Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoo has become very popular in USA and European countries. Recently tattoo is becoming very popular in India at a very faster rate. But at least 50 % of the people who had tattoos on their skin want to remove them. It is good news that the tattoos can be removed now with latest laser technology with minimal side effects.

For tattoo removal, high density laser beam is applied in a controlled manner over the area where the tattoo to be removed is located. Black pigment in the tattoo absorbs all the laser wave length. So removing black tattoos are easier. Color pigments absorb laser beams of specific wave lengths only. For removing color pigments in a tattoo, laser beams of the corresponding have to be applied.

Based on the above technique the treatment program is tailored to suit the individual needs of each candidate. In the past tattoos were removed by crude methods. But in most cases, the scars left after the above procedures were more unsightly than the tattoo itself.

Candidates who have undergone treatment for tattoo removal and for those who have tried out rude home remedies are also suitable candidates for laser tattoo removal provided they do not have excessive scars on their body.


Depending upon the color and size of the tattoo the number of days required for removing them may vary. Your tattoo removal procedure starts with a discussion of the matter with an expert in tattoo removal. He will examine your tattoo, study your medical history and prepare a schedule for carrying out your tattoo removal procedure. Number of sessions required for the complete removal of the tattoo may vary depending upon the age of the candidate and size and type of the tattoo. A professional tattoo may require more sessions for removal than an amateur tattoo.


The procedure starts with placing an eye shield on the face of the candidate. After this skins reaction to laser beam is tested to find out the energy level of the laser beam to be applied. Now a hand piece is placed on the surface of the tattoo and the laser beam is activated. The candidate may feel the laser beam pulses as a snapping of rubber band against the skin. Smaller tattoos need lesser pulses where as larger tattoos require more pulses. In any case tattoo removal requires many visits. After each visit the tattoo becomes lighter and lighter. After completing each day’s procedure ice pack is applied over the area to soothe the area. An antibiotic cream or ointment will be given for applying over the area. No form of anesthesia is required in this procedure. But depending upon the pain threshold of the patient and the area of the tattoo the doctor may use topical anesthesia or pain killer injections to make the procedure easier.
