Tattoos are no longer forever since we have a Q-Switched Nd : Yag Laser !!!
How does the Q-Switched laser work?
Q Switched Nd: YAG lasers offer significant advantages over previous methods for tattoo removal, and are presently
the treatment choice for tattoo removal. Q-Switched creates a photo acoustic shock wave to shatter the ink particles,
uses a sapphire to hold back the laser energy which builds up an enormous power before being released in very short burst. This makes the pulse duration nano seconds or even pico seconds. Reducing the pulse energy will increase
the strength at the same energy.
Q-switched system will release a loud cracking sound when the photo acoustic shock wave is absorbed by the tattoo ink. The shock waves have a photo mechanical effect, causing the ink particles
to fracture in mini explosions. As the tattoo ink fragments, particles
are rejected from fibres surrounding
Is it safe?
Q-switched laser technology offers high efficiency at very low risk. It enables effective tattoo removal
with little chance of side effects
Treatment - What to expect?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate Q-switched tattoo treatment well, and describe
the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. Most patients require no anaesthesia , though topical aesthetic
is an option.
