How it works

The laser delivers specific wavelengths in ultra-short, very high energy pulses that are absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo resulting in an acoustic shockwave. The shockwave shatters the pigment particles, releasing them from their encapsulation and breaking them into fragments small enough for removal and elimination by the body. Since the laser light must be absorbed by the pigment particles, the laser wavelength is carefully selected to match the absorption spectrum of the pigment.
