Laser tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal is a procedure done to try to remove an unwanted tattoo.
Tattoo ink is placed beneath the top layer of the skin. That makes tattoo removal more complicated – and expensive – than the original tattoo making.

Why It’s Done

You might consider tattoo removal if you regret a tattoo or you’re unhappy with the appearance of your tattoo. Perhaps the tattoo has faded or blurred, or you decide that the tattoo doesn’t fit your current image.

Tattoo removal might also be important if you develop an allergic reaction to the tattoo or other complications such as an infection.

  • Laser treatment works on principle of selective photothermolysis (hearing the tattoo pigment without harming the surrounding skin), using tattoo ink as target.
  • Laser treatment causes tattoo ink/pigment particles to heat up and break down into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces of tattoo ink are then absorbed by the body over the course of several weeks. The result is that the tattoo is lightened over.
  • Professional tattoos may require 6-8 sessions, whereas in amateur tattoos (use less ink and placed superficially in skin) 3-5 laser treatments are effective.
  • Yellow, red, green, and fluorescent inks are more challenging to treat.
  • Blue, black and darker colored inks can be removed more completely.
  • Thanks to new technology, laser removal of tattoos is safe and effective.
