Laser Tattoo Removal
Zap Away Unwanted Tattoos
Laser tattoo removal is a specialized procedure that employs high-power Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers to target and eliminate tattoo pigments. The laser emits specific wavelengths of light absorbed by the tattoo ink particles. This rapid absorption creates a photoacoustic effect, breaking down the ink into smaller fragments. Over time, the body’s immune system removes these fragments, gradually fading the tattoo. The choice of laser wavelength depends on the ink color: 1064 nm effectively treats darker inks, while 532 nm is suited for brighter colors.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Is Done
Laser tattoo removal is performed in a series of sessions. A trained technician directs the laser’s intense light pulses onto the tattooed area. You’ll wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser. The laser targets tattoo pigments, breaking them down into smaller fragments without harming the surrounding skin. You might feel a stinging sensation during the procedure, but it’s usually manageable. After each session, your body’s natural processes will gradually remove the fragmented ink, resulting in the fading of the tattoo over time.
