In recent years, tattoos have become more prevalent and vastly more colourful. Yet, even as tattoos are gaining in popularity, increasing numbers of people want to remove these embellishments.
Laser Tattoo Removal remains the most common and effective method for removing tattoos. It is also non-invasive as compared to skin-grafting. Laser tattoo removal works by directing concentrated laser energy to carefully break down tattoo inks into tiny fragments without damaging the surrounding skin, allowing the body to naturally dispose of the ink particles through the immune system. A few sessions each spaced at least 4 to 8 weeks apart will be required. The number of sessions will vary for different individuals as this depends on the size, placement, depth and colour of the tattoo. Black and blue colours respond particularly well, while other pigment colours can only be treated by selected lasers.
