How Tattoo Removal Works
Colorado Laser Treatments Uses The Safest, Most Effective Equipment
Tattoo inks are held in the in the sub-epidermis level called the dermis.
The inks are suspended in the dermis at a level shallow enough (usually 3mm) to be visible through your epidermis so your tattoo can be seen. When laser light of the appropriate frequency reaches the dermis and hits the ink, the tattoo ink is superheated to the point of becoming a solid and shattered into extremely small particles.
The particles are released from the dermis and are then absorbed by your immune system via the lymph nodes. Laser tattoo removal is the only tattoo removal method that can produce this result. All other methods involve dermabrasion (sandpaper), excision- literally cutting the tattoo off, ineffective creams or drilling holes into your skin!
Laser tattoo removal is the most effective and comfortable method of removing the ink you want gone!
