Different Wavelengths for Multicolored Tattoos

Fotona’s Q-Switched lasers offer four wavelengths in one system – enabling treatments for virtually all commonly used pigment colors. Extremely short energy pulses cause tattoo pigments to break into smaller particles, which are then removed by the body’s own immune system. Most tattoo procedures take only a few minutes, but several treatments are typically needed to completely remove a tattoo. Three-week intervals between sessions are required to allow pigment residue to be cleared by the body.


What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal has become the standard treatment for tattoo removal because it offers an effective, safe and fast solution for removing unwanted tattoos. With the right laser, all common tattoo colors can be removed; black and dark tones, blues and sky blues, reds and tans, and greens.

How does it work?

 The laser affects the tattoo with very short and strong laser pulses that penetrate deep into the skin, without injuring the top layers. These pulses are then absorbed by the pigments in the ink and as the laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves, it mechanically breaks up the ink into smaller particles. These are then

naturally absorbed by the body’s own immune system. The number of treatments depends on the size of the tattoo as well as its location, depth and color. Amateur

tattoos are the easiest to remove whereas professional ones may require more treatment sessions. The tattoo will fade slowly between treatments as the body removes the remainders of the tattoo pigment.

Why is wavelength important?

Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser 1064 nm wavelength is the ideal tool tattoos removal. The Nd:YAG is the optimal modality for conversion into 532 nm, 585 nm and 650 nm wavelengths, allowing effective removal of all types of multi-collored and complex tattoos. Also, because of its selective nature, the Nd:YAG is hardly absorbed in melanin. Therefore, this wavelength can be safely used on all skin types.
