How Does Laser Removal Work?

Laser Tattoo Removal works by breaking apart the ink molecules into millions of microscopic pieces so that the body’s immune system can naturally take it away. In fact, it’s the body’s immune system that causes people’s tattoos to naturally fade in the first place. Lasers drastically accelerate this body process.  Laser Removal has proven to be effective and has helped many people get rid of their unwanted body art.

This process usually takes between 5-15 treatments to effectively remove the tattoo. Unfortunately, not all colors can be effectively removed with lasers as some pigments to not respond as well to treatment.  Many people also report that laser treatment is many times more painful than getting the initial tattoo.

How Eliminink Works

The Eliminink Tattoo Removal method works via a very different mechanism.  First, it does not require as many treatments as laser removal. Some tattoos are removed in as little as one treatment, with most of them being successfully eliminated in 3-5 treatments.  Since the Eliminink method requires fewer treatments, those wishing to remove their tattoos can generally save up to 25% of the cost of laser removal. Eliminink is also less painful. Most clients say it is only about as painful as getting a tattoo.

Unlike lasers, which break apart the ink molecules, Eliminink actually draws the ink to the skin’s surface and forms a scab.  With proper aftercare, much of the ink is removed when the skin heals and the scab falls off. Perhaps the most important distinction between Eliminink and laser removal is that Eliminink is effective for all tattoos, regardless of the color.
