How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

The QX Max laser removes unwanted tattoo with specialised light which is absorbed by the tattoo ink. The rapid absorption of the laser energy causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles, which is then removed by the body’s natural filtering system.

The number of treatments required depends on the volume, type (e.g. professional, amateur (homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos), location of the tattoo, size of the tattoo, skin tone, age of the tattoo, colour and the depth of ink within the dermal layers of the skin.

Our Laser Tattoo Removal Melbourne Technology

At Fresh Skin Canvas our world class leading Medical Grade Fotona QX MAX laser system offers four wavelengths in one for effective tattoo removal in Melbourne. Each different wavelength is preferentially attracted to different tattoo colours. With four wavelengths to choose from, it maximises the chance of removal for all tattoo colours on all skin types, previously considered impossible. The 532nm wavelength is attracted to red, tan, purple and orange, whilst the 1064nm is attracted to black, brown, dark blue, grey and yellow. The 585nm is attracted to sky blue and our 650nm attracted to green.

The QX MAX transmits extremely short energy pulses that cause tattoo pigments to break into smaller particles that are then removed by the body’s own immune system and defence mechanisms.

Our Fotona QX MAX Q-Switched laser tattoo removal technology generates single nanosecond pulses, which are more efficient at removing pigment than other systems that use multiple-pulse technologies. Single pulses are not affected by the optical shielding phenomenon arising from pigment destruction.Consequently more and deeper lying structures can be reached and removed, and laser treatment efficacy and efficiency in a single session are significantly greater. This means we can treat you with much more power giving you a better quicker and safer result.

With Q-switched laser there is minimal heat energy transferred to the skin reducing the risk of damage to surrounding skin tissues, commonly known as Thermal Relaxation Time (TRT). Although Q-switched laser treatments require several sessions to successfully remove or fade a tattoo, they have the greatest chance of returning your skin to its previous state in comparison to the other methods of laser tattoo removal Melbourne.Q-switched lasers allow for complete removal of the tattoo, or just to fade it so the area can be tattooed over for those wanting to change or update their tattoos.


Fotona QX MAX Laser: Cutting-Edge Laser Tattoo Removal

The Fotona QX MAX laser offers a revolutionary solution for safe and efficient laser tattoo removal. It is known as one of the most advanced and cutting-edge laser systems available in the market today.

The laser technology of the Fotona QX MAX is equipped with four different wavelengths that can accurately target various colors and shades of ink. This means that the treatment is highly effective for removing even the most stubborn and complex tattoos. It is also much faster than traditional laser tattoo removal methods, meaning that fewer treatments are required to achieve the desired results.

The Fotona QX MAX operates by firing precise laser pulses into the skin to break up the ink particles in the tattoo. The body’s natural immune system will then absorb and eliminate these ink particles over time. The laser’s precision also ensures that surrounding tissue is left unharmed, minimizing the risk of scarring or permanent damage to the skin.

The Fotona QX MAX laser is also FDA-approved, ensuring that it meets the highest safety and quality standards. It is suitable for all skin types and can effectively treat tattoos of various sizes and shapes.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs

  • Q. Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?

    This depends on an individual’s pain tolerance level. The sensation is often compared to being snapped with a rubber band.

    To help with pain management, we will place a ice pack prior to treatment. During treatment, we will also use the state-of-the-art Zimmer Cryo Cooler on the treated area. This device blasts out freezing air to numbs the area and minimizes the pain sensation significantly.

  • Q. What is the Downtime Post-Tattoo Removal Treatment?

    Tattoo removal is a process that requires adequate time and effort to ensure that the skin is restored adequately. After the treatment, the tattoo may appear slightly raised and frosted (white) in appearance.

    It typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks for the skin to heal completely after the removal process.

    During this time, it is common for the skin to experience slight scabbing, inflammation, redness, and/or itching. An ice pack can be used to reduce the swelling, and the application of a moisturizer can help soothe the skin. It is advisable to avoid exposing the treated skin to sunlight and to wear loose clothing to prevent chafing or irritation.

  • Q. How many sessions are required to remove a Tattoo?

    Removing a tattoo is a multi-step process that requires several sessions.

    Most tattoos typically require 3 to 8 sessions to be completely removed.

    The number of sessions required to remove a tattoo can vary depending on several factors:

      • Age – an older and faded tattoo will require fewer sessions than a recent one.
      • Location – Tattoos close to the heart are removed quickly as the blood supply is faster in this region.
      • Depth of Ink – Professional tattoo artists place ink in the deepest layers of the skin, making it harder to remove it and thus require more time.
      • Colours – Black is the easiest colour to remove as it absorbs every wavelength while lighter shades like white and yellow take more time since they need multiple wavelengths for removal.
      • Volume – If there is a higher concentration of ink in the dermis, it will need more sessions.
      • Layering – If the patient is getting a cover-up removed, it will take more time because the ink from both the old and new tattoos will have to be removed.

    It’s important to keep in mind that tattoo removal is a gradual process, and the results are not immediate. The patience will pay off!

  • Q. Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cause Scarring?

    Laser Tattoo Removal does not typically cause scarring when performed well.

    The laser energy targets the tattoo ink without damaging the surrounding skin, leaving a minimal chance of any scarring. The laser energy breaks up the ink particles into tiny fragments that the body can then absorb and eliminate naturally.

    However, it is important to follow the proper aftercare procedures, such as avoiding sun exposure and keeping the treated area clean and dry, to minimise the chances of scarring.

  • Q. Can Laser Tattoo Removal remove tattoos of all ink types?

    Yes, the Fotona QX MAX laser system is capable of removing tattoos of all ink types. The Q-switched laser technology of the Fotona QX MAX produces intense bursts of energy that target the pigment in the tattoo ink. The laser breaks down the ink particles into smaller fragments, which are then naturally removed by the body’s immune system.

    The Fotona QX MAX laser system offers versatility with its multiple wavelengths, allowing it to effectively target a variety of ink colors. Overall, the Fotona QX MAX is a powerful and effective tool for tattoo removal, capable of removing tattoos of all ink types.

  • Q. Is Laser Tattoo Removal suitable for all skin types?

    Fotona QX MAX laser tattoo removal is generally considered safe and effective for all skin types. This advanced laser technology is designed to selectively target the ink particles in the skin and break them down into smaller fragments that can be naturally eliminated by the body.

    One of the key advantages of the Fotona QX MAX laser is that it offers a range of wavelengths and pulse durations that can be customized and adjusted to match the color and depth of the tattoo, as well as the individual’s skin type and tone.

    Do feel free to raise any concerns with our experienced therapists.

  • Q. Can Laser Tattoo Removal be done on the face and neck?

    Yes, the Fotona QX MAX laser tattoo removal treatment can be safely used on the neck and face. The treatment is a non-invasive and efficient way to remove unwanted tattoos in a safe and effective manner. The laser energy is attracted to the color pigment in the ink, breaking it down into tiny particles which are then naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system.

    With the Fotona QX MAX laser, the treatment can be customized to suit individual needs and skin types, resulting in minimal discomfort and downtime. Before performing the treatment, the skin will be assessed to ensure that it is suitable for the procedure. With proper aftercare, individuals can achieve their desired results and have a fresh start with clear skin.
