How It Works
Patients describe the removal treatments as a sensation similar to getting the tattoo – some have described it as snapping a rubber band against the skin. Topical anesthetics can be used to make the procedure more comfortable. After treatment, you will need to care for your skin in the same manner as you protected it when it was a new tattoo.
Tattoo removal works by breaking up ink deposits with laser energy. Laser energy is absorbed by the tattoo ink and it is broken up into smaller particles which are carried away by the body’s immune system. With successive treatments, the tattoo gradually disappears. Two laser wavelengths of light are used for more precise targeting of ink pigments. It is powered by a system that produces small, high-powered pulses for increased pigment-disrupting precision and effectiveness.
