How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Many people have to face laser tattoo removal because they no longer want the tattoos that they have. At Wymore Laser & Anti-Aging Med in Orlando, we discuss tattoo removal and how it works. When you get a tattoo, the pigment goes into the layers of your skin, which means that the ink will stay there permanently. Tattoos are pierced through the top layer of the skin, which is called the epidermis, and the pigment rests around the dermis area of the skin. Therefore, the laser for tattoo removal has to protrude through these layers, so it reaches the ink. Many people find tattoo removal very successful because the science is easy to understand. However, people are still skeptical about the entire process and how many treatments they need to see the results that they are looking for. The truth is, everybody has somewhat different tattoos, which means that the removal process will vary amongst individuals. However, the way that the ink is broken down because of the laser is the same.

Details About Laser Tattoo Removal

You probably want to know more details about tattoo removal, and we want to make sure that you know all of them, so you feel fully prepared if you are thinking about removing your tattoo. The process of tattoo removal itself involves shattering the ink that is placed in the dermis. The ink will essentially shatter from the laser light, and the lymphatic system will eliminate it. This means that the body will cleanse itself after the ink is broken, and you will no longer be able to see the tattoo. Depending on how healthy the individual is, tattoo removals can take anywhere from six to ten treatments. This is because some tattoos are deeper and larger than others which means that you will have more or less ink than other people. Also, the reason that health matters is because your body goes through a healing process after the laser treatment. Therefore, if you have a strong immune system, your lymphatic system will heal the laser treatment much faster.

The Healing Process

After you get a laser treatment done, your body goes through a healing process because different layers of your skin will peel back until you can no longer see the tattoo. We recommend that you wait six weeks In between your treatments to ensure that your body is fully healed and ready to take on more. The treatments can be rather painful, and the process takes a long time in general, but it is very much worth it if you remain consistent and are dedicated to removing your tattoo.

Your skin will look clear and fully rejuvenated from the laser treatments as long as you take care of yourself during the healing process and stay consistent with your treatments.
