How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Unlike a laser pointer that produces a continuous beam of light, tattoo removal lasers produce pulses of light energy. Each pulse of energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink. As the tattoo ink particles absorb the energy, they heat up and then shatter into tiny fragments.

Then, over the weeks following treatment, the body’s immune system flushes the tattoo ink particles away from the location, lightening the appearance of the tattoo. Each laser treatment breaks down more and more of the tattoo ink until none remains.

Your individual treatment plan and results will vary. In general, this depends on the age of your tattoo, the depth of placement, the type of ink, and the quality of the tattoo itself. An older tattoo is already beginning to fade and may be easier to remove than a fresh tattoo.

A tattoo placed deeper in the skin can take longer to fade, and some ink types are more resistant than others during laser treatments. Finally, a poor-quality tattoo is typically easier to remove than a professional tattoo. In some cases, the size of your tattoo may also impact the length of your total treatment.

For most patients, 5-10 treatment sessions scheduled 6-8 weeks apart, giving your body time to remove the fragmented ink particles from your system between treatments. We offer pricing discounts for packages of 3, for larger packages schedule a consult to understand your requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

“Lasers work to remove tattoos by breaking up the larger ink particles into pieces small enough for white blood cells to absorb them. To break up an ink particle, you need to heat it to make it expand due to thermal expansion, but the zap has to be quick enough so that half of the particle remains cool. The opposing cool and hot forces then separate the ink particles into smaller pieces.

Once the lasers break the ink particles apart into small enough pieces, the white blood cells can absorb them for transportation to the liver and elimination.”

“Modern tattoo removal lasers are effective at removing most tattoos, but not all tattoos can be removed completely. Factors such as color, location, the density of the ink, and age can impact the overall success of the tattoo removal process.


Older tattoos are typically the best candidates for removal, as the ink particles weaken over time and are easier to break down. Black ink is typically easiest to remove, as it absorbs light more than other colors.

Skin type is also a factor when performing laser tattoo removal. Since darker skin types have more melanin, certain colors of ink are not able to be targeted. Black ink is safe to treat on all skin types; however extra precaution should be taken with those with more pigment in their skin to avoid possible damage to the skin.

We use a cool air system to minimize the pain and thermal damage.”

The length of treatments depend on a multiple factors with small areas and minimal factors being 10-15 minutes and larger and more complex tattoos up to 60 minutes

Laser tattoo removal looks different for everyone since each person and their tattoo is unique. Although it is not possible to predict the number of sessions required for complete removal, most patients generally need 6 – 8 sessions. Larger tattoos may take 10 treatments or more.

Six to eight week intervals are optimum allowing for the skin to process the treatment.
