Non Surgical Tattoo Removal
Orlando, FL Area
While no one knows the exact time that tattoos were invented, evidence suggests that tattoos date back to Neolithic times, as far back as the 4th millennium BC. Since their discovery, tattoos have surely made their mark in mainstream culture around the world. Virtually anywhere you go, you’ll find tattoos of all different shapes, sizes, colors, and locations on the body.
While many tattooed individuals enjoy their tattoos for their whole lives, some may reach a point where they simply want their tattoo gone. They may encounter professional issues while trying to pursue their careers, or they may begin to experience the social stigmas associated with some tattoos. Some individuals may find that while they loved their tattoo 10 years ago, they just don’t like it anymore. Dr. Kaplan can help these individuals remove their tattoos using a surgical or a non-surgical tattoo removal procedure.
Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Tattoo Removal
The process for non-surgical tattoo removal is considerably different than the process for surgical tattoo removal. Non-surgical tattoo removal is less invasive, and does not require any skin removal. Surgical tattoo removal involves complete removal of the tattooed skin. Dr. Kaplan will use a scalpel to remove the skin, and will use stitches to close the skin after the procedure is complete.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal involves the use of special lasers that are applied to the skin. These lasers work to slowly and safely break up the ink within the patient’s skin. Due to the slower nature of these results, laser tattoo removal will require several sessions to achieve the intended results. The number of sessions required will depend on the size of the tattoo, the location of the tattoo, and the evenness and depth of the tattoo, among other considerations.
