When it comes to tattoo removal, one of the most commonly asked questions is whether it is possible to remove one colour, or one part of a tattoo while the rest of it remains intact. For instance, if you have a multicoloured tattoo with yellow, orange, and black colours, would it be possible to remove one colour without the desired parts becoming blurry?
The simple answer is yes. You can get one colour, one area, or the entire tattoo removed or covered up, owing to the accuracy of laser tattoo removal treatment.

This process involves the selective absorption of extremely high peak power laser light pulses by the tattoo ink in the skin, which causes the targeted ink particles to disintegrate or break down mechanically while minimising potential damage to the surrounding tissues.
