Even though laser tattoo removal is the most safe, most effective plastic surgery treatment available, there still is the risk of leaving a lifetime scar in the removal area. The pros are your best bet and will cause the least likely damage your skin tissue area. Talk long and hard with the institute for reconstructive surgery that you decide on to set your mind at ease. Bring a list of questions with you. They are used to be drilled with questions upon consultation.

The overwhelmingly popular act of tattooing the body has spread across the globe as a hallmark of entering adulthood. Teens anxiously wait the time when they can legally get tattooed and parents try their best to warn their teens of the consequences of their actions. Many studios see individuals come into the parlor with a set idea of getting another person's name inked into their skin. All the artist can do is shake their head in silence and remind them the only way to lose the ink later is through laser tattoo removal.

Much like ranch owners that brand their cattle so they can be identified, so too do gangs. Gang leaders want each member to be tattooed as a way of identification. But for those who want to escape the trials of gang life, their tattoos are a constant reminder to themselves and the world that the guns and violence are not far away. There is hope though. Laser tattoo removal is a way many professionals are donating their time and money to help ex-gang members leave their past behind. It cannot heal what is on the inside but it can get rid of the outward reminders.

The process of tattooing the skin is not the sole property of a licensed tattoo studio or parlor. Many tattoo's that later undergo laser tattoo removal are homemade tattoos done in someone's home. These primitive and low quality tattoos are often the most difficult to remove due to the application under which they are applied. The homemade tattoo machine is similar to the professional one used in the studio. It is the tattoo artist that is different. One person has training and chances are the other does not. The untrained operator often goes too deep into the dermis (skin) of the person. The laser tattoo removal then becomes very expensive.

Laser tattoo removal is the application process of a specialized laser to the skin surface. The laser burns the layers of skin and after a few applications, depending on the depth of the ink, the tattoo is removed. The actual procedure is a beam of light directed at the pigments of the tattoo. After breaking apart the body's immune system does the actual removing.

Black dyes are the easiest to remove because they absorb all wavelengths. Colors such as green, red and yellow must have selective wavelength used that are specific to their spectrum.
