To remove a tattoo the process requires a professional medical laser to turn a permanent situation into something of the past. The energy from the laser slowly and gradually breaks down the ink in the tattoo, to allow the tattoo to slowly fade away over a series of treatments.
At Harmony Aesthetics Center Med Spa, we utilize the Alma Q-Switch laser to permanently remove the tattoo. The energy from the Q-Switch laser produces short, yet powerful pulses of energy that penetrate through the skin’s upper layer targeting and breaking down the tattoo's color pigments without any harm to the skin. The laser energy from Q-Switch shatters the color pigments in the tattoo into small nano-sized particles. The particles are removed gradually by the bodies natural metabolism process and the lymphatic drainage system. The tattoo will fade over time but will require a series of treatments.
