A Q-Switch ND: Yang Laser

Tattoo removal uses laser energy to break up and disperse tattoo pigment safely. Removal must be tailored to your particular needs. Green, yellow, and fluorescent inks can be stubborn, because their absorption spectrums often fall outside those of most lasers.

An Estimate of 45% of the people with tattoos want them removed.

We use the Q-Switch ND: YAG Laser. It is the most common type of laser used in tattoo removal, the Q-switch produces light pulses of extremely high peak power. and each one targets a different color spectrum at different wavelengths.

The Q-switch lasers are so precise and intense, tattoo pigments fragment instantly, and the surrounding tissue is spared so you need to give your body time to heal between laser treatments.

The area in question may appear to be fully healed externally within 2 weeks, the healing process is actually much longer — more like six weeks. During that time, the body’s lymphatic system is doing its job of removing the ink that has been broken up by the laser.

Your final result from each session will not be apparent until around the six-week mark. Therefore, six weeks is the recommended time between sessions. Going back under the laser sooner than this can result in over treating the area, which can mean damage to the skin, not to mention unnecessary discomfort and expense.

Smaller tattoos will require fewer pulses while larger ones will need more to remove them.

Depending on the color of your tattoo you may have some discoloration or hypopigmentation.

Which should last between 6 to 12 months.

It is possible to have some residual left. Scaring is also possible but rare.

Tattoo Removal

You’re good candidate for Tattoo removal if you have medium to fair skin and your tattoo contains dark — but not dense — ink at a superficial depth. Medium- and fair-skinned people react well because the laser can selectively target ink. If your tattoo happens to be on a spot with good circulation — arms, chest, buttocks — you should see pretty quick results. Areas with poor circulation – ankles, fingers — are a bit more of a challenge.

Laser tattoo removal is uncomfortable, but most patients don’t need anesthesia. Depending on the location of your tattoo, you may want to apply a topical anesthesia cream beforehand.

Tattoo Inks

And tattoo inks sometimes contain chemicals like iron oxide or titanium dioxide, which may make them tougher to break up.

You may see slight bleeding, redness, swelling, and blistering for several hours or days following treatment. Over the weeks to follow you may see flaking, peeling, or scabbing of the treated area. Handle the treatment site gently. While the site is healing, you should avoid sun exposure and public swimming pools. Once the skin has completely healed you can undergo another treatment.

The number of treatments depends on your tattoo’s age, size, type, and pigment depth.

Pigments

Laser tattoo removal works by targeting pigment colors in the skin’s dermis, which lies between your outer layer of skin (epidermis) and the tissue beneath. The tattoo pigments absorb the laser’s beam and fragment. Your body then absorbs these fragments and eliminates them.

Though you may see results immediately, more likely you’ll have to have several treatments before a difference shows. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used and how deeply it sits.
