Technology behind treating a multi-coloured tattoo.


“The TRI-BEAM Q-Switched Nd YAG Laser enables you to treat the broadest range of tattoo colours.”

There is a lot of science behind the removal of a multi-coloured tattoo by laser. Different colours of pigment absorb different levels of laser light energy before they shatter, which is the reason why multi-coloured tattoos are far more difficult to remove. Black is the easiest pigment to remove, because it is the darkest and absorbs the most energy. Green, blue and yellow are some of the most difficult. This means that multi-coloured tattoos requires different laser beams, settings and knowledge making treatment far more complicated and costly. Since each pigment colour absorbs a very specific wavelength, we have chosen the TRI-BEAM which is equipped with four wavelengths - 1064nm, 532nm, 650nm and 585nm - that target 9 of the most frequently used tattoo colours ranging from light orange to dark black. Because only the latest advanced medical-grade lasers come with alternate wavelengths, many clinics fail to provide this solution. Before booking with your laser technician, ensure they specifically treat the colours you need.

Glycolic Acid is highly regarded in the beauty industry for its moisturizing and rejuvenating properties. It is mild, safe and harmless to the skin. Used in greater concentrations it also acts as I highly effective tattoo removal solution. It is applied in a similar way to tattooing or micropigmentation by using the same equipment. The tattoo extraction formula starts working almost immediately after applying on the implanted tattoo ink. While healing, the skin extracts more and more undesired ink. Glycolic Acid tattoo removal is commonly used to remove permanent makeup or treat areas such as eyes, lips and nipples where laser is not a suitable option. Due to Iron Oxides in permanent makeup, some pigments may darken or turn black if treated by laser. We also use this method when dealing with corrective flesh or white colour pigments where laser is reflected by these colours.
