Tattoo regret? I see a range of emotions when I meet patients for the first time and we discuss why they have decided to remove a tattoo. Sometimes it’s the name of an old flame – totally understandable. Sometimes it’s a fashion thing; they want a new design that goes with who they are today. When new ink is desired a quick fade can be accomplished in just a couple treatments. Occasionally I get patients who feel terrible that they even got a tattoo in the first place. They’ll say something like “I can’t believe I did this.” or “It was a huge mistake.” Sometimes these folks exhibit a tremendous amount of guilt over their rose or butterfly or peace sign.
If you’ve ever experienced one of these feelings you are not alone. However, getting a tattoo is neither immoral nor illegal. There’s no need to feel guilty. Luckily, the vast majority of tattoos can easily be removed with the revolutionary PicoSure laser with Boost and the skin looks as though they were never even there. If you think you’ve made a mistake by getting your tattoo, don’t feel bad, just get in touch with your nearest PicoSure provider – maybe that person will be me.
