Laser wavelength must be carefully considered when removing pigments, especially with multi-colored tattoos and vascular lesions. The laser wavelength is what determines which pigment color or chromophore will be predominantly targeted by the laser to selectively remove it. To ensure safe and effective treatments, you’ll need an optimized selection of wavelengths to target a wide range of pigments.
The QX MAX’s Nd: YAG laser provides the ideal platform for initiating wavelength conversions to create a true multi-wavelength pigment removal solution. The QX MAX offers four treatment wavelengths in a single system:
– 1064 nm Nd: YAG to treat and remove dark pigments,
– 532 nm KTP for lighter pigments, vascular lesions and red, tan, purple and orange tattoo inks,
– 650 nm dye for green tattoo inks,
– 585 nm dye for sky blue inks and vascular lesions.
