Q-Switching creates a pulsed laser beam of higher peak power. By using a pulsed laser, the higher energy of the laser creates a “photo-mechanical” effect on skin pigmentation as well as tattoo inks and pigments. The pulsed laser safely ‘breaks’ the small particles comprising the tattoo or skin lesion.
Our body’s immune system can then dispose of these small particles. The Ultralase Q-Switched Nd YAG Laser has two wavelengths in one laser, these are: 532nm and 1064nm Nd:YAG. These wavelengths add flexibility to the treatment options for tattoo as well as for the skin blemishes and lesions that the Q-Switch Laser has been engineered to remove.
Get Your Tatts Out has chosen the Q-Switch Laser for its proven effectiveness arising from the combination of high power and nanosecond pulses that deliver peak energy throughout the layers of the epidermis faster than the normal relaxation time of the tissue. The result is a safe, effective way to control the laser energy and safely achieve desired results.
