How laser tattoo removal treatment works?

The Laser beams act on the ink solid particles and break up the pigments with the high-intensity light beam. Black colored ink absorbs all laser wavelengths and can be easily removed from the skin. All other colors are treated by selected lasers based upon the ink color. Small tattoos can be removed completely with few pulses of laser beams and larger tattoos require more course of treatment.
