How does laser tattoo removal work?
Your skin is the largest organ in the human body — and you only see a fraction of it. Skin is made up of two layers: the epidermis, the protective outermost layer that you can see, and the dermis, which is mostly connective tissue that houses blood vessels, sweat glands, and hair follicles.
The needles from a tattoo pierce deeper than the epidermis; it goes deep into the dermis and injects ink there. Your immune system attempts to remove the ink particles and successfully does get rid of the smaller particles of ink while the bigger ones stay (which is why tattoos fade over time).
We combine Nanosecond and Picosecond laser technology to break down the bigger ink particles (Nanosecond) and the smaller ink particles (Picosecond) to effectively remove the tattoo and help your immune system flush the particles out.
What makes Dr. Ink Eraser’s laser tattoo removal better than other options in Atlanta, GA?
Compared to other tattoo removal options in Atlanta, Dr. Ink Eraser’s combined use of Nanosecond and Picosecond laser tattoo removal technologies removes ink particles with a greater degree of success.
The Picosecond laser is great for removing colors that would be difficult for other lasers because it can use 3 different wavelengths. Some wavelengths are simply more effective when it comes to removing certain colors than others. Most lasers (like Nanoseconds) use only 1 wavelength, which may only be effective for a certain range of colors but are more effective at breaking down larger particles of ink.
Picosecond lasers are also more effective on a broader range of skin tones. Some skin tones are more difficult for traditional removal methods to properly remove and often result in scarring.
Even if the removal area does scar, it will not be nearly as visible as the scars traditional tattoo removal methods in Atlanta leave behind.
What factors affect tattoo removal?
Health and lifestyle
Chronic illnesses and unhealthy lifestyle choices, like smoking, vaping, or tanning, can reduce the body’s ability to remove ink. If your immune system is compromised due to a chronic illness or being sick, the tattoo removal process can take longer.
It’s more difficult to remove tattoos as you grow older, as your immune system and metabolism slows down. The younger you are for removal, the faster the process will be.
Tattoo location and size
The location of the tattoo and its size also play a role in how long the removal process takes. Some areas of the body have higher blood flow, and tattoos can be removed much faster in those areas than those where blood flow is slower.
Smaller tattoos will take less time to remove than larger tattoos. A larger tattoo can take more removal sessions than a smaller tattoo.
Different ink colors need different laser wavelengths in order to be removed. Some colors may need more treatments than other colors to be removed, too. Picosecond laser tattoo removal technology eliminates this concern due to its 3-wavelength capabilities.
Your skin tone impacts the number of treatments, too, as well as the overall effectiveness, particularly with traditional tattoo removal methods. This is not the case with Picosecond laser tattoo removal technology’s 3 wavelengths. Just as it can remove different colors easier, it can also “identify” skin tone so we can adjust the settings to ensure it will be most effective for removing tattoos on just about any skin tone.
