Tattoos are simply a collection of ink droplets injected into the skin. They are visible because the ink droplets are too big to pass through the skin and so are locked in place by the body.
Laser Tattoo Removal utilises the unique physics of laser technology to send extremely high powered, ultra short pulses of laser light into the skin. These laser pulses are absorbed by the ink particles and are shattered because of the speed and power levels involved.
These smaller shattered particles are now small enough to pass through the skin and are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system.
Thus the tattoo fades as more and more shattered ink particles are removed from the skin at each Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment.
