Erase your tattoo at Results Med Spa outside Tulsa, OK. We offer the latest technology in laser tattoo removal.
Lasers have been used for tattoo removal for more than 20 years. It is estimated that close to 25% of the U.S. population has some sort of tattoo. Eventually, a significant number of them will choose laser tattoo removal. Sometimes you may come to regard your tattoo as part of your past that you don’t need a constant reminder of, other times your aesthetic tastes have changed as you have matured and you no longer want to present yourself the same way to the world.
Laser tattoo removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects. Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest to treat.

What Makes Tattoo Removal a Challenge?
In general, tattoos are difficult to remove because the tattoo pigment is injected into the lower layers of skin and becomes sealed by collagen fibers. It is very difficult to remove the tattoo pigment without affecting the surrounding tissue. But lasers can do the job quite effectively.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works?
Tattoo removal is most commonly performed using lasers that react with the ink in the tattoo and break it down. The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. Laser tattoo removal requires repeat visits to remove a tattoo.
Alternatives to Laser Removal
The alternatives to laser treatment involve either physically removing the pigment and the surrounding skin surgically and skin grafting, or chemically destroying the pigment using acids. In either case, the surrounding skin is damaged and will require significant aftercare. Significant scarring would be an expected outcome of non-laser removal methods.
