    - Tattoo Removal
    ________________________________________
    It is estimated that close to 10% of the U.S. population has some form of tattoo. Eventually, as many as 50% of them want to have them removed.
    There is good news for those who have an unwanted body design. New laser removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects.
    Here's how it works: the laser breaks up the colored pigment of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color. Fountain of Youth has the Enlighten Tattoo Removal machine and it will remove all color pigments. Some colors require more treatments than others.
    Who Can Benefit From Laser Tattoo Removal?
    Each tattoo is unique so the removal process must be tailored to suit each individual case. Patients with previously treated tattoos may also be candidates for laser therapy. Tattoos that have not been effectively removed by other treatments or through home remedies may respond well to laser therapy providing that prior treatments did not result in excessive scarring.

    What Can I Expect During Laser Tattoo Removal?
    Depending on the size and color of the tattoo, the number of treatments will vary. The tattoo may be removed in as little as two to four visits. When a consultation is scheduled a trained professional will evaluate your personal situation and advise you on the process.
    The color of the patient's skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends will affect the removal technique. Treatment with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size, and type of tattoo (amateur or professional).
    The following is typical of an office visit for laser tattoo removal:
    • Protective eye shields are placed on the patient.
    • The skin's reaction to the laser is tested to determine the most effective energy for treatment.
    • The treatment itself consists of a handheld device placed against the surface of the skin and activating the laser light. As many patients describe it, each pulse feels like a grease splatter or the snapping of a rubber band against the skin.
    • Smaller tattoos require fewer pulses while the larger tattoos. In either case, the tattoo requires several treatments and multiple visits. At each treatment, the tattoo should become progressively lighter.
    • Immediately following treatment, an ice pack is applied to soothe the treated area. The patient will then be asked to apply a topical antibiotic cream or ointment. A bandage or patch will be used to protect the site and it should likewise be covered with a sun block when out in the sun.
    Most patients do not require any anesthesia. However, depending on the location of the tattoo and the pain threshold for the patient, the physician may elect to use some form of anesthesia (topical anesthesia cream or painkiller injections at the site of the procedure).
    What Are the Possible Side Effects of Laser Tattoo Removal?
    There are minimal side effects to laser tattoo removal. However, you should consider these factors in your decision:
    • Risk of infection at the removal site.
    • Possible scaring.
    • Lack of complete pigment removal.
    • Hypopigmentation, where the treated skin is paler than surrounding skin.
    • Hyperpigmentation, where the treated skin is darker than surrounding skin.
    • Cosmetic tattoos like lip liner, eyeliner, and eyebrows may darken following treatment with tattoo removal lasers. Further treatment of the darkened tattoos usually results in fading.
    Is Laser Tattoo Removal Safe?
    Thanks to new technology, laser tattoo removal has become much more effective with very little risk of scarring. Laser treatment is often safer than many traditional methods such as excision, dermabrasion or Sal abrasion (using moist gauze pads saturated with a salt solution to abrade the tattooed area) because of its unique ability to selectively treat pigment involved in the tattoo.
    In many cases, certain colors may be more effectively removed than others. It is known that blue/black tattoos respond particularly well to laser treatment.
