Laser is an effective method for getting rid of unwanted tattoos. There are a number of factors which will influence the treatment, for example the colors of the ink, the type of lasers available to your treating physician, and the size of the tattoo. Each tattoo is unique and each patient is also unique.

Amateur tattoos, which often fade on their own, are usually much easier to remove.

Multicolored professional tattoos with red, blue, yellow and other colors may require numerous treatment sessions before being totally erased. Black inks tend to come out quite easily, while green and white can be troublesome and require multiple wavelengths to be removed.

The removal of tattoos involves laser light being absorbed by the skin cells surrounding the ink of the tattoo so the body may remove the ink. If you are interested in removing a tattoo, the best thing to do is to consult with a physician with a great deal of experience in the process.
