Tattoos consist of thousands of particles of tattoo pigment suspended in the skin. While normal human growth and healing processes will remove small foreign particles from the skin, tattoo pigment particles are permanent because they are too large to be removed. Laser treatment causes tattoo pigment particles to heat up and fragment into smaller pieces, which are then removed by normal body processes.
Laser Tattoo Removal is a successful application of the theory of selective photothermolysis (SPTL). However, unlike treatments for blood vessels or hair removal, the mechanisms required to shatter tattoo particlesuses the photomechanical effect. In this situation the energy is absorbed byt hi ink particles in a very short time, typically nanoseconds. The surface temperature of the ink particles can rise to thousands of degrees, but this energy profile rapidly collapses into a shock wave. This shock wave then propagates throughout the local tissue (dermis) causing brittle structures to fragment. Hence the tissues are largely unaffected since they simply vibrate as the shock wave passes.
