“New tattoo removal laser technology removes tattoos,
quicker, better with no pain.”
UNDO THAT TATTOO WITH LATEST LASER
Tattoos were once reserved for dropouts, sailors, criminals and punks but these days you’d be hard pressed to walk down any busy Bangkok street and not see people of all ages, all nationalities, sporting leg tattoos, arm sleeves and even head tattoos. Now that Tattoos have gone mainstream and lost their uniqueness some people are starting to rethink their ink and would like to have them removed. Another factor in many people’s desire to remove a tattoo is that 20- or 30-year old tattoos usually fade and the fine lines spread so they don’t look as good as they did when they were fresh, plus tattoos tend to look better on young skin than on older, wrinkled skin.
NEW LASER to remove tattoo
Over the years, there have been numerous methods to remove tattoos, from creams that claim to progressively fade away and remove your tattoo, to dermabrasion and Trichloroacetic acid, which removes the top layers of skin (ouch!). When the first wave of lasers came along in the early nineties the results were less than satisfactory and often left people with burns, and textural changes to the skin. Fortunately, at the turn of the century those old lasers were replaced with newer, safer technology but they still take up to a year or even longer to remove a large tattoo and they still use heat to break up ink.
Fast forward to today and the good news for anyone thinking about getting a tattoo removed is that a major advancement in laser technology has led to the development of a machine that is fast, safe, effective and takes most of the heat out of the equation. Say hello to picosecond lasers, which pulse a beam of light at an amazing trillionth of a second and instead of heat use a photo acoustic mechanism (pressure) to break up the ink.
TATTOO REMOVAL NO PAIN
When it comes to putting a laser on your skin to remove a tattoo, heat is the enemy. In addition, because the picosecond pulses 100x faster than the nanosecond, so the laser is on the skin for 100x shorter of an amount of time allowing the surrounding skin to disparate heat for a longer amount of time. Ultra-short pulses, one trillionth of a second in length, hit the ink particle in the tattoo with a pressure so intense that the ink shatters into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are easily absorbed and eliminated by the body’s immune system.
The other very exciting news is that picosecond lasers can also be used for beauty and skin rejuvenation procedures to reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. The treatments are precise so the surrounding skin is not damaged or scarred by the procedure. Even difficult-to-treat conditions such as melasma, which is common on Asian skin, and post-acne pigmentation can improve rapidly with the new picosecond technology.
When it comes to laser technology, this new kid on the block hasn’t only come to remove tattoos, it is going to wipe out nanosecond lasers and force them into early retirement!
