Really interesting how they might be able to reduce laser sessions down to maybe only a couple!

Super exciting to see this progress but I can imagine the machine capable of doing such feats would cost an unbelievable amount and one session would be thousands

Can I be the test subject?

Need Jaymans opinion on this!

Definitely interesting. It was always thought that fibroblast cells contained the ink, but never known for sure, sounds like this research is finding that it is macrophages and that they think they can target them along with the laser treatment to speed up the process.

I'm slightly skeptical as it is the macrophages that actively clear the ink by swallowing smaller ink particles and moving them to the lymph network for removal, so if we kill them who will remove the ink? Plus they will always come back no matter if you kill them all initially during the laser treatment, sounds like a very short lived effect. If a laser does its job right (ie. delivers the right amount of energy) then the ink shatters into smaller particles, those particles will be removed and only the larger ones, the ones the macrophages can't move (for some unknown reason) will stay. I guess I don't see how killing the macrophages will result in better ink removal, it will still come down to the laser shattering the ink more effectively. We are after all seeing ink being removed by the current equipment, that proves the macrophages are in fact removing smaller particles even though they may be holding the larger ones. But what do I know? I'm not a scientist, just some goof behind a computer bored at work spouting of information Google has provided to me
