How laser tattoo removal works
When you get a tattoo, the needles inject ink deep into the second layer of skin (the dermis, which is made up of connective tissue and is considered the “home” for blood vessels, sweat glands, and hair follicles), where the ink will become particles there. The body’s immune system perceives the ink particles as a threat, so it will fight off the particles. The smaller particles are flushed out by the immune system, which is why all tattoos fade with time, but there are larger particles that are too big for the immune system to take on.
Laser tattoo removal uses beams of light to break up the larger remaining ink particles into smaller parts that your immune system can remove.
What makes Dr. Ink Eraser’s laser tattoo removal the best in Columbus, GA
We use a combination of two different kinds of lasers: Nanosecond and Picosecond technology.
The Nanosecond lasers work to break up the larger particles of ink into even smaller pieces. Then, the Picosecond lasers will break up even smaller particles, making your immune system’s task a much simpler process. Picosecond lasers have 3 wavelengths, making it the ideal option for erasing inks of any colors while also ensuring a smooth removal process on all skin tones.
When paired together, these lasers work faster than they would on their own or other removal methods available in Columbus, GA.
Factors that affect tattoo removal
Immune system and metabolism
Because your metabolism and immune system slow down as you age, it takes fewer sessions to remove tattoos if you’re younger in age.
Lifestyle and health
If you have a compromised immune system, it may take more sessions to remove tattoos. If you smoke, vape, or tan, you are also more likely to need more sessions than if you don’t engage in those lifestyle choices.
Tattoo size and location
The size of the tattoo is one of the biggest factors in determining the length and number of laser removal sessions you’ll need.
The location can also play a factor. Some areas of the body have higher blood flow than others, and in those particular areas, tattoo removal will be a faster process.
Ink color and skin tone
For most Columbus, GA, tattoo removal services, skin tone and ink colors may be a factor when determining the number of laser tattoo removal sessions.
But thanks to our Picosecond technology’s 3 wavelengths, neither ink color nor skin tone are largely important factors for our laser tattoo removal service.
