Why Choose Laser Tattoo Removal?
Alongside the increasing popularity of tattoos as a form of self-expression in Australia has come a growing demand for tattoo removal services. Previous removal methods have ranged from dermabrasion to surgical excision, but modern laser treatment has proven to be the safest and most effective solution to unwanted body art.
How Does It Work?
The laser removal process involves applying the proper operational wavelength to target the ink particles on the skin. The energy is absorbed preferentially by the ink, causing the pigment to break down into smaller pieces and disperse. While the ink particles are initially too large, the laser treatment makes the particles small enough to be absorbed by the body and eliminated.
An innovative technology for laser tattoo removal is q-switching, which involves the production of pulsed laser energy outputs rather than a continuous beam. This creates a higher peak power, resulting in more effective results. The Spectra XT system from Lutronic utilises the q-switching technique for tattoo removal.
