Laser tattoo removal works by using high-intensity light beams to break up the pigments that give the tattoo color. The pigments are shattered into microscopic particles that are removed by the body’s natural processes. The laser beams are so exact that physicians are able to break up the pigments in the tattoo without causing damage to the skin surrounding it. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove because the color black absorbs all wavelengths, however most colored tattoos can also be removed using this method. The MedLite C6 is one of the highest quality lasers used for tattoo removal. It employs up to four wavelengths to remove different tattoo ink colors.
