Laser Tattoo Removal

We are often asked about tattoo removal, as tattoos have become so popular and commonplace in today’s society. Tattoos are embedded in the skin for artistic reasons but can also be caused by trauma, such as falling off a bike or motorcycle. Every day we see patients from every walk of life who have second thoughts about their tattoo. Fortunately, advanced laser technology allows us to remove traumatic and artistic tattoos safely without leaving a scar. When the dirt or ink particles from a tattoo absorb the light from the laser, the color is broken up into tiny fragments. These fragments are then removed through the body’s natural cleansing mechanism leaving behind normal skin.

At the Groot DermaSurgery Centre, we use a variety of lasers for laser tattoo removal, including the 1064 nm Nd:Yag and Alexandrite lasers.
