Tattoo Removal

The total number of Americans that have at least one tattoo exceeds 45 million. For multiple reasons, body art may become undesirable. A Q-Switched laser is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. The laser “fractures” the pigment into particles small enough for the ink to be removed using the body’s natural filtering system. The Q-Switched laser can effectively remove an array of tattoo ink colors with minimal risk. (Multiple treatments may be required).

The Spectrum offers 2-different wavelengths (1064nm and 532nm). The 1064nm reduces/removes most dark colored tattoo inks and the 532nm reduces/removes most vibrant colored tattoo inks.
