Using a pigment removal laser we remove the ink trapped in the skin. The laser changes particles of pigment into tiny pieces that are absorbed by the body and flushed out naturally by the lymphatic and immune system. Most tattoos can be removed within a few treatments depending on the color of the tattoo. Laser tattoo removal treatments are typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and the number of treatments necessary is determined by the amount, type, color, and depth of tattoo ink.
How does laser tattoo removal work if tattoos are meant to be permanent?
Tattoos are applied to be permanent because an insoluble ink is injected into the dermis, or middle layer of the skin. This is how they remain visible and are not absorbed by the body. Our Laser tattoo removal process uses wavelengths of light that targets the specific pigments in each tattoo’s ink which break the ink into tiny particles that the body can absorb and remove naturally.
