Laser Tattoo Removal

Are you tired of your Tattoo? 

At Sensius Laser Clinic we have the answer with our Laser Tattoo Removal treatments and the ASCLEPION TattooStar Effect machine.

The FDA-approved ASCLEPION TattooStar Effect is the industry’s most effective tattoo removal process available today, it combines the Nd:YAG and the ruby Q-switched lasers in the same device. Three wavelengths to adapt treatments precisely to the patient’s needs and to a wide range of pigment colors (dark colors, red and green). 

Previous tattoo removal technology was very painful, has not been able to remove all ink colours and could cause scarring and other side effects to patients. ASCLEPION TattooStar Effect has been proven to remove almost all ink, including large and complex tattoo designs.  The ultra-short pulses of the Q-switched make it possible to burst the particles without any thermal side effects or scars. This increases patient comfort.

Getting rid of tattoos and permanent makeup in a gentle way is finally possible

Today, there is an increasing demand for the removal of tattoos. On average, one in two people wishes to remove their tattoos after about ten years. This is a result of the inevitable changes in fashion and style or simply due to growing older.

For many years now, Q-Switched lasers such as the TattooStar Family of Asclepion with various wavelengths have been used to remove tattoos. Compared to other methods, this treatment has the benefit of the risk of scar formation being very low. In recent years ,the Q-Switched lasers have begun to be used for the removal of permanent makeup as well.

Choosing the right wavelength: a decisive factor for the success of the treatment

The type of laser is a decisive factor when determining which color pigments may be treated particularly well and which colors do not respond as well to treatment.

Ruby lasers (694nm), which work in the near-infrared range, have proved themselves to be almost universally deployable in practice. This wavelength, in fact, is strongly absorbed by green colored pigments, in addition to dark colors in general. Moreover, as a result of the strong absorption of the ruby laser beam by the skin pigment melanin, these devices are also used for the treatment of natural pigmented lesions. Patients generally tolerate the treatment without an anesthetic; a local anesthetic is only used in rare cases.

The green light of the Nd:YAG lasers (532 nm) are very well absorbed by darker red colored pigments and by dark colors in general. The 1064 nm wavelength can be used for the removal of superficial, benign pigmented lesions.

How the treatment works

The wavelength of the Ruby or Nd:YAG laser light is specifically absorbed by the color pigments in the tattoo. The energy is transferred and then fragments the ink particles from the connective tissue. The fragmented particles are then degraded epidermally and lymphatically. The irradiated area of skin appears whitish for between ten and twenty minutes immediately after treatment. A slight crust then forms, which will slough off after between one and two weeks. It is common for a number of sessions at intervals of several weeks to be required to remove a tattoo.
