At Body Perfection using the latest ND YAG Q-Switched lasers we can deliver the best tattoo removal in the area.
ND YAG stands for neodymium doped yttrium aluminium garnet, which is a crystal that is used as a medium for laser treatments.
In Q-switched mode , ND YAG produces two wave lengths which is useful for superficial skin lesions. Q switch refers to the technique of making the laser produce a high beam in very short pulses. Machines that are not Q switch cannot provide the desired result as they are not powerful enough to shatter the tattoo.
When ND YAG Q switched comes into contact with a tattoo the laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink, it creates a photo acoustic shock wave that releases the heat from the tattoo and shatters it into minute particles. When this response shatters the particles this is known as photo mechanical effect. When the particles are shattered they are able to be carried to away by the macrophages and leave the body through the lymphatic system.
The macrophages transport the ink particles out of the body through the lymphatic system. This then leaves the body through the kidneys into the urine.
