Laser Tattoo Removal Process
Step-by-Step Laser Tattoo Removal
Our laser is the Quanta Q plus C and is FDA approved for Tattoo Removal. It is the best, strongest and safest laser available and features the first ever incorporated, Ruby laser. The Q-Plus laser is unique in that it has three different wavelengths built into one system.
This combination allows Skin Renew to effectively target all tattoo colors and pigmented lesions with the lowest risk of texture changes, and fewer treatments. The hardest colors to remove including Blue, green, red and black pigments are removed quickly and efficiently thanks to the Quanta Laser- the Gold Standard in tattoo removal.
*During the laser tattoo removal process, the ideal clinical endpoint for each laser tattoo removal treatment is “laser snow” or whitening of the skin over the treated area.
- Includes hemostasis and inflammation.
- After an injury to tissue occurs, the cell membranes, damaged from the wound formation release vasoconstrictors which help to limit hemorrhage.
- After a short period, capillary vasodilatation occurs secondary to local histamine release, and the cells of inflammation are able to migrate to the wound bed. First platelets come in which release epidermal growth factor, fibronectin, fibrinogen, etc.
- Then come scavenger cells (macrophage) to take away wound debris and to stimulate fibroblasts (to make new collagen).
- Re-epithelialization, angiogenesis, granulation tissue formation, and collagen deposition are the main steps in this portion of wound healing.
- If the basement membrane remains intact, (fractional treatments) normal layers of the epidermis are restored in 2-3 days.
- If the basement membrane has been destroyed, similar to a (second or third-degree burn), then the epidermis is rebuilt from the periphery. This takes longer and may appear different.
- The wound undergoes contraction, resulting in a smaller amount of apparent scar tissue.
- The entire process is a dynamic continuum with an overlap of each phase.
- The wound reaches maximal strength at one year, with a tensile strength that is 30% of normal skin.
- Collagen deposition continues for a prolonged period, but the net increase in collagen deposition plateaus after 21 days.
