Tattoo Removal

Spectrum Q-Switched Yag

The Spectrum offers 2-different wavelengths (1064nm and 532nm). The 1064nm reduces/removes most dark colored tattoo inks and the 532nm reduces/removes most vibrant colored tattoo inks.

 

How The Spectrum Q-Switched Yag Works

  • Targets tattoo pigment in epidermis and in the dermis
  • The Q-Switched Laser “fractures” pigment into particles small enough for macrophages to remove from treatment site to lymph nodes
     

     

 

Q-Switched Nd: YAG Mechanism

The Spectrum Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser is attracted to and interacts with the tattoo ink particles

 

 

 

Photo-Acoustic Shock

Using high-intensity photo-acoustic shock waves, the Spectrum Q-Switched Yag Laser shatters the tattoo ink into tiny fragments.
