Use a laser that actually works. Don't waste your money on Groupons or places with lasers that won't give you results. Highly recommend.

Had ulthera and fotonic laser, and it went great. I put it off all through Covid; so glad I finally went for it. Dariane was lovely to work with, and everything went smoothly. Can’t wait to see the final result!

How does laser tattoo removal work?

In summary, the laser beam cooks the ink, breaks it and turns it into very small particles that are later cleared by the immune systems of our body.

Some tattoos may require as much as 20 treatments before they are removed entirely. One of the most challenging tattoos to eliminate is a turquoise tattoo. This is because there is presently no specific laser that can target this color efficiently. But in general, laser tattoo removal may take between six and twelve treatments. This can be spread over some months or even a few years.
The average cost of the Spectra Laser Nanosecond Q-switched treatment range from $200 to $500 for one session. The price of the treatment depends on: The extent and type of tattoo The training and expertise of the surgeon We chart 100 per inch sq inked
Do your research to determine the best tattoo removal option for you. The use of a laser for removing unwanted tattoos has recorded more successes compared to other removal techniques. Once you have made up your mind to go for a Spectra Laser Nanosecond Q-switched treatment, the next thing is to search for a qualified tattoo removal specialist. You should book a consultation with the healthcare professional. The specialist must have been practicing for years and has more than enough experience to answer your questions.
This depends on how many times your tattoo was layered and how deep the pigment is. After the treatment, you can apply an ice pack to the target area to soothe the skin. Expect to see slight leakages of blood, collagen or lymphatic fluids. The area of the skin that receives laser treatment may also swell slightly. You may also experience redness in the target areas and feel some discomfort as well. You may also have to undergo multiple laser treatments for complete removal. However, this depends on the type of pigment used and the way you respond to the laser removal treatment.
The treatment takes between ten to thirty minutes, depending on the location and size of the tattoo. Some tattoos can even fade away completely after one laser treatment. Most laser tattoo removal treatments are spaced three weeks apart. This is to allow your body to get rid of loosened particles of the tattoo pigment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Laser can be used for tattoo removal?

Q-switched Laser tattoo removal has been demonstrated as a viable and patient-friendly methodology with essentially no side effects. Most tattoo procedures take just a few minutes; however, several treatments are commonly necessary to remove a tattoo.

What setting to choose for the tattoo removal Edmonton?

It is important to be aggressive enough to remove the tattoo from the treated area but to keep the surrounding tissues intact. Tattoo colors, the type of tattoo ink, and the age of the tattoo are all factors that we use to decide The laser energy, wavelength, spot size of the laser tattoo removal session.

Does the color of the tattoo affect the efficacy of laser treatment?

The efficacy of the laser treatment depends on the energy of the disruptive acoustic wave created during the interaction between the laser and tattoo color. Laser light energy is absorbed in the tattoo pigment using selective photothermolysis, and the majority of the Nanosecond Q-switched laser pulse is then changed over into acoustic energy. The laser wavelength has to be adjusted to match the tattoo color so that the absorption of the laser light into the tattoo pigment can be maximized.

Why Sky is Blue?

This is also the reason that the sky is blue. At the point when seen from outer space, the sky does not seem blue but rather is clear. The blue color is because of the scattering of the shorter visible wavelengths of light in the blue region by the atmosphere toward our eye. This is the main reason a setting sun appears deep red. Therefore, while treating black tattoos, the longest wavelength possible should be used while treating patients with dull skin types, such as Fitzpatrick skin types V and VI. When using longer wavelengths, the melanin pigment in the surface of the skin will absorb less of the laser energy limiting epidermal damage, whereas the black tattoo should absorb these wavelengths almost similarly.

Which of the Q-switched lasers generate the most powerful acoustic wave in tattoo removal?

Considering today’s commercial laser technology, Q-switched lasers in the nanosecond remain the most powerful in producing acoustic waves. Any shielding of the tattoo color by plasma formation in the air or extensive scattering in the skin may dramatically reduce the absorption in the pigment and its general conversion into the acoustic energy. Quickly after each Nanosecond Q-switched treatment, an articulated whitening occurs as a result of pressure-induced microdamage and increased dermal intercellular fluid flow. It is a typical skin response with a shielding impact that results in irrelevant efficacy for additional consecutive pulses.

What is laser treatment based upon?

The treatment is based on a process of pigment disintegration caused by strong acoustic waves created amid the connection between extremely short Nanosecond Q-switched laser pulses (of a few nanoseconds duration) and the tattoo pigment particles which makes it easy for colored tattoo particles to be easily removed by the body’s immune system.

How long should the interval between sessions be?

A three-week interval between sessions is required to enable the pigment residue to be cleared by the body. The underlying pigment separation is just a single stage in its successful removal. Several mechanisms are assumed possible. The smaller fragments might be phagocytosed and subsequently dispensed with by the lymphatic system.

Is one wavelength is enough?

In addition to variations in color, tattoos may end up resistant to specific wavelengths of light in a way similar to bacteria getting to be resistant to antibiotics. Thus, various wavelengths of light might be required to remove even the simplest of colors to treat, such as black, with insignificant or no scarring. Shorter wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation disperse more than longer wavelengths. This even applies to electromagnetic radiation such as x-rays. This is the reason why a more noteworthy dosage of radiation might be required to evacuate a skin cancer while treating with a smaller field of radiation than when using a bigger one.

How does the duration and energy of the laser affect tattoo removal?

Aside from the laser’s wavelength, the duration and energy of the laser pulse are the most imperative parameters. They characterize the peak pressure of the laser-induced acoustic wave in the tattoo pigment.  Which laser pulses are required for the conversion of laser light to acoustic wave? To shield the surrounding tissue from the heat and to accomplish the viable conversion of the absorbed laser light into the acoustic wave, extremely short laser pulses are required.

Why Q-switch nanosecond laser?

With short nanosecond pulse durations, Q-switched lasers have upset the treatment of tattoos. Nevertheless, the mechanisms for clinically observed tattoo clearance are still not understood. Two mechanisms have been proposed: a thermal impact where tattoo particles are heated to sufficiently high temperatures to cause chemical changes inside the particles and the surrounding cells; and a mechanical discontinuity of the particles because of extremely fast changes in the particles’ temperature. Theoretically, the two mechanisms should be more successful in shorter pulse durations. It is for this motive that sub-nanosecond, (e.g., 0.75 – 0.9 nanoseconds) tattoo-removal lasers, have as of late pulled in considerable interest.
