Removing a tattoo is a big step for many people and an easy decision for others. Irrespective of your mindset when deciding to have a tattoo removed, there are certain factors that should be considered.
Here’s what you should know and think about before engaging the services of a skin clinic to have a tattoo removed:
Research your skin clinic: Find out as much information as you can about the reputation of the clinic and the services they offer. Even call up a few clinics in your area and ask if they have the required certifications to operate the Laser equipment and request for them to send you through some information.
Understand the different technologies available: There is a lot of information on the internet about specific equipment and laser tattoo removal techniques. You can also speak to your GP about their recommendations.
Request a free consultation with the skin clinic: Once you have decided on the clinic and the technology you want to use for the removal of your tattoo, such as the PicoSure Laser, request a free consultation with the skin technician who will be actually doing the procedure. Any reputable clinic will offer a free consultation to answer any questions before you need to committ to having the procedure done.
Have a list of questions ready: When you meet with the technician who will be performing the procedure, have a list of questions written down to take with you. Don’t worry about feeling silly with your questions, you need to be 100% comfortable with both the procedure itself and the person performing it.
