Truly it is one of the only ways to remove dark and multicolored tattoos with the smallest risk of skin damage.
The Harmony XL Pro Q-Switch allows you get your tattoos removed with fewer treatments, saving you money and reducing your discomfort and inconvenience.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Every color of ink requires a different wavelength of light and amount of energy to be efficiently removed. The Harmony XL Pro has a high-powered Q-switched laser that can operate 2 different wavelengths to be effective with darker colors, brighter colors like red and orange.
The treatment breaks down the ink particles without causing damage to the skin. This is achieved by a Photo-Acoustic effect created by the impact of the laser energy delivered with very short pulses to the targeted ink. Over time, your body’s natural healing processes (the
lymphatic system) removes the ink fragments from your body. This allows your tattoo to fade with only minimal risks of scarring or skin discoloration.
Frequently Asked Questions
The sessions are spaced six to eight weeks apart, which allows your skin to process the treatment. Many people start to see their ink fade after three appointments. Given six to eight weeks between each session, you can expect the results to start showing a few months after the process starts.
If a tattoo isn't responding well to treatment, an inexperienced or poorly trained technician may keep treating the same spot for too long. This won't remove the tattoo any faster or more efficiently – it is highly dangerous as it causes heat to build up in the skin, resulting in burns and scars.
It is recommended that you begin drinking plenty of water in the weeks leading up to your first tattoo removal treatment. The water in your body plays a key role in cell regeneration. Your skin cells will regenerate faster with proper hydration, which will enable the skin to break down the ink in your pigment faster.
Tattoo removal is not pain-free. Most people experience minor levels of discomfort. But if you could handle the pain of getting a tattoo, you shouldn't have a problem with this process. And while getting a tattoo can take hours, laser removal sessions only take a few minutes.
