What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a technique that helps you get rid of unwanted tattoos with minimal pain. It utilizes a special laser device that directs the laser beam on the tattoo to be removed. The laser beam heats the tattoo pigments that break down into smaller ink particles and get expelled from the body through the lymphatic system. During the whole procedure, the surrounding skin does not get harmed.
