How it Works

If you’re thinking of tattoo removal, you’re not the only one. According to studies, nearly 11% of all people with tattoos have had them removed. 26% of millennials with tattoos wish to have them removed.

You may be considering removal for one or more of the following reasons:

  • it’s a bad tattoo
  • a relationship ended
  • you want a different tattoo
  • a desired career/job change does not favor tattoos
  • your significant other /loved one doesn’t like it
  • the tattoo has faded
  • the tattoo went out of style
  • you want to join the military

Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors. As the tattoo ink particles absorb the energy from the laser, the particles heat up and then shatter into tiny fragments. Breaking the ink up into tiny fragments, allows your immune system to then excrete the tiny ink particles.

What to Expect

During your first session, the laser’s energy will be absorbed by the ink in the uppermost layer of skin. Since tattoo ink is injected into deeper layers of the dermis, laser tattoo removal requires multiple sessions in order to penetrate multiple layers and entirely remove a tattoo. The ink penetrated by the laser in each layer must be flushed out of the area and out of your system before additional treatments can be effective. For this reason, and in order to heal blistering/scabbing, treatments should be spaced at least 6 weeks apart.
