Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser Tattoo Removal is the process of using laser light to break up the ink in a tattoo so that your body will absorb it naturally over time. The laser is applied in small microbursts that penetrate the outer skin layers and target the tattoo ink itself. The ink is broken up into small particles which are naturally carried away and disposed of by your body. After several weeks you will see your tattoo fading away. Depending on the type of tattoo, your skin type, and other factors, several treatments may be necessary to fully remove the tattoo.
Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.
Depending on the size and color of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary.
Smaller tattoos require fewer pulses while larger ones require more. In either case, the tattoo requires several treatments and multiple visits. At each treatment, the tattoo should become progressively lighter.
