Laser tattoo removal is the only clinically-proven method of removing a tattoo without causing scarring.
This was designed to create ultra-short pulses of light energy that shatter ink in a tattoo.
During a tattoo removal procedure, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. The light is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue and chromophores unharmed. The tattoo ink particles absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles.
In the days and weeks following a laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade
Decades of clinical research have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers for tattoo removal and other epidermal and dermal pigmentation removal treatments. Q-switching, flat top beams, variable spot sizes, and many other technical features of Astanza systems are greatly favored by the medical community.
Astanza’s Duality and Revolution lasers represent the peak of tattoo removal technology. The below studies show the powerful results possible with such quality Q-switched Nd:YAG technology.
