Top 7 Tattoos That Your Favorite Celebrity Had Removed and Why

When celebrities want to get rid of an unwanted tattoo, they turn to the same method that so many other people use: laser tattoo removal. This process removes tattoos more effectively and completely than other methods, and our advanced Enlighten™ Laser makes the procedure more comfortable and faster than ever.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Laser tattoo removal works by using a laser to target particles of ink pigment inside the skin. The laser penetrates the skin without causing any harm, but when it makes contact with a pigment molecule, it breaks up the pigment so the body can remove it.

While some lasers have trouble with bright colors and only work well on blue or black tattoos, the Enlighten™ Laser works on pigments of all colors, giving you a faster and more complete removal. According to Life & Style Magazine, these stars have had tattoos removed by laser
