Tattoos, an ancient body decoration
Tattoo removal has been performed since the start of tattooing. But no matter why you want to remove your tattoos, non-invasive laser tattoo removal is far better than physical methods like dermabrasion, acid, and scrubbing the skin with salt.
Lasers and tattoo removal
Vedas introduces the all-new, safe, and painless treatment for removing tattoos and permanent makeup, our Ellman Multi-Platform Laser Platform. This laser targets the coloring of the tattoo ink without hurting the surrounding healthy skin.
Tattoos last a long time without breaking down naturally because of the ink particles’ large size. They are too big to remove by normal human growth and healing processes. Lasers break down ink particles in the tattoo while your immune system “fights off the ink.” This mimics natural fading by time or sun exposure. In each session, the laser fragments more ink particles.
The tattoo needs to absorb more laser light than the surrounding skin. A many-color tattoo may require different laser colors.
Darker blacks and blues can be easily removed. Some colors, like yellows and fluorescent inks, absorb light that the tattoo removal laser can’t touch, and pastel-color inks are highly-reflective. Unless the ink can absorb the laser light, the ink won’t break down, and the tattoo lingers on!
The laser must also deliver enough energy to break up the color pigment. Its bursts must be short to avoid burning surrounding skin. The treatment itself creates inflammation. As a result, your immune response removes the tattoo ink.
How long will it take?
Removing your tattoo takes several treatments, spaced at least seven weeks apart. Tattoos on the ankles, wrists, and hands usually take the most sessions. This allows your immune system to heal the affected area each time. Your immune response is also a key factor; a weak immune system will slow tattoo removal.
