Laser Tattoo Removal: Out from Under Your Skin

Learn exactly how light can get rid of color with Groupon’s exploration of tattoo removal.

In 2012, a Harris Interactive poll reported, one out of five US adults had a tattoo—and 14% of those polled wished they could take it back. Through laser tattoo removal, they might be able to do just that. The job of a laser system configured to fade tattoos is essentially to make the tiny granules implanted by the tattoo needle beneath the skin even smaller. During removal, the device emits short pulses of light whose wavelength is calibrated to be absorbed only by certain colors. The ink absorbs the energy from this light, heats up, and breaks down into fragments small enough to be escorted away by the immune system’s tiny bodyguards.

Certain pigment colors are easier to remove than others: black pigment is the easiest to remove because it absorbs all laser wavelengths, whereas yellow is one of the most difficult because it only absorbs a very specific wavelength. The tattoo’s location also affects how completely it can be removed: tattoos closer to the heart benefit from rapid blood flow that can quickly carry away ink fragments and sad memories.

In the decades before lasers, the main option for removing tattoos was simply abrading the skin, which always carried a risk of scarring. Further back, centuries-old historical accounts discuss a diverse array of removal tactics, from covering skin with saltpeter and turpentine in ancient Alexandria to stretching the tattoo while rubbing it with green corn juice among the North American Chickasaw people. In the future, all tattoos may be more temporary: new tattoo inks are being developed that encapsulate the pigment particles in microscopic beads designed to easily rupture under a single laser pulse. For now, however, multiple treatment sessions are almost always necessary.

A Change of Art

Dr. Gwendolyn Yates and Christopher Yates co-founded A Change of Art to focus on a single area of expertise: laser tattoo removal. Dr. Yates, who has practiced for more than 15 years, serves as medical director and lead laser technician, while Christopher draws upon 20 years of medical sales experience in his role as clinic manager. There's a third member of their team, too: a Quanta Q-Plus C laser, whose three beams can target tattoos of any color, not just the ones done in invisible ink.

Focusing on such a specific service means that the team also devotes a lot of time to client education. Their web site, for example, has resources such as easy-to-read FAQs and primers that tell guests what to expect.
