Laser tattoo removal

When you get a tattoo, the ink seeps into the lower layers of the skin. The laser breaks the ink into tiny fragments and makes the tattoo disappear. If your tattoo is coloured this can take some time because some colours are more difficult to remove. Green is yellow being two colours that are difficult to get rid of, whereas black, red and blue are easily removable. The number of laser tattoo removal sessions depends upon the size of your tattoo and the colour of the tattoo.

Laser tattoo removal is more effective compared to the other procedures available for tattoo removals like electro-cautery and surgical excision. Because of this, laser tattoo removal is accepted as a powerful and safe procedure to get rid of tattoos.

Laser hair removal is a famous and preferred procedure in the cosmetic market. Everybody wants permanent and quick results and therefore opt for laser treatment to avoid shaving and waxing. In the laser hair removal treatment, the laser light gets rid of the hair from the roots up, effectively suppressing hair growth in that particular area. Lasers are also used to resolve pigmentation issues and that’s why laser hair removal is now effective on darker skin tones.
