Laser Tattoo Removal

Do you have a tattoo that you want to remove? Whether it has become unappealing, no longer expresses you, or is connected with painful memories, there are myriad reasons why people opt for tattoo removal. In the past, a tattoo was removed through a surgical procedure that would often leave a scar, but modern laser tattoo removal is a procedure in which nearly any tattoo is removed completely, without surgery and without a scar.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works?

Tattoos are composed of the ink containing pigments that are placed into the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis. This layer of skin does not shed like the upper layers of your skin but remains in place, which is what makes tattoos permanent. So, to remove the tattoo, the cells that hold the ink have to be removed.

Laser tattoo removal, like laser hair removal, works on a principle known as selective photothermolysis. You know it’s a fact that if you wear a dark shirt, it absorbs more sunlight than if you wear a lighter color, and the same happens when we shine a laser on your skin. The dark ink absorbs more light than the surrounding skin and gets heated up until it is destroyed. The broken down ink is then separated from the skin.

How Many Treatments Do You Need?

There are many factors that determine how many treatments will be required to remove your tattoo. Firstly, the number, of colors of ink. Each ink color is absorbed and is destroyed by a different kind of light, requiring separate treatments to remove. The Second factor is how densely the ink has been placed into the skin. Finally, the contrast between your skin and the tattoo is a determining factor. On average, anywhere between three to six sittings are required.

Laser tattoo removal works on the principle of breaking down the colored pigment into smaller molecules so that the body's scavenger cells can further break them down and discard them. Different wavelengths address different colors. Darker the tattoo and more the contrast between the tattoo and skin color, better the result. Patients can expect a 50-80% reduction in tattoo appearance, and the result achieved is permanent.

Tattoo removal by Laser is painful and needs the application of local cream to numb the area. Many patients may even require local anesthetic injection as their pain tolerance is very low. The reason is that the laser beams have to travel deeper to break the pigment cells, unfortunately, nerve endings for pain are also in the same area.

Usually 6-10 sessions based on the colour and the depth of the tattoo may be required.

Tattoo removal is not very expensive, but as compared to money spent on getting a tattoo, it is costlier as many sessions are needed.

Results are gradual, and you can start seeing fading of the tattoo by the 3rd session if a US FDA laser with the right parameters is used. You may see reduced skin color in the area of the tattoo due to laser injury called as a 'Ghost Tattoo’.
