Laser Tattoo Removal Overview

Laser tattoo removal is an innovative procedure that works with your immune system to naturally remove unwanted ink from your skin. In fact, from the very moment a needle embeds ink in your skin’s dermis layer, your immune system immediately sends bacteria eating cells called phagocytes to clean up the foreign ink particles. However, many of the ink particles are much larger than the phagocytes, making it difficult for your body to remove the ink. As you can see in the gif below, the black ink particles are much larger than the surrounding phagocyte cells. Although many of the ink particles are too large for your body to break down, your immune system continuously tries to remove the alien ink material. This explains why tattoos gradually lose color over time, but still remain permanently etched in your skin.

 

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

During a laser session, our Astanza Trinity laser directs ultra-quick pulses of light energy at the unwanted ink. The ink particles absorb the light energy, heat up, and instantly shatter into tiny fragmented particles. The broken ink fragments are small enough for your body’s phagocytes to consume and remove naturally.

Each session with the laser targets the shallowest layer of ink and works its way down until the deepest layer of ink has been treated. You will see your tattoo fade over the weeks following each treatment until your tattoo is completely removed. Virtually every patient needs multiple treatments in order to achieve sufficient results. Dr. Fowler and his team use a list of detailed factors to best determine the number of treatments your unique tattoo will need to achieve your desired outcome.
