Laser Tattoo Removal For Dark Ethnic Skin

 


People with dark skin types can easily have their tattoos removed. However, while researching laser tattoo removal, men and women of color and dark tanning should be aware of some special considerations.

Black and red tattoos do quite well. Light colors like sky blue, lavender, yellow or green require the use of a different laser than black tattoos.

We choose not to use these lasers on dark skin as we know they will cause pigment issues with your skin. At Changes Laser we want you to be aware of all the benefits and risks of any procedure we offer.

For tattoos on dark skin, we use a Q switched Yag which is safe for your skin . Mild pigment issues related to the Q switched Yag lasers are well tolerated by our patients who feel it is more important to them to get the tattoo removed.
