How does the laser treatment work?

The laser uses selective photo-thermolysis to remove the ink from the targeted area by shattering it and protecting surrounding skin. Hence, the surrounding skin is protected, and only the tattooed area is under laser.

So laser does not create scars then?

Laser removal of a tattoo does not cause scars until and unless there is an existing scar, or the skin is prone to scarring or inflammations or keloids. Scars can also develop in cases of poor aftercare of a treated area. In most common cases, the scar that seems to develop after the treatment by the laser is usually the prior result of a bad case of tattooing.

Where do the scars come from then?

Scars are mostly left to the skin by tattoo artist, and as the laser fades the ink away, the visibility of it reaches its peak height. Hence, it is clear that this above-mentioned technique does not remove scars, but prevents the formation of new ones to the same area.

How to avoid new scars?
