Q-Switched Laser Treatment: The Best for Tattoo Removal

At Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville, we use Q-Switched lasers to remove tattoos from your skin that primarily composed of darker colors. These lasers break down the skin and tattoo pigments into small particles that are naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. Most of our patients usually require around 6-12 treatment sessions to achieve optimum results.
What Are the Different Types of Lasers?
There are several types of Q-Switched lasers doctors use to remove tattoos and skin pigmentation. Some of the common ones include the Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser, the Ruby Laser, and the Alexandrite Laser. Each of these lasers contains a crystal rod which produces different wavelengths. These different wavelengths determine what the laser will be used for.
How Do I Know if This Treatment Is Right for Me?
The Q-Switched laser treatment is right for you if you have small or large dark tattoos you want to remove from your skin. The treatment is not appropriate for breastfeeding and pregnant women, as well as those patients who have taken isotretinoin medication for the past six months. You should also avoid this treatment if you have a history of herpes simplex virus or cold sores.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
A single treatment session usually eliminates up to 75 percent of tattoo and skin pigmentation. More treatment sessions are usually needed to achieve flawless skin. You can combine the Q-switched laser treatment with other cosmetic treatments but usually not on the same day.
What Are the Advantages of Q-Switched Laser Treatment?
• The lasers can be adjusted to treat the specific tattoo.
• The treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime.
• Can be combined with other cosmetic procedures.
How Much Does the Q-Switched Laser Treatment Cost?
The cost of the Q-Switched laser treatment ranges between $300 and may go as high as $1000 per treatment session. The cost varies depending on many factors such as the issue being addressed, the number of treatment sessions and the geographic region of the provider.
