The Premier Alternative to Traditional Laser Tattoo Removal
What makes tattoos so difficult to remove?
Ink is injected into the dermis, below the skin, where it’s harder to remove.
Ink Particle Size:
The bigger the ink particle size, the harder it is to remove a tattoo. Traditional laser tattoo removal can be used to break up ink particles making them easier for the body to carry away, but sometimes the remaining ink particles are still too large, even after multiple laser treatments.
While blues and blacks are easy to treat, other colors such as reds and yellows can be
difficult to remove.
With most lasers, darker skin tones are harder to treat because too much energy can be absorbed into the skin rather than the targeted ink particles. Not only does this weaken the results, it also increases the risk of injury.
Limitations of Traditional Laser Tattoo Removal**
• Limited treatment of tattoo colors and types
• Inability to effectively break up ink particles
• Discomfort during treatments
• Certain risks, particularly with darker skin tones
