Laser Tattoo Removal
Having a tattoo removed is quite common, over half of tattoo recipients change their mind and would like to have their tattoos removed. Laser removal is the most common and effective method. Laser removal can be expensive and usually takes several doctor visits to complete the procedure. The laser does cause some pain and burning (like a sunburn) and usually a doctor will prescribe Tylenol and topical anesthetic ointment prior to removing the tattoo.
