Best Lasers for Colour Tattoo Removal
Our state-of-the-art Candela PicoWay® (with a wavelength of 730nm) is perfect for removing blue and green tattoos and purple inks as well as their shades of teal, turquoise, lime green, etc. It is also perfect for extremely stubborn shades of black that other clinics cannot completely remove.
Just as every client is different, every tattoo that undergoes laser tattoo removal is unique. Our goal at Removery is to remove all unwanted tattoos, regardless of the colours of ink in the design. To do so, multiple laser wavelengths are needed to get the job done.
Based on the concept of light absorption, some tattoo pigments absorb some wavelengths of light better than others. To provide effective tattoo removal treatments, you’ll want to make sure that your tattoo removal clinic has the appropriate wavelengths that will be well-absorbed by the tattoo inks you’re removing.
Our goal is absorption. Tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink particles in the skin, which your immune system then clears away (i.e. the fading process). To achieve this, the laser is pulsed over the tattoo, directing light energy toward the ink. The energy is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, which instantly break into microscopic fragments.
If the ink doesn’t absorb the laser light because an ineffective wavelength has been used, the ink doesn’t fragment and the tattoo won’t be removed. It’s as simple as that.
