Why Does Ink Color Matter for Laser Tattoo Removal?

As one of the most common questions related to removing unwanted tattoos, patients always want to know how their varying ink colors are treated during the removal process.

Why does it feel different when my black is being treated versus my red ink?

It’s all actually very simply and involves a small amount of elementary physics.

So, light is delivered in varying wavelengths. These wavelengths can be visible or invisible, but can only be absorbed by a certain set of colors. It is the process of the ink absorbing the laser energy that allows the ink to shatter and progressively fade.

If your laser tattoo removal facility is using a laser that has green light (532nm), it cannot effectively treat green inks. The same wavelength that is ineffective for green inks is absolutely ideal treating pigments that can be found on the opposite side of the color wheel – in this case, shades of red.

The same concept goes for all laser tattoo removal technology. Houston is in luck though.
