Everything You Need To Know About Tattoo Removal

Let’s face it, your tattoo seemed a good idea at the time, but now you regret it and wish it could be removed.

At Oo La La Cosmetic Skin & Laser Clinic we use state of the art technology Quanta Q-Plus C Q-Switched technology in combination with Quanta’s You Laser MT technology to safely and effectively remove tattoo ink without leaving your skin permanently scarred or traumatised.

About the Quanta Q-Plus C Laser

The Quanta Q-Plus C is a medical laser that represents the most powerful three-wavelength Q-switched laser system for the removal of pigmented lesions and all tattoo pigments on the spectrum. It is the only laser available on the market to offer all three true laser wavelengths;

  • the Q-Switched Nd: YAG 1064 nm laser for black, dark blue and grey ink,
  • the Q-Switched Nd: YAG 532 nm laser for red, orange, yellow and purple pigment, and
  • the 694 nm Ruby laser for difficult to treat green, blue and sky blue pigments.

Why the Quanta Q-Plus C Technology?

What makes the Q-Plus C laser so superior is its unique square/flat top beam (Optibeam technology). This feature allows for safer and more effective treatments, reducing and preventing the occurrence of blisters and scarring.

Quanta Q Plus C technologyMost tattoo removal lasers offer a circular spot size (laser beam) resulting in overlap when treating the skin. This circular spot size causes the energy to be more focused in the overlapping area of skin, consequently delivering too much heat to the surrounding tissue rather than simply targeting the tattoo pigment.

The excessive heat within the tissue may then manifest itself as blisters, and potential scarring thereafter. With the flat-topped, square spot size that Optibeam technology offers, the energy distribution is homogeneously delivered over the treated skin, therefore providing more effective laser treatments. The revolutionary square spot size (laser beam), prevents the occurrence of this overlap and blistering, commonly seen with most lasers.

About the Quanta You Laser MT Laser

Quanta You Laser MT LaserThe Quanta You Laser MT Laser is state of the art fraction Co2 mixed technology, offering highly advanced skin resurfacing treatments including rejuvenation on all types of scarring (e.g. acne scarring), pigmentation and dyschromia.

The You Laser MT utilises revolutionary ‘Mixed Technology’ to combine an ablative (1060 0nm) and non-ablative (1540 nm) fractional laser in one simultaneous emission. This allows for safe, unprecedented results for skin resurfacing.

Mixed technology introduces a new era in laser treatments and works via an extremely precise ablative fractional photo-thermal interaction with the skin. This enables uniform skin regeneration and dramatic clinical improvement with minimal downtime. Due to a busy lifestyle more and more patients are seeking treatments which are non-invasive with no downtime to obtain smoother skin, without discolouration, to eliminate scars and visible blood vessels.

Why the combination of technology?

The You Laser MT technology used in conjunction with the Q-Plus C technology allows optimal penetration of energy to be absorbed into the skin, therefore resulting in better skin quality and great results. The You Laser MT creates small micro-channels into the skin to release heat caused by the Q switched laser to reduce blistering post-treatment or scarring. Not only will our combined technology remove your tattoo safely, but it will also restructure the underlying integrity of the skin and improve the overall quality of the skin and further optimise the results.

Cryotherapy Cooling System

Oo La La Cosmetic Skin & Laser Clinic utilise a dedicated cooling system designed to ensure pain is minimised during and after treatment. The cooling system can reach -35 making it the most effective way of cooling the skin, as well as reducing the risk of thermal injury.
