40 MAY/JUNE 2014 | Med Esthetics By Wendy Lewis An increase in the number of people getting tattoos translates to more demand for tattoo removal, and improved treatment modalities are up to the challenge. WHAT COULD BE MORE BEAUTIFUL than a blue butterfl y, poised to take fl ight, on your lower back? Or a waving fl ag on the upper arm just in time for the 4th of July? Even better, a big, bold red heart pierced by an arrow and encircled with a lover's name? Such body art designs may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but many tattoos lose their allure after a few years—or worse, after a few hours. It's little wonder that tattoo regret is an increasingly common lament, and the demand for tattoo removal is growing. © ISTOCKPHOTO.COM <> E r a s i n g t h e P a s t M E D 5 - 6 1 4 . i n d d 4 0 Erasing the Past MED5-614.indd 40 4 / 1 6 / 1 4 4 : 4 4 P M 4/16/14 4:44 PM
