There are many misconceptions on how laser tattoo removal works. The most common misconception is the belief that the tattoo ink is actually burned out of the skin. While all lasers generate a certain level of heat, this belief couldn’t be any further than the truth.
When faced with the question of how tattoos are removed, there are many factors that play a role in how quickly the tattoo will fade, but the fundamentals of how the ink is broken down and absorbed by the body remains the same.
In its most simplest form, laser tattoo removal works by:
1) Turning the liquid ink into a solid
2) Shattering the ink into tiny particles
3) Overtime the body’s natural lymphatic system digests the tiny ink particles and rids it of the body
Below is a simplistic visual of how laser tattoo removal works. If done correctly, laser tattoo removal will not burn or scar.
