The laser affects the tattoo with very short and strong laser pulses that penetrate deep into the skin, without injuring the top layers. These pulses are then absorbed by the pigments in the ink and as the laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves, it mechanically breaks up the ink into smaller particles. These are then naturally absorbed by the body’s own immune system.
The complete removal of tattoos can take between 3 and 10 sessions 6 weeks apart and depends heavily on the location of the tattoo, the age and the colour/type of inks used.
