Think Before You Ink

If you have a tattoo you regret theres a good chance your dermatologist can get it removed but there are several factors that come into play. Studies show that it will be harder to remove if:

  1. Its large, covering over 12 inches.
  2. Its colorful, ink colors other than black or red are more difficult.
  3. Its old, more than 3 years.
  4. If you smoke, smoking impairs wound healing processes.
  5. If it is on your feet or legs.
