Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colours with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest colour to treat. Other colours can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.
The AW3® Nd Yag laser can safely and effectively remove tattoos, permanent make up. Our Q-switched laser 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. This treatment is not suitable for clients with a darker skin tone.
