Permanent unwanted tattoos are now a thing of the past! Love It or Lose It provides safe and effective removal of unwanted ink with advanced laser tattoo removal. So how exactly do lasers work to remove ink from your skin? Before understanding how tattoos are removed, it helps to know how they are applied.
Tattoo application involves embedding ink particles deep into your skin’s dermis, the deepest layer of skin. Once inserted, your body recognizes that the ink particles are foreign and tries to remove them. Due to their large size and deep placement, your body’s immune system cannot remove the ink particles, so they remain permanently trapped in your skin.
Laser tattoo removal helps your body eliminate ink particles by breaking them down into small fragments. During a treatment session, our Astanza Duality laser will emit wavelengths of light energy onto the unwanted ink to be selectively absorbed by the ink pigments. The absorption of light energy causes the ink pigments to shatter into tiny fragments that your body can flush out naturally over time.
Over the weeks following each treatment, you will witness your tattoo fade more until all that’s visible is clear, ink-free skin. The rate at which your tattoo fades depends on various factors, the most important being your health. Since your body’s immune system does most of the work, flushing out ink from your skin is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patients with weaker immune systems have been more likely to experience results at a slower pace.
