The Dangers of Laser Tattoo Removal
According to a current worldwide investigation that includes the EEC and FDA there has been analysis of the constituent ingredients in tattoo pigment that when exposed to laser irradiation can cause serious health risks.
The Makeup of Tattoo Pigment
It has been found that most of today's commercially available tattoo pigments are inorganic azo-pigments or polycyclic compounds. When laser pulses are applied to these compounds the ensuing heat causes the pigment particles to explode with some parts eventually transported to the liver. At autopsy the chemicals have also been shown to leach out into the skin and critical organs such as the lungs.
What this means in simple language is that laser tattoo removal can create unforeseen health risks long after the tattoo removal process that you simply would not want to deal with. There is currently no data that can disprove highly undesirable systemic health effects of laser tattoo removal and in particular the long-term effects which may contribute to specific types of cancer.
