When an individual wants to rid themselves of an unwanted tattoo, there are numerous benefits to undergoing laser tattoo removal using a state-of-the-art YAG Laser.
One of the most important benefits of opting for YAG Laser tattoo removal is its amazing ability to treat complex tattoos featuring a variety of colors. In addition to being able to treat tattoos that are traditional blue-black in color, YAG Laser tattoo removal is equally adept at treating tattoos in other colors, including red and orange. YAG Lasers are also very effective at helping remove a category of tattoos known as traumatic tattoos which result from an accident.

Men and women who have undergone cosmetic tattoos such as permanent eyeliner, lip liner and eyebrow liner no longer have to be stuck with these procedures. YAG Laser treatment is very efficient at eliminating tattoos of the cosmetic variety.
Another wonderful benefit of undergoing a YAG Laser procedure is its ability to reduce the appearance of brown age spots, birthmarks that are brown in color, in addition to unwanted café au lait spots, all of which can make people feel self-conscious, affecting their self-esteem.
The YAG Laser tattoo removal procedure is a relatively simple one when done in the hands of an experienced expert – like those here at Mariposa MedSpa. By passing the laser light over the area to be treated, the ink pigments are broken up into microscopically small particles, which are eventually absorbed by the body for ultimate elimination.
Each treatment lasts about 10 minutes in length and most patients require a series of these treatments to gain optimum results. The only side effect that results from having YAG Laser tattoo removal is a slight to moderate irritation of the surface of the skin, which usually lasts for several days, but no longer than one week depending upon the complexity of the tattoo being removed.
YAG Laser treatment for tattoo removal is recommended for almost all skin types except skin having naturally dark pigment. It is also a procedure that works best on skin that has not been tanned. Patients can go about their normal routine after having a laser removal treatment. The procedure itself is not painful, thanks to the application of a topical anesthetic cream to the treatment area prior to the use of the laser light. In some cases, a lidocaine injection can guarantee that there is no sensation of pain throughout any portion of the treatment. Patients must keep the treated area clean and well moisturized following the procedure, avoiding direct exposure to sunlight for at least seven days for best results.
