During laser tattoo removal, laser technology is used to selectively target and  break down tattoo ink within the skin without damaging surrounding tissue, which greatly decreases scarring. Lasers have differing wavelengths and pulse durations, and different laser beams are absorbed by specific colors, allowing physicians to choose the precise combination of lasers for the depth and color of a particular tattoo. After treatment the skin is more uniform and natural in appearance, although some changes in skin texture and color may be unavoidable.
