Laser Tattoo Removal West Hollywood
The tattoos that you get when you’re young aren’t always the tattoos that you want when you get older, start a career, meet your fiancee’s parents, etc. Luckily, your past mistakes don’t have to stay with you forever. You can always turn to laser tattoo removal in West Hollywood at BSG.
Do You Want to Lose Your Tats?
Some people love having ridiculous tattoos. Steve-O is a perfect example. In one interview you, he explained that, “As long as you realize that it’s [the tattoo] stupid when you get it, then you don’t have to worry about realizing that it’s stupid later.”
But let’s be honest. Very few people in the world are like Steve-O.
That tribal band that you got around your bicep when you were in college? It can start to feel pretty stupid when you realize that you don’t belong to that tribe.
That tattoo that you got while drunkenly traveling in a foreign country? Maybe it doesn’t send the right message to employers.
That lower back tattoo of two dolphins leaping from the water in such a way that they kiss and their bodies form the shape of a heart? Let’s not even get into that one.
You’ve decided that it’s time to get rid of some tats. No matter what your reasons are, you need to find a safe, successful way to remove them.
Tattoo Removal in the Past
Tattoo removal was once a barbaric process that hurt a lot and didn’t always work. If you think that getting a tattoo feels uncomfortable, then you don’t even want to hear about the ways people removed tattoos a few hundred years ago. Or maybe you do want to know about it, in which case you should read this article from The Atlantic.
If you don’t feel like reading a long article, just know that tattoo removal often involved scraping, intense brushing, and a whole lot of pain. Not exactly what most people think of as a good time.

Luckily, today’s tattoo removal procedures don’t involve some sadist scraping away your skin. Instead, you can take advantage of laser tattoo removal in West Hollywood.
PicoSure Laser tattoo removal uses picosecond (one trillionth of a second) pulses of light that penetrate your upper layer of skin to obliterate the ink underneath. It doesn’t matter what kind of tattoo you have. Laser tattoo removal works even if you have a huge, black tattoo that other technologies can only fade.
What can you expect when you come to BSG for laser tattoo removal? You’ll probably experience some minor discomfort during the process. You’ve gotten a tattoo before, though, so you know how to handle a little pain. For most people, laser removal doesn’t hurt as bad as getting the tattoo.
You can also expect to come back for several sessions. The number of sessions that you need will depend on the size of your tattoo. For most people, PicoSure takes between 7 and 10 sessions; a major advancement over the older style (yag) lasers used by most offices which often take 20-30 sessions and aren’t capable of even getting similar results.
You can also expect professional treatment from a specialist who has been trained to remove tattoos. Lauren Chan, a writer for Glamour, laments that she got a tattoo removed at a beauty parlor where the employee didn’t really know what she was doing. Don’t worry. At BSG, you’re in the hands of professionals who take their jobs and your skin seriously.
