Tattoos are created by injecting colored pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of whether a tattoo artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks or designs are relatively permanent. When people subsequently want their tattoos removed, most physicians today consider laser tattoo removal one of the best methods.
For years, the Q-switched Nd:YAG has been the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. With the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser available on the Harmony XL PRO laser system, you can effectively treat dark tattoo inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos) and dark blue.
The 532nm KTP laser is often used to treat red, yellow and orange pigments. Harmony XL PRO: The High Power Q-Switched 1064/532nm Module on the Harmony XL PRO produces significantly higher power output than other aesthetic medical laser devices.
High Power Q-Switched module delivers double the amount of energy by way of multiple pulses.
