Lasers are used to penetrate the skin and to break up the tattoo ink below the surface. The body then absorbs the smaller particles and the tattoo fades.
When a person decides to decorate his or her body with almost ritual tattoos, it seems for the owner they are permanent. Although sooner or later people begin to feel a great desire to get rid of the tattoos: pictured beasts, flowers or emblems. But tattoos are not just plain pictures; they are deeply implanted in the dermal layers of a shoulder, stomach or some other rather intimate spot.
Ways of tattoo removal
Ways of removing tattoos is as old as the art of body painting itself. So what’s the difference between currently available methods and which one to choose?
Earlier methods of tattoo removal, such as chemical peeling, have certain disadvantages and do not always clear them completely. There is also a high probability of eventual scarring, atrophied areas and pigmentation disorders (hyper or hypo-pigmentation) on the treated spots. Therefore, laser tattoo removal has become the most popular way to take care of the problem.
