Do you know the feeling when you desire to have a nice new tattoo – but the old one is still sitting there on your skin…occupying the place of the fresh new one?… Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. And the good news is, removing old tattoos has never been so easy. Nowadays there are professional lasers using advanced technology – ND YAG Laser is one of the most popular ones, and we wholeheartedly recommend it.
Let’s start from the basics and discover how laser removal work, shall we?
We are living different times. Previously when one decided to get inked, it was indeed a permanent decision – good or bad, you decide. However with the development of technology, tattoo removal has become just a reach away. The process itself is done by both tattoo artists and doctors. Lasers work as follows: they emit a wavelength of high energy light, which is focused on a certain skin condition (or tattoo) and the created heat will destroy the cells. These short pulses of intense light pass harmlessly through the top skin layers and gets absorbed by tattoo pigments. These tattoo pigments will basically fragment into small particles which will be removed by the body’s immune system.
What makes ND YAG Laser special?
- It is capable to reach deeper layers of the skin which other lasers cannot.
- There is a wide range of colours that can be successfully removed with the ND YAG Laser: black, grey, dark blue, yellow, red and orange colours.
