There are many reasons why you may want to remove your existing tattoos. Perhaps they hinder you from finding a job or it is a symbolic tattoo for your gang and you are no longer connected with the group. There are two commonly available laser tattoos removals in the market nowadays.

One thing is for sure: the pain will be there. It cannot be avoided and the intensity of the pain is experiences more in the removal than in the application process of the tattoo.
Laser removal is the most expensive and common procedure. This procedure uses target inks with pulses of highly concentrated light. It breaks the tattoo ink into tiny fragments, too tiny that the immune system can cleaned it away.
Overly expensive, the method costs, for each session, from $250 to $850; and the sessions can give results that range from zero to fully completed removal of the tattoo.
The IPL or also known as the Intense Pulse Light Therapy is the newly launched technique. Its procedure is almost similar to the laser removal but the difference is the type of light it uses. The IPL uses high intensity light which is emitted in pulses.
This process is less painful and more effective than laser removal. Although the cost can be relatively high, it is still cheaper compared to the laser procedure because the average charge for it is $10 – $15 per pulse.
