How exactly does the PicoSure laser break up the tattoo ink?


Two key processes break up the tattoo  ink – the pigment in your tattoo will absorb the energy from the laser and shatter apart; also, the incredibly fast pulse (a trillionth of a second) of energy from the PicoSure laser has a shockwave-like effect that also assists the ink shattering. As a result, the ink acts like a boulder breaking apart into small sand grains that are removed by your immune system.
