Because of the vast improvements made in new laser tattoo removal technology, tattoo removal is one of the fastest growing sectors in the medical aesthetics industry.
Older technology broke the top layer of the skin, which resulted in slow-to-heal, painful scarring and open wounds. The newest technology targets the ink directly and stimulates it to fade away, avoiding side effects such as scarring, pain and downtime.
The National Laser Institute offers laser tattoo removal classes for anyone looking to earn their tattoo removal certification and learn the latest tattoo removal techniques to provide safe and effective treatments.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
In recent years, laser tattoo removal treatments have exploded in popularity; however, not many people understand the science behind this minimally invasive procedure.
During a tattoo removal treatment, pulses of light are sent into the skin and absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing the particles to heat up and shatter into tiny fragments. The body’s immune system eliminates these fragmented participles, lightening the appearance of the tattoo.
Q-switched lasers have become the industry standard for laser tattoo removal treatments because they can heat and shatter tiny ink particles without disturbing the surrounding skin tissue. This allows tattoo removal technicians to target tattoo ink particles while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The Q-switched technology taught during laser tattoo removal classes includes all three wavelengths (1064/755/532), which treats every tattoo color.
