Is X-Tattoo Removal Right for You?
Yes! More then likely. Every tattoo is different, removal techniques—including the type of laser used—must be tailored to your particular needs. And some tattoos are especially stubborn. Green, yellow and fluorescent inks are notoriously difficult to remove. Their absorption spectra often fall outside most lasers’ targeted color spectrums. What’s more, tattoo inks sometimes contain chemicals like iron oxide or titanium dioxide, which makes it even more difficult for laser beams to “explode” color pigments.
You would be a good candidate for tattoo removal (meaning you won’t suffer scarring) if you have medium to fair skin and a tattoo that contains dark (but not dense) ink and a superficial ink depth. Medium or fair-skinned people react well because the laser can selectively target ink. If your tattoo happens to be on your arms, chest, buttocks, or anywhere else with good circulation, even better. Areas with poor circulation are more work to treat.
If you have darker skin, don’t worry.Tattoo removal is still possible on people with darker skin tones, but your physician must use lasers with specific wavelengths to minimize potential problems.
