How Tattoo Removal Works



by: Bernard Raskin

In most cases tattoo removal is done by using the Yag laser. Over time your body naturally breaks down the particles in tattoos. This is what causes tattoos to fade over time. The yag laser accelerates the process for the tattoo. The laser breaks up the particles in a tattoo. The smaller particles are then naturally removed by the body. Each time the tattoo is lasered more and more particles are broken apart and body will continue to removal the smaller particles.

Not all tattoos are created equal. Some will come out easier than others will. Tattoos that that were done using low quality ink will usually be removed easier. A simple rule of thumb to keep in mind is that the darker the tattoo is the easier it will be to be removed. Colors such as red and pink will often time remain in the skin and cannot be removed. Black or dark color tattoos are most likely to be removed by the Yag Laser. It is important remember that everyone’s skin is different. A black tattoo on one person might come out after just 4 or 5 treatments. The same tattoo on someone else might take 8 or 10 treatments. It all depends on how well that person’s skin washes out the broken particles.

Tattoo removal should only be done by a trained professional, which is usually a dermatologist.
