How Tattoo Removal Works

Tattoo Removal of DallasHow Does Tattoo Removal Work?

Tattoo removal is performed using a laser beam to break up the ink particles of the tattoo.  Tattoo ink is made up of metals such as lead, copper, manganese, and mercury. When a tattoo is first completed, the body’s natural response is to send white blood cells to attack the tattoo and remove the particles by absorbing them.  But the tattoo ink particles are often too big for the white blood cells, making it difficult for the body to remove them, and that is why tattoos fade some over time, but remain permanent.


Tattoo removal is performed using a laser treatment called a Picosure.  Dallas tattoo removal doctors use this laser treatment because it is extremely effective. Unlike other treatments, it is considered the safest because the high intensity light beam releases the heat in picoseconds which protects the skin from burning.  The laser breaks up the ink particles using blasts of heats to force the particles to rip apart. Once the particles have broken into smaller pieces, the body can them absorb them and the tattoo fades away.


Picosure tattoo removal in Dallas has greater results, fewer treatments and faster recovery time.  Although it can be painful, the pain is temporary as the laser fires so quickly with the Picosure. This process can take several treatments to remove the whole tattoo.  Darker pigments respond the best to this laser treatment, although Picosure gets great results with more difficult tattoo colors as well.


It is vital that the treatment be performed by a qualified tattoo removal doctor in Dallas.  If you would like more information about tattoo removal in Dallas, contact Lakewood Aesthetics.  Our staff is highly skilled in Picosure, the safest and most effective tattoo removal treatment.
