Here are three pictures of Kevin's treatment so far:
Our laser uses a mechanical action as well as heat to blast the ink pigments within the tattoo into tiny particles.
The laser tattoo removal machine uses two wavelengths: 1064nm and 532nm (nanometres.) Between the two wavelengths, they can remove all colours except green, yellow, fluorescent, purple and metallic.
Your body's immune system or lymphatic system will then remove these particles naturally. The laser doesn't destroy the skin or leave any scarring.
Recent developments in Q-switch Nd:YAG laser therapy have finally made it possible to remove tattoos with minimal risk of scarring. The laser light is beamed through the skin in extremely short pulses (nanoseconds.)
The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink, creating a photo-mechanical reaction, breaking it down into very small particles. This allows the body's defence mechanism to gradually remove the fragmented pigment over time.
