Laser Tattoo Removal Wavelengths

Now we’re going to get a little technical but here’s some information you may want to know when getting laser tattoo removal. We fundamentally perform tattoo removal with separate laser wavelengths. Ink beneficially reacts with a laser beam wavelength on the opposing end of the color spectrum. For instance, a ruby-colored laser will react most desirable on a green tattoo design.

When initially treating tattoo art it may be worth proceeding with the 1064 nm wavelength. Many tattoo shops will frequently use basic colors and use black or white ink to deepen or lighten the base shades. Therefore a color like a red may yet respond to the 1064. The wavelength of 532 is utilized for the colors red, yellow, and orange. The initial whitening impact of the 532nm laser is not as prominent or obvious as the 1064nm, however, you should nevertheless be able to notice a lightening after your procedure.
