With laser technology it’s possible to remove tattoos. This goes for black and blue ink, but also any other color which can be used in tattoos. The number of treatments varies between 4 to 6 treatments, although the colors used in the tattoo are also an indication for how many treatments are needed. The darker the ink, the more contrast with the skin tone, which means the treatment will be more effective. Colors that are closer to the skin tone, like yellow & orange, have less contrast to the skin tone and need more treatments.
Tattoo removal is performed with the Q-switched ND:YAG laser. This laser is effective in destroying the ink of the tattoo and protective to the skin’s pigment. This laser is also friendly in use, which makes it possible to treat a large surface in a short period of time.
