How Does the Laser Break Up The Tattoo Ink?

Two key processes break up the ink: (i) the pigment in your tattoo will absorb the energy from the laser and shatter into smaller pieces, and (2) the incredibly fast pulse of energy from the laser (at just 6 billionths of a second!) has a shockwave-like effect that assists the ink breaking up. As a result, the ink acts like sugar cube breaking apart into smaller granules.

How Does The Body Remove The Shattered Ink?

Once the ink is broken down by the tattoo removal laser, the body will respond by moving fluid to the area to help flush away the ink.

How Many Sessions Will I Need To Remove My Tattoo?

The number of sessions needed to remove a tattoo depends on three factors: the age of the tattoo, the color of the ink, and the density of the ink.
