"Someday you're going to regret that tattoo ..."

If that day has finally arrived, join millions of others around the world who look to the latest laser techniques to remove all vestiges of a wild teenage impulse for getting tattooed.

Not too long ago, adults requesting tattoo removal suffered what looked like medieval torture methods - including dermabrasion, excision (where the tattoo would be cut away and the skin sewn back together) and chemical bleaches which often resulted in permanent scarring.

Old-fashioned methods of dermabrasion and skin bleaching have been replace with far more effective laser
removal techniques. Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity
light beam. The illustration, above, shows what a permanent tattoo might look like after several sessions.

In fact, the old procedures are still available - although new laser techniques are considered the gold standard of tattoo removal today, combining high effectiveness with low risk and minimal side effects. Average cost? $200 - $1000 or more, depending on the size and extent of the tattoo.
