The new-age laser techniques are a ‘class-apart’ in erasing them with little risk of scarring. The Picosure laser used at Hi5 Tattoos emits an intense beam of light to remove the tattoo without harming the healthy skin cells in the vicinity. The laser light breaks the tattoo ink particles into tiny fragments which are then washed out through the body’s natural cleansing mechanism. This causes the tattoo to fade out or be removed. The whole cleansing process generally takes several weeks.
