Safe tattoo removal relies on two main methods – Reading Eagle

One of the biggest criticisms a person receives after getting a tattoo is that the ink is permanent. In January 2012, Harris Interactive conducted a poll which showed that 1 in 7 Americans who have a tattoo regret getting it.

Tattoo removal is not new. Before lasers were used, there were chemical peels; however, there was always a potential for complications, according to

Laser tattoo removal is the standard of care, according to

The process uses a specific type of laser to break up the pigment. After the treatments are complete, there is a risk for infection at that site and there is a slight possibility of a scar developing or discoloration of the skin.

According to WebMD, the number of treatments needed depends on the age, size and color of the tattoo. The average cost ranges from $200 to $500 per treatment. Most insurance companies will not cover the cost unless the tattoo is being removed due to a medical issue, according to published reports.

Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons often offer tattoo removal.

At GO! Tattoo Removal in Allentown, a technician aims the laser at the pigment below the skin’s surface to break it up, then the body’s immunune system absorbs the pigment, according to

The process takes some time.

As for pain, “There will be some mild discomfort that is often associated with a hot rubber band being snapped on the skin,” according to

This laser removal costs $200 per treatment, and an average of 10 to 12 treatments are required to get the desired effect, according to the website.

Several factors, such as age, location and quality of the tattoo determines the success of the process, according to

Every person is different, the site emphasizes.

In Pottstown, there’s Ex-Ink Studios, which promotes a laser-free removal technique called Tattoo Vanish Method.

Tattoo Vanish requires a topical anesthetic and uses the body’s own external scab to remove the unwanted ink, according to

Over-the-counter creams that claim to fade tattoos are a bad idea. They don’t work and can damage the skin, according to the FDA.
