VIDEO: How laser tattoo removal works

Professor Rodney Sinclair explains how advances in laser tattoo removal technology have enabled the relatively safe and easy removal of tattoos.

Rodney Sinclair is a senior Australian dermatologist and a Professor of Dermatology, Honorary, at the University of Melbourne.
