Everyone has heard kids sing that fun song “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”. But, are they referring to tattoo removal??
Everyone has heard kids sing that fun song “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”. Well, Tattoo Removal Specialists are often asked if the location of a tattoo on the body affects the removal process. The answer, of course, is “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”.
As you may be aware, laser tattoo removal requires blood flow to the skin where the tattoo is located in order for the body’s immune system to flush out the microscopic ink particles. Tattoos on the face generally can be removed the quickest as the Head receives far more blood flow than the Shoulders, Knees or Toes.
In fact, tattoos on the feet and toes (hands and fingers, too) often take far more laser sessions than the Head or Shoulders. Certain medical conditions which decrease blood flow to the feet or hands such as Diabetes or Raynaud’s may make laser tattoo removal ineffective.
So the next time you hear your 3 year old sing “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” they might be referring to Laser Tattoo Removal.
