RE­GRET THAT INK?

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

It seems we Ki­wis love a lit­tle body adorn­ment, with one in five of us boast­ing a tat­too. How­ever, it seems the love af­fair doesn’t al­ways last; around 15 per cent of us re­gret get­ting that tat. Thank­fully, an in­no­va­tive up­date in tat­too removal tech­nol­ogy has now been cre­ated for the removal of green and blue tat­toos, and specif­i­cally tar­gets tat­toos on dark skin – which have pre­vi­ously been no­to­ri­ously hard to re­move. The new and im­proved tech­nol­ogy is able to ab­sorb 10 times more ink than pre­vi­ous tech­nol­ogy, thanks to ul­tra-short pulses. These bursts of en­ergy cre­ate a photo-me­chan­i­cal im­pact which breaks up the tat­too

ink into smaller, more eas­ily elim­i­nated par­ti­cles.
