Can I get my colorful tattoos removed?

Do you have colorful tattoos that you got when you were younger, but now think you can definitely do without. You may have heard that tattoos are very hard to get rid of, so you’re probably wondering if you will be able to get your colorful tattoos removed.

Can I get my colorful tattoos removed?

Yes it is possible to remove your colorful tattoos, but it requires the right technology. Tattoos are made of pigments of varying colors that can be effectively faded using laser technology. However, tattoo removal lasers are not created equal, because not all of them can fade colored tattoos.

Lumenis QX Max for tattoo removal

The Lumenis QX Max has proven to be a superior solution for removing multi-colored tattoos. The QX Max is a gentle, high-powered Q-switched laser system that has 4 different wavelengths. As a result, it is able to target a variety of pigment colors including resistant colors such as green and blue, as well as red, purple, black, and tan.

How the QX Max works

The laser emits short pulses of intense light that target the tattoo pigment in the deeper layers of the skin. The laser light breaks up the pigment into tiny fragments, which are removed from the body over the following weeks.

Although advances in laser technology have greatly improved outcomes, factors such as the type and amount of ink used, and the depth of the tattoo, influence the success of the tattoo removal process.
