What is Laser Tattoo Removal and How Does it Work?
Laser Tattoo Removal is the process of using laser light to break up the ink in a tattoo so that your body will absorb it naturally over time. The laser wavelengths pass through the surface layers of the skin, where the light is absorbed by the tattooed pigments, which breaks them into smaller particles. Your body’s immune system then removes the fragmented tattoo particles. After several weeks you will see your tattoo fading away until eventually your tattoo looks as if it were never there.
At Look Great MD we use Q-switched laser technology to help you get rid of your unwanted tattoos. The Medlite C6 is best known as the industry’s gold standard laser for multi-colored tattoo removal. Unlike older methods, scarring and infections are rare. The procedure itself is relatively pain free and does not take much time depending on the size of the tattoo and other factors. It may take anywhere from 5 to 15 treatments (6 is average) in most cases to achieve optimal results with treating every 8 weeks. The number of treatments needed depends on the amount and type of ink used and how deeply it was injected.
