Why q-Switch Nd:YAG Laser?
Tattoos are placed for different reasons. A technique for tattoo removal which produces selective removal of each tattoo pigment, with minimal risk of scarring, is needed.
Non-specific methods have a high incidence of scarring, textural, and pigmentation alterations compared with the use of Q-switched lasers.
With new advances in Q-switched laser technology, tattoo removal can be achieved with minimal risk of scarring and permanent pigmentation alteration.
Who is Eligible?
There are five types of tattoos: amateur, professional, cosmetic, medicinal, and traumatic. Amateur tattoos require less treatment sessions than professional multi-colored tattoos.
Things to Consider
Other factors to consider when evaluating tattoos for removal are: location, age and the skin type of the patient. Treatment should begin by obtaining a pre-operative history.
