When a tattoo is applied, ink pigment is embedded in the dermis, the deepest layer of skin. Your body’s natural immune system detects the ink as a foreign substance and sends white cells to try and remove it. The reason tattoos are considered permanent is because the pigment particles are too big to be removed by the white cells – so they remain trapped in the dermis.
Laser tattoo removal speeds up the fading of a tattoo by emitting light energy into your skin and breaking the ink particles into tiny fragments (Picture 2). These tinier fragments are small enough to be eliminated by the body’s white cells and are flushed away by your body’s immune system.
Following your treatment, you will see your tattoo gradually fade and lighten. This is your immune system naturally flushing out the shattered ink particles. After a series of treatments, nothing but clear, flawless, ink-free skin will be seen in the spot where your once tattoo previously was. Laser tattoo removal is the only procedure that can penetrate deep enough into the skin to destroy ink without harming the surrounding dermal tissue.
At Elimination Tattoo, we offer complete removal and partial removal for those wanting to remove just a portion of their tattoo. We can also prepare you for a cover-up tattoo by lightening the existing tattoo ink. By fading your existing tattoo, you eliminate the chance of the old tattoo coming through the new one after a few months. All Elimination Station clients are provided free consultations and full tattoo assessments. We understand that tattoo removal is a big decision, so we will answer any questions you have about laser tattoo removal to make sure you feel as comfortable and familiar with the procedure before going forward
