Effective tattoo removal laser equipment

Tattoos are a wonderful form of self-expression, but some people often have a change of heart, and later regret getting inked. When that happens, the most effective way to remove this body art is with laser tattoo removal equipment. Lasers can get rid of tattoos faster, and they are less painful when compared to other methods such as incision.

Lasers are able to reduce the appearance of tattoos, by targeting the tattoo pigments with high energy light. As the pigments absorb the heat, they slowly disintegrate, and they are then passed from the body during normal elimination.

Q-Switched ND: Yag
When it comes to tattoo removal equipment, the Q-Switched ND: Yag is one of the most popular choices. This laser is often chosen because it works on varying skin types, and colors. This is important, as some lasers can remove darker colors only; therefore individuals with bright colored tattoos often have difficulty getting them removed. If you are considering getting a tattoo removed, then be sure to check with the medical practitioner about the type of laser being used.

The Q-Switched ND: Yag by Alma Lasers is equipped with 2 discrete wavelengths. The wavelengths work at different levels, making it possible to fade dark and bright colors. Single wavelength lasers are generally only effective on one color type.

It can take up to 8 sessions to effectively fade a tattoo, as success depends on several factors including the length of time the tattoo has been in place. A newly inked tattoo is generally a lot harder to remove than an older one. An older tattoo is likely to have faded over time and shed some pigments, making it easier to clear.

Tattoo removal has been made a lot easier since laser equipment began being used in the process. However, it will still take some time, due to the factors mentioned.
