Hi, I will get married next month. My fiance had a small tattoo on the back of his neck, it’s all black and large. Now he wants to remove that permanently. When I discussed with my friends, they suggested me to go for a yellow laser treatment from Toronto. Does anyone has tried this method? Does it have any side effects?

Hi,

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! !heart

There may be health implications associated with tattoo removal. I would consider if the tattoo removal is completely necessary for the following reason:

When tattooed skin comes into contact with a pulsating laser, the ink is broken into fragments and transported by white blood cells to lymph tissues for processing. The ink contains heavy metals like lead, copper, arsenic and manganese. I think removal is best to be avoided for health reasons.

This is backed by a research article:

"Pigments remaining in the skin may exhibit different chemical characteristics as compared to nonirradiated pigments again stimulating a reaction of the immune system. Some tattoo pigments containing metals could theoretically break down into toxic chemicals in the body when exposed to light."
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4411590/

The technology could be better in the future.

If your fiance does decide to have tattoo removal, do look into heavy metal detoxification to try and minimize the impact on the body. Laser tattoo removal also requires multiple sessions, where the removal may not be complete for the wedding.

I know someone who had this laser done for blood vessels. It worked really well and basically vanished them. You have to check if the yellow laser is the right wavelength to remove black ink. There's no single laser out there that can remove every tattoo colour from skin. A qualified dermatologist should step you through it and check out his skin beforehand to see if he qualifies for treatment.

Firstly, best wishes on your wonderful journey with your partner, as you build your new lives together.

I don't think your future husband has enough time to have his tattoo removed before the wedding.

Unfortunately, most of us are not aware of the dangers of heavy metal toxicity from tattoos and other products on the market. We often don't think about these things. It's not until you feel sick that you may delve into why you feel so rotten. I can't remember the website where I saw this, but you can also inherit heavy metals from your mother whilst in gestation.

He should weigh up the risks of tattoo removal. If he decides to go ahead, he should start detoxifying many months prior to removal and after, then I think removal is fine. Seeing a dermatologist who specialisers in tattoo removal would be the best way to go. Only dermatologists have medical training in this area.

A simple detox juicing recipe from http://www.all-about-juicing.com/elimin ... etals.html

2 apples, cored
2 long carrots
1 small bunch of parsley, cilantro or both
1 teaspoon of powdered chlorella

Juice the apples, carrots, and cilantro/parsley together. Add the chlorella to the juice and stir. Serve immediately. Please check the quality of the chlorella that it doesn't contain heavy metals.

Good luck and all the best.
