Tattoo removal techniques have improved greatly over the years. Now, with the help of laser technology, tattoos can be removed with minimal scarring. Depending on the laser type used, even selected colored tattoos can be removed, while black ink tattoos can be completely erased.
However, the advanced technologies used in tattoo removal can cost quite a lot in the West, and this is one reason why many people seeking tattoo removal choose to travel to Southeast Asia. However, aside from the significant cost savings of up to 70 percent, they also enjoy other benefits:
- Quality results. High-intensity laser light is now used to break up the pigment colors of tattoos in a procedure called the Q-switch laser, which can prevent the scars that other options such as surgical excision and dermabrasion cannot. This modern laser technology is now widely available in cosmetic clinics in South Korea and Singapore.
- Experienced doctors. To ensure that international patients receive world-class care, renowned clinics in Southeast Asia hire only the best doctors who have received training from the United States and Europe.
- Reduced waiting time. With a huge demand for tattoo removal, clinics in the West are sometimes unable to provide prompt treatment to all patients who require the procedure. In Southeast Asia, however, the abundance of qualified clinics and board-certified doctors lead to minimal to zero waiting time.
