Incredible Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
February 20, 2017
There was a time in the not too distant past when getting a tattoo was very much a permanent decision. It took a large sum of money to remove them and, for many, that wasn’t even an option. Nowadays, the benefits of laser tattoo removal are quite remarkable.
Multiple Laser Wavelengths
One of the key benefits of having a tattoo removed with laser technology is the advancement in laser wavelength technology. Each color used in a tattoo will often require a different laser wavelength to be successfully removed.
Different kinds of tattoo dyes also absorb more wavelengths of light than others. This makes it even more important to have laser instruments that can reach different wavelengths.
The wavelengths need to be either high or low enough to shatter the ink particles and cause them to burst in microscopic fragments. The microscopic fragments are then absorbed by the skin and appear to disappear altogether. Any type of dye and any color of dye can be removed with lasers.
Laser tattoo removal can be done on any kind of skin no matter how dark or how fair it is. The ability to adjust the laser to different wavelength setting allows for the removal of tattoos on all skin pigments.
Safety of Procedure
One of the best things about laser tattoo removal is that it is completely safe. As an added benefit, since it’s a nonsurgical procedure, you won’t have to worry about complications or downtime. We work closely with you to make sure the process is as comfortable and effective as possible.
