Tattoo Removal

The advanced technology of the Q Switched laser (Intense Pulsed Light), from ALMA LASER, provides us with an effective treatment for all types of tattoos, light, and dark.

The Q Switched laser limits the pulses of energy in bursts of nanoseconds, thereby minimizing any type of injury while maximizing the effect caused on the ink. This process fragments the ink particles into much smaller ones that can be eliminated by our organism, minimizing the injury of the surrounding tissues so that no scars remain on our skin.

The results of the treatment vary depending on different factors such as the area where the tattoo is, the colors, sex, the age of the tattoo and the type of skin.
