Tattoo removal works by using lasers that deliver pulses of light energy towards ink particles under the skin. This causes the particles to shatter into tiny fragments until they disappear. If the ink does not respond to the laser light, the tattoo does not get removed.
This is why it’s important to use different laser wavelengths for different tattoo colors. Black inks are able to absorb all wavelengths, making them easier to remove.
Lighter inks such as green or yellow are harder to remove because they tend to reflect wavelengths instead of absorb them.
Other factors that affect the efficacy of tattoo removal lasers include the age of the tattoo, your body’s ability to heal, and if it was done professionally.
