphatic fluid eventually ends up in your blood stream. So, the better the circulation the better the fade. Get to the gym, ride a bike, or go jump on the trampoline with your kids.
  3. Liver Health Helps. The ink particles eventually end up in the liver before it is excreted out through your excretions, urine, and sweat. Drink more water, cut back on the booze, detoxifying supplements have shown to help as well. Milk Thistle is a great liver detoxifier and can be found at most health food stores.
  4. Location of your tattoo. Remember it is all about circulation, so the closer to your heart the better. Tattoos on the extremities especially the foot and ankle can take longer to remove.
  5. Experience of your laser technician. Experience and quality training along with a high quality laser means no scarring and better fading. Ask questions about your technicians background and experience. Do not go with the technician of the week who was hired from a craigslist ad.
  6. FADING WILL OCCUR IN BETWEEN SESSIONS. Wait a couple of months in between sessions, especially with larger tattoos. Your body will continue to eliminate these products over time. Our staff at North Houston Laser Tattoo Removal will recommend a timeframe for you to resume treatments.
