Tattoo Removal: How it Works, Methods, Results
Traditional tattoos involve injecting ink deep into the skin (dermis). The immune system’s inability to fully remove these ink particles results in the permanence of a tattoo. After advancements in cosmetic makeup, new methods of cosmetic tattoos have been developed, including permanent makeup, which somehow replaced traditional tattoo
Tattoo Removal Methods
Among all the techniques used for eyebrow tattoo removal, laser technology is considered a reliable and effective technique; not only for eyebrow tattoo but for other tattoos too.
Eyebrow Laser Tattoo Removal
During the laser tattoo removal procedure, a qualified laser therapist or practitioner directs a concentrated beam of light (laser) to the target area. The laser targets the ink particles in the skin, breaking them down into smaller particles that are eventually removed by the body’s immune system. It requires multiple sessions and can cause some discomfort, akin to a rubber band being snapped against your skin. The area may also be temporarily red, swollen, or blistered afterward.
Though a little less expensive than laser technology, the dermabrasion method involves moving a motorized device (a brush or wheel) that removes the upper and middle layer of the skin. Once the upper layer of the eyebrow is removed, the tattoo becomes less noticeable than before. This method is painful and has a longer recovery time, with a higher risk of scarring and infection compared to laser therapy.
During surgical excision, the surgeon removes the tattooed skin from the eyebrow and then sutures the incision closed. However, there is a possibility that a scar will remain, which may require further treatment.
Surgical excision may not be a first choice for removing a tattoo from the eyebrow because the size and position of the tattoo on the eyebrow may not make surgical excision a viable method.
These use an acid solution, usually Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) that is applied to the skin in order to remove the top layers of the skin. When chemical peel treatment is performed correctly, the tattoo ink gradually fades away over time.
However, it is important to note that chemical peels may leave an open wound that can take 6-7 days to heal. Moreover, TCA peels can be used in some tattoo removal, they aren’t always the first choice due to their potential to cause burns and skin discoloration.
Microneedling (with infusion)
This method involves the use of a device with small needles that create punctures in the skin to break up the tattoo pigment. While microneedling is used in some skin treatments, it’s not a common or particularly effective method for tattoo removal. It can break up some of the pigment, but it won’t remove a tattoo as effectively as methods like laser removal.
Many medical professionals regard creams as an unreliable method of tattoo removal. Some creams might slightly fade the tattoo but are unlikely to fully remove it. In contrast, laser tattoo removal is widely regarded as the most effective method for tattoo removal. It’s also worth noting that some of these creams can be dangerous, causing skin reactions or containing acids that can cause skin burns. Therefore, results vary among individuals; if the tattoo is new, there’s a possibility that the ink will slightly become less noticeable with specific creams.
