What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Tattoos are created by a pigment being inserted into the undercarpet of the skin called the dermis. The pigments used to create tattoos come in a variety of colours and formulations. The modern versions of tattoos often come in multiple colours in addition to black, blue, dark green. It is very common for laser tattoo removal patients to be present with yellow, red, bright blue, orange and purple. With tattoos being so common in the modern era, it is inevitable that laser tattoo removal would have increased proportionately.
It is estimated in North America that over 50% of all women between the ages of 18 and 45 have a tattoo and 45% of all men in the same age group.Unfortunately, tattoos are generally for life and the emotions and motivation that resulted in the tattoo may not. Thus, eventually there is between a 25% and 35% regret factor with the tattoo that was created.
Market research company, IBISWorld, estimates that, in the U.S., the tattoo removal industry is now worth $75.5 million, up 500 per cent from a decade earlier. The company predicts the business will be valued at $83.2 million by 2018.
