Procedure of removing tattoo with lasers:
The high intensity parallel light through lasers emits energy into the skin. The ink of tattoo absorbs the light which causes the ink to break into small particles. The body’s lymphatic system carried off these small particles. As the black colored tattoo absorbs all laser wavelengths so it becomes easy to remove it. While, the other colors can be removed through selected wavelengths and so selected lasers are used respectively for each pigment. Only a trained professional expert can deeply evaluate the tattoo and then devise the further process accordingly. The treatment sessions depend on your age, size and color of the tattoo. The color of your skin and the depth of pigment also affect the process of removal.

Here is the general guideline of what you can expect during the treatment session:
- The doctor gives protective eye glasses to the patient.
- Before the procedure, the specialist may give topical anesthesia cream to the patient to numb the tattoo area.
- After that, the specialist tests a small portion of the skin in order to check the reaction to laser. This helps him to determine the appropriate laser energy for removal.
- Then, the doctor uses the device to pass pulses of laser energy through top layers of the skin which are then absorbed by the tattoo pigment. Small tattoos require few pulses while large tattoos require more pulses.
- Immediately after the procedure, ice packs should be used on treated area. The doctor gives antibiotic cream and bandage to cover the area. Make sure to cover the area with sunblock when going outside.
Number of treatments:
There are various factors that determine the number of treatments a patient should require to remove the tattoo. Firstly, the number of ink colors. Each ink color requires separate laser energy for absorption and removal, so more than one treatment sessions needed to treat every ink color. The second factor is the density of the ink placed on the skin. Another factor is the difference between skin and tattoo. For example, if the skin color is dark and tattoo is of light color then it becomes difficult to remove it. Some other factors are age of the patient and size of the tattoo.
Results of the procedure:
The tattoo removal through lasers gives excellent results. The patient feels better after getting this treatment. Several treatment sessions require achieving the desired results. With each session, the tattoo gradually diminishes. It may happen that your tattoo becomes darker after first session but it’s normal. Make sure to be patient and carefully follow the advice of the doctor to get the effective results.
