What is Laser tattoo removal?
The Q Switched Nd:YAG is a type of laser technology used in removing tattoos.
How Does It Work?
The laser is applied to the tattooed area of the skin, and the light is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles,which absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles.
In the days and weeks following a laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade. Over a series of treatments, more and more of the ink shatters, leaving the skin free of ink.
What Are The Side Effects?
Side effects of the laser tattoo treatment include discomfort (minimized with a numbing cream and skin cooling),redness of the skin,blistering,changes in skin pigmentation, and rarely scarring.
Multiple sessions are required for desired results.
