Laser Tattoo Removal is a medical procedure that uses laser energy to target and break down the pigments in the skin. The laser light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo, which breaks apart the ink particles. This promotes the body’s natural ability to clear away the tattoo without causing any damage to the surrounding skin.
Laser Tattoo Removal has become a very popular option for those who want to remove or fade a tattoo. It is safe, effective and much less expensive than traditional methods. Additionally, it can be used on all skin types, colors, as well as several different types of tattoos including permanent makeup, colored, and black and gray tattoos.
Some of the common reasons why people decide to undergo Laser Tattoo Removal include wanting to get rid of an old tattoo that no longer fits with their lifestyle, or that they are unhappy with. Another reason is to fade a tattoo to cover it up with a different tattoo.
Laser Tattoo Removal is not limited to traditional tattoos alone. It is also used to remove other types of tattoos, such as medical tattoos that mark the locations for radiation treatments. Additionally, it can effectively eliminate cosmetic tattoos like lip liner, eyeliner, and eyebrows. Regardless of the type of tattoo or the reason for removal, Laser Tattoo Removal is a safe and highly effective method to get rid of unwanted tattoos.
The laser is used to break apart the pigment that makes up the tattoo. The light is absorbed by the pigment, which breaks up the tattoo into tiny particles. These particles are then removed from the body by the body’s natural immune system. This process is usually repeated multiple times and takes several weeks to complete.
The laser used for Laser Tattoo Removal uses a specific wavelength that is tailored to target the particular color of the tattoo pigment. Different tattoos require different lasers, as different colors absorb different wavelengths of light. The technician will use a different laser for black and grey tattoos, as well as for colored tattoos. The technician may also use a combination of lasers to target multiple colors in the same tattoo.
Anyone looking to remove an unwanted tattoo can be a good candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal. However, there are certain factors that can affect the outcome of the procedure, such as the location of the tattoo, size, age of the tattoo and the skin type of the individual.

Laser Tattoo Removal offers those who want to be rid of their unwanted tattoos a safe and effective solution. With the right technique and proper aftercare, results are virtually guaranteed.
During the Laser Tattoo Removal procedure, the patient will be comfortably seated in a chair. The technician will begin by numbing the area with a topical or local anesthetic. Once the area is numb, the technician will use the laser to break apart the pigment of the tattoo. The laser is carefully adjusted to the specific pigment of the tattoo and the number of sessions will vary based on the size and color of the tattoo. Each session typically lasts about 15 minutes. Afterwards, the technician will apply a protective ointment and bandage the area.
Most people report that Laser Tattoo Removal is not painful. The technician will use a topical or local anesthetic to numb the area before beginning the procedure. Some people may experience a mild discomfort, similar to the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Most patients report that the procedure is relatively painless and often not uncomfortable at all.
The number of sessions required for Laser Tattoo Removal will vary depending on the size, color, and age of the tattoo. Generally, smaller, simpler tattoos may only require one or two sessions, while larger, more complex tattoos may require more sessions. It typically takes several weeks for the results of the procedure to be visible. Each session is typically spaced four to six weeks apart, and the technician will assess the results of the first session before determining the number of additional sessions needed.
While Laser Tattoo Removal is generally considered safe, there are some risks and side effects associated with the procedure. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, and blistering of the treated area. These side effects are generally mild and will usually fade within a few days. Other rarer, more serious side effects may include infection and scarring. It is important to be mindful of proper aftercare instructions provided by the technician in order to reduce the risk of complications.
After the procedure is complete, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the technician. This will usually include applying a protective ointment and bandage to the treated area for several days. In the following weeks, it is also important to avoid activities that can cause irritation or bleeding in the area. It is also important to wear sunscreen and to limit sun exposure to the treated area until it has completely healed.
The recovery time for Laser Tattoo Removal usually takes several days, but may vary depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo.
