Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal is performed using lasers that break down the ink particles in the
tattoo. The broken-down ink is then fought off by the immune system, mimicking the
natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. All tattoo pigments have specific
light absorption spectra.

Widely considered the gold standard treatment to remove a tattoo, laser tattoo removal requires repeat visits and is effective at removing a large range of the color spectrum. During the treatment process, the laser beam passes harmlessly through the skin, targeting only the ink resting in a liquid state within. While it is possible to see immediate results, in most cases the fading occurs gradually over the 7–8 week healing period between treatments.

Multiple treatments are recommended once every 8 weeks depending on colour and type of tattoo.
