Methods Of Tattoo Removal

Laser

In recent times, many physicians consider laser surgery one of the best methods of tattoo removal. Today, the Q-switched Nd:Yag, Q-switched Alexandrite and the Q-switched Ruby are among the most frequently used lasers for the removal of unwanted tattoos. They are all employed in a similar manner. A local anesthetic cream to numb the skin can be applied prior to the treatment. Pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body’s scavenger cells remove the treated pigmented areas. More then one treatment is usually necessary to remove the entire tattoo at intervals of eight weeks.
