How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
If you’re seriously considering treatment for full removal, or fading to help facilitate a new cover-up, we encourage you to read this full write-up and watch the videos.
To fully understand how tattoos are removed, you should first know what makes a tattoo permanent to begin with.
Since the ink particles are too large to engulf by the macrophages (white blood cells) your tattoo remains under your skin forever.
Over the years, the ink particles slowly get smaller, allowing your ink to fade slightly. But it will never fully remove.
Tattoos are removed by greatly speeding up the natural fading of ink that time would create.
First, Ink Revoke uses the newest-generation FDA-Cleared laser – Quanta Studio, to shatter & fragment your ink into tiny particles.
The laser beam passes harmlessly through the top layers of your skin, heating up and destroying the ink underneath it. Suddenly, your ink particles are small enough to be engulfed.
Second, your body’s immune system responds by sending white blood cells to the fragmented ink particles. The shattered tattoo ink is then successfully engulfed by your white blood cells.
The next part of the process involes the ink traveling safely through your body’s lymphatic channels.
Finally, your liver receives the ink, and slowly removes it between treatments through natural bodily excretion.
More specifically, it passes through your liver, onto your gall bladder to bile, and eventually stool.
