London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/11/2013 -- Before laser, tattoo removal methods such as demabrasion and salibrasion would leave scaring, they involved abrasion of the epidermis layer of skin to get down to the dermis where the ink was located. Excission was often used for smaller tattoos this method involved literally cutting the tattoo out.
Laser tattoo removal utilizes high energy light bursts, these can safely penetrate into the deep dermis layers of the skin and be absorbed by the tattoo ink. The energy produced by the laser helps break up the ink pigments of the tattoo, once broken up this ink is naturally and safely removed by the body.
