Lasers remove the tattoo ink with the energy of light. A laser is a device which is designed to produce one or more specific wavelengths of light. Tattoo ink is removed by using this specific wavelength of light which passes through the skin, but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. Tattoo specific lasers provide maximum tattoo removal whicl leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. At The Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser (Medlite) and the Q-Switched Ruby laser (Sinon), are the lasers of choice for successful non scarring tattoo removal.
