Official: Nanosecond Laser Is Outdated Tattoo Removal Technology

Posted by Andrew on Feb 6, 2019 10:43:13 AM

Official: Nanosecond laser is outdated tattoo removal technology - replaced by Picosecond laser.


As reported in our article, “PicoWay Laser Makes Q-Switched Nanosecond Tattoo Removal Obsolete” back in August 2016, nanosecond lasers were starting to become superseded by the latest picosecond lasers. However, there has been some false starts by the first-generation systems like the PicoSure. A few years ago, manufacturers were trying to discredit the picosecond technology saying that picosecond was no more effective than nanosecond. The real reason why they were saying this was because they didn’t yet have a picosecond in their range. Now, all the same manufacturers are only promoting their picosecond systems and have stopped development in nanosecond lasers. Anything in technology only logically progresses. Picosecond laser is like the digital phone and nanosecond laser is like the analogue phone. I am going to break down the differences between the two technologies.

Tattoo Removal Going Too Slow? Here's Why & How To Get Fast Results

Posted by Andrew on Jan 5, 2019 7:45:37 AM

For some people, removing a tattoo can literally take years. In fact, you can have your tattoo removed in just 4-6 months. If your laser tattoo removal is going too slow, don't put up with it! Find out how to get your tattoo removed or faded fast and effectively.

The amount of time you have to wait between laser tattoo removal sessions can double your total removal time. Doing 10 sessions with only 2 to 4 weeks between each session will only take you between 4.5 and 9 months, whereas 10 sessions at a different clinic that makes you wait 6 to 8 weeks between treatments will take between 13 to 18 months.

How To Remove Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattoos Safely & Effectively

Posted by Andrew on Nov 5, 2018 10:53:50 AM

Great eyebrows can have a resounding impact on appearance. Beautiful brows help to define facial features and accentuate the eyes.  With the evolution of feather touch or microblading techniques, tattooed eyebrows, also referred to as permanent or semi-permanent makeup, continues to be a popular cosmetic treatment.

But what if you've had cosmetic tattooing and you're not happy with the result? What if you had your eyebrows tattooed years ago, before microblading was developed, and you want the tattoos removed? Not all cosmetic procedures result in the look that we want. Particularly with tattoos, the result can fade, and the colour can change over time. Find out how to safely and effectively remove unwanted cosmetic tattoos.

How Many Laser Treatments Does It Take To Remove A Tattoo?

Posted by Andrew on Oct 3, 2018 10:34:40 AM

Asking the question, “How many laser treatments does it take to remove a tattoo?” is one of those frustrating questions that doesn’t have a definitive answer. There are numerous factors that influence the number of treatments it takes to remove a tattoo, which are outlined below. The danger lies in being quoted a cheap price per session, without a guarantee of the total number of sessions. You could end up paying for 15+ sessions when in fact you could have only paid for 10 or less.

Therefore, the real question to ask is, “how much will it cost to remove my tattoo?” At Detail Tattoo Removal, Sydney’s Laser Tattoo Removal Specialists, we guarantee that the maximum number of sessions you will pay for is 10, any colour, any size tattoo.

Is Your Laser Tattoo Removal Operator Qualified?

Posted by Andrew on Aug 24, 2018 11:42:28 AM

In New South Wales, Victoria, Northern Territory and South Australia anyone that has a Laser Safety Officer certificate can perform laser tattoo removal. In Queensland, Radiation Health is responsible to issue laser tattoo removal licenses and a certification of competency after a minimum number of hours in a log book. In Western Australian and Tasmania only doctors are allowed to operate a laser.

Due to the self-regulating nature of the industry, this raises the question for the consumer how do you know your operator knows what they are doing?” Unfortunately, the risk normally falls back on the consumer. This poses real dangers for the consumer. A rise in serious injury and scarring is occurring on unsuspecting people. The class 4 laser system used in tattoo removal is a medical grade device that can do irreversible damage when operated incorrectly.

How The Immune System Affects Laser Tattoo Removal Results

Posted by Andrew on Aug 1, 2018 9:49:24 AM

How the immune system affects tattoo removal results and ways to increase effective laser tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal has been around for over 10 years now and the technology is more advanced than ever. Laser tattoo removal has now become a mainstream solution for a problem that once was considered permanent. This is a great example of medical advancement improving the life of the people that needed it.

It is important to understand that as good as science is, there are factors that influence the effectiveness of this technology. The industry leading standard is the picosecond laser, which works by shattering the ink particles, with the laser firing at picosecond (trillionth of a second) speeds. Then the immune system takes over and removes the ink particles from the area. We explain how the immune system works in tattoo removal and the factors that decrease and increase the effectiveness.

What To Expect After Laser Tattoo Removal

Posted by Andrew on Jul 2, 2018 12:19:08 PM

At Detail Tattoo Removal we have noticed our clients are more informed today when it comes to the different laser systems available. There is the older technology Nd:YAG Q-Switched laser and also the latest picosecond laser systems. There are an increasing number of different brands of the picosecond laser systems as well. I have many articles written about each of these below. However, clients are still in the dark and often surprised by what to expect after a laser tattoo removal session. I am going to attempt to answer all your questions and give the expected outcomes from both the older Nd:YAG Q-Switched laser and the picosecond lasers.

The bottom line here is, if the clinic is not using either the Nd:YAG Q-Switched or picosecond then the clinic is not using a FDA approved laser. You could end up losing thousands of dollars or worse, be scarred for life.

Posted by Andrew on Jun 1, 2018 1:02:19 PM

Similarly, the power and speed of a laser coupled with the experience and qualifications of the clinician varies dramatically between clinics.

If you're considering a tattoo cover up, beware! There is only one thing worse than a bad tattoo - a bad cover up. One of the most difficult things for a tattooist to master is cover ups. It's not just about finding a design big enough to cover the old tattoo, it's about experience, balance and a solid understanding of how pigments age in skin over time.

Learn what influences the success or failure of a cover up and how laser tattoo removal can give you more flexibility than you thought.
