Lasers can be applied to remove all sorts of tattoos be it professional, amateur, or cosmetic tattoos. The different colors present in the tattoos may respond differently to laser tattoo removal, but they do get removed to quite some extent. Of course the results also depend on the type of laser used in the removal process. Thus laser tattoo removal presents itself as a non-invasive and effective treatment for unwanted tattoos.
Laser tattoo removal works on the principle of selective thermolysis where the targeted tattoo is exposed to the energy delivered by laser. This energy exposure results in selective destruction of the foreign pigment while ensuring minimum damage to the surrounding skin.
CAN ANYONE GET LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?
Anyone with a need to remove an undesired tattoo can opt for laser tattoo removal. It is not the person’s physical characteristics which decide the extent of removal but the colors used. Most tattoo colors can be eliminated or lightened more or less.
A FEW FACTS
Although, laser tattoo removal for sure is the best solution to the unwanted tattoo woes; it has got its challenges, which need to be kept in mind. Some of them are:
- Since results are color dependent total elimination is not possible, however you can be sure of dramatic lightening. Amateur black tattoos respond more quickly than professional and multicolored tattoos.
- To get maximum benefit multiple sessions are usually required.
- Doubly treated tattoos may require additional treatments.
