TATTOO REMOVAL IS ALL ABOUT POWER
Photo Biotech Q100 Probe handpiece is constructed as a power containment device and acutely controlled power emitter. Therefore, minimal power is required is to produce the adequate and necessary 1.6 joule pulse output. Hence a
smaller base unit is required for power generation, thus the overall compact design.
Photo Biotech Q100 is an innovated, reliable and versatile Q-switch Nd:Yag laser for dermatological and
aesthetic indications, including:
- tattoo removal and pigmented lesions
- dermal lesions,
- epidermal lesions
Photo Biotech Q-100 is a totally new design against traditional laser concept, to provide high performance laser functionalities in a very compact design. This laser system is benefited by multiple unique designs including:
- the special Q-switch component and polarizer
- optimized laser cavity mode selection
- very light and small handheld probe
- advanced cap-shaped laser distribution technology, which ensures a stable and uniformly distributed laser beam, to emit PURE 1064nm or 532nm laser beam, so as to achieve the best treatment result.
Theory of Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoo removal is most commonly performed using lasers that break down the ink particles in the tattoo. The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. All tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra. Photo Biotech Q-100 capable of emitting adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment to provide an effective treatment.
Methods of Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser Tattoo Removal:
Q100 (LASER) uses the principle of selective photo-thermolysis. Quality-switching (Q-switching) is a means of creating very short pulses (5−100 ns) with extremely high peak powers. The QS lasers also produce an additional photo-acoustic effect, which results from the generation of shock waves following laser irradiation. Such waves then cause vibrational damage to cellular structures and rupture membranes, thereby disrupting melanosomes and tattoo ink particles. The QS lasers have changed the way the dermatologists approach these conditions and have become the mainstay of treatment. QS laser treatment is a safe and effective procedure.
yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser 1064 nm emits light that penetrates 2−3 mm into dermis and hence is suitable for deeper dermal pigmentation such as found in nevus of Ota. By passing the beam through the potassium-titanyl-phosphate (KTP) crystal, the frequency is doubled and the wavelength is halved (532 nm). A shorter wavelength penetrates less deeply and therefore is more useful for removal of epidermal pigment such as in ephelids.

Mechanism of Laser Action Tatt00 Removal
The energy density (fluence), expressed as joules/cm2, is determined prior to each treatment as well as the spot size and repetition rate (hertz).
Tattoos consist of thousands of particles of tattoo pigment suspended in the skin. While normal human growth and healing processes will remove small foreign particles from the skin, tattoo pigment particles are permanent because they are too big to be removed. Laser treatment causes tattoo pigment particles to heat up and fragment into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are then removed by normal body processes.
Laser tattoo removal is a successful application of the theory of selective photothermolysis (SPTL). However, unlike treatments for blood vessels or hair the mechanism required to shatter tattoo particles uses the photomechanical effect.
In this situation the energy is absorbed by the ink particles in a very short time, typically nanoseconds. The surface temperature of the ink particles can rise to thousands of degrees but this energy profile rapidly collapses into a shock wave.
This shock wave then propagates throughout the local tissue (the dermis) causing brittle structures to fragment. Hence tissues are largely unaffected since they simply vibrate as the shock wave passes.
Q100 laser tattoo removal the selective destruction of tattoo pigments delivers on four factors:
- The Color Of The Light Penetrate Sufficiently Deep Into The Skin To Reach The Tattoo Pigment.
- The Color Of The Laser Light Must Is More Highly Absorbed By The Tattoo Pigment Than The Surrounding Skin.
- The Time Duration (Pulse Duration) Of The Laser Energy Is Very Short, So That The Tattoo Pigment Is Heated To Fragmentation Temperature Before Its Heat Can Dissipate To The Surrounding Skin. Otherwise, Heating Of The Surrounding Tissue Can Cause Burns Or Scars. For Laser Tattoo Removal, This Duration Should Be On The Order Of Nanoseconds.
- Sufficient Energy Is Delivered During Each Laser Pulse To Heat The Pigment To Fragmentation.
Laser Parameters that Affect Results
Basic Elements of a Laser
Several colors of laser light (measured as wavelengths of laser energy) are used for tattoo removal, from visible light to near-infrared radiation. Different lasers are better for different tattoo colors. Consequently, multi-color tattoo removal almost always requires the use of two or more laser wavelengths. Tattoo removal lasers are usually identified by the lasing medium used to create the wavelength (measured in nanometers (nm)):
- Q-switched Frequency-doubled Nd:Yag: 532 nm. This laser creates a green light which is highly absorbed by red and orange targets. Useful primarily for red and orange tattoo pigments, this wavelength is also highly absorbed by melanin (the chemical which gives skin color or tan) which makes the laser wavelength effective for age spot or sun spot removal.
- Q-switched Nd:YAG: 1064 nm. This laser creates a near-infrared light (invisible to humans) which is poorly absorbed by melanin, making this the only laser suitable for darker skin. This laser wavelength is also absorbed by all dark tattoo pigments and is the safest wavelength to use on the tissue due to the low melanin absorption and low hemoglobin absorption. This is the wavelength of choice for tattoo removal in darker skin types and for black ink.
Photo Biotech Easy to Use Preset Software
Preset software includes: Pulse width or pulse duration is a critical laser parameter. Q100 switched lasers has the appropriate pulse durations for tattoo removal.
The shorter pulses have a safer and more efficient removal method because the peak power of the pulse is greater. Spot size, or the width of the laser beam, affects treatment. Fluence or energy density is another important consideration. Fluence is measured in joules per square centimeter (J/cm.). It is important to be treated at high enough settings to fragment tattoo particles. All Photo Biotech technology comes with advance yet simplified easy to use functions; minimizing the need to memorize every possible energy parameter.

GROWTH MARKET BREAKDOWN
The tattoo removal market is expected to reach USD $4.79 billion by 2023
There are approximately 21,000 tattoo studios in the US ans Canada. These artists create
Tattoos which are, on average, 4 x 4 inches or smaller.
These tattoos have historically been black-ink, yet we have recently witnessed an explosion in vibrant, multi-color tattoos.
