Main usage Q-Switch laser:
- Removing a tattoo
- Removing permanent make-up (eyebrows, lips, eyes)
- Removing freckles and birthmarks
- Carbon Laser peeling (skin rejuvenation)
Treatments with Q-Switch Nd: Yag laser are currently the safest method of removing tattoos and permanent makeup, which gives very good results without leaving scars, discoloration and serious damage to the skin. By using appropriate treatment parameters Q-Switch lasers are effective and produce small side effects. Recovery time is also very short.
Laser Q-Switch emits nanosecond pulses, that means producing very high energy density in a short time. During the procedure, there is a photo-mechanical break-up of dye or pigment into smaller particles, which are subsequently removed from the body by the immune system. During the procedure altered skin is going through intense stimulation. Micro-cracks are formed, which leads to the onset of intense regeneration process. Portions of the pigment are being eliminated from the upper layers of the skin. The pigment particles remaining in the deeper layers can be removed during the process of phagocytosis.
Treatment with a laser Q-switch may cause slight skin burning by heating.
To prevent overheating of the treated skin, there are variety of ways to reduce the temperature: cold gel-compress, head treatment with cooling or flow of cool air. In order to increase the comfort, procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. In the case of very large tattoos, treatment may be carried out in several stages, each for a different part of the tattoo. This ensures patient comfort of such treatments.
In most cases, laser therapy provides very effective results. You can remove all types of tattoos, tattoos professional, unprofessional, permanent make-up and contaminations or scars caused by accident or injury can be removed by laser in a minimum of 90%. For treatment to be effective, a specialist must understand the characteristics of tattooing. Dyes and pigments, which creates the tattoo are found primarily in the upper layer of the dermis. However, smaller proportion may be found in deeper layers of the skin. Removing completely of unwanted pigmentation requires several sessions at intervals of approx. 4-6 weeks. At this time, the pigment particles that have been broken up by the laser are absorbed by the body. After an appropriate time and the appropriate number of treatments dyes tattoo disappear completely.
Number of treatments
Number of treatments is determined depending on the type of tattoo, on its size, color depth, type of skin, and whether the tattoo was made in a manner professional – the dye is then at the same depth or amateur – the dye particles are introduced into the skin at different depths.
Each session produce approx. 20% brighter tattoo.
Treatment time depends on the size of the change and may request from 5 to 60 minutes.
Recommended frequency and the number of treatments needed:
- Amateur tattoos require for approx. 90% removal require 4-5 treatments.
- Professional tattoos, which are usually characterized by a high density and strong pigments require approx. 6-8 treatments.
- Between treatments should be 6-8 week break, during which smashed dye particles are absorbed by the body, as evidenced by a gradual lightening tattoo.
Preparation before surgery
Do not expose the treated area to UV radiation, at least 4 weeks before the surgery.
You should not perform the strengths of chemical peels, scrubs and coarse-grained 1 week before surgery.
After the first treatment there are usually visible effects of whitening the surface of the tattoo, because cavitation bubbles are formed, which in many ways reflect light. This effect lasts approximately 15 – 30 minutes, then the skin regains natural color, and tattoo is lightened. Pigmented spots and freckles after surgery become darker. The site of the scabs can be flushed for about 2 weeks. Immediately after the surgery swelling and redness of the skin appears. For a few days after the treatment the skin may remain in small scabs. In a few cases appear discoloration or changes in tissue texture.
After removal, the tattoo area should be protected from exposure to sunlight for a period of 3-4 months in order to avoid discoloration. During this period, do not use the tanning or solarium and protect the skin by using cream with SPF 50. After the procedure topical ointment or cream should be used with an antibiotic. In any case, do not pick scabs formed after the procedure, because the bulkhead is the creation of scars, and you can not scratch wounds. Until healing, avoid using of gym, sauna and swimming pool. It is important, that you can use at the time of cosmetics to cover up a temporary skin changes.
Laser peeling carbon
The revolutionary method in the fight against acne, blackheads, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and regeneration and stimulation of the skin.
The laser peeling treatment of coal is carried out by a Q-Switch. The skin is covered with a mask of a special carbon, it is then irradiated with a laser beam causing “micro-explosions” through which the skin is cleaned and stimulated to produce collagen. Peeling method is safe and painless, it brings an immediate effect, which is dependent on the state of skin problems. The improvement of the skin is visible after the first treatment. With each treatment effects will be more and more visible. The procedure takes about 30-40 minutes.
To produce the best results it is recommended to have 3 – 4 treatments at intervals of approx. 2-3 weeks.

- Cleansing Skin
- The narrowing of pores
- Removing stains
- The stimulation of collagen synthesis
- The shallowness and superficial wrinkles
- skin diseases
- prone to discoloration and scaring
- The use of retinoids and isotretinoin for example. Accutane (required 3 month break)
- intensive tan and freshly tanned leather (up to 2 weeks after the last firing)
- vitiligo, multiple sclerosis, kidney failure
- change in viral or bacterial skin
- prone to infections
- reduced resistance of the body
- steroids and drugs photosensitizing
