Tattoo Removal Q & A

CN Medical Aesthetics

What is tattoo removal?

Painting of the human body goes back to the beginning of recorded history, and thus the removal of unwanted tattoos has probably been around that long as well. The variety of techniques used to apply tattoos is staggering; the source of the ink, where on the body the tattoo is applied, colors and designs used, even the depth into the skin can vary dramatically. Thus the approach that the practitioner faces to remove tattoos must take into account that every person and every tattoo that is unique.

How does Lutronics Q-Switched Laser work?

Removal of tattoos depends on the principle of selective photothermolysis; when the proper wavelength is applied the ink absorbs the energy preferentially, causing it to break down. The body's natural healing processes remove broken down pigment over time. Surrounding tissue is largely unaffected, but not entirely spared, so tattoo removal is typically uncomfortable for patients. Numerous sessions are required to maximize results.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Q-switched laser is the most commonly used device for tattoo removal.  Modulation of treatment parameters allows users to customize treatment based on the condition and skin type of the individual patient, to maximize results as well as manage patient comfort and the potential for side effects.   The 1064nm wavelength Nd:YAG is recognized as the safest choice for the treatment of darker skin types, however, special care must be taken due to the increased potential for burning or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
