Laser tattoo removal is a growing market. In fact, experts expect spending on laser tattoo removal treatments to exceed $83 million by 2018. While there are many factors that lead to tattoo regret, one thing is clear… the regret is strong and many Americans are looking for a reliable way to erase their ink.

Tattoos are created by injecting colored pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of whether a tattoo artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks or designs are relatively permanent. When people subsequently want their tattoos removed, most physicians today consider laser tattoo removal one of the best methods.

For years, the Q-switched Nd:YAG has been the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. With the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser available on the Harmony XL PRO laser system, you can effectively treat dark tattoo inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos) and dark blue. The 532nm KTP laser is often used to treat red, yellow and orange pigments.

Today, most tattoos are created with more than one color, so most physicians looking to offer laser tattoo removal need multiple wavelengths.

Recently, picosecond laser technology was introduced as a groundbreaking new option for effectively treating tattoos. This next-generation laser tattoo removal technology uses ultrashort pulses to target ink particles. These pulses are able to shatter pigment into tiny particles that are more easily absorbed and cleared by the body.

Quite simply, picosecond laser tattoo removal technology enables practitioners to eliminate tattoos in fewer treatments. This results in faster results and happier patients.
