Focusing on Technology: The Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser for Effective Tattoo Removal


In tattoo removal, the laser beam uses a “photoacoustic” effect to shatter the pigment, targeting the chromophore while minimizing thermal damage to surrounding tissues. This results in a more effective treatment with reduced risk of harm to the surrounding skin.


In skin resurfacing treatments, the laser can be combined with a carbon pigment for enhanced results. The thermal effect from the pigment’s vaporization leads to a more tightened, toned, and elastic skin, as well as reduced sebum production. This innovative approach offers a versatile solution for a variety of skin concerns, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.


The laser features a uniform pulse, delivering the same amount of energy consistently across the treatment area. This allows for precise energy control, minimizing any unwanted effects resulting from uneven energy distribution. This technology provides a more effective and safer treatment, delivering the desired results with minimal risk of harm.


OptoH, the advanced Q-Switched crystal, generates an ultra-powerful Megawatt pulse in a mere moment, creating a photoacoustic effect that effectively shatters pigments deep down to the dermis layer. This innovative technology offers a safe and effective solution for tattoo removal, pigmented lesion treatment, and skin resurfacing, delivering the desired results with minimal risk of harm.

Efficient cooling

The laser module is cooled using water flowing through macro-channels, ensuring exceptional cooling capacity and superior laser performance. This innovative design allows for a safe and effective treatment, providing reliable results with minimal risk of harm or discomfort.

Mode of action

The laser’s Q-Switched crystal can be adjusted to vary its properties, enabling the laser to store pumping energy within the cavity and release it in just 9 nanoseconds. The 1064nm frequency makes it ideal for a range of applications, including tattoo removal, treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions, and skin photo-rejuvenation on the face. This versatile technology provides safe and effective results, delivering the desired outcome with minimal risk of harm or discomfort.

Low maintenance costs

The Q-Switched laser operates without the need for an articulated arm transmission, avoiding any energy attenuation issues. This design makes the system more efficient, reducing maintenance costs and ensuring consistent and effective results.

Software interface

The laser features an intuitive software interface with simple and straightforward parameter settings, making it user-friendly and accessible for operators of all skill levels.

Frequently Asked Questions: A Guide to Understanding the Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser for Tattoo Removal

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser uses the 1064nm wavelength to selectively absorb and fragment the tattoo ink. This process partially destroys the ink particles, reducing them to smaller fragments. These fragments are then taken up by macrophages (cells responsible for removing foreign particles) and are eventually removed from the body through the lymphatic system.

Tattoo removal typically requires a series of sessions, with a waiting period of at least 6-8 weeks between each one. The number of sessions required will vary based on several factors, including the depth, color, amount of ink, and location of the tattoo. Professional tattoos usually require 5-10 sessions to achieve the desired result, while amateur or superficial tattoos may be removed in fewer sessions.

Yes, the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is capable of treating a wide range of benign hyperpigmented lesions, including freckles, café au lait spots, ephelids, Nevus of Ota, Nevus of Ito, Nevus of Hori, and other congenital and acquired pigmented lesions. This laser has numerous clinical indications for treating skin and dermal pigmented lesions.

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser offers several benefits for tattoo removal including high efficiency, high accuracy, and less scarring compared to other tattoo removal methods. Additionally, the laser can effectively treat a variety of tattoo colors, including dark or stubborn inks, without damaging the surrounding skin.

Most patients report that the tattoo removal treatment is only slightly uncomfortable. Some experience a slight sensation of heat or tingling during the procedure. However, local anesthesia or cooling systems can be used to minimize any discomfort.

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is safe and effective for use on all skin types, including dark or tanned skin. The laser is equipped with advanced cooling systems to minimize the risk of damage to the surrounding skin during the treatment.

After the treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your physician. This may include avoiding direct sun exposure, using sun protection, and avoiding picking or scratching at the treated area. You should also keep the treated area clean and moisturized.

Like any medical procedure, there are risks associated with the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser tattoo removal treatment. These may include pain, swelling, itching, redness, or scarring. However, these risks can be minimized by following the aftercare instructions provided by your physician and avoiding sun exposure.
