How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser or “light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation” has proven to be useful for medical practices, tattoo removal being one of the best. Pulses of high-intensity laser lights work on removing your tattoo by breaking up the ink particles. Your immune system’s white blood cells fight off the ink particles, which results in natural fading. Technological advancements introduce new laser devices that can remove tattoos efficiently. The Quanta Laser enables tattoo removal of a variety of ink colors such as black, red, orange, yellow, blue, purple, green, sky blue, and dark blue.

What Should I Expect During The Procedure?

  • For your protection, you will be given an eye shield.
  • If it was not completed during the consultation, a professional technician will perform a skin test first to check your skin’s reaction to the laser. This will determine the right treatment for you.
  • It is not necessary to use anesthesia, but you can use a topical anesthesia cream if your tattoo is located on a sensitive area of the body.
  • Next, the technician will treat the tattooed part of your body by using a laser that emits intense light beams and will only absorb the pigmented part of your skin.
  • Sometimes, it takes several treatment sessions to remove the tattoo entirely. You will notice that it gets lighter and lighter after every session.

Compared to other procedures, laser tattoo removal has minimal side effects. With excision and dermabrasion amongst others, there’s a high risk of scarring after your treatments.

Possible Side Effects

  • We mentioned that dark colors especially black are easier to treat because they respond well with the lasers. This means other colors may remain or you will need more treatment sessions
  • There is a chance that your skin will either get hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation. This means the treated part could be lighter or darker than the rest of your body.

When choosing laser tattoo as your preferred method, you should consider where and how to get it. If your technician performs the treatment properly, you can expect these results:
