Studio South Beach Laser Tattoo Removal
What is Q-Switch YAG Laser treatment??This is a laser procedure in which a beam of light at a specific wavelength is applied to the skin and is absorbed by colored pigments in the skin, including melanin and tattoo pigments.
How many treatments will I need??Light pigmentation like freckles, age spots and sun marks may disappear after a single treatment. Most pigment will disappear after two treatments. ?Tattoo removal will require 2 to 5 treatments depending on the size of the tattoo and the different colors used. It has been observed in about 20% of cases that a dark spot appears once the scab has fallen off after treatment. Normal pigmentation of the skin should be achieved within 2 to 3 months.
Q-Switch YAG lasers deliver very high power but very short pulses of laser light, which pass through the skin and break up the particles of tattoo pigment, which are then destroyed by the body, by white blood cells and the lymphatic system. This is also the reason why tattoos usually fade over time.
Q-Switch YAG laser treatments make the pigment particles small enough to be destroyed much faster. Multiple treatments, given about one month apart are necessary for best results.
