What is Laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is the use of The Q Switched Nd:YAG type of laser technology to remove unwanted tattoos.
How Does Laser tattoo removal Work?
The laser is applied to the tattooed area of the skin, and the light is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, which absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles.
In the days and weeks following laser tattoo removal, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade. Over a series of treatments, more and more of the ink shatters, leaving the skin free of ink.
What Are The Side Effects?
Side effects of laser tattoo removal include discomfort (minimized with numbing cream and skin cooling), redness of the skin, blistering, changes in skin pigmentation and rarely scarring.
Multiple sessions are required for the desired results.
