How It Works

How Tattoo Removal Works

Tattoo ink is deposited in the dermis of the skin. The body recognizes the ink as a foreign body and the immune system kicks in to remove the ink, but the ink particles are too large to be removed creating a permanent tattoo.

In a laser tattoo removal session the skin is not touched and the ink is targeted. The laser energy is absorbed by the ink and it shatters the ink into smaller pieces. The immune system kicks in as soon as it recognizes the smaller foreign bodies (shattered ink) now small enough to be flushed out by the immune system.

Full-Spectrum Removal

Like with all other coloured objects, different tattoo colours either absorb or reflect different wavelengths of light energy. Tattoo removal is only successful when tattoo ink absorbs a laser’s wavelength. For example, a red apple looks red because it absorbs green light and reflects red light (which is the colour we see). The same applies to a red tattoo. A green wavelength must be used in order to be absorbed by red ink. Upon absorption, the red ink will heat up and shatter. If a red wavelength is used on a red tattoo, the light would be reflected and the ink would stay intact, permanently trapped in your skin.

Our Astanza Trinity laser produces a total of three wavelengths, 1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694 nm, to successfully target and shatter all tattoo colours. Each wavelength targets a specific group of colours to ensure absorption and deliver complete, full-spectrum removal across the widest range of tattoo colours.

Many clinics have to turn away clients with multicoloured tattoos because their laser does not offer the special 694 nm ruby wavelength our Trinity provides. This ruby wavelength is essential for removing “resistant and stubborn” bright blue and green tattoos that other clinics find difficult to treat with their traditional laser. Only Dr. Magic Laser Eraser in Blackfalds, Alberta is capable of treating all tattoo colours and all patient skin types.

All of these features combined makes the Trinity and Dr. Magic Laser Eraser the best solution for laser tattoo removal throughout Blackfalds, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, and other surrounding Alberta cities.
