Some say yes, some say no. Laser tattoo removal is one of the fastest, most effective ways of getting rid of unwanted tattoos. The mechanism for removing a tattoo is called ‘Photo Mechanical’ and basically what that means is that the laser acts with a short, sharp, very high energy pulse to target the ink particles to break them up – literally smashing them. This action is quite intense at the site, which is what causes the pain.
At BacktoBlank Laser Tattoo Removal, we counter the pain by blowing -30 degree celsius air onto the tattoo site using our Zimmer Cooler while the laser is at work i.e.: cooling while heating. While it is not possible to remove the pain altogether, we have had many clients tell us that it has minimised the pain very effectively which is our aim.
