Tattoos have been around since the Egyptian time and while in many cultures they are revered in the American culture they seem to be losing clout. Many organizations are banning tattoos that “show” for employees which is especially cumbersome in Florida when wearing a long sleeve shirt in 100 degree weather is not always fun. Almost all federal employers such as police departments, prisons, fire departments, government facilities, and the military have banned employees & those enlisting into the military including army, navy, marines, & airforce from having tattoos on any area of the body that show in uniform. This means anyone with a tattoo on their face, wrist, fingers, ankles, neck, or behind their ear has to remove them with laser tattoo removal in order to be hired, keep their job, or enlist in the military. These are just a few of the reasons that laser tattoo removal has become mainstream and continues to grow in popularity. Some of the other reasons men and women want tattoos removed can be age; for example: that cool “unicorn” tattoo on your ankle you got when you were 18 isn’t as cool when you are 35 with 2 kids in a PTA meeting, or of course the old I’ll be with “so & so” forever so you inked their name on your wrist or got a “wedding band” tattooed on your finger but of course “so & so” is out of the picture now but the reminder remains.
Laser Tattoo Removal is a like a “start over” button for your life. It can give you that amazing job opportunity or promotion that you have been wanting without being held back by a simple “tattoo mistake.” It can help you erase a memory of a bad relationship, drunken spring break tattoo, or help you get rid of a regrettable tattoo before your kids notice it and want one. Basically laser tattoo removal is an awesome way to start over for the new year.
Here are some basics on how tattoo removal works. We used the laser we use in our Orlando Medical Spa Winter Park laser & Anti-Aging Center. The NaturalLase QS is the highest energy q-switched yag system in the world. Take advantage of four Q-switched wavelengths in one system (1064, 532, 585 and 650 nm). Tattoo ink is removed by using specific wavelengths of light which pass into the skin, and is absorbed by the ink. A given wavelength targets only a single color (or a group of nearby colors). For example, the red wavelength removes the green ink and the green wavelength removes the red ink. The rapid absorption of the light energy (shock wave) causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems often referred to as the body’s lymphatic drainage system. Complete Numbing of the treatment area using Lidocaine injections is an available option for a painless procedure.
So use tattoo removal as your “start over” button. For more information on laser tattoo removal in Orlando go to www.winterparklaser.com
