What It is
Almost half of the millennials today have at least one tattoo, but not everyone is completely satisfied with their decision. Almost a quarter of people with tattoos regret getting it but thankfully, laser tattoo removal with the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser is a safe and effective method to get rid of your tattoo with virtually no side effects or down time.
How It’s Treated
Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser
The Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser treatment is effective in the removal of multi-coloured tattoos due to its selective 532 and 1064 nm wavelength. It works by breaking up and breaking down the pigment in the skin with its high-intensity light beam and the wavelength required to do this depends on the colour of the tattoo. While black pigment is the easiest to remove due to its ability to absorb all laser wavelengths, other colours may require higher intensities. At The Centre for Dermatology, our team evaluate your tattoo and provide you with recommendations on the process during your consultation. The total number of treatments required will vary depending on the size, age, and colour(s) of the tattoo.
