Myth: Tattoo removal will remove my skin’s natural pigment.

Myth: Tattoo removal will remove my skin’s natural pigment.

Fact: The Nd:YAG 1064nm laser won't damage natural pigmentation even on the darkest skin. Ruby and Alexandrite lasers damage melanin, often causing skin bleaching (Hypo-pigmentation) or darkening (Hyper-pigmentation).  Black, Hispanic or Mediterranean skins should avoid Ruby or Alexandrite lasers (including Picosure).
