Like Tattoo Colors, Not all Lasers are Created Equal

Two key considerations when selecting the right laser tattoo removal machine are the colors and how deep the ink is embedded. Not all laser tattoo removal machines emit the wavelengths necessary to target the full spectrum of pigment colors. In fact, removing light blue and green pigments is notoriously difficult.
