Amerejuve loves tattoo removal!
Different laser wavelengths are needed to remove different colors of ink. Dark colors are easier to remove than lighter ones, with black being the easiest of all – a 1064nm laser is the right choice for removing an all-black tattoo. However, this is the only laser on offer at many tattoo removal clinics, and it isn’t effective for removing colored tattoos.
Here at amerejuve Houston, we use the Quanta Q-Plus laser which is a Q-switched laser with several wavelengths to remove all ink colors.
The ultra-short nanosecond pulses generate powers in the Megawatt range producing a powerful yet contained photo-mechanical effect in which pigment particles shatter and destroy the cells they are contained in; effectively removing the pigment.
