Do you understand how Laser tattoo removal works?
Tattoo ink is made up of mostly large and some small particles that are naturally too large to be broken down and disposed of by the body. When the ink is injected into the skin, your bodies immune system is alerted and sends blood cells to remove the alien Ink. Due to the large size of the ink particles, the blood cells are only able to scrape away small portions of the ink at a time, which explains why tattoos are considered permanent but fade and lose colour over a long period of time.
Laser tattoo removal helps speed up the natural fading process by breaking up the particles into much smaller pieces. During a treatment, our Q-Plus MT EVO laser emits super-fast pulses of light energy through the skin without harming any surrounding skin tissue. The ink absorbs the light energy and shatters into tiny particles that are small enough for your bodies immune system to break down naturally. Over the weeks following a treatment, your body will remove the shattered particles through the lymphatic system, causing your tattoo to fade.
This process is repeated a number of times to completely remove all of the unwanted ink in your skin. All clients need multiple treatments in order to completely remove their tattoos. Each treatment with the laser breaks up more and more ink, speeding up the fading process until the tattoo can no longer be seen. The number of treatments needed is unique to each person and their tattoo and can only be determined after assessing the tattoo in person.
