Lasers are the most common method of tattoo removal performed today. Laser treatments work by targeting the ink particles in the skin with highly concentrated light waves that heat up the ink particles and cause them to fragment into smaller particles that are able to be cleared away by the body's immune system.
Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected laser wavelengths based upon the pigment color.
Pulses of intense light are passed through the top layers of your skin that will be absorbed by the tattoo pigment only. Smaller tattoos will require fewer pulses while larger ones will need more to remove them. In either case, to completely get rid of a tattoo, it will take several treatments. After each visit, your tattoo should become progressively lighter.
It releases energy in a single, powerful pulse. It can remove tattoos completely without leaving any scars. Effectively treats dark tattoo inks, specifically black, blue and green. Only Q-switched lasers are able to produce sufficient energy or power to remove dark and bright tattoos without unattractive side effects like scarring. Q-switched laser pulses last mere nanoseconds providing high levels of energy for quality ink shattering.
Complete removal of a tattoo is usually not accomplished in one laser treatment session. Laser tattoo removal typically requires more than one treatment to reduce the size of the ink particles Depending on the tattoo design, size and color it may take 1-10 laser sessions to remove the ink.
Wait for at least one day depending on the size of the tattoo. Smaller tattoos need less downtime because there is less ink. A really small tattoo may need no downtime at all.
The tattooed skin is excised.
Skin from different part of the body is taken and grafted on to the affected area.
