Especially when you’ve effective and safe alternatives like laser hair removal? But are you able to treat ares of the body that have tattoos. Will laser hair removal affect your tattoos? The short answer is yes. Let’s see why?
How laser hair removal work?
Laser works by emitting a concentrated beam of light, which is attracted by the pigment in your hair and transported to the follicles. Where it destroys the root of your hair. For the treatment to be effective your hair must have pigment.
Will laser hair removal affect tattoos?
Essentially the ink in your tattoo is stored in the skin as pigment. Do you see where I go with this? Because of this the laser will be attracted to the ink. As the result of increased amount of pigment and heat, the laser can damage, distort or completely remove your tattoo. For this reason your practitioner would never cover the surrounding area around tattoos in order to preserve them without damage to the skin and the ink.
