After long consideration we decided to get a tattoo removal laser. The main reason for this is the bad quality of some tattoos by unprofessional scratchers, but also to give the customers an additional possibility if they want to remove or cover their tattoo . For this purpose we use the newest generation of YAG Q-Switched laser . How does it work?: Lasers work by producing short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be absorbed only by the tattoo pigment. This laser energy causes the tattoo pigment to explode into smaller particles that are then removed by the by macrophages and the body's lymphatic system. Each color has a different wavelength and needs therefore a different laser-light to best remove the tattoo ink. The laser selectively targets the pigment of the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin or the natural skin pigmentation. Can all Tattoos be removed?: No! Not every tattoo pigment can be completely removed ,the laser works best on Black, Brown, Blue ,and Red colors ,yellow and white are very difficult. But most colors can be lightened to a point that allows easy covering with a better tattoo. How long does it take! The time it takes to remove a tattoo depends on a lot of factors, the size , the placement ,the pigments used, the depth of the tattoo and the bodies immune system. A small self made tattoo will only need 3 to 4 sessions , but a professional tat could need up to 12 or more sessions. The tattoo ink needs to be removed in layers if you go to deep the first time you will damage the skin to much and create scar tissue. So it is important to be patient!!! This procedure is relatively painless compared to the tattoo process. BEWARE! TATTOOING SHOULD STILL BE CONSIDERED PERMANENT AND YOU SHOULD KEEP THAT IN MIND BEFORE YOU GET YOUR BODY MARKED FOR LIFE !
