How it works. Nd Yag laser can safely and effectively remove tattoos and permanent make up. Tattoo ink particles are too large for the body’s immune system to remove naturally because when tattoo pigment is injected into the lower layers of the skin (dermis) it becomes locked away by a scar tissue. The laser produces very short bursts of high energy laser light. The light is absorbed by the large ink particles, generating heat that shatters the tattoo pigment into minute particles which the body is able to remove. Because the tattoo ink selectively absorbs the laser energy, the surrounding skin doesn’t overheat and there is no lasting damage.
Laser Tattoo Removal
The initial consulation will involve:
We’ll run through your past and current medical history.
We will discuss how effective it will be on your tattoo. In principle the laser can remove all kind of tattoos. Since all tattoos are not the same in terms of colour, depth of ink deposition as well as their chemical composition some may respond differently. Black, red dark orange and dark blue tattoos will typically respond better to treatment with laser. However brown, purple, green, light orange, neon and light blue colours are harder to remove and will require more sessions and we don't want to give you false expectations on the outcome of your treatment.
Consulations are free.
