Multi-coloured tattoos: Not an issue anymore
“Tattoos are forever, think before you ink” – that’s what most people say. But all tattoos need not be forever if you don’t want them to be. It is commonly said that among all the tattoos, coloured tattoos are harder to be removed. Is it? Well, not with Alma Q. Even the most colourful tattoos can be removed without hassle with this treatment.
Let’s first look into what tattoo inks are made of, to understand the removal process better. Tattoo inks are made of a coloured pigment and carrier solution in which the coloured pigments are usually dyes and the carrier solution is alcohol. The alcohol in the carrier solution helps in keeping the dye solution sterile. It also keeps the pigment in a fluid state so that it can move easily through the needles and into the skin.
The laser treatment with Alma Q delivers high powered laser energy into the pigmented skin. The targeted tattoo ink particles are shattered into tiny particles when the area is treated with laser energy. It also makes sure the surrounded area or tissue is left unharmed. During this process, the pigment attracts and absorbs light energy and converts it into heat. It is, as a result of this heat, the pigment swells up and shatters into small fragments. These fragments are then removed by the body’s natural detoxification process.
When it comes to multi-coloured tattoos, the problem is that different colours of pigment require different wavelengths. However, Alma Q is a unique machine that offers solutions to a wide range of indications like vascular and pigmented lesions, skin remodelling, tattoo removal. etc. As pointed out previously, successful multi-coloured tattoo removal requires a high-powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colours. Alma Q delivers that.
Alma-Q offers four distinct Q-switched Nd: YAG laser wavelengths. Each of these wavelengths targets a specific ink color. This way a full-spectrum multi-color tattoo removal is made possible. The high power QSW 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors, while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors, including red, orange and yellow. The 585 nm wavelength specifically targets sky blue and the 650nm wavelength targets green and teal. ALMA-Q mechanically breaks down the ink particles in the tattoo without causing thermal damage, revealing healthy, color-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or permanent hypopigmentation.
And that’s it. It is just a matter of a few sessions before you will realise that you were worried for nothing. It is a common myth that multi-coloured tattoo removal is impossible. It might be a little harder than the traditional tattoo removal process, but it is never impossible. With the Alma-Q, multi-coloured tattoo removal has also turned out to be extremely safe, effective, and easier.
