How Q-switched Nd: YAG Lasers work
Q-switched means ‘quality-switched’ and refers to the fact that this laser targets short pulses of light energy at a tattoo which cracks open the pigments.
The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser delivers light of specific wavelengths in ultra-short (nanosecond), and very high peak energy pulses.
This treatment is repeated until removal, or satisfactory fading is achieved.
