“I have had unsightly tattoos for about 40 years and have tried other treatments to remove them (including having them burnt off). These treatments made the tattoos even more ugly and left lots of scarring.
My treatment at the Laser Loft worked wonders from the very first treatment. It wasn’t as painful as described and healed beautifully. After just 4 treatments I am thrilled with the results.”
Mr J. Naidu 60 year old male (Treatment: Tattoo Removal)
Tattoo inks tend to be made of compounds from heavy metals and often contain metals like lead, copper, and manganese. Some red inks even contain mercury.
From the moment a needle deposits ink deep in the skin, the immune system recognizes these particles as foreign intruders, dispatching armies of white blood cells to engulf them. The white blood cells then escort small ink particles to the liver, where they are processed and excreted.
But many of the ink particles are much larger than white blood cells, which is why new tattoos fade over time, but won't completely disappear naturally.
Even over time, as the white blood cells eat away at the ink particles, most are still too large for the white blood cells to grab onto and remove from the skin.
That's why they're permanent.
NDYag lasers are used to break up the ink particles and erase the tattoo,.
