The laser removes the tattoo ink with the energy of light. Tattoo ink is removed by using a specific wavelength of light, which passes into the skin but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles, which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems.
All tattoos are layers of ink, stacked on top of each other, creating a thick concentration of pigment particles. The thick concentration and multiples layers are what require tattoo removal to take place over several visits. This process mimics the natural fading that the passing of time would naturally create. On average, this process requires 6-20 treatments.
