Laser Tattoo Removal vs. Tattoo Cover Up in Dallas

Generally speaking, two options are available if you want to get rid of a tattoo. You can either choose to have it covered by a talented tattoo coverup artist or opt for laser tattoo removal.

A tattoo coverup artist will work with your existing tattoo and create something new (and much better!) to cover up what was already there. It’s important to work with someone who specializes in tattoo coverups if you choose this option – otherwise, you might be left with a tattoo that’s much worse than before.

If you’re interested in this option, we have tattoo coverup artists in Dallas at Lamar Street Tattoo Club. Get in touch with us to learn more!

Alternatively, you could opt for laser tattoo removal. This is where we actually remove the tattoo from your skin using a high-powered laser. If you’re not looking to replace the bad tattoo with a better one, then laser tattoo removal is the way to go.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

But how does laser tattoo removal work? Removing an old tattoo from your skin using a high-powered laser might sound a bit intimidating, but the procedure is actually quite straightforward.

When you choose to get a tattoo, your body’s immune system immediately recognizes the tattoo ink as a foreign matter. But, since the ink particles are quite large, it’s quite difficult to remove them from the skin once they are there. This is where the laser comes into play.

In short, laser tattoo removal utilizes a technology in which a high-powered, very short, pulsed beam of light is delivered at a specific wavelength to the treatment site. The beam passes through the skin, breaking the tattoo ink into smaller particles. Once this occurs, the tiny particles are removed or “flushed” out by your immune system, and over time the tattoo eventually begins to fade.

At Lamar Street Tattoo Club, we use only the best when it comes to laser tattoo removal in Dallas, TX. This is why we recently upgraded our technology to the Astanza Duality.

Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

It depends on your pain threshold, but some discomfort is generally associated with the procedure. Some patients have described it as if a rubber band was being constantly snapped at the skin, while others have compared it to actually getting a tattoo. Regardless of your pain threshold, various methods are available to help relieve your discomfort.

What Happens After Your Tattoo is Removed?

After your procedure, the healing process takes some time. The treatment may create a superficial burn wound on the skin, and patients may experience swelling, redness, blisters, and scabs. These side effects are temporary, though. Check out our laser tattoo removal aftercare page for more information on the healing process.
