Tattoo Removal

The history of decorative tattooing dates back thousands of years. The desire to remove them has probably existed just as long. Early attempts to remove tattoos have had less than desirable results. The advent of Q-Switched lasers has permitted the removal of tattoo inks with a very low risk profile. The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser available with the IPL Quantum platform is especially suited to the removal of dark blue and black inks and extends the clinical capabilities of this very versatile system.

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser affords the physician an affordable, effective upgrade either purchased with your system or added later to expand the versatility of the IPL Quantum system to include laser treatment of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.

The simplicity and reliability of the IPL Quantum platform

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser delivers light of specific wavelengths in ultra-short (nanosecond = 10-9 seconds) very high peak energy pulses which are absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo and result in an acoustic shockwave. The shockwave shatters the pigment particles, releasing them from their encapsulation and breaking them into fragments small enough for removal by the body.

These tiny particles are then eliminated by the body. Since the laser light must be absorbed by the pigment particles, the laser wavelength must be selected to match the absorption spectrum of the pigment. Q-Switched 1064 nm lasers are best suited for treating dark blue and black tattoos.

For Your Practice

It is estimated that 50% of those receiving tattoos will want to have them removed within 10 years of their application. This is a large and rapidly growing market. The IPL Quantum with the Q-Switched 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser upgrade allows you to effectively treat patients with black and dark blue tattoos effectively. This builds additional versatility as an adjunct to your cosmetic practice and the capabilities of your IPL Quantum system. In this ever-growing market, the ability to provide superior versatility, treatment efficacy and natural-looking skin are genuine patient benefits.
