Leoni Aesthetics are offering Tattoo removal.

Tattooing has been around for many years and has changed in style and method of delivery over the years as well. Tattooing has been practiced across the globe since at least Neolithic times, as evidenced by mummified preserved skin, ancient art, and the archaeological record. The oldest discovery of tattooed human skin was found on the upper lip of a Chinchorro culture mummy from South America, dating to approximately 6000 BC.

Latest statistics show that 29% of men and women in the UK aged between 16 and 44 have a tattoo, and it’s on the rise, especially among the females. This number is constantly growing due to the increasing popularity of decorative tattooing among the younger generation. However, many come to later regret their decision, and seek to remove them.

Tattoos still seem to affect more than what people think of you on the street, there are career implications in your choice of body art too. While most employees don’t mind tattoos,( i have them myself and more than one !)  “what really matters, is how customers might perceive employees with visible tattoos.

In fact, Back in 2011, Job centre staff were informed they could use public money towards tattoo removal if it was preventing a job seeker getting employment, such is the message that visible, large tattoos still send to many people. So, for some jobs, and some vocations, that rash decision in a tattoo parlor in Ibiza might just backfire. Between 2011 and 2012, there was a 32% rise in demand for tattoo removal, suggesting people found that their plans for the future and the foot-long dolphin inked down their back weren’t ideal bedfellows.

We use the Q-switched Nd YAG for tattoo removal the lasers work by firing a beam of light through the skin in extremely short pulses. The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink creating a reaction which breaks down the ink into very tiny particles. This allows the body’s defense mechanisms to take over and gradually remove the pigment. Because each pulse is so short (typically 25 billionths of a second!) And is targeted directly onto the pigment, there is normally no lasting damage to the skin or surrounding tissue. The whole procedure is repeated several times, usually at about six to eight weekly intervals, so allowing time for the body to remove as much pigment as possible.

Why Are Tattoo’s hard to remove?.

Tattoos are so hard to remove because they are deposited in the dermis, the lower layer of skin under your epidermis. The introduction of tattoo ink into the dermis triggers an immune response that, ironically, makes the tattoo last longer

Immune Response to the ink.

When tattoo ink is deposited in the dermis, below the five epidermal layers, the foreign substance triggers an immune response. The cells in the skin that attack foreign bodies are called phagocytes (phago=”eat,” cytes=”cells”). These “cell eaters” engulf and consume the ink particles. Then fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen) lock the phagocytes together in a network under the skin, just below where the epidermis meets the dermis, about 1 millimeter deep. This enables the tattoo ink to stay in place for many years.
