How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser tattoo removal is quite unique in that it works by targeting the tattoo and the area around it with different laser energy pulses at specific wavelengths. The ink within the skin absorbs the laser energy and breaks up, thus allowing the ink to be naturally absorbed and excreted by the body in a 6-8 week period. After this period elapses, another laser tattoo removal session is done. In most cases, it takes 5-15 sessions for the tattoo to fade completely and become completely invisible.
There are different types of lasers used in the removal of tattoos with these lasers differing from each other in respect to wavelengths, energy levels and pulse durations. Some lasers vary the spot size and wavelength of their light to remove complex tattoos.
What determines the effectiveness of laser tattoo removal?
There are a number of factors that determine the effectiveness of the use of laser technology to remove tattoos. These factors include pigments used, skin tone, the ability of your immune system to absorb and get rid of the tattoo ink and tattoo color.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
There are several factors that affect the cost of laser tattoo removal. The main factor is the number of sessions that are required for the complete removal of the tattoo. The other factor that has a great effect on the cost of tattoo removal is the tattoos size on your skin. The larger the size, the higher the cost of removing it.
