LASER TATTOO REMOVALThe best method for tattoo removal is laser treatment. The type of laser used for tattoo removal is effective in skin blemishes and pigmentation problems. The laser beams penetrate the skin to reach the colored tattoo pigments without harming the epidermis. The tattoo pigments absorb the laser beams, converting them to sound and light waves. Then, these waves cause the pigments to break up into smaller parts. The body’s own immune system is able to more easily absorb and remove the tattoo pigments. The number of sessions needed to remove the tattoo completely depends on the type and amount of the ink.

There is no season limitation for laser tattoo removal. However, it is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Patients can temporarily experience mild swelling and scarring as well as redness. Though laser tattoo removal causes mild pain, there are interpersonal variations. Anesthetic creams can be used and cold air can be blown on the target area during the procedure to minimize the pain. Laser tattoo removal does not cause any permanent blemish or scar.
