Laser tattoo removal works on the principle of selective thermolysis where the targeted tattoo is exposed to the energy delivered by laser. This energy exposure results in selective destruction of the foreign pigment while ensuring minimum damage to the surrounding skin.
Lasers can be applied to remove all sorts of tattoos be it professional, amateur, cosmetic, medicinal, and traumatic tattoos. The different colors present in the tattoos may respond differently to laser tattoo removal, but they do get removed to quite some extent. Thus laser tattoo removal presents itself as a non-invasive and effective treatment for unwanted tattoos.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Tattoos are considered permanent, but in the past they have been removed via painful dermabrasion, surgery or skin grafts. Thanks to advancements in medical laser technology, tattoos can now be partially or completely removed with minimal scarring, less side effects and little downtime.
Laser tattoo removal utilizes strong laser pulses to penetrate deep into the skin. These wavelengths of light ore strong enough to attack the embedded indelible ink, yet gentle enough to not damage the surrounding cells. The in is destroyed and the body’s natural healing process removes the remnants.
