HOW DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?

More and more of us are following the trend of getting a tattoo, but it may happen that we regret having been tattooed or that we want a new tattoo. For years, the only treatment was surgical, but times have changed, and technologies have improved.


Today, picosecond lasers make removing unwanted tattoos less invasive and more effective.

Do you know how tattoo laser removal works? Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.


Anyone considering removing a tattoo should know that the size, the colors and the location of the tattoo will influence the removal process The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique.
