How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

If you're considering laser tattoo removal, you may be wondering how the process actually works. At its simplest, laser tattoo removal uses short pulses of focused laser light to break up the ink found in tattoos. However, there's a bit more to it than that. Keep reading to learn more about how laser tattoo removal works and what you can expect during the treatment process.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal works by delivering short pulses of focused laser light into the tattoo. The light energy from the laser causes the tattoo ink to break up into smaller pieces. Over time, these pieces are slowly absorbed by the body and the tattoo fades away.

Laser tattoo removal can be performed on all skin types and most tattoos. However, certain tattoos may be more difficult to remove than others. For example, older tattoos tend to be easier to remove because the ink is often not as deep in the skin as it is with newer tattoos. Additionally, black and other dark-colored inks are typically easiest to remove because they absorb more laser light than lighter colors.

What to Expect During Treatment

Laser tattoo removal treatments are usually performed in a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart. This allows your body time to absorb the broken-up ink particles before additional treatments are performed. Each session lasts for only a few minutes, although this will depend on the size and location of your tattoo. Following treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling, but this usually goes away within a few days.

Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted tattoos. The number of treatments you'll need depends on the size and colors of your tattoo, as well as your skin type. During each treatment, you'll feel a brief pulse of heat as the laser passes over your skin. Most people tolerate laser tattoo removal fairly well, though some may experience bruising, swelling, or blistering afterward. These side effects are usually temporary and can be treated with over-the-counter medications.
