Skin bar use the AW3® Nd Yag laser that can safely and effectively remove tattoos, skin pigmentation and permanent make up.

The bodies immune system cannot naturally remove ink particles of tattoos as they are too large, because tattoo pigment is injected into the lower layers of the skin or the dermis it becomes locked away in a wall by a wall of collagen fibres.

Short bursts of high energy light are produced by the Q-switched laser, this light is absorbed by the large ink particles generating heat that shatters the tattoo pigment into particles which the body will remove. As tattoo ink absorbs the energy of the laser the surrounding skin does not overheat leaving no long-lasting damage.

Tattoo Removal FAQ’s

Neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet which is what ND YAG stands for, this is a crystal that is used as a medium for laser treatments. When in Q-switched mode the Nd YAG produces 2 wavelengths, one in the infrared range (1064nm) and the second beam at a wavelength of 532nm. The term Q switching refers to the technique of making the laser produce a high intensity beam in very short pulses.

There may be a risk of scarring with any laser, in most cases scarring is not a significant risk when removing tattoos with the ND Yag laser.  Older lasers have long been associated with scarring as they were very aggressive and did carry a very high risk of scarring.  As the ND Yag laser does not heat the surrounding skin significantly the rick of scarring is reduced. Genetic pre-disposition to forming scar tissue and the resistance of green pigment causes the risk of scarring. At Skin bar we carry out a medical evaluation to identify and reduce high-risk clients; also have an adjunct treatment that can prevent scar tissue forming and even improve existing.

The laser in principle can remove all kinds of tattoos. As tattoos are not all the same i.e colour, depth of ink and chemical composition some may respond in different ways. Colours that respond well with laser are typically Black, red dark orange and dark blue. Brown, purple, green, light orange, neon and light blue are harder to remove and may require more sessions.
