What Should We Know About Laser Tattoo Removal

As the times have changed, a great number of people have tattoos on their skins and tend to get more to cover up their body parts. Tattooing becomes a fashion trend in nowadays, on one hand people want to get tattoo because it make you fell good, on the other hand, few folks may have some dumb tattoos because want to act like “cool” but they have no idea what kind of pattern they should have. And it’s well-known that there’s no regret once you get inked, therefore laser tattoo removal catches their eyes. It can effectively and permanently remove the piece in several sessions, people start to take it into concern.

Laser Tattoo Removal

While there are lots of ways to remove tattoos in the past, by far the most popular and effective is laser tattoo removal. Different than the past, new laser removal technique can remove tattoos completely and without leaving any scars or wounds like other methods, such as surgical removal and dermabrasion (an exfoliate technique to remove the outer layer of skin) .

The main theory of laser removal is to use high energy laser light to break up the ink into body absorbable particles. It infiltrates through the bottom layer of skin, which won’t cause any injury on the surface.

Factors Determining the Price of Laser Removal

The technicians will need to ask customers to fill up the questionnaires in order to determine numbers of session they need. The questionnaire form includes a range of factors, which can help technicians have a basic plan about the following treatments of laser removal.

First, is the Fitzpatrick Skin Type Scale that is used to determine skin type (1-6) based on skin tone before sun exposure, hair and eye color.  

The next determining factor of the laser removel is whether the ink is layered, meaning if it is a cover up of another tattoo.

The location on the body is also important since skin reacts differently to the laser depending on exposure to the sun.

Ink colors are also important when considering laser removal. Different colors react differently to the laser process: turquoise is notoriously difficult to remove because the wavelengths of the laser light can often “miss” these tones.  

The amount of ink applied is usually characterized by vividness in a piece; the denser the ink the more sessions required to break it up.  

Any existing scarring will also need to be taken into account, as this damaged skin can react differently to laser treatments.

Finally, the size of the piece is an obvious determining factor.


To be honest, the price of laser removal can be varied due to many reasons. It’s lucky to get a satisfying tattoo, but to some people who wants to use new tattoo to cover up or use laser technique to eliminate, either of these choices is expensive and it’s not affordable to few folks. I really recommend tattoo beginners use temporary tattoo stickers before get inked. Using tattoo sticker can let people know more about which body part is more suitable for them to have tattoo, don’t even need to worry about future tattoo removal. Moreover, tattoo sticker can be wrapped by body oil, which means we can easily change patterns and without any hurt.
