Tattoo Removal Overview
Colorado Skin and Vein has recently added a new laser to our arsenal of technology: the Lumenis QX Max. The Lumenis QX Max is the most powerful and effective tattoo removal device available, and Colorado Skin Care is one of only nine reference sites in the entire country that has it.
Worldwide, tattooing has become a popular trend. In many markets in the world greater than 15% of adults have tattoos. It is estimated that 50% of those receiving tattoos will want to have them removed within 10 years of their application. If you are one of those people looking to have a tattoo removed, this is the treatment you want. It has the capability to remove black and dark blue inks effectively.
How It Works
The laser delivers light of specific wavelengths in ultra-short, very high peak energy pulses which are absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo and result in an acoustic shockwave. The shockwave shatters the pigment particles, releasing them from their encapsulation and breaking them into fragments small enough for removal by the body. These tiny particles are then eliminated by the body. Since the laser light must be absorbed by the pigment particles, the laser wavelength must be selected to match the absorption spectrum of the pigment.
