Laser Tattoo Removal

What Skin Tones Experience The Best Results For Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal works well on Fitzpatrick skin types 1-3 with darker tattoos. This is because lasers work by selective photothermolysis, meaning, it finds the ink and not the melanin in the skin therefore minimizing the chance of skin discoloration.

Once a laser pulse finds ink  pigment in the skin, the pigment absorbs the laser’s energy and fragments. The body’s immune system then eliminates the pigment particles, gradually fading the tattoo. 

For Fitpatrick skin types 4-6, the process may take a little longer because the skin’s darker pigmentation makes it harder for a laser to effectively detect and differentiate between the tattoo’s borders and the surrounding tissue. LaserAway’s clinical team are experts in laser tattoo removal and perform more treatments than anyone in the industry. We also use the gold standard technology for laser tattoo removal which is the 1064 nm, Nd:YAG laser. 

This is safe and effective for all skin types!
