How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal helps speed up the natural fading process of tattoos carried out by your immune system. All tattoos fade and lose color after many years. This is because your body’s immune system constantly eats away at the foreign ink particles in your skin. However, tattoos remain trapped in your skin due to the ink particles’ large size and deep placement.
Our Trinity laser emits ultra-quick pulses of light energy during a treatment onto the unwanted tattoo. The ink particles absorb the light energy, causing them to shatter into tiny, fragmented pieces that are small enough for your immune system to flush out naturally. Over a series of treatments, our laser will continue to break down the ink particles and work with your immune system to eliminate all of the ink safely and quickly from your skin.
For laser tattoo removal to be successful, tattoo pigment must absorb the laser’s light energy. Only upon absorption will an ink particle shatter and be flushed out by your immune system. Depending on the color, ink particles either absorb or reflect a specific wavelength of light energy. That’s why a laser needs to have more than one wavelength. Our Astanza Trinity laser supports three wavelengths to target and remove all colors.
Each laser tattoo removal treatment session takes anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes to complete, depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo. For virtually all tattoos, a series of treatments is needed to remove unwanted ink entirely. Our Astanza Trinity laser eliminates more ink in each session, decreasing the number of overall treatments required to achieve complete ink removal.
