How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Every color of ink requires a different wavelength of light and amount of energy to be efficiently removed. ClearLift is a high-powered Q-switched laser that can operate 2 different wavelengths to be effective with darker colors, brighter colors like red and orange.
When you get a tattoo, the ink sits in your skin in semi-solid form. The laser treatment breaks up the ink into smaller particles that are now in solid format.
This is achieved by a photo-acoustic effect created by the impact of the laser energy delivered with very short pulses to the targeted ink.
Once the ink particles are broken up and small enough, your body’s natural healing processes (the lymphatic system) removes the ink fragments from your body. This allows your tattoo to fade with only minimal risks of scarring or skin discoloration.
