The Q-Switched Laser Tattoo Removal Process
Laser tattoo removal is the only method proven to remove tattoos without scarring. To remove a tattoo, the Q-Switched laser is pulsed over the tattoo, directing its light energy towards the ink. The energy is absorbed by the ink particles which then shatter into tiny fragments.
In the days following the laser procedure, the body’s immune system will flush away the shattered ink particles and cause the tattoo to fade. With more treatments, more ink will be shattered leaving the skin free of the tattoo.
Only Q-Switched lasers are able to produce the amount of energy to remove both dark and bright tattoos without scarring.
