Tattoo removal

The equipement laser electively hits the pigment that, due to the thermolytic effect, melts or shatters and then it's eliminated by so-called cells "scavenger" of the skin.
Unfortunately, not always the elimination of the tattoo is so simple, because, if the tattoo is monochrome is enough to use a single type of laser; in the case of polychromatic (more colors) is necessary, depending on the color, use different types of lasers: Neodymium: YAG laser to black-brown, Q-switched alexandrite for green, Q-switched ruby laser for red-orange.
The laser system use at the Centro Medico Polispecialistico is Laser Nd: YAG Qsw able to produce a "photoacoustic" effect that shatters the cells of the dermis containing the tattoo pigment. This kind of laser, due to the double wavelength, allows to remove more colous using a single system. The session numbers depends of the type of tattoo, of the colours, of the deep and other  characteristics. Usually the amateur tattoo are removed in 1-4 sessions (A session every 4 weeks), while the professional tattoo needs more sessions - on average 10 - (A session every  6/8 weeks).
