Safe and Effective Tattoo Removal with Q-Switch Laser

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. That is, unless you had one too many, visited a late-night tattoo parlor and brought home a very permanent souvenir. Over 45 million Americans have been tattooed and 16% of them (over 7 million people) regret their ink. Maybe your tattoo is uneven or faded. Maybe the design is no longer on-trend. Maybe it doesn’t fit with your new career. Whatever the reason, if you’ve been considering tattoo removal, RevitalizeMaui is here for you!

All aesthetic lasers are not created equal. The Q-switch laser is the only one of its kind proven to safely remove tattoos without scarring. Early laser tattoo removal treatments were reserved only for black or dark blue inks, often resulted in scarring and unpredictable results, and were quite painful. New science has incorporated the virtually painless Q-Switch laser into tattoo removal. The laser beam pulses of a Q-switch laser last billionths of a second, resulting in a very powerful concentration of energy emitted. These powerful and short pulses are able to break apart small fragments of tattoo ink without affecting the surrounding skin. The ink is then flushed out by the body’s immune system, resulting in a faded tattoo over a series of treatments.

Q-switch lasers can effectively remove tattoos of all colors on a wide range of skin types and the qualifications for this treatment are simple – you are an ideal candidate for Q-switch laser tattoo removal if you have a tattoo that you want removed.

Consultations are always recommended prior to booking your treatment to ensure that you are a good candidate for laser tattoo removal. Some considerations to keep in mind when booking your tattoo removal treatment:

  • Size of the tattoo. Larger tattoos will potentially require more treatments.
  • Depth of the tattoo. Some older methods of tattooing used a “heavy hand”, resulting in a deeper ink deposit in the skin. Tattoos in this style may be more difficult to target and remove with the laser.  
  • Types of ink used. Tattoo inks are not regulated by the FDA and can contain a variety of elements – including soot, sulphur, lithium, and lead. High-quality inks are more difficult to remove. 
  • Skin color. The Q-switch laser is approved on all skin tones and types. However, tanned skin should be allowed to return to its natural color before being treated. 

What Happens During the Tatoo Removal Treatment?

During your tattoo removal treatment, the Q-switch laser pulses light energy into the tattoo. The laser energy pulses are absorbed by the tattoo ink particles and those particles are heated up and then split into smaller fragments that are flushed away by the immune system over the following days and weeks. Each treatment breaks down more and more of the tattoo ink, resulting in a permanently faded and removed tattoo. 

Just like your tattoo, removal results are permanent. The number of treatments required varies, as do the results, and depend on various factors such as depth of tattoo, size, skin color and quality of the tattoo. 

What Do I Need to Do Before and After Procedure?

Unprotected sun exposure should be avoided for at least two weeks before your appointment. After your laser tattoo removal treatment, strenuous exercise and alcohol should be avoided for 24 hours. Excessive sun exposure should be avoided for at least one week and daily use of at least SPF 30 is highly recommended.

Is this Treatment Safe? What are the Possible Side Effects?

While the Q-Switch laser is generally a safe and effective treatment for tattoo removal, adverse reactions can rarely occur. The most common side effects include hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering at the treatment area, scarring and darkening of the tattoo being treated. All patients will be provided with detailed post-care instructions.
