Our Q-switched ND Yag laser is our advanced laser which can target most multi coloured tattoos, including dark colours.
Our laser gently penetrates through the skin so it can target the tattoo pigment. The light energy gently vibrates and shatters the tattoo ink into micro-particles that are eventually eliminated through the body’s natural processes. Because the laser delivers the energy in a highly precise beam the design is able to be traced without damaging the surrounding skin.
On average, professional tattoos require 8-10 treatments or even more, while amateur tattoos require 6-8 treatments approximately 5 weeks apart.
The number of treatments depends on the type of ink used and depth of the ink in the skin.
The skin maybe red or swollen after treatment, similar to mild sunburn. The treated area should be kept clean and an antibacterial ointment can be used after treatment.
