The Natural Fading Process
Tattooing involves a needle inserting large ink particles into your skin's dermis layer, triggering your immune system to send bacteria-eating cells to remove the foreign substance. However, the cells are vastly smaller than the large ink particles, limiting them to remove the tiniest ink fragments. This intuitive and unceasingly immune process explains why tattoos are permanent but naturally fade and gradually lose color over a lifetime.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal essentially speeds up the natural fading process by breaking down the large ink particles to make the removal process easier for your immune system. Remember, your immune system does all of the work to remove the ink–the laser simply speeds up the process by shattering the ink into nanoparticles that your tiny bacteria-eating cells can more easily process.
Our Astanza Duality laser directs ultra-quick pulses of light energy over the unwanted tattoo during a treatment. The ink particles absorb the light energy, heat up, and shatter into considerably smaller fragments that your immune system then flushes out naturally. In addition, our laser explicitly targets only the tattoo ink without harming the surrounding skin tissue, making laser tattoo removal the safest technique for erasing unwanted ink. The same applies to selective tattoo removal treatment, where specific tattoo elements, such as a name, are removed without impacting the surrounding ink.
Virtually every tattoo will require numerous treatments to remove the many layers of ink in a tattoo successfully. Using a list of factors, Navarre Beach Tattoo Company calculates the number of treatments each unique tattoo will need to reach desired results (i.e., complete removal or lightening for a cover-up).

Fading for Cover-Ups
While a large majority of clients seek laser tattoo removal to remove their tattoos entirely, many people pursue laser tattoo removal to revise or change their existing ink. Tattoo artists all over, including the talented artists at our Navarre studio, actually encourage clients interested in receiving a cover-up to fade their tattoo with laser tattoo removal beforehand.
Depending on the pre-existing ink, most cover-ups can be pretty difficult to cover, even for the most talented tattoo artists. This is especially the case when working on large, heavily pigmented, dark black pieces.
Laser tattoo removal lightens an existing tattoo and creates a cleaner canvas, which removes size and color limitations and gives you and your artist the ability to design something that you genuinely love as opposed to a big, black square.
