At the Electrolysis & Laser Clinic – Laser tattoo removal provides a solution for all.
For some, tattoos represent an impulsive decision that they later regret. For others, tattoos from their youth are simply no longer relevant to their lives or who they are today.
The Laser energy penetrates through the skin causing the ink particles of the tattoo to shatter, which is then absorbed and disposed of by the body’s own immune system.
Tattoos are permanent because the ink particles placed into the skin are too large for the body’s white blood cells to remove. Lasers work by breaking these particles into tiny pieces, allowing for the body to remove them via its natural filtering system.
The size and location of the tattoo, the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin will affect the clearance rate & how many treatments are required.
An average of 3-8 treatments is required for complete tattoo removal. Fewer treatments are needed for lightening & modification of a tattoo. Each treatment is performed four to six weeks apart, allowing enough time for the body to remove and dispose of as much tattoo ink as possible.
