Laser Tattoo Removal
Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tools for effectively removing complex and multi-colored tattoos. Multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser systems with frequency-doubled KTP are able to produce very short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of skin to be selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments.
Highest Single-Pulse Energy for Maximum Effectiveness
Fotona's QX MAX Q-Switched laser technology generates single nanosecond pulses, which are more efficient at removing pigment . Single pulses are not affected by the optical shielding phenomenon arising from pigment destruction. Consequently more and deeper lying structures can be reached and removed, and laser treatment efficacy and efficiency in a single session are significantly greater.
Different Wavelengths for Multicolored Tattoos
Fotona's QX MAX laser system offers four wavelengths in one system, enabling treatments for virtually all commonly used pigment colors. The QX MAX transmits extremely short energy pulses that cause tattoo pigments to break into smaller particles that are then removed by the body's own immune system. Most tattoo procedures take only a few minutes, but several treatments are typically necessary to completely remove a tattoo. Three-week intervals between sessions are required to allow pigment residue to be cleared by the body.
Advanced Technology for Safer & More Precise Treatments
Homogeneity of a laser beam profile ensures greater safety during treatments since laser energy is evenly distributed across the treated area. Epidermal damage is minimized and the risk of bleeding, tissue splatter and transient textural changes in the skin is decreased. Fotona’s advanced Q-switched laser technology relies on groundbreaking solutions such as OPTOflex® and Vacuum Cell Technologies to produce an almost perfectly homogeneous beam profile, resulting in safer and more effective treatments.

Pre and Post-Care Instructions
CONTRAINDICATIONS to treatment: history of melanoma, suspicious lesions, keloid scar formation, healing problems, active infections, open lesions, herpetic lesions, cold sores, recent use of Accutane, tetracycline or St. John’s wort in the last year, autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Scleroderma, Vitiligo, pregnancy or nursing. Please notify Dr. Kent if you have ever had a reaction to your tattoo ink (especially red/orange/pink ink). Do not get prolonged sun exposure, tan or use self tanner in areas to be treated for 4 weeks prior. Avoid any irritant chemicals to area for the week prior
Some redness and swelling is normal and may feel similar to a mild sunburn. This should resolve in a few days to a week. Some people may react more and have redness up to a month or longer. Notify Dr. Kent if it persists longer than a week. During the next week, you may develop a fine crust. DO NOT PICK AT THEM. You may have blistering, crusting/scabbing that may last for several days to a week. Keep area moist and clean. Notify Dr. Kent if it persists longer than a week. Small blisters may occur. Keep area clean. You should apply cool compresses/ice for comfort. Gently cleanse the area twice daily with gentle cleanser. We recommend Kent’s Nourishing Cleanser. Avoid irritants (glycolics acid, salicylic acid, retinoids, etc) until all redness/swelling resolves. After the wound has healed, apply sunscreen with zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide for at least six weeks. Shaving in the treated area should be avoided until healed. Avoid strenuous exercise for 3 to 4 as sweating may cause irritation. Do not use any type of make-up or cover up until healed and approved by Dr Kent
I understand the above instructions. I understand the risks and signs of side effects and complications such as severe redness, swelling, blistering, burns, ulcers, pain, or signs of infection and I will call the office and Dr. Kent immediately if I have any questions or concerns
Notify Dr. Kent if you have any questions, concerns, problems. DR KENT CLINIC contact: 0380523082, 0374978788 , 0123954223, 0122211841
