In SharpLight’s tattoo removal treatments and equipment, a laser technology is used to target the ink of the tattoo and to apply localized pulses of light, aimed to decompose the tattoo’s pigment clusters. More specifically, this pulsed light safely passes through the skin’s outer layer and is absorbed by the ink; the light is then converted to heat, which breaks the ink down into much smaller, more manageable particles. The body’s lymphatic system then filters these particles out over several weeks’ time and, as this natural elimination occurs, the tattoo fades and eventually disappears. SharpLight’s technologies include varying spot sizes and other customizable settings to ensure the most effective removal with the lowest risk of side effects. 

Tattoo Removal


How does tattoo removal work?


 Tattoo removal typically involves the use of laser technology to break down the ink particles in the skin. During the procedure, high-intensity laser beams are directed at the tattooed area. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing it to fragment into smaller particles. Over time, the body's immune system naturally flushes out these fragmented ink particles, leading to a gradual fading of the tattoo. Multiple treatment sessions are usually required, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve significant results. The number of sessions depends on factors like the tattoo's size, color, ink type, and the individual's skin characteristics.

Is tattoo removal painful?

Tattoo removal can be uncomfortable, and the level of pain varies depending on individual pain tolerance, the location of the tattoo, and the type of laser used. Most people compare the sensation to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin or a series of small pricks. Some clinics offer numbing creams or local anesthesia to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After the session, there may be temporary redness, swelling, or even blistering in the treated area, similar to a sunburn. Your skin will need time to heal between sessions, and following proper aftercare instructions can help manage discomfort and promote healing.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with tattoo removal?


Tattoo removal using lasers is generally safe when performed by trained and experienced professionals. However, there are potential risks and side effects to be aware of. Temporary side effects may include redness, swelling, blistering, itching, or mild pain in the treated area. These effects usually subside within a few days to a couple of weeks. In some cases, there's a risk of scarring, especially if aftercare instructions are not followed correctly or if the skin is prone to scarring. Additionally, individuals with certain skin types may be at a higher risk of pigment changes, such as hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin) or hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin). Consulting with a reputable tattoo removal clinic and undergoing a thorough consultation can help you understand the potential risks and benefits based on your unique situation.
