How laser tattoo removal works

You may have gotten a tattoo years ago and it’s faded, blurred or not your style anymore. Or maybe you have immense regret from a spur-of-the-moment decision to get inked. Sometimes, people have an allergic reaction to the tattoo. No matter your reason for wanting to remove a tattoo, today’s tattoo removal technology is a safe, effective way to remove an old tattoo or bad decision. Read on to learn more about tattoo removal and how it works.

The art of tattooing involves ink and an electronically driven needle or needles. The needles puncture through the outer later of the skin, called the epidermis, depositing the ink within the dermis layer. This is what makes a tattoo permanent.

Tattoo removal is done as an outpatient procedure. Laser tattoo removal is the fastest, safest and most effective way to remove tattoos. It’s the least likely to damage your skin as compared with other removal treatments.

Amara uses FDA-regulated laser tattoo removal technology, which works in fewer treatments, on all ink colors and on all skin types. This laser technology produces short pulses of light that penetrates the upper layers of skin to reach the ink. As the ink absorbs the light, it disintegrates into smaller particles into the skin’s pigment. You’ll begin to see your tattoo fade with each treatment.

Tattoo removal is customized to each person and typically requires multiple visits. The number of treatments needed will depend on the size of your tattoo and its location on the body, the age of the tattoo, and the colors of ink and quality of ink used.

With traditional tattoo removal, scarring and infection are possible. Amara’s laser tattoo technology leaves no procedure-related scarring or damage. It’s performed by a trained, licensed professional who will provide a customized treatment plan and follow-up instructions after the procedure.
