For a tattoo removal to be successful, there are two main criteria: It should be as pain-free and hassle-free as possible, and it should produce the results the client is looking for. But for these things to happen, you need the right tools. 

Enter the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser. 

This state-of-the-art laser is just the powerful solution you are looking for if you want to get rid of those unwanted tattoos quickly and painlessly, leaving you with nothing less than what you want. 

The Tattoo Removal Process

To understand how the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser works, you need to know how a tattoo functions in the first place. 

Tattoos are formed by injecting ink particles into the dermal layer of your skin, creating the colorful masterpiece you love. However, times change, minds change, and what you once considered a work of art may become something you’d rather forget. 

Since the ink from your tattoo is deep within your skin, removing them is no easy feat. To remove the tattoo, a laser is used to break down the ink particles in the dermal layer. Once those particles are broken down, the body naturally absorbs and removes them through its usual filtration system. 

That’s why tattoo removal requires the best tools and patience, as it is not a one-and-done task. You need to give the laser a chance to break up the whole tattoo and you need to give your body time to do its thing. 

Introducing the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser

When it comes to the best tools for the job, look no further than the Q-Switched Nd: YAG, the most advanced Q-Switched laser yet. 

This laser does the job by emitting high-intensity light pulses in short durations of literally nanoseconds. This rapid energy release is key to breaking down even the most stubborn ink particles in your skin. 

The results? Happier skin because the laser’s specific wavelength targets just the pigment, not the surrounding skin, and better results with even greens and blues, the hardest colors to remove. 

Advantages of the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser

There are many reasons to seek a tattoo removal process that uses the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser. Just some of the advantages you’ll see over other lasers include:

  • Better Precision

The Q-Switched laser has superior pinpoint precision. What does that mean? It means it precisely targets the ink particles you want to remove and leaves the surrounding skin unharmed.

  • Better Results

Because of its powerful performance, you don’t have to worry about certain ink colors staying behind, or breaking the bank on so many visits because of those stubborn colors. While greens and blues tend to be the most stubborn, they’re still no match for this powerful tool. 

  • Better Recovery

Better than “better,” actually. Your recovery will be nothing at all. After a Q-Switched Nd laser treatment, you can walk out the door and get right back to your regular routine. No inflammation, no ice packs, no avoiding the sun required. 

Preparing for Your Tattoo Removal Appointment with the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser

Before your appointment, there are a couple of things you should do to ensure you get the most out of your treatment and finished results:

  1. Minimize your exposure to UV rays as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  2. Remove all makeup, creams, or oils before treatment to give the laser a nice, clean surface to work on. 

One of the best things about the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser is that your aftercare instructions are minimal. You might feel slight discomfort after, similar to a mild sunburn. Keep the treatment area clean and protect it from the sun during the healing process. Your skin will gradually shed those broken-down ink particles, revealing the tattoo-free results you want!
