Removing unwanted tattoos by lasers has become one of the most popular ways to rid tattoos. Cosmetic laser (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation) technology is one of the fastest and most effective ways to rid a tattoo because of its low risk, no downtime, and zero open wound results.
In most states, laser tattoo removal can either be performed by a certified laser tattoo removal technician or medical professional. Your skin care professional will know which laser and settings will be best for your tattoo and skin type.
The type of laser used on your tattoo depends on the color of ink as well as your skin type. At NLI Med Spa, we use advanced Q-switched laser technology to remove tattoos. Within the Q-switched family, there are multiple types of lasers:
- Q-switched Ruby
- Q-switched Alexandrite
- Q-switched Nd: YAG
This technology uses short pulses of high energy that is absorbed by the tattoo’s pigment. That energy is then able to break your tattoo’s ink into tiny, microscopic pieces that are then flushed out through your body’s lymphatic system, eliminating and fading your tattoo to reveal flawless skin.
