All About Laser Tattoo Removal
A Tattoo is a type of body modification wherein a design, character, symbol or emblem is marked on the skin. This body modification is made from an indelible or temporary ink, dye or pigment that is inserted into the dermis layer of the skin.
In the United States, nearly 30% of the population have tattoos. 25% of these individuals regret or outgrow their tattoo. Before the development of laser technology, tattoos are removed through dermabrasion, Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) procedure, cryosurgery, and excision.

Laser Tattoo Removal is the non-invasive and pain-free removal of tattoo pigments. This type of tattoo removal is considered the standard modality of removing a tattoo.
This procedure uses high-intensity light energy that breaks up the ink, dye or pigment used for the tattoo. Depending on the tattoo’s location, minimal discomfort may be expected. However, the procedure itself is safe and pain-free. In some cases, topical anesthesia may be applied in advanced.
What is the Procedure for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal procedures differ for each individual. Age, size, color, and depth of the tattoo are the factors that may be considered in evaluating the skin condition for this treatment. We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your tattoo and skin condition. After which, we will recommend the most ideal laser tattoo procedure specific to your condition.
