Laser Tattoo Removal Machines
Featuring Nu Mini Tatouage
About the Product:
This product is the desktop version of the standard floor-standing Nu Tatouage.
Although tattoos were once considered to be permanent, it is now possible to remove them with our laser technology equipment. Our tattoo removal machines are non-invasive and and require very little training to get setup. They utilise Nd-YAG lasers and cutting-edge Quality Switched (also known as Q-switched) Nd-YAG lasers.
Older tattoo removal techniques included dermabrasion, salabrasion, excision, cryosurgery, thermal destruction and continuous wave lasers.
We use state of the art technology and provide a second to none customer care service; something we remain proud of for all the laser products we have on sale.
How it works?
Tattoos are created by the introduction of a pigment into the dermal skin layer. They can broadly be divided into professional, amateur, and cosmetic tattoos.
Professional tattoos are applied with a tattoo machine into the deeper layer of the dermis, and are applied to be permanent in nature. They generally require repeated treatments to remove.
Amateur tattoos are usually smaller, lighter in colour and applied more superficially using handheld needles or homemade machines, which render them easier to remove.
Cosmetic tattoos are often referred to as permanent makeup, and are increasingly popular. Permanent eyeliners, eyebrows, and lip liners are commonly applied using the process of micropigmentation.. However, the inks used often contains pigments that are red, brown, white, or flesh coloured; inks containing titanium dioxide and iron oxide are difficult to remove.
In the past the removal of tattoos included destructive methods such as dermabrasion, salabrasion, chemical destruction, cryosurgery, electro-surgery, and surgical excision. Such methods often result in incomplete removal, and some degree of scarring and pigmentation. Advances in laser technology have revolutionized tattoo removal, using various wavelengths to target different colored pigments with relative ease and fewer complications than before.
Laser tattoo removal is a successful application of the theory of selective photothermolysis and depends on four factors:
- The laser light must penetrate sufficiently deep into the skin to reach the tattoo pigment.
- The laser light must be more highly absorbed by the tattoo pigment than the surrounding skin.
- The time duration (pulse duration) of the laser energy must be very short, so that the tattoo pigment is heated to decomposition temperature before its heat can dissipate to the surrounding skin.
- Sufficient energy must be delivered during each laser pulse to heat the pigment to decompose
One can observe some results immediately, but the majority of the fading occurs over the 7–8 week healing period between treatments. Complete laser tattoo removal requires multiple treatment sessions. Having more frequent treatments increases the risk of adverse effect and does not necessarily give better results.
At each treatment, some but not all of the pigment particles are effectively decomposed, and the smallest particles are removed by the body over the course of several weeks, which results in lightening of the tattoo. Any remaining larger ink particles are then targeted at subsequent treatment sessions, causing further lightening.
Side effects of laser tattoo removal includes the possibility of discoloration of the skin such as hypopigmentation (white spots, more common in darker skin), hyperpigmentation (dark spots), as well as textural changes.
The machine is paid for in just less than THREE MONTHS, based on only two treatments per day (Assumes six working days per week. Each treatment £55 + VAT).
Sidenote: A pair of laser goggles for the operator and an eye shield for the patient is included with the machine. Nu Tatouage can be operated by hand or by foot switch.
