Q-switched nd yag laser
Invisible infrared light that delivers specific wavelengths of light extremely quickly in nano-seconds at a very high energy.
These pulses are selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment, shattering it into tiny fragments small enough for the body to recognise the particles as a foreign object & over the next several weeks some of the particles will be discharged & some in deeper tissue will be absorbed & digested by the macrophages to be removed by the body’s immune system. Pigment will thus be removed with little / no scarring.
Removal of all colour tattoos until clear
(black, brown, red, orange, pink)
Yag laser is also highly effective to break up & discharge dermal pigmentation.
Removal of red & brown birthmarks / benign skin lesions / sun induced hyper pigmentation until clear
