- Desire to erase or significantly fade existing tattoo
In laser tattoo removal, the short pulses or continuous wave of intense light produced by a medical laser pass through the top layers of skin. The laser energy selectively targets the pigment of the tattoo causing it to fragment into smaller particles that are then removed by your body’s natural cleansing system. This procedure will not damage the surrounding skin. Multiple treatments are usually necessary over several weeks to accommodate the skin’s natural healing process.
