How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
The process of laser tattoo removal simply speeds up the natural fading of ink. What would take hundreds of years to fade only takes a handful of quick laser treatments.
Depending upon the tattoo pigment, significant fading is attainable with five to 10 treatments without the risk of scarring *. Sessions are spaced eight weeks apart to allow for maximal fading between treatments. The laser tattoo removal process is made possible by very powerful bursts of Nd:YAG light energy. The energy is delivered into the skin and absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing it to heat and shatter. The fragmented ink particles are then flushed away by the body’s natural immune processes.
There can be temporary skin lightening at the treatment site, but this resolves within a few months. Laser Tattoo Removal treatments are fast, and they create minimal discomfort. Most treatments can be performed without anesthesia or under only topical anesthesia. The YAG laser is also used for removal of brown, age, liver or sun spots, freckles, birthmarks and more. Usually only one treatment is required *. This procedure can be performed without or only topical anesthesia. Redness is produced, which lasts from one to two weeks.

How should I prepare for my tattoo removal treatment?It is important that the tattoo be accessible during treatment. Do not wear clothing that will rub the treatment area following treatment. Do not have plans to swim for three to four days following your treatment to prevent infection and promote proper healing and tattoo fading.
