February is a great month to reevaluate the things in our life that we love…and those we don’t love. You probably really loved that tattoo when you got it. It probably really expressed who you were and what you were feeling…at the time. Yet here you are, months, years, or even decades later wishing you could have a do-over of the day you got inked.
Life is Different Today
Times change, people change, priorities change. At one time your tattoo may have meant something to you, but now it just doesn’t seem that big a deal.
Often when people have children, they decide their tattoo may not be sending the right message to their young ones. Or maybe as you’ve tried to move up the corporate ladder, you’ve discovered that your tattoo(s) are holding you back from achieving your goals and dreams. Or perhaps you just plain don’t like your tattoo anymore.
Everyone has reasons why they come to regret the tattoo they once loved. It could even be that you’re just tired of looking at the same old design and want to have it removed so you can put a new one in its place.
Nothing Has to Be Permanent, Not Even a Tattoo
Back when you got your tattoo, everyone from your mother to the tattoo artist probably warned you that it was forever. The exciting thing is that is no longer true. Many tattoo removal options exist today, and the PicoSure® laser like we use at Dermatology Associates is the most revolutionary technology to come along in 20 years. Older technologies may eventually get the job done, but can take several times the number of sessions as Picosure, and the process can be painful to endure – to mention expensive.
The PicoSure laser breaks up tattoo ink with ultra-short bursts of light that travel at one-trillionth of a second! (In case you are wondering, that’s one millionth of one million.) Once the pulse hits the tattoo ink, it shatters it into particles the size of a piece of dust. Your body absorbs the ink and eliminates it naturally.
With each new session, your unwanted tattoo fades until it becomes nothing but a distant memory.
