What is laser tattoo removal? Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser technology to break down the ink particles in tattoos. This then allows your body to naturally flush the ink out.

Tattoos are meant to be permanent. So when you first get a tattoo, the ink is placed into the deeper layers of the skin. The ink particles are too large for the body to break down. Which is why you need the help of a laser machine. At Goodbye Tattoos, we use the Quanta Q Plus C machine, which is a Q-Switched laser.

The laser machine, emits a high-energy beam of light that is directed at your tattoo. The energy from the laser breaks the tattoo pigment into tiny little pieces. Now your body gets to work. Your body’s immune system will work to flush out the tiny little ink particles. The laser targets the ink particles specifically, which means that the surrounding skin is not damaged.

Number of treatments for laser tattoo removal

The number of laser tattoo remova treatments required depends on a number of variables: Tattoo colour, skin tone, layering of tattoos, tattoo location on the body, health and lifestyle, amount of ink/ink depth, age of tattoo. And whether it professional or amateur. Black tattoos are typically the easiest to remove, while coloured tattoos can be more difficult.

On average, it will take between 6-10 treatments to completely remove a tattoo. Some people may need more. Some may need less. It’s important to understand that every tattoo is different. And so is every individual. Which is why everyone sees different results.

Speed up the laser tattoo removal process

There are ways in which you can speed up the tattoo removal process. Drinking plenty of water. Moderate exercise. Eating healthy. Anything you can do to boost your immune system is going to help.

It’s important that you choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to perform laser tattoo removal. This can help ensure the safety of the procedure and reduce the risk of complications. Also, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the technician, to help ensure the best possible outcome. There are also some great tips to help prepare for laser tattoo removal.
