Laser pigmentation and laser removal is a safe and easy way to remove pigments and tattoos. Laser light is calibrated to direct an intense beam of light at the tattoo. The light is calibrated by the laser to be a certain wavelength so that the pigment molecules absorb the laser energy and burst into small fragments. The body’s lymphatic system will then carry away the pigment fragments, which will then be excreted from the body.
Each laser treatment destroys and removes the pigment closest to the skin surface. That top layer may take approximately four weeks to be absorbed before the deeper tattoo pigment can be treated. So, laser tattoo removal is done one layer at a time.
DisclaimerEvery patient is a unique individual and every treatment has unique aspects. Therefore, no two cosmetic procedures will get the exact same results — even if patients are similar and if the procedures are performed by the same doctor.
Before undergoing a cosmetic procedure, please be sure to have an individual one-on-one consultation with a qualified doctor.
