Tattoo removal with Harmony Q Switch
In our Fabskin centre in Warsaw we use a state-of-the-art laser – Harmony Q Switch. The laser accumulates energy in an ultrashort impulse. Pigment particles are disintegrated very quickly, therefore there is no risk of heating the light-cured tissues.
Laser Harmony Q Switch removes practically the entire tattoo. It is important to remember that in order to fully remove a tattoo, it is necessary to conduct a few sessions. Their number depends, among others, on the color, amount of ink, depth, skin color and the size of the tattoo. For the procedure to be successful it is very important to consult a specialist to recognize characteristic features of the tattoo. The deeper it is, the harder it gets to remove it.
How does the Harmony Q Switch laser work?
1. Thanks to the very short impulse there is no thermal damage of heated surrounding tissues. After a few sessions, the skin structure remains the same.
2. A light beam breaks the pigment into small particles which subsequently evaporate, making the tattoo lighter.
3. First sessions are conducted at around 4-week intervals. In the following stages of tattoo removal, the intervals are longer.
4. After the procedure, a patient feels a slight discomfort in the form of swelling and redness. The ailments subside usually after a few hours. Small blotches or scabs may also appear, which are a natural defensive reaction of the skin and disappear after a short period of time.
After a tattoo removal procedure:
– moisturize the skin,
– use high UV protection factors,
– scabs cannot be scratched off,
– sauna or swimming is not advised (up to 72 hours after the procedure).
Possible side effects of laser tattoo removal:
– allergic reactions,
– bacterial infection,
– incomplete pigment removal,
– change of skin structure – usually subsides within 1-3 years,
Contraindications for tattoo removal:
– very large tattoo size,
– tendency to develop scars,
– connective tissue diseases,

A consultation before the procedure will help to dispel any doubts regarding the laser tattoo removal procedure.
