How does it work?
During the treatment, the energy from the laser is directed to the ink particles on the skin. This energy helps to break up the pigmentation.

Over the next several weak,s you will begin to see the cleansing and filtering of the ink. These treatments are planned accordingly. Whenever you come for your next removal appointment, the ink would be a lot lighter.
