How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser tattoo removal seems like a miracle. How can a laser removal a permanent tattoo?
The technology that has been developed, especially with Q-Switched lasers, allows tattoo removal clinics to effectively and safely remove tattoos at an affordable price.
Highly effective Q-Switched lasers do the work
In the most simple terms, here is how q-switched lasers work to remove tattoos.
The ink underneath your skin (dermis) is in a semi-solid state. We know it’s weird to think about, but the ink has some viscosity in order to move with your body. It’s not completely solid.
Also, think about the ink underneath your skin as a huge boulder.
This analogy will make sense in a minute.
Your tattoo is removed by the laser breaking down the boulder into smaller pieces.
Over time, the large boulder will be broken down into rocks, then pebbles, and then dust.
Once the ink particles are small enough, your body can flush them out.
This sounds like a painful process, but it’s really not!

Tattoo removal creams… Can I use them?
