Laser Tattoo Removal results in the permanent removal or dramatic fading of unwanted tattoos.
Sparsh Aestheticsis the first skin clinic in Ludhiana to offer treatments from the Jeisys Tri-Beam dual wavelength laser (Q-switched 1064nm and 523nm). This highly advanced technology delivers clients greater levels of comfort and significantly fewer treatment sessions than virtually all alternative tattoo removal devices. This revolutionary new laser tattoo removal technology quickly, safely and effectively removes a wide variety of tattoo colours.
Tattoos are permanent because the ink particles deposited in the skin are too large for the body to remove. Laser Tattoo Removal works by firing a very, short pulse of laser energy over the treatment area. This incredibly rapid pulse causes fragmentation of the ink particles within the skin, making them small enough for the body’s immune cells to carry away. Significant fading can been seen even after just one session with the Tri-Beam.
This state of the art technology ensures treatments are incredibly fast. For example, a small tattoo (the size of a 50c coin) would take approximately 5-6 seconds to treat.
Follow-up treatments are performed approximately every 6-12 weeks. The number of treatments required depends on the location and colour of the tattoo, as well as the overall heath of the individual and their immune system. Most tattoos will require somewhere between 5-9 sessions.
The Tri-Beam provides treatments that are far more comfortable than previous generations of laser tattoo removal machines. Anaesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment and the skin is numbed even further by super-cooled air that is directed onto the skin throughout the treatment via a specialised attachment.
Following the treatment, patients can expect to experience some mild warmth and tingling in the area. An occlusive dressing is applied and should remain in place for 2 days before being changed. At this point clients may notice some slight crusting and occasionally bruising. They will also notice fading and blurring of the tattoo lines.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Advanced Technology Meets Smart Skincare
Laser tattoo removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that is safe, effective, and only takes minutes to perform.
Have you ever seen an old tattoo that is partially faded? Tattoos naturally fade over time because the body’s immune system recognizes that tattoo ink is a foreign substance and tries to remove ink particles.
Laser tattoo removal speeds up the natural process by shattering tattoo ink into smaller pieces that flush away more easily.
Tattoo Ink and Skin
Tattoo ink is trapped in the deepest layer of the skin. When tattoos are applied, ink particles are inserted with a needle into varying depths of this bottom layer.
When tattoo removal laser light is applied to the skin, it heats up and shatters the ink that it reaches first within the skin. In other words, the shallowest layers of ink are removed before the deepest layers.
It takes multiple treatments to penetrate through all of the varying depths of ink in a tattoo. If a tattoo is particularly dark or bold, it will require more treatments to remove the ink compared to shaded tattoos with a lower density of ink.
Shattering the Ink
Tattoo removal is an advanced procedure because tattoo ink needs to be heated at very high temperatures to shatter, yet high temperatures usually cause skin to scar. Tri-Beam laser systems feature a sophisticated technology, Q-switching, that effectively breaks down ink without scarring.
Tri-Beam Q-switched laser systems feature amazingly short laser pulses that only last for nanoseconds (billionths of a second).
Because the laser pulse is so brief, the power is high enough to shatter the ink. But, because the energy is in the skin for such a short period of time, there is no risk of damage to the skin.
