There have been many methods available for removing tattoos in the past, for example surgical excision, skin grafting and dermabrasion, but all have major drawbacks, of which scarring is the most serious. However using laser technology developed by scientists and doctors and tested in extensive clinical trials, a new method is now widely available to the public.
What is the Q-switched yag laser?
The Q-switched yag laser uses the body’s own defence mechanism to make tattoo pigment fade away – with great success as already demonstrated in thousands of cases and an editorial in the British Medical Journal stated that Q-switched yag laser was the treatment of choice for the removal of tattoos. We at laserase Belfast have successfully removed hundreds of tattoos in our twenty years plus in business.
