Laser is high intensity light of a particular wavelength in the infrared spectrum (invisible light).
Tattoo removal is done with help of a specific laser which emits two wavelengths which can selectively target tattoo ink particles while leaving surrounding skin unharmed.
Tattoo ink particles absorb laser energy, heat up and get shattered into smaller ink particles. The Ink particles are flushed away by the body thereby fading away after multiple sessions.
The Lasers used @INURSKN are the best in their league, FDA approved and absolutely safe.
A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area followed by a treatment with laser. The intensity and speed of treatment is adjusted based on the results and comfort of the patient. During the procedure one feels a pricking sensation. Post procedure redness and swelling may appear which settles down in a few days time. Topical and oral antibiotics may be prescribed to ensure no infection occurs.
The results of treatment vary based on the depth of the ink, the intensity of ink and colour of the ink. However as multiple sessions are done a general lightening of the tattoo keeps occurring.
Frequency of Treatment:
The doctor based on condition of the skin may recommend repeat treatments in a period to 2 to 3 weeks.
Yes. But is a long drawn process. Laser tattoo removal is the only way to truly eliminate tattoos, but it can be anywhere between 8 to 12 sessions to remove a tattoo spread over maybe a year.
"The laser used for tattoo removal selectively targets the pigment of tattoo ink, thereby destroying / decimating the ink into micro particles which are later on absorbed by the body and discharged through the lymphatic system of the body.
Sometime multiple lasers are used so as to have multiple wavelengths each affecting a set of colours in the tattoo."
Without Doubt. Lasers are the safest method for tattoo removal as the ink pigment is selectively affected without scarring or damaging the skin in any manner.
No it does not. As mentioned scaring can happen with a generic treatment like trying to bleach the skin or using any acidic solution for the same. Lasers are selective and do not affect the rest of the skin.
As a matter of fact only a dermatologist with the correct laser machine can remove tattoos. There are no other known mechanisms to successfully remove tattoos.
Yes, only safe and effective way.
