How Do I Remove a Tattoo?

Removing a tattoo requires a laser to remove ink from the skin while preserving the surrounding tissue. Using a Q-switched laser such as the NaturaLase QS causes a beam of light energy to interact with pockets of ink in the skin that comprise the tattoo. A "photo-acoustic" event occurs and light breaks apart the ink into smaller particles, small enough for the body to absorb. This process is repeated 4-8 times for full removal.

What Exactly Is Going on Here?

Tattoo pigment in the skin is considered a very deep target. Tattoo ink creates "pockets" between the dermis and epidermis, which are deeper targets than others (sun damage, facial vessels), and which can be difficult to treat deeper pigment in skin (melasma). To fully remove a tattoo, we need help from the healing system in the skin. The edema and swelling from tattoo removal treatment create a "wound healing response" in skin to absorb the smaller ink particles that result from treatment. The tattoo then begins to fade.

To complicate matters, different colors react in different ways. Black ink and darker colors are easier to remove with less post treatment healing required. More colorful tattoos will have longer healing times. Wavelengths used to remove more colorful inks interact more aggressively with the skin.

Technique Matters

The laser tattoo removal procedure needs to start with low energy, which is increased in each successive treatment

  • Don't overtreat
  • R20 still being investigated and is not the "home run" we are all hoping for

You also will want to avoid any epidermal disruption. This increases the potential for complication and long-term pigmentation issues

Technology Matters

Your tattoo removal laser must be a high energy system:

  • 1J pulse energy or better
  • There are four different manufactures active in the US market, only two that are manufactured in USA

The laser also needs to be "Active QS" vs. "Passive QS"

  • Active QS: a single pulse technology that delivers all energy in one pulse
  • Passive QS: electronically generated pulses that are delivered in a pulse train, often made in China, not clinically effective, and very cheap (in all senses of the word)

Lastly, multiple wavelengths are needed to remove multi-color tattoos.

NaturaLase QS Tattoo Removal Laser

The NaturaLase QS tattoo removal laser is the highest energy Q-switched system in the world. Take advantage of four Q-switched wavelengths in one system. Wavelengths include 1064, 532, 585, and 650 nm.
