Tattoo Removal

The AW3® Nd Yag laser can safely and effectively remove tattoos, permanent make up, skin pigmentation such as age spots, sunspots and birthmarks, and also thread veins Tattoo ink particles are too large for the body's immune system to remove naturally because when tattoo pigment is injected into the lower layers of the skin (dermis) it becomes locked away by a wall of collagen fibres. Q-switched lasers produce very short bursts of high energy laser light. The light is absorbed by the large ink particles, generating heat that shatters the tattoo pigment into minute particles which the body is able to remove. Because the tattoo ink selectively absorbs the laser energy, the surrounding skin doesn't overheat and there is no lasting damage to the skin.

 

In principle the laser can remove all kind of tattoos. Since all tattoos are not the same in terms of colour, depth of ink deposition, as well as chemical composition some may respond differently. Black, red dark orange and dark blue tattoos will typically respond better to treatment with laser. However Brown, purple, green, light orange, neon and light blue colours are harder to remove and will require more sessions.
