Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work on Colors?

If you looked into laser tattoo removal in the past, you may have learned that laser tattoo removal didn’t work on colors.

Good news: That’s not the case anymore. Read on to learn how the newest generation of laser tattoo removal technologies work to remove colorful tattoos.

Yes, Laser Tattoo Removal Works on Colors!

That’s because laser tattoo removal has been improved over the past couple of decades, meaning the technology has become so good that it can now target color pigments within tattoos.

While laser tattoo removal still works best on black, red, and blue-colored inks, you can still see significant fading – and even total removal – with laser tattoo removal using the latest laser.

At New York Skin & Vein Center, we use the Enlighten™ Laser to perform our laser tattoo removal sessions. 

Enlighten™ is simply the world’s best laser for tattoo removal. The laser light breaks the ink into tiny fragments. Over time, these scattered pigments are reabsorbed back into the dermal tissue, leaving behind clear, tattoo-free skin.

Enlighten™ is much better than any other tattoo removal lasers because it uses both picosecond and nanosecond bursts of light. These faster pico pulses of light result in better removal of the tattoos in as little as TWO sessions compared to other lasers. In other words, you won’t have to sit through dozens of laser tattoo removal sessions to get rid of your tattoo!

Laser Tattoo Removal Consultations Available

Additionally, the Enlighten™ uses three distinct wavelengths of laser light that target different colors including green, teal, yellow, and orange!

At New York Skin & Vein Centers, we understand that the laser tattoo removal can be a lengthy process. We offer a unique guarantee that you won’t find anywhere else:

If your tattoo isn’t eliminated by the 8th treatment, you won’t be charged for any additional treatments. 

Best Candidates for Laser Tattoo Removal

The best candidates for laser tattoo removal are those individuals who are willing to commit to the recommended laser tattoo regimen for them. While we can treat all tattoos, they’ll fade faster if:

  • They’re relatively older
  • They contain black or blue inks
  • They’re closer to your heart
