While more and more people are opting to get tattoos placed on their bodies, we’ve also noticed an increase in the number of patients requesting tattoo removal services. Here at Contura Cosmetic Clinic, we utilize the most advanced laser available in the treatment of tattoo removal.
The Q-switched YAG laser removes tattoo ink with the energy of light. The absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to destruct. The ink is then removed by the body’s natural filtering system. Q switching, sometimes known as giant pulse formation, is a technique where a laser can be made to produce a pulsed output beam. This method has proven to be effective in removing unwanted ink marks on a person’s body.
Modern advances in tattoo removal
Long gone are the early days of tattoo removal where you had to endure painful sessions, all for the hope of removing some of the ink. The latest advances in tattoo removal laser treatment, provide our patients with unparalleled results. The Q-switched YAG laser does what so many other tattoo removal methods fail to accomplish – it removes tattoos without scarring.
Before you undergo your tattoo removal procedure, it’s absolutely imperative that you talk with your doctor and/or dermatologist to determine any potential side effects that you may endure as a result of the treatment. Different types of tattoos (including ink coloring, the quality of the tattoo, and the duration of time that has passed since the tattoo was placed on your body), can all impact the effectiveness of any laser treatment. Your dermatologist will talk you through these concerns and steps.
