Tattoo Removal Clinic LaserLife
It is estimated that 1 in 5 people in the UK have at least one tattoo (now that’s a lot of ink). Its popularity among celebrities, such as Rhianna and Harry Styles, has increased its trend and with more young people going on holiday where you can receive a tattoo blind drunk, it is no surprise that tattoo removal treatments are equally as popular.
The metals in the ink is what gives tattoos their permanency, but some inks have been known to cause allergic reactions like eczema or substantial scarring. From the moment a needle deposits ink deep in the skin, the immune system recognises these particles as foreign intruders, dispatching armies of white blood cells to engulf them. The white blood cells then escort small ink particles to the liver, where they are processed and excreted.
Even over time, as the white blood cells eat away at the ink particles, most are still too large for the white blood cells to grab onto and remove from the skin. That’s why they’re permanent. To erase a tattoo, you need lasers to break up the ink particles.
Tattoo removal lasers are extremely hot, operate in a very narrow frequency, and are very, very fast.
This speed and heat is crucial to cracking the ink particles apart.
To break up an ink particle, you need to heat it to make it expand due to thermal expansion, but the zap has to be quick enough so that half of the particle remains cool. The opposing cool and hot forces then rip the ink particle apart. This process is also used in laser hair removal.
It’s slightly more painful than getting a tattoo in the first place. The lasers heat the ink particles to thousands of degrees, but it happens so rapidly and specifically directed toward the ink that the laser doesn’t burn the tissue. Though painful, this effect usually lasts just a few seconds.
