Tired of your ink? Making way for new ink? Tattoo removal has become quick easy and almost painless with the Alma Q-Switched Nd-YAG laser.
Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors. The high power Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors (black, blue and green), while the 532 nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors (red, orange and yellow).
The mechanical Q-Switched effect works by vibrating and breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo. As the area heals, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
With the use of injectable or topical lidocaine the procedure is almost painless and can be repeated as often as every 6 weeks to fully remove the tattoo. Most tattoos require a minimum of three treatments with some needing 6 or more. The age, location, and color of the tattoo will affect how quickly it can be removed.
Whether you are tired of you tattoo or wanting an ink change, tattoos are no longer permament with Nd-Yag 1064nm and 532nm laser.
