Laser tattoo removal with the Q-Switched treatment at Seriously Skin, Cosmetic and Laser Medicine, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

Laser tattoo removal before

Tattoos are permanent, and many do not believe they will ever fall “out of love” with the ink on their body. However, patients often regret their tattoos and want to learn about laser tattoo removal. Seriously Skin, Cosmetic and Laser Medicine provides laser tattoo removal with one of the most advanced Q-switched technologies, QX MAX. This powerful laser can remove common ink colors and pigmented lesions.

There are many advantages to using the QX MAX laser for tattoo removal. This system offers five laser sources and uses the highest single-pulse energy available for effective treatment.

Laser tattoo removal with the Fotona QX MAX Q-Switched laser:

The QX MAX laser:

  • Has four wavelengths to cover all ink colors
  • Uses 532nm, the gold standard for removing red ink
  • Uses 585nm to remove blue ink
  • Uses 650nm, the gold standard for removing green ink
  • Uses 1064nm, the gold standard for removing black ink. This wavelength is also highly absorbed by black, so it’s easy for the QX MAX to do its work and do so without complications of hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation
  • Uses pulses with great speed at five nanoseconds

Here are some common recommendations before the first laser tattoo removal treatment:

Laser tattoo removal after

  • Reduce or avoid using self-tanning products, tanning beds, and sun exposure for approximately two weeks before the visit. Utilizing SPF30 broad-spectrum sunscreen is recommended.
  • Remove jewelry from the treatment area.
  • Patients may need to undergo several sessions to effectively remove the tattoo. Patients cannot expect optimum results just after one treatment, as the laser must break up the ink over time.
  • After treatment, patients are encouraged to follow the instructions given by their provider for aftercare. The area may become white and swollen and result in minor pinpoint bleeding. Crusting and blistering may also occur, but all of this should heal within a week. The area treated should receive the same care and attention as a mild burn, and nothing should be applied to the wound for the first day. After this point, patients can use laser balm on the area to help it heal, which may take two weeks. Patients should avoid breaking the blisters, shaving, sun exposure, hot tubs, and pools until the area has fully healed.
