Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal: Laser Treatment Outshines All Others

July 15, 2023

Thanks to recent advances in laser technology, today’s lasers can:

  • Get rid of tattoos more safely and effectively without damaging the skin, scaring or discoloration
  • Remove all tattoo ink with fewer treatments
  • Treat all ink colors

But not all tattoo lasers are the same. There are a lot of places that claim they do laser tattoo removal but don’t have a laser designed specifically for tattoo removal, or don’t have the ideal laser to achieve the best results or remove all ink colors. Inexpensive Passive lasers are often used by Tattoo Parlors and Spa’s. These small, inexpensive machines will only partially fade your Tattoo and can never completely remove your tattoos. If your tattoo is not showing significant signs of fading after laser treatment, it is likely that you are being treated with this type of laser.

Active Q-Switched Lasers are expensive but the absolute best and most effective lasers for removing tattoos. At Zapn’Ink, we use the most advanced state-of-the-art tattoo removal laser available– the Quanta Q plus C. This actively Q-switched laser is specifically designed to provide impressive tattoo removal results. It can treat the full spectrum of colors and is safe to use on all skin types. This laser is FDA approved for the removal of tattoo ink. We also use an actively Q-switched Ruby laser to treat resistant tattoos and rare colors. The Q-Plus Series of tattoo removal devices sets the standard by which all other devices are measured. It is the only device on the market to offer 3 true laser wavelengths including the 694nm Ruby to treat the difficult green and blue inks. Patients report minimal discomfort and are amazed by how easily we can remove their tattoo.

While the technology has improved, your results still depend almost entirely on the person performing the tattoo removal. For laser tattoo removal to be safe and effective, the person removing the tattoo must consider many things, including your health. Laser tattoo removal is generally safe when performed by a qualified technician with a healthcare background or doctor.
