What is Tattoo Removal?
Fotona's SkyWalker Multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser systems with frequency-doubled KTP are uniquely able to produce very short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of skin to be selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments.
What Can I Expect from Tattoo Removal Treatments?
Most tattoo procedures take only a few minutes, but several treatments are typically necessary to completely remove a tattoo. Three-week intervals between sessions are required to allow pigment residue to be cleared by the body.
Which Treatment is Best for Me?
Fotona's StarWalker laser system offers four wavelengths in one system, enabling treatments for virtually all commonly used pigment colors. The StarWalker transmits extremely short energy pulses that cause tattoo pigments to break into smaller particles that are then removed by the body's own immune system.
