Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Do you want to get rid of an existing tattoo?  If so, you’re not alone. Tattoo regret is very common, especially among older adults, and many of them are choosing laser tattoo removal.  Perhaps you’ve also decided to give it a try, but you’re not sure if laser tattoo removal really works. 

Does laser tattoo removal work

Yes, laser tattoo removal works! Lasers are now the standard option for removing tattoos, as they have proven to be very safe and effective. 

However, when it comes to laser tattoo removal, technology matters, as the picosecond lasers are considered the best tattoo removal lasers.  Picosecond technology is faster, safer, and more powerful than previous laser systems used to remove tattoos.

Enlighten for tattoo removal

Enlighten is a breakthrough laser that features both picosecond and nanosecond technology, making it the most efficient tattoo removal laser on the market.  Enlighten is safe for all skin types, and can remove virtually all tattoo ink colors.

Whereas older technologies can take up to 15 treatments to fade a tattoo, it can take less than half that number with Enlighten.  However, location, size, ink colors, and the age of the tattoo can all impact the number of sessions needed to get the desired results.

How laser tattoo removal works

The laser energy targets the ink particles in the skin.  The particles absorb the laser energy, causing them to break up into tiny particles.  These fragments are subsequently processed via the immune system, and removed from the body over the following weeks (learn more).
