Thinking of having laser tattoo removal? Now is as great of a time as any. Why you ask? Because of the cold weather we've been having here in Orlando. You see, doing laser tattoo removal on tanned skin may lead to problems. When you are tanned, melanin, the pigment that gives us our tanned look is very high in the skin. This is what gives us our "brown" coloration. During laser tattoo removal, a beam of laser is directed at the ink that is within your skin. Usually the ink is darker than your natural skin color. Hence, the beam of light hits anything that is dark in color. If you are tanned, there is a chance that the laser will not only destroy the ink particles, but also hit the melanin in the skin and cause lightening of the skin color. With the laser used at Pristine Laser Center, this is rare. However you might get transient hypo-pigmentation (lightening of the skin).
With the cold weather we've been having in Orlando, most people are wearing warmer clothing and cover their bodies and lose their tan. With less melanin in the skin, the ink from the tattoo can be removed easier without any potential problems.
