YAG LASER TATTOO AND SUNSPOT REMOVAL

Experience the Benefits of YAG Laser Treatment for a Wide Range of Skin Concerns

What are the benefits?

YAG laser treatment is commonly used to remove tattoos by breaking down the pigment in the tattooed skin. The laser emits a high-energy beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo, breaking it into smaller particles. These particles are then absorbed by the body’s natural processes and eliminated.

Is YAG laser treatment effective for removing all tattoo colors?

YAG laser treatment may not be effective for removing all tattoo colors. The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the specific wavelengths of light used and the absorption properties of the tattoo pigment.

How Does It Work?

During the treatment, the laser is directed at the tattooed area in short bursts. The laser energy is absorbed by the tattoo pigment, breaking it down into smaller particles. The laser’s energy also heats up the surrounding tissue, which can help to minimize the risk of scarring.

How many treatments do I need?

It is important to note that multiple treatments are usually required to fully remove a tattoo. The number of treatments needed will depend on the size, color, and depth of the tattoo, as well as the patient’s skin type and the type of laser used. It is also important to note that YAG laser treatment may not be effective for removing all tattoo colors.
