What is the purpose of tattoo removal?

Tattooing has become more and more fashionable in recent decades, in France, Europe and around the world. Stars of cinema, song, rock, football, tennis, modeling… many celebrities and all kinds of people proudly wear a first name, a date, flowers, a dragon, a dolphin, a butterfly or a unicorn head, in their back, on their chest, their stomach, an arm, a buttock, in the neck or ankles. Not to mention the permanent make-up, which of course also attracts more and more people. But, the colours eventually change over the years, the lines start to run, or quite simply, you are tired of this pattern, and you have to remove it.

What are the existing tattoo removal methods?

For a long time, detattooing was only performed by specialized surgeons or dermatologists as part of a cosmetic medical treatment. The classic medical tattoo removal technique consists in exposing the tissues to laser light, which causes skin depigmentation. The pulse of the picosecond laser, for example, fragments the ink molecules, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. But this medical and surgical method has many disadvantages. Laser exposure can cause complications in some cases, such as skin whitening, redness, itching, burns or even infections, especially since scarring will always take some time. It is a tattoo removal treatment that can be relatively painful, and it takes a good number of sessions to complete large drawings, which is quite expensive, even with the Picosure laser. Fortunately, new and more modern tattoo removal processes have recently been developed, including the penetration of a lactic acid-based solution into the epidermis. This physiological substance, already present in the human body, will quickly eliminate pigments and all inks. It is an effective, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that removes tattoo inks and permanent make-up much faster, permanently and without suffering.

Where can you get tattooed?

In Paris, and in large provincial cities such as Marseille, Bordeaux, Lille or Lyon, there are many clinics and specialized medical centers that perform tattoo removal by medical laser. But many beauty and depilatory centers, or beauty salons throughout the country, can now also perform laser-free tattoo removal treatments, which are just as effective and much less expensive. Alternatives to laser or cosmetic surgery are ideal in many cases, and a consultation with a specialized facility will allow you to immediately determine if you can benefit from them as well. Substances, colours, nature of inks and lacquers used, density and saturation, depth and surface, area to be treated, these are all elements that must be taken into account before choosing the appropriate treatment. Ask professionals in your area or neighborhood for information during a pre-therapeutic consultation, and get clear answers to all your questions about removing your tattoo, or to remove an eyebrow tattoo or your permanent makeup.
