To help you grasp how great our laser is, there are two things you must understand: wavelengths and absorption. Lasers emit different wavelengths to target a specific group of tattoo ink colors. Depending on the wavelength being used and the color of the pigment being targeted, the ink will either absorb or reflect the laser’s light energy. It is the absorption of light energy that causes the ink particles to shatter into tiny fragments.
For example, when you look at a red apple, you are really seeing the wavelengths of light being reflected off of the apple. Besides red, the apple is absorbing every other color of light. Likewise, a red tattoo should not be treated with red light because the light energy would just be reflected. If the ink particles do not absorb the light energy, they remain trapped in your skin’s dermis layer, permanently etched and unshattered. Therefore, the correct wavelengths must be used in order to achieve absorption and ultimately successful removal.
The Astanza Trinity featured at Fresh Start Laser Tattoo Removal Austin Clinic produces three wavelengths that can treat virtually any tattoo color. Most tattoo clinics do not offer three wavelengths, and therefore are unable to treat all tattoos, especially multicolored tattoos. Each of the Trinity’s wavelengths is absorbed by a specific group of ink colors, allowing for effective removal across the widest range of pigments.
Colors like bright blue and lime green are considered very difficult to remove because they do not absorb wavelengths emitted by a regular Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm and 532 nm). Only the 694 nm ruby wavelength produced by our Trinity is effectively absorbed by these resistant pigments. It is only through the combination of these three wavelengths that a multicolored tattoo can be effectively treated and removed to completion.
All three of our Trinity’s wavelengths are safe to use on all skin types. In addition, the Trinity uses ultra short pulse durations and higher pulse energies to produce the highest peak power in the industry. This allows for optimal ink shattering, faster ink clearance, and fewer overall treatments for you! Other clinics that boast the power of picosecond technology simply pale in comparison to our Astanza Trinity. Read more about picosecond lasers here.
