Many people get tattoos in their teenage and it is often something that they feel they have outgrown and do not need anymore. Tattoos have long been renowned for their permanence- however this permanence is a double-edged sword in that you may no longer feel positively towards the tattoo. In such a case, you would just want it to go.
The top causes for wanting to have a tattoo removed are that you may feel embarrassed because of the tattoo, you are hindered to wear certain clothes, and it signifies a life experience that you no longer want to associate with, your new job or significant life events.
Luckily, laser tattoo removal is available for you to start over your life. The number of treatments that you require would vary depending on the size and color of your tattoo. It may take two to four visits if it is of small to normal size.
It would normally take you two to four days if the tattoo is of a normal size. This is what you can expect during the treatment.
Normally anesthetics are not required for this procedure. However, if you feel that, you have a low threshold for pain or if the tattoo is positioned at a strategic location, you can choose to take a topical anesthesia cream or pain killer injections.
