Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center in Duluth, GA (suburb of Atlanta) offers laser tattoo removal of all colors including green, which is often the most difficult color to remove. Laser Lights’ laser tattoo removal equipment is FDA approved and safe for all skin types. Most tattoos can be removed within a few treatments depending on the color of the tattoo. Laser tattoo removal treatments are typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and the number of treatments necessary is determined by the amount, type, color, and depth of tattoo ink.
Tattoos are meant to be permanent, so removing them is difficult. Few guarantee complete removal, but there are several methods Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center employs that have proven effective. The degree of remaining color variations or blemishes depends upon tattoo size, location, the tattoo removal patient’s ability to heal, and how/ when the tattoo was applied. For example, a tattoo applied by a more experienced artist may be easier to remove since the pigment was evenly injected in the same level of the skin. New tattoos may also be more difficult to remove than old ones because tattoos tend to gradually fade naturally over time. Accurate laser treatment plans can only be devised once a patient undergoes a cosmetic laser consultation.
Tattoos are permanent because an insoluble ink is injected into the dermis, or middle layer of the skin. This is why they remain visible and are not absorbed by the body. Laser tattoo removal uses wavelengths of light targeted toward the specific pigments in each tattoo’s ink which break the ink into tiny particles that the body can absorb. From there, the minuscule particles are disposed of through the body’s natural healing responses.
