TATTOO REMOVAL IS ALL ABOUT POWER
For the first time, through innovation and profound engineering, Photo Biotech NANO Probe hand
piece 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 joule single pulse output. Hence a
smaller base unit is required for power generation, thus the overall compact design. Resulting in the next
generation of Q-switch single pulse technology.
Photo Biotech NANO is an innovated, reliable and versatile Q-switch Nd:Yag laser for dermatological and
aesthetic indications, including tattoo removal, pigmented and dermal lesions, including melasma, tattoo,
epiderma nevi, ota, etc. Photo Biotech NANO is NOT a Passive-Q switch laser. It 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.
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. A tattoo laser must be capable of emitting adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment to provide an effective treatment.
Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) uses the principle of selective photothermolysis. 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 photoacoustic 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
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. For laser tattoo removal the selective destruction of tattoo pigments depends on four factors:
- The Color Of The Light Must Penetrate Sufficiently Deep Into The Skin To Reach The Tattoo Pigment.
- The Color Of The Laser Light Must Be More Highly Absorbed By The Tattoo Pigment Than The Surrounding Skin. Different Tattoo Pigments Therefore Require Different Laser Colors. The Time Duration (Pulse Duration) Of The Laser Energy Must Be 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 Must Be Delivered During Each Laser Pulse To Heat The Pigment To Fragmentation. If The Energy Is Too Low, Pigment Will Not Fragment And No Removal Will Take Place.
PROCEDURE PRICING & MONETIZATION
There are approximately 21,000 tattoo studios in the US. 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. In the US, there exists no ink-composition standard, and therefore there may be as many ink formulations as there are tattoo artists, each who seek a trademark-look for their body art. Today’s Laser Tattoo Removal devices require a level of sophistication and flexibility unheard of just a few short years ago.
Harris Interactive Polls, with tattoos on the rise, regrets have risen as well; though a strong majority still has no regrets, nearly one fourth (23%) of those with tattoos say they ever regret getting one – up from 14% in 2012.
