We use the state-of-the-art laser platform to perform laser tattoo removal. The platform is a Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser, the same type we use for laser hair removal because it’s so gentle, and because it can remove a wide variety of tattoo colors, while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The laser works by emitting intense light at the wavelength of 532 nm and 1064 nm, in short bursts, which is what Q-Switched refers to. These pulses of laser light pass through the top layers of the skin to reach the tattoo’s ink, which absorbs the light. This breaks the ink up into tiny particles. Your body can then eliminate the dispersed ink naturally, much in the same way it eliminates toxins and excess fluids. The Q-Switched laser can target a veritable rainbow of colors, though it works best on darker colors such as black and blue. Lighter colors such as green and yellow can also be targeted effectively, but may require more sessions to fully eliminate.
