The Biggest Worries of Laser Tattoo Removal
Posted on : February 2, 2016 By : Wellness
There are lots of people sat at home who are considering laser tattoo removal but are too worried to actually go through with the enquiry. Due to a lot of misconceptions and myths that exist about the process, it’s not surprising that the subject makes many apprehensive.
If you currently have a tattoo that you regret getting and definitely don’t want on your body anymore, but you’re too worried to seek out laser tattoo removal, you’re definitely not alone.
Here are some of the biggest worries that people have about laser tattoo removal.
It’s Too Painful
The number one fear of people looking into laser tattoo removal is that it’s going to be really painful. Whilst the amount the treatment hurts will depend on your specific requirements and your own personal pain scale, we can assure you that it doesn’t hurt as nearly as much as you think it does. A lot of people compare the pain to having a tattoo in the first place but one session doesn’t last nearly as long (depending on the area being treated).
It’ll Leave a Nasty Scar
Surely laser tattoo removal will leave behind a nasty scar right? This isn’t something that you need to be too worried about. With laser technology constant evolving, it’s been designed to just target the specific tattoo – leaving the skin around the tattoo untouched as much as possible. If you look after your skin correctly afterwards, there should be no reason for why you would be left with a huge scar.
It’s Too Expensive
Okay, laser tattoo removal isn’t cheap – this is true. However, just ask yourself, how much have you spent on tattoos over the years? How much have you spent on tattoos that you no longer want? We think it’s a small price to pay for removing something that you’re definitely not happy with – can you put a price on being comfortable in yourself again?
It’s not actually as expensive as you may think. The amount of money that you spend on laser tattoo removal will depend on a number of factors, including the size and colour of the tattoo. It’s worth going for a consultation so that you have a better idea of time and price.
