No Regrets with Q-Switched Laser Tattoo Removal
It is highly difficult to painlessly get rid of from unwanted tattoos. Scars are left behind after most of tattoo removal operation and these are highly painful. Q-Switched laser tattoo removal treatment is one of the most effective yet painless methods and its probability to leave scar is extremely low. AP Clinique offers efficient solutions for tattoo removal with Q-Switched laser operation.
Q-Switched Laser Tattoo Removal
Q-Switched laser tattoo removal operation shatters tattoo ink thanks to several nanosecond rays emitted under the skin. Since the ink shattered by absorbing the whole energy of rays, surrounding cells are not affected.
The cells constituting the tattoo ink are far smaller than the other cells on the skin. Laser size to be applied during operation is adjusted according to the size of ink cells. Since the other cells on the skin are larger, nanosecond rate of laser beams prevents skin texture to get warm and damage. During this process, only the tattoo ink gets warm and shatters. Shattered inks are naturally excreted by immune system of the body.
