Due to the large size and deep location of the ink particles, your body’s immune system is unable to remove them, causing them to remain trapped in the dermis. Although your immune system is unable to remove the ink particles on its own, it continuously eats away at the particles over time. This explains why tattoos are permanent but fade and lose color over time.
The key to laser tattoo removal is the absorption of light energy. Different colored inks absorb and reflect different wavelengths of light energy. The correct wavelength must be used in order to achieve absorption and successful optimal shattering. If the incorrect wavelength is used, the ink pigment will reflect the light energy, not shatter, and remain trapped in your skin. The most resistant ink pigments are bright blue, vibrant green, and stubborn black. Only our Trinity’s 694 nm ruby wavelength is capable of effectively removing these difficult ink pigments.
Over a series of treatments, Our Trinity laser will continue to assist your immune system by shattering the large ink particles in your skin. Your tattoo will fade more and more following each treatment until no ink is visible in your skin. Laser tattoo removal at Lighten Up Laser Clinic is the most effective, noninvasive method for getting rid of unwanted ink. Call our Northeast Houston office today to schedule your free consultation!
