Frequent Ask Questions
1. Can you treat all colours?
No. Light is measured in nanometres and there are two wavelengths of light that are emitted from this laser C one is invisible infrared light (1064nm) and the other is visible green light (532nm). The infrared wavelength is preferably absorbed into black and dark blue inks, whereas the green light is absorbed by red ink. It is possible to treat some other colours although white, yellow and bright colours are difficult. This is not usually a problem however, as lighter colours cover very easily. If you wish to cover-up an existing tattoo then the darker colours will be faded or removed, allowing you greater choice of size and colour of the cover- up design you choose.
2. Will the tattoo be removed in one treatment?
No, that is very unlikely. The light can only shatter a certain amount ink in one treatment, so several treatments are needed at 4-6 weekly intervals to work through the layers. You will notice the tattoo fades
more and more with every treatment you have. A test patch will be performed before a full session goes ahead to check how you react to the treatment. A professional tattoo can take between 4 C 5 treatments and sometimes only take 1 or 2. There are several factors that influence the number of treatments required, these can be down to how easily you heal, how deep the ink is in the skin, and the types of ink that were used. Generally speaking the longer you have had the tattoo and the darker it is, the easier it is to remove.
3. What happens to my skin after treatment?
The immediate after effect of the treatment is that the skin turns temporarily white, this is due to water evaporation and disappears with an hour or two. The skin also swells and feels like mild sunburn, this
usually disappears within 24-48 hours. It may blister too. The body continues to remove ink after the treatment and the skin is usually back to normal within a few days.
4. Are there any side affects?
Sometimes if you use too high energy, bleeding and/or blistering can occur. Especially for lady's skin, very weak. So you just need to use the energy that can make the tattoos become white, begin from our original energy.
5. Will the laser treatment scarmy skin?
No. If bleeding or blistering does occur it is very important not to pick any scabs that may result when the skin is healing C this could cause scarring, and should be avoided as scar tissue can make further treatments more difficult.
How it work
The Q-switched ND: YAG laser delivers light of specific wavelengths with high energy which are absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo and result in a shockwave. The shockwave shatters the pigment particles, releasing them from their encapsulation and breaking them into fragments small enough for removal by the body. These tiny particles are then eliminated by the body. Since this specific wavelength can only be absorbed by pigment particles, no injury to skin and normal tissues will occur.

Make sure whether the clients’ skin is keloid skin, and learn whether they have purified their eyebrows, pigment with other means.
Explain to client that after riding of pigment still having pigment trace left which previously caused by sunburn.
Let clientele know that even after riding of the black and blue pigments still having brown and red left for the presence of composite painting material.
Better shave the client’s eyebrow for easy operating before the treatment.
