For tattoo removal our laser works by breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo. The broken-down ink is then fought off by the immune system, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. All tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra. Certain tattoo pigments, such as yellows, greens, pastels and fluorescent inks are more challenging to treat than darker blacks and blues. No one can say for certain exactly how many sessions it may take to remove your tattoo. Because everyone’s immune system is different and everyone’s skin is different, all we can do is give an educated estimation. During your consultation we will look over the tattoo and get a better understanding of how many treatments it may take.
