Tattoos have been popular for more than 5,000 years. People have wanted them removed for over 5,000 years as well! That's why Patient Preferred Dermatology offers laser tattoo removal in Orange County. Tattoo ink is removed by using a specific light wavelength, which is absorbed by the ink pigment. The laser energy destroys the tattoo ink, while the surrounding skin remains undamaged. The ink fragments are ultimately absorbed by the body.
Laser tattoo removal requires multiple laser treatments. Some colors are more difficult to remove than others. The effectiveness of the laser is dependent on the age, location, depth, and type of tattoo, as well as the composition of the pigments.
