Tattoos are made up of clumps of ink pigment scattered through the lower layer of skin. The body cannot cast off large clumps of pigment so seals them off with a protective fibrous wall isolating them from the surrounding tissue.
The laser works by breaking up the fibrous capsule and dispersing the ink into smaller fragments. The body's natural defence mechanism takes over to remove these smaller particles over a number of weeks. This procedure needs to be repeated several times to achieve visible fading of the tattoo.
