How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser Tatto Removal is an effective treatment

Getting a tattoo removed is much simpler now that modern medicine has introduced various types of skin lasers to help break down the stubborn tattoo ink that causes their permanency. Laser tattoo removal is an invention that many individuals who wish to have tattoos removed are thankful for. After a few treatments, the tattoo’s obvious fading makes the tattoo less visible and obvious. Of all other tattoo removal treatments, laser treatments offer the most effective removal possible as of today.

With concentrated and high-frequency lights, laser treatments help to break down tattoo ink so that the body’s immune system can then move in to expel it from the body. Not all tattoos can be removed and depending on the size, complexity, and colors on the tattoo, the tattoo may be easier or more difficult to remove. It is important to remember that a tattoo specialist can help you to determine what the prognosis is for your particular case of laser tattoo removal. Each type of laser is specially designed to assist with the removal of certain types of inks. Individuals with fair skin and tattoos on the arms, legs, chest, buttocks, and other fleshy areas of the body are easier to treat and usually see the best results. Typically, the less skin and the more boney the area (finger, ankles, toes, etc.) the harder it is to remove a tattoo.

Laser tattoo removal is usually just as painful as getting a tattoo. There are ways to help alleviate this pain by taking Tylenol or by applying a cream which can help ease the pain as well. After the treatment, ice is often applied for about a half hour to ease and prevent swelling while an antibiotic ointment and sterile dressing can be placed on thereafter. Since the laser acts as a source of very high-frequency light breaking through the dermal layer, the treatment site is just like sunburn and should be treated as such. Laser tattoo removal, aside from the initial pain and the healing process, is well worth the time and energy, not to mention the financial commitment. It is the leading way to remove a tattoo in a way that does not force chemicals or acids onto skin which can be potentially harmful and irritating.

Most people imagine that laser tattoo removal involves ‘burning’ the tattoo out of the skin. The reality is much simpler in method and far less painful than most people think. Laser tattoo removal is carried out using a simple process of employing short bursts from a laser, which create intense pulses of light. Each pulse passes through the top layers of the skin and is absorbed into the tattoo pigments that sit below. The energy created by the laser breaks up the pigments, which are later removed naturally by the body’s immune system, with the white blood cells ‘flushing out’ the fragments. Thanks to intensive research carried out over the last few years into the optimum frequency to carry out this operation, the original and natural pigment of the skin remains untouched, minimizing scarring.

Laser tattoo removal will not remove the entire tattoo in one go. Because the pigments break up at different intensities, several sessions may be required to remove a tattoo completely. Usually the black pigments clear first because black absorbs all types of laser wavelengths. Other colours only absorb certain wavelengths for example red tattoo ink absorbs green laser light and consequently those specific wavelengths have to be used to remove other colours. There is usually a minimum four-week gap between each treatment to allow the immune system to absorb and remove the pigment, so laser surgery isn’t instantaneous – it may take many months for the treatment to be completed.

Laser tattoo removal sessions are relatively short, usually only lasting a matter of a few minutes. Once the procedure has finished the doctor may dress the area worked on with an antibacterial ointment and sterile dressing to protect the skin against the risk of infection. The area should then be kept clean but not bathed until at least 24 hours after the procedure.

As with all laser surgery, laser tattoo removal can result in hyper-pigmentation, which causes the skin to darken, or hypo-pigmentation where the skin whitens. With tattoos that have been in place for a considerable time, incomplete pigmentation removal may leave some traces of the original tattoo. There is also the possibility of scarring as a result of the procedure, particularly if the treated area becomes infected.

Laser tattoo removal doesn’t usually hurt as such, but may be considered to be an uncomfortable procedure. It has been likened to being repeatedly snapped by a thin rubber band or having hot drops of wax or fat dropped onto the surface of the skin. In comparison to the original pain felt during the tattoo’s placement on the skin it is about parable.

The tattoo is an expression of one’s personality, and the best course of action is to think very carefully about having a tattoo in the first place. If you feel that you will still be happy with it in 20 years’ time, then it can be a worthwhile and meaningful addition to your body. If, however, you fall out of love with your body art, laser tattoo removal offers you the opportunity to reverse what was previously considered to be a permanent alteration of the skin surface.

Conclusion

Deciding where to get laser treatments performed is simple and should involve making sure that the tattoo removal clinic in question uses lasers which will successfully remove the different colors in the tattoo. If you are in Brisbane, this clinic may help: http://www.lasertattooremovalbrisbane.com.au/

Since certain lasers work better for certain colors, it is important to make sure that you can find a place which can effectively remove your tattoo. Researching the laser and the options available to you are obviously important so that you are fully aware of what to expect if laser tattoo removal is your primary choice to have your tattoo removed. Additionally, you can be sure that a tattoo removal specialist would be glad to go over your options and consult with you. Often, during initial consultations, a fee may or may not be assessed, yet if you decide to follow up with the treatment, you can often apply the initial fee to the first treatment. Various clinics offer different deals, but either way, it is worth it to look into laser tattoo removal as an option for your tattoo removal.

All aboard!! Getting your small business on board your CRM journey.

It’s a big ask, but someone has to take it on. If you’ve realised that your business needs to start driving efficiencies through CRM, you need a champion to be in the driver’s seat.

Let’s face it. Small businesses just don’t have the specialised resources, multi-disciplinary teams and project methodologies that big businesses have. But then again, that’s probably a good thing, as red tape can just slow you down.

We work with a lot of small businesses, and there’s usually one person who has been trusted with job of moving the business forward on its CRM journey. Often it’s the business owner themselves, but just as often, they will charge someone else with the task – usually the person with the most to gain from getting the best solution in place, or the one who’s known for whipping things in to shape.

Putting aside your real job, your role as CRM champion is important. It’s a big task with a lot riding on it. If it didn’t, you wouldn’t be the chosen one.

So here’s a little pep talk to help you on your way. These are our tips for being a great CRM champion.

  1. Sell the vision

You are bringing your own unique perspective to the role, but not everyone sees things the way you do. When everyone is doing a different job, they have different frustrations – or might think everything is just fine the way it is. It’s your job to sell the vision of what the future looks like.

 

Just about everyone will be impacted when you introduce a CRM solution in a small business – and some people are simply resistant to change, especially if it sounds anything like more work. Your challenge is to paint a picture of how CRM will help them, rather than be a hindrance.

  1. Search out the sticky problems

You need to get some clarity on what problems you’re trying to solve by implementing a CRM. What are the big hitters? What are the niggly annoyances?

 

You need to gather this intelligence from the people who matter – that’s the people who will be using the CRM. Launch an investigation. Talk to everyone. Learn what they do and how they do it. Ask what frustrates them. Cover all of your bases – the production team, the receptionist, the sales manager – everyone. Understand the flow of work, and what problems are created by the step before. Listen for things like “Those sales guys make it really hard for us in production when they don’t …..”.

There’s clues everywhere for how CRM can help drive consistency and efficiency in your business.

  1. Make a list – check it twice

From the results of your investigation, make a list. Â Then you can prioritise what’s urgent and what is nice to have. This is important as you might not be able to do everything at once. You might need help from your CRM implementation partner at this point. Â If you find the right help from a good implementation partner, they can inject their knowledge of what is standard functionality and what requires greater customisation effort. Â You might find that it’s possible to tick everything off your list on day one.

 

We’ve seen enough to know that you can also get great results from breaking the project into phases. There’s a lot to be said for getting the basics right and focusing the big transformational pieces of work.

Once people start using the system they have a much better perspective and context for what else is needed. You might find that some of your second phase priorities might change or be unnecessary and new ideas will arise for how your CRM can better support your processes.

Redo your list, resell and vision and get moving on Phase 2.

  1. Find a partner who understands you

We might be biased, but it’s essential you get the right help. You need to find a CRM implementation partner that gets you and gets CRM. Every business we work with is different, and every CRM starts and grows in different directions because of the unique problems you need to solve for.

 

That’s why we work exclusively with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. It’s extremely flexible and we can make it fit just about any business problem we come across. It’s a matter of intimately knowing CRM and getting to know your business and what you want to achieve.

Ok, so now it’s time to get out there. Start championing the cause!
