How Does it Work?
Your skin is made up of three layers:
- Epidermis (outer layer)
- Dermis (middle layer)
- Hypodermis (bottom layer)
When you received your tattoo, the tattoo artist injected the ink into the dermis. The ink stays in your dermis because the molecule is too large to be naturally removed by your lymphatic system.
The Nd:yag Q switched laser will send its energy through the epidermis (without harming it), with so much speed, energy and heat, it fragments the ink into tiny little pieces so that they are able to penetrate through the hypodermis. Once through the hypodermis, the body sees it as a foreign object and Macrophages, your large white blood cells encapsulate the ink and it is eliminated from the body by your lymphatic system .
The truly amazing results of laser tattoo removal (LTRT) have offered hope to patients seeking a safe and effective way of removing or fading their unwanted tattoos. Similar to any medical procedure, it's important to take a common sense approach when considering LTRT.
This process takes time and immediate results are not going to happen, it is an unrealistic goal. Your tattoo is going to take several LTRT to reach your goal. Due to many factors and because everyone is different it is important to have a consultation prior to beginning your LTRT.
FACT: The level of risk involved in laser tattoo removal is minimal. Laser tattoo removal is considered the safest method of tattoo removal you can receive. Scarring or burning is a highly unlikely result of a laser tattoo removal treatment as long as it takes place in a safe, professional environment, by a CERTIFIED specialist. The low level of risk associated with laser tattoo removal is the reasons it is considered to be the most effective and safest method of tattoo removal used today.
The healthier your immune system is, the better your results will be. Studies have shown that those who exercise regularly and drink large amounts of water will see a more positive result over those who smoke or consume other toxins.
