Q-Switched Nd:YAG

Q-Switched Nd: YAG lasers utilize a crystal called Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Nd: YAG) as a medium to amplify light, creating high-intensity pulses. The “Q-Switch” refers to the mechanism that allows the laser to produce a pulse that is high in energy and short in duration, making it ideal for treating pigmented lesions and tattoo removal.

What is Q-Switched Nd: YAG for tattoo removal?

Q-switched lasers are a type of laser technology commonly used for tattoo removal. They work by emitting short, high-energy pulses of light that are absorbed by the tattoo ink. The energy from the Q-switched lasers breaks the ink into smaller particles, which are then naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body.

Treatments with a Q-switched laser are typically performed in a series of sessions, with each session spaced several weeks apart. The number of tattoo removal treatments required can vary depending on several factors, including the size and location of the tattoo, the depth of the ink, and the patient’s skin type.

Q-switched laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective method for removing tattoos.

How does the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser work?

The Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser works by targeting specific pigments in the skin, which TARGETS the damaged skin cells in the treatment area.

When it comes to laser tattoo removal, the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser targets ink pigment and breaks it up into smaller particles through powerful bursts of energy. The ink is then absorbed into the bloodstream and eventually expelled from the body.

The Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser utilizes two energy frequencies; 1064 nanometers, to target deeper skin layers, and 532 nanometers, to address hyperpigmentation and more superficial layers.

What are the Q-Switched ND YAG Laser Treats ?

Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser for treating pigment-related problems, like moles, freckles, and pigmented lesions.

Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser is also used for laser tattoo removal. It can provide dramatic lightening of most tattoo colors but tends to be most effective on darker inks. When it comes to green and yellow tattoo ink, this laser may not be the most effective option.

Q-Switched Nd:YAG Technology Advantages

  • Versatility: Q-Switched Nd: YAG can treat a wide range of skin conditions, from tattoos of various ink colors to deep-pigmented lesions.
  • Safety: The Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser’s precise targeting minimizes the risk of damage to surrounding tissues, making it safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones.
  • Effectiveness: It is highly effective in breaking down pigment, with many patients seeing significant improvement after just a few sessions.
  • Minimal Downtime: Treatments are non-invasive, with most patients experiencing only minor redness or swelling for a short period post-procedure.
