Best laser treatment, better skin repair
Laser practitioner Jan Aarts has achieved an important breakthrough with his latest laser, the PicoSure. This extra strong laser removes tattoos faster and causes less skin stress. EmuCare ensures the perfect after treatment.
How many people regret a tattoo?
“Approximately ninety percent regrets having a tattoo done. But only 20 to 25 percent has the tattoo effectively removed. The cost are high, a small tattoo can readily cost 1500 euro to have it lasered off. In addition, it is not always highly needed, e.g. when a picture is in a place in which it does not really disturb. But if you are fed up with the Tweety tattoo you had done during your school years, if the name of your ex is still on your arm after years or a tattoo makes the prospect of a career more difficult, people often grab the phone.”
And they end up with you. How does the removing actually work?
“A tattoo is a layer of ink in the upper layer of the skin that consists of small globules of ink that are being encapsulated by the body. The encapsulation makes sure that the tattoo stays in place. A laser breaks the encapsulation which pulverises the ink. In the weeks to months after this the body clears away the ink. Subsequently you break away another layer of ink with the laser. This way you move step-by-step. Depending on the quantity of ink that is used and how deep the ink is embedded in the skin, you need more or less treatments.”
So you are the only one in the Benelux with a new laser. Tell us.
“Nowadays there are three different type of lasers. The YAG-laser and the Rubylaser both work in the nanosecond. The laser warms up the ink in an extremely short pulse. With a great deal of power the ink bursts apart subcutaneously. The new Picosure laser has such a short pulse – picoseconds – that it is too short to warm up the ink. This immediately causes some sort of shock-pressure wave in the skin that pulverises the ink very fast. You have a better pulverisation of the ink. Even difficult colours like green and blue can be removed much better. Besides, the client needs fewer treatments than with other lasers. It is an enormous development, especially in comparison with twenty years ago. In that time a tattoo was cut away, scraped off and abrased. The scarves were as big as operation wounds. When the laser showed up the doctors came round pretty quickly.”
How does the skin react to such a laser treatment?
“You can do quite a bit of harm with a laser, especially when it is used in the wrong with. With a laser you get a serious reaction to the skin. The YAG-laser tends to irritate the skin in a way that it brings about a graze. The new laser does not really destroy the skin anymore, but causes blisters. These blisters disappear within a week to fourteen days. They look serious but always diminish again fast. Whatever laser you use, you always get a vigorous skin reaction and that is easy to treat with EmuCare.”
