Extreme Measures for Tattoo Removal

May 31

Of course at the time you get a tattoo, you know it is for life and that it is the right decision at the time. However things don’t always turn out the way you expect. Take Melanie B from the Spice Girls. On a recent Piers Morgan show, she revealed that she resorted to drastic measures to remove her tattoo – the name of her ex spouse. She chose to have the tattoo surgically removed – she wanted the tattoo removed immediately.  It is believed that she stored the cut out tattoo in a glass jar! Of course this is a desperate measure. Not something we would recommend at LaserYou given the complications of infection and scarring. 

It is well excepted that laser tattoo removal even though it is the most advanced method for removing tattoos, is a process. It can take up about two years to remove a tattoo given that the treatment is eight weeks apart. (Please note having more regular treatment will not produce any faster results). However it is recognised as being the safe method for tattoo removal when performed by a trained, qualified and insured technician.

Patience and perseverance is the key. After all good things come to those who wait.
