There are different options to remove such unpleasant motifs: A full or partial removal of a tattoo. There are also different methods for a removal. A laser treatment offers an efficient and gentle method for a tattoo removal. This effective method removes tattoos without great risks. During the treatment the discomfort keeps within limits and there are no remaining scars. Some customers say, that it feels like a rubber band which is snapped onto the skin. Then again other people say it is a similar feeling to getting a tattoo. The treatment with the laser is very quick though. Already after a few minutes the session is over.
When getting a tattoo, the colour is inserted into the second skin layer, also called dermis. This process is now getting reversed with the laser. The photomechanical effect of the laser beam ensures that the colour particles heat up for a split second and burst into many small pieces, which are removed from the body with the help of the lymphatic system. That can only take place in a small area, hence there are various sessions necessary, if a bigger tattoo has to be removed. It is uncommon, that more than 12 sessions are necessary.
During a treatment our high-performance picosecond laser, which was developed for aesthetic medicine, is glided over the skin and removes tattoos more reliable, quick and less painful than ever. The laser sends out extremely short energy impulses, we talk about trillionths of seconds, into the skin. With this technology the pulse width is a hundred times smaller as with the nanotechnology. Here an especially intensive photomechanical effect is obtained, which is noticeable stronger than with the common nanosecond laser. For visualizing this, we compare the colour pigments of the tattoo in the skin to rocks. Nanotechnology shatters the rocks into pieces, picosecond-technology makes sand out of the rocks, which can be easily removed. This way the body can easily get rid off the crushed colour pigments.
