Recently, 26 years old Ananya Chaudhry from Gurgaon came to us with a tattoo removal requirement. She wanted to get it removed because she had some painful memories associated with the tattoo and could not bear it any longer, moreover she was getting married and wanted to start afresh. A lot of patients come to us with primarily emotional and psychological reasons for tattoo removal.
After examining the tattoo, we found out that it was a permanent tattoo on the upper back with deep ink pigmentation, but could easily be removed with our most effective laser techniques.
Laser tattoo removal techniques can get rid of your unwanted tattoo with minimal side effects.
We started Ananya’s tattoo removal treatment with a consultation session with Dr. Sumit Gupta, who is the expert dermatologist. Dr. Gupta examined, evaluated and thoroughly checked the tattoo for the possible treatment that could be offered. Thereafter, the expert advice was offered about the technique, modality, effects, and results of the treatment. It was clearly mentioned that the number of required sessions depends upon the age, size, and color of the tattoo. It was told that the color of Ananya’s skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment was embedded, will also affect the removal technique.
The Technique Used to Remove Ananya’s Tattoo
Lasers technique is used to remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity laser light beam. Black tattoo pigments are the easiest to remove as they absorb all laser wavelengths, but other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color. Ananya’s tattoo was in three different colors, thus, we had to exclusively customize her treatment.
Ananya was provided with shield eye-glasses before her session went into progress, to protect her eyes from the effects of high laser-beam. Highly sophisticated SpectraXT laser device from Lutronic, USA was used to deliver exceptional results for her tattoo removal. The device allows us to customize the wavelength, spot size, and energy to a great extent, empowering us to target different kinds of pigments at different depths effectively without any side effects. All three colors in her tattoo were targeted differently with varied wavelengths and energy.
Anaya’s had to undergo 4 sessions to get the tattoo completely removed. After every session ice-pack application was used to soothe the area and provide added comfort. She was advised to use protective antibiotic cream and sunblock to cover the treated skin whenever she ventured out. Apart from this, she never faced any side effects or complications throughout her tattoo removal treatment by Dr. Sumit Gupta
In just a few sessions, her tattoos begin to fade and she was extremely delighted with the results. Ananya left as a hapdelhipy person after her treatment was complete, and her smiles provided us many more reasons to smile even more.
