How does laser tattoo removal work?

· Uncategorized · Comments Off on How does laser tattoo removal work?

At Tri-County Laser, we use the Cynosure RevLite – Q-Switched Nd:YAG, which utilizes PhotoAcoustic technology to gently vibrate and shatter the targeted ink or pigment molecule deep within the skin.  This laser is very different from other lasers that rely on heat-based or photo-thermal energy.  Because PhotoAcoustic energy is quickly absorbed, treatment is extremely safe with virtually no risk of damage to the surrounding skin.

Tattoo removal is typically completed in 5-7 treatments, but the age of the tattoo, and colors are a factor in how many sessions will be needed.  Contact us today for a free consultation! 843-580-3702
