Laser Tattoo Removal Overview

Laser tattoo removal helps transform the skin from the inside out. It is the only noninvasive method that can safely and effectively penetrate deep enough into the skin without causing any scarring or permanent damage. Today, the introduction of Q-switched Nd:YAG and ruby laser technology has made it possible to shatter ink in a matter of seconds, effectively reversing the permanency of unwanted tattoos.

 

Ink-Skin Interaction

Tattoo application involves using a needle to deposit ink particles into the dermis, the deepest layer of skin. Immediately upon embedment, your immune system detects the ink particles as foreign material and sends bacteria eating cells to dispose of them. Due to the large size and deep placement of the ink particles, your body is unable to remove them, leaving the ink particles permanently trapped in your skin. However, your immune system continuously eats away at the foreign material in hopes of completely removing it, which explains why tattoos gradually fade and lose color over time.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

During a treatment, our Astanza Trinity laser emits ultra-quick pulses of light energy onto your unwanted tattoo. The trapped ink particles absorb the light energy, heat up, and shatter into tiny fragments that are small enough for your body’s immune system to dispose of naturally.

Multiple treatments are needed in order to completely remove a tattoo. Larger, more pigmented tattoos will need more treatments than smaller, more faded tattoos. Over the weeks following each treatment, you will witness your tattoo fade more and more until no ink is visible in the skin.

Hudes Laser Aesthetica encourages all patients to drink plenty of water and exercise daily. Maintaining a healthy and strong immune system will help the natural fading process and promote faster fading.

Unlike other laser clinics, our Astanza Trinity can eliminate all tattoo ink colors, even blue and green pigments that are considered difficult to remove. Our Trinity is safe to use on all skin types and is designed to eliminate more ink in each session, meaning fewer overall treatments for you!
