Had enough of that tattoo that seemed like a great idea at the time? Or maybe you want to fade your tattoo for a new piece. Our laser tattoo removal works on all colours. Tattoo removal using a laser is the gradual fading of the tattoo utilising multiple treatments over time. While tattoos were once considered permanent, it is now possible to remove them with laser treatment fully or partially for “cover-up”.
Tattoo removal is most commonly performed using lasers to break down the ink particles in the tattoo. The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create.
All tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra. A tattoo laser must be capable of emitting adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment to provide an effective treatment. Certain tattoo pigments, such as yellows, whites and fluorescent inks are more challenging to treat than blacks, purples greens, reds and blues.
