Some people looking for tattoo removal want to be tattoo-free. Others want to replace their old tattoo with something new. Laser tattoo removal can help your tattoo artist by lightening your old tattoo. If you have no plans for a cover-up, more sessions will erase your tattoo.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
The New York Skin & Vein Center team uses the Enlighten™ laser for tattoo lightening and removal. The energy from this laser targets tattoo pigments deep in the skin. The laser heats them and breaks them apart so your body’s natural filtration process can get rid of them. The tattoo then fades over time.
