Tattoos are an increasingly popular method of body art, so it’s no surprise that a sizeable percentage of the world’s population is adorned with ink. Tattooing has been practiced for centuries in many cultures and can represent a number of meanings for the owner of the tattoo, including having religious, spiritual, and artistic implications. Unfortunately, there are some who later regret their body art. What seemed like a good idea at the time can cause major problems later in life, including psychological distress. For others, it can result in difficulty in securing employment or going for a promotion.
Many have lived with these regretted tattoos, wrongly believing them to be permanent. Fortunately, there’s an effective solution available, allowing tattoos to be safely faded and removed using the latest in medical-grade laser technology. Australian Laser & Skin Clinics specialise in professional laser tattoo removal, providing an affordable and safe procedure that effectively reduces the appearance of unwanted tattoos.
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics use a medical-grade laser known as a Q-Switched Alexandrite, the best laser for Tattoo Removal. Named for the crystal that focuses the light, this laser uses Q-Switching to create a high intensity beam in very short pulses. As a result, it can produce a very precise light on a specific wavelength that can be focused to approx. 0.1 millimetre – as small as a tattoo particle – for precise removal of ink from the dermis. This light breaks down the ink particles and they are then removed by the immune system in a natural process.
The Q-Switched Alexandrite Laser is approved by the American FDA and widely considered the ‘standard of care’ throughout the professional tattoo removal industry.
The procedure has been proven to be both safe and effective, with researchers having determined which wavelengths of light are most effective at removing ink without damaging surrounding skin.
