What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?
We all know that tattoos are more popular than ever. The bad news is that lots of people regret their tattoos for a variety of reasons. The good news is that laser tattoo removal is becoming a more acceptable form of erasing past mistakes.
There are several reasons why people want to remove their tattoos, but mostly because of indiscretion of youth:
Guys intending to join the military would want to remove their tattoos because any tattoo or brand located anywhere on the head or face are prohibited by the U.S. Army (NOTE: the Army may have relaxed this restriction somewhat to bolster recruitment. Check with your recruiter for more details.).
Women may want to remove the tattoo on their ankle or leg so they can wear nylons in the workplace.
Or there is nothing like showing up for an job interview looking like a member of a gang and wondering you are never getting any call backs!
Lasers are the most popular method of tattoo removal these days. Laser tattoo removal has generally better results, less pain and less chances of scarring. But that is NO guarantee everything will work out perfectly. As always, KNOW YOUR RISKS!
I think the easiest way to explain how the laser tattoo removal works is this; when you get tattooed, the ink particles stays in the skin because it is too big for your tissue to remove. What the laser does is emit short, but powerful pulses of light that break the ink pigment into tiny particles, which are more easily removed by the body’s immune system during the weeks and months following laser treatment.
The number of laser treatments to remove the unwanted tattoo varies depends on the type of ink used, how deep the ink was injected and the location of the tattoo. Also, keep in mind that the professional tattoos are much harder to remove than the “street” tattoos. That is because the professionals use better quality ink and tattoo equipment to insure and minimize fading of the tattoo.
The color of the ink is a big factor in determining how many laser treatments you will need to remove the tattoo. Black and blue tattoos are the easiest to remove while the green and yellow pigments are the hardest.

Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work, and is it Dangerous?
The short answer – yes! A special laser called a Q-Switched laser provides outstanding results to significantly lighten or remove most tattoo inks. The laser tattoo removal treatment is safe and effective and does not affect the surrounding skin. It is a non-invasive solution to having tattoos removed surgically.
Quite often people regret getting a tattoo and even find it embarrassing as their life changes. As the old saying goes “The indescretions of youth are the regrets of maturity” – anonymous. Laser tattoo removal treatment uses pulses of light from the laser that are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body’s macrophages remove the treated pigmented areas. The Q-Switched laser can effectively treat dark tattoo inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos) and blue. You should expect to receive several treatments to achieve expected results.
