How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal is the only clinically-proven method of removing a tattoo without causing scarring. For more than a decade, Q-switched lasers, have been designed to shatter ink in a tattoo. Your body natural excretes the ink through your lymphatic drainage system.

During a tattoo removal procedure, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed.

The tattoo ink particles absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles.
In the days and weeks following a laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade. Over a series of treatments, more and more of the ink shatters, leaving the skin ink free!
