We use latest ND YAG Q-Switched lasers to deliver the most advanced tattoo removal treatment in the area. In Q-switched mode, ND YAG produces two wavelengths to treat superficial skin lesions.
Q-switch refers to the technique of making the laser produce a high beam in very short pulses - machines without this function cannot provide the desired result as they're not powerful enough to shatter the tattoo.
When the ND YAG Q-switched laser comes into contact with a tattoo, the laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink, creating a photo acoustic shock-wave that releases the heat from the tattoo and shatters it into minute particles. This is known as photo mechanical effect. The particles are then carried away by the macrophages and leave the body through the lymphatic system.
Body Perfection treats multiple types of tattoos including professional and amateur tattoos in black or colour, as well as semi-permanent eye make-up, and is suitable for all skin types. Usually, a number of treatments will be needed to remove colour tattoos.
