Tattoo Removal-Does it work?

Do you have a tattoo that no longer fits your life and you'd like to do away with it! Well, tattoo removal is nothing new, but the methods and options available today have greatly advanced. As long as you have the motivation to do it, tattoo removal or fading is very possible today.

How successful will you be in removing that unwanted tattoo completely, well it depends. The factors that determine if you will be left with scarring or color remaining in the skin include how experienced the tattoo artist was, and how evenly the color was applied within one layer of skin. Another important consideration is the length of time you've had the tattoo, as the longer its on the skin, the more difficult tattoo removal becomes. Also, the location of the tattoo as well as the overall size are factors as well.

  1. Tattoo removal Laser is most commonly performed using lasers that react with the ink in the tattoo, and break it down. The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. All tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra. A tattoo removal laser must be capable of emitting adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment in order to provide an effective treatment. Certain tattoo pigments, such as yellows, greens and fluorescent inks are more challenging to treat than the darker blacks and blues. These pigments are more challenging to treat because they have absorption spectra that fall outside or on the edge of the emission spectra available in the respective tattoo removal laser.
