Level 5 Tattoo Removal Training Course

Picosecond, Q-Switched technologies

A professional training course suited to the advanced criteria of tattoo removal.

Tattoo removal is gaining more popularity as laser technology keeps advancing. With the advent of Picosecond devices and continued development of Q-Switched technologies, tattoo removal is effective across the colour spectrum; with some caveats.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 young adults have ink and with an estimated 20% having tattoo regret. If we look at entire populations we start looking at 1 in 5 are inked; it is little wonder tattoo removal is becoming highly popular.

Dr Callaghan Condon, a consultant at the Blackrock Clinic, highlighted the seriousness of the procedure.

An incredibly high-intensity light beam shatters the pigments under the skin, and they splatter through the skin. There’s blood, so aerosolised [airborne] viruses are a real concern, as well as the potential for eye damage. It’s definitely a biohazard,

Dr Callaghan is not overreacting. If you shone a black light into a room with a tattoo removal procedure, it would look as though a gruesome murder was taking place. Tattoo removal should be performed in a sterile environment, a dedicated room that follows medical best practices for procedures that break the skin and atomise tissue & blood.

The process is designed to remove ink that was designed not to be removed. Intense pain, blistering, crusting and the need for multiple sessions is the real world outcome of the procedure.  Among the delayed complications pigmentary changes, hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation, paradoxical darkening of cosmetic tattoos and allergic reactions can be seen. Another common complication is the presence of residual pigmentation or ghost images. Scarring and textural changes are potential irreversible complications. In addition, tattoo removal can be a prolonged tedious procedure.

While technology has progressed and Picosecond Lasers represent the latest innovation in tattoo removal, it is a process that requires a high level of client consultation. A high degree of knowledge pertaining to Picosecond and Q-Switched laser platforms. Understanding wavelengths 755nm, 532nm, 1064nm, 585nm, 650nm and their application.
