While many methods for removing unwanted ink exist, only laser tattoo removal can deliver lasting, superior results without harming the surrounding skin tissue. Other methods like salabrasion, dermabrasion, or acid injections are harmful, painful, and often result in scarring. Tattoo creams that claim to remove tattoos to completion are only kidding themselves! Laser tattoo removal is the only noninvasive procedure that can penetrate deep into the skin where the ink lies.
When tattoo ink is applied to the skin, a needle embeds ink pigment into the skin’s dermis, the deepest layer of skin. Your body’s immune system is immediately alerted and continuously sends blood cells to dispose of the alient ink pigment. Due to the large size of the ink particles, your blood cells are only able to scrape away very tiny fragments at a time. This explains why tattoos are technically permanent but fade and lose color over time.
Laser tattoo removal helps speed up the natural fading process by breaking up the large, trapped ink particles into tiny fragments that are easier for your body’s immune system to consume. During a treatment session, our Astanza Duality laser emits wavelengths of light energy onto the unwanted ink. The ink particles in your tattoo absorb the light energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller fragments. Over the weeks following your treatment, your immune system will consume the shattered particles and dispose of them naturally through your lymphatic system.
Each session with the laser targets the shallowest layer of ink and works its way down, shattering more ink with each session until no ink is visible in the skin. The number of treatments needed is dependent on a variety of factors, however, almost all patients require multiple sessions to achieve their desired look.
