Depending of the size of the tattoo and its location on the body, as well as the depth of pigment under the skin, there are different possibilities for their elimination. Tattoos can be removed surgically, which is the most common way, using only local anesthesia, and you will need one or several more treatments. After the surgical treatment you will have straight line scar, and the size depends primarily of the size of the tattoo, as well as its location. If you have tattoo which pigment entered into shallower layers of the skin it is possible to remove it with so called dermabrasion (mechanically removing the superficial layers of the skin). Sometimes just one treatment its not enough to remove the tattoo completely, it can be just faded away on first appointment, and in that case, it is necessary to do the whole procedure again. In any case, the best time to do the procedure is in late autumn, winter or early spring, as newly emerging skin would not be exposed to sunlight, which can result in creating of dark spots. Standard treatment for tattoo removal is a laser – without bleeding and there are no side effects. For this kind of treatment you will visit your doctor several times. Anesthesia can be local. Type of laser which is used in this procedure depends of the color of the tattoo (hardest colors to remove are red and yellow, easiest to remove are blue and black). Lasers that are specially designed for tattoo removal use the so-called Q-switching technique, which consists of short pulses with high energy.

Lasers work specifically- destroys just a tattoo-colored pigment. What makes the Q-Switch laser different from the other lasers is that they have an extremely short duration of the laser pulse. In this laser, the laser pulse duration is measured in nanoseconds, and with other lasers, in milliseconds.

Laser develops a temperature greater than a few hundred Celsius degrees, which literally melts pigment and turn it into steam, and surrounding tissue is spared. Each pigment has a certain range of wavelengths which can absorb.
