How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Regretting your tattoo?
If you now regret having a tattoo and would like to remove it, or reduce it for a cover up, then help is at hand. Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective treatment that makes tattoos of all sizes and colours simply fade away.
These are the following factors that influence each client’s treatment:
- Quantity of ink used
- Depth of the ink placed in the skin
- Type of ink used (Indian ink, Thai ink etc)
- Location on the bodyAge of the tattoo
- Colours inks used
- Size of Tattoo

Why do you need more than 1 laser tip?
The output wavelengths allow all tattoo colours to be effectively treated, as well as pigmented lesions. Green, red, blue and black pigments can be removed effectively and quickly thanks to the high peak powers, the large spot sizes and the high repetition rates.
What does the laser do to the ink?
The ink in your tattoo gets broken down with a high-energy burst of light with lasers.
The length of time the light is pulsed for gives a very accurate way of delivering an exact amount of energy.
The high-energy light breaks up the ink particles into tiny fragments, which are taken up by the macrophage scavenger cells in the skin, and carried away by the body's waste removal systems.
Where does the ink go?
As the pigment is carried away by the immune system very slowly, the tattoo gradually disappears. Simple tattoos may dissolve after about three treatments, but usually a minimum of seven treatments are required. This can be more for very large and complex coloured tattoos.
