Tattoos are No Longer Forever
Tattoos can be traced back thousands of years. So can the desire to remove them. Today, while nearly 10% of adults in the United States have tattoos, more than half regret them and would like to have them removed. What looks good at 18 may seem undesirable 20 years later. While viewed one year as self-expression and important to your current life, at a later date the same tattoo can create barriers to employment or no longer be relevant. In addition, as tattoo colors fade and skin looses its youthful elasticity, tattoos may become defacements rather than decorations.
Q-Switched lasers now provide a safe and effective way of removing tattoos. After eliminating tattoos, this laser treatment leaves natural-looking skin.
What Types and Colors of Tattoos can be Removed?
Even bright colors can be removed! The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser, especially suited to removing dark blue and black inks, can be used for the majority of tattoo removals. The frequency doubled Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is used to removed red and orange tattoos.
Cosmetic tattoos such as eye or lip liner can be removed. Even traumatic tattoos resulting from accidents can now be successfully treated.
Safe. Effective. Non-Invasive. Non-Scarring.
The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser delivers light in billionths of a second and at very high energy. Its pulses are absorbed by the tattoo, breaking it into pigment particles small enough for removal by the body.
Using other methods, tattoo removal can be more offensive than the tattoo itself. Other methods include salabrasion and dermabrasion, incisions and skin grafting. These other procedures are painful and typically leave significant scars.
The Q-Switched Nd:YAG is safe, non-invasive, and leaves little or no scarring.
