What is laser tattoo removal?
According to some estimates, up to half of the people who have decided to tattoo during life will change their minds and wish to remove the tattoo. Laser treatment does not damage the skin and leaves no scars, breaking the ink particles inside the skin. So broken particles painted through the lymphatic system are absorbed and removed from the body.
The best candidates for laser tattoo removal are people of lighter skin color, since there is a danger of skin change in the darker skin after treatment, so-called. dyschromias. In these cases, a greater number of treatments will be required to remove the tattoo without traces on the skin.
In addition, it should be noted that the success of the procedure in many respects depends on the color of the tattoo itself and the manner in which it is produced. As a rule, the most difficult is removing new tattoos, untiring tattoos and tattoos in lighter green or blue and turquoise colors. Black and red tattoos are the easiest to remove, and tattoos in darker shades.
In light of green, light blue or turquoise colors, sometimes more treatments are needed to achieve the desired effect.
