Methods to Remove a Permanent Tattoo

DERMABRASION

Dermabrasion method involves removing the permanent tattoo by scrubbing it off using a coarse surface. The top layers of skin is sloughing away to remove the pigment and skin affected and encourage new skin to grow. It can be done with sandpaper, caustic acids or salt, this is sometimes called salabrasion, or a rapidly rotating brush. This process must be performed by experts and might require multiple sittings for the tattoo to disappear completely. Local anesthetic is generally applied before the skin is abraded, and it may take several days to heal and feel better. It is not recommended for tattoos on faces, tattoos that may have ink injected into the subcutaneous fat (which occurs with tattoos given by non-professionals), or older tattoos as their pigments may have migrated deeper into the skin and are often harder to rub off.

EXCISION

Skin excision refers to the surgical removal of the tattooed skin. Surgical tattoo removal is a quick and effective procedure which removes tattoos through excision or skin graft. Not all sizes of tattoo are suitable for laser tattoo removal, so surgical tattoo removal can be a great alternative.  When we talk about sessions then the average tattoo will only require one session and if you have a very large tattoo you may require two. Surgical removal, also called excision tattoo removal, involves cutting off tattooed skin and stitching remaining skin back together. Scarring will fade over time. Excision can be an ok method for small tattoos, but is somewhat difficult or impossible for larger areas. Skin grafts can also be performed with skin excision.

LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

Laser tattoo removal is the most common way for removing permanent tattoo. Yes it is expensive and painful.  Their main motive is to removal of ink not to harm the skin or skin layer. In this process the ink’s pigment colors are broken up by exposing it to a high-intensity light beam. Black ink are easily removed. Multicolored tattoos might need treatment with various lasers and different wavelengths.

There are two methods available through which tattoos can be removes.

Passive laser tattoo- This method is mostly done in salons. This is relatively cheap.

Active laser tattoo- this is done by dermatologist. As this is done by professionals therefore it is expensive. It is a more effective way of removing the ink

After the procedure, you might notice swelling and possibly blistering or bleeding. Antibacterial ointment can help promote healing. You'll likely need repeated sessions to lighten the tattoo, and it might not be possible to completely erase the tattoo.
