Laser tattoo removal works by passing short pulses of laser wavelengths harmlessly through the top layers of skin and concentrated on certain areas of the tattoo. These wavelengths are selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment, and fragmented into smaller particles that are easily removed by the body’s natural lymphatic system overtime.

There’s been a great amount of research conducted to determine which wavelengths of light to use and how to deliver the laser’s optimal output to best remove tattoo ink of different colors. Here at Fallen Ink, we put this research to practice every day and operate the most advanced laser technology available for tattoo removal.

Below is a simplistic visual of how laser tattoo removal works.
