With this removal, we first worked to break down the heavier black ink outline. This helped to set the groundwork for future sessions with the PicoWay®. The PicoWay® is the only Picosecond laser to utilize a 730 wavelength. While the 1064 wavelength is the most common for black ink removal, certain inks can respond better to the 730 wavelength due to the chemical composition of the tattoo ink. We used both the 1064 and 730 modalities for the line-work on this tattoo, while also using the 532 wavelength to reduce the appearance of the yellow ink. Our laser tattoo removal technicians are trained extensively to choose the correct laser for your skin.
To address the pre-existing scar tissue and ink encapsulated within it, the technician also utilized micro-needling treatments. This causes a mechanical breakdown of scar tissue and creates channels for the encapsulated ink to escape through. Micro-needling was used at the end of this client’s process, to ensure all the scar tissue had broken down and the crystalized ink was ready for the immune system to carry it away.
We advise all of our clients to read up and research as much as possible. The more you know about laser tattoo removal, the more comfortable you’ll be with the whole experience.
It seems crazy doesn’t it. But it’s all about wavelengths and William Kwan, MD is here to explain it all in simple English.
Certain wavelengths target certain colored ink. These wavelengths are not focused on the pigmentation of your skin so they avoid it completely. Smart eh and completely safe.
In our hands with our experience it is 100% safe. We have performed over 1 million successful treatments, but there’s a reason Bond villains always have a laser, in the wrong hands they can be very dangerous.
