HOW DOES TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?

Tattoo removal was done by various methods in the past, however in modern day medical practice, it is done by using lasers. By focusing a safe high intensity laser beam with a specific wavelength (1024 nm), which passes harmlessly through the superficial layers of the skin,  tattoo pigments under the skin are targeted and broken down into smaller particles over a few sessions. These tiny ink particles are then carried away and disposed of by the body’s own clearing mechanisms safely (lymphatics).

In some cases mild pigmentation, shadowing or scarring may be visible, but fades over time. However, no major risk or complication is there.
