Tattoo removal uses lasers, dermabrasion, or excision to destroy or remove the ink in an unwanted tattoo.
All inks are removed best at specific wavelengths of light. Examples are 532nm (reds & yellows), 755nm (blues & greens), 1064nm (black and darker colors). It also depends on the laser and the quality of the laser at those wavelengths. For instance I have been able to remove some yellow and reds with my new picoway in one treatment. However, some black tattoos can be easily removed too. It really depends on how much ink and the quality of ink that the tattoo artist used. There are just as many variables in removing the ink as there is in putting the ink in the skin by the artist.
