How Laser Tattoo Removal Works


Laser Tattoo RemovalIt isn’t uncommon these days for many of us to get piercings, tattoos, or other things designated as body modification. For many people these things represent youthful expression and a symbol of our individuality and continue to hold their value for our entire lives. However, this isn’t always the case for some. While things like piercings can be removed, tattoos are a little more difficult.

How it Works

The only method that has shown positive results in removing tattoos is the laser tattoo removal process. This process is actually not very complicated and many people think it sounds much more difficult than it really is.

  • The way this process works is a certified technician trained in the use of this particular tool will treat you over a series of appointments.
  • The tool itself uses lasers that are calibrated and designed specifically for this purpose.
  • The lasers essentially evaporate the moisture out of the ink in the tattoo.
  • When this happens the ink breaks up into smaller constituent parts and the body’s immune system can slowly remove it from the layers of skin.

This technology is improving all of the time. Scientists who study the tools used for laser removal of tattoos have even narrowed down the particular wavelengths of light that work best for the laser. There are many things that can influence the effectiveness of the laser such as the size of the tattoo, the density of the ink, and how old it is.
