In both laser hair and laser tattoo removal, laser light, delivered through the epidermis, interacts with a target pigmented structure within the skin.
During tattoo removal, the laser energy essentially explodes the target tattoo ink into smaller particles that can be taken up and eliminated by macrophages (our living scavenger cells).
Laser hair removal can be permanent if the hair’s follicle can be destroyed when the laser light interacts with the pigments contained in a hair within its follicle.
For both of these procedures, intense pulsed light (IPL) is sometimes used, in combination with laser light, for optimal results. Laser Light Treatment Center has two brand new, state-of-the-art, laser machines, one for removing hair and one for erasing unwanted tattoos. These machines compliment the other laser and light machines that have been in service for years in our office.
All hair and tattoo removal treatments at Laser Light Treatment Center are performed by registered nurses with extensive training and experience.
