Q-Switched Laser Treatment
Q-switched laser treatment encompasses three different types of laser that can be utilised for different concerns:
Nd:YAG (1064nm) laser treats vascular lesions, pigmented lesions. It also helps to remove blue, black and green tattoos.
Nd:YAG (532nm) laser is intended to remove red, violet, orange, yellow and brown tattoos.
Very short pulses are delivered with very high peak powers. The combination of energy delivery to the tissue enables a high photoacoustic effect.
