When you get a tattoo, the ink is lodged in the middle layer of the skin.
Your immune system naturally tries to remove the ink. 
It carries away the small particles of ink, while the large ones remain.

Laser tattoo removal works by applying concentrated energy to the ink particles. 
This breaks the large particles of ink into smaller ones, allowing your immune system to flush it out.
Each laser treatment works at a different depth in the skin, so multiple sessions (spaced 6-8 weeks apart) are needed to get to all the ink.

Factors That Affect Tattoo Removal

LIFESTYLE

An unhealthy lifestyle, smoking or vaping and direct sun exposure on the treatment area reduce your body’s ability to remove ink.

GENERAL HEALTH

Sickness and chronic health conditions are prioritized by your immune system, which can reduce the speed at which ink is removed.

AGE

As you age your metabolism and immune system slows down. A younger immune system will remove ink faster.

TATTOO LOCATION

Tattoos in high blood flow areas can be removed faster than those on extremities.

INK COLOR

An unhealthy lifestyle, smoking or vaping and direct sun exposure on the treatment area reduce your body’s ability to remove ink.

SKIN TONE

Your skin tone can impact laser removal, and may determine the laser settings your Technician uses
