Ms T had 3 tattoos she wanted removed. One on her forearm, one on her ankle and one on her stomach. She had been treated several times before at another clinic in Melbourne and had fading on the ankle tattoo and fading on some colours of the stomach tattoo. The wrist tattoo remained quite dark as the previous treatments were probably done with an inadequate laser. We treated Ms T’s stomach with our Nd YAG laser, switching wavelengths for different colours. For her ankle and stubborn wrist tattoo, we employed our Ruby laser. This unit was purchased especially to treat colours which are difficult to remove with other lasers. Other machines either cannot treat these colours or rely on special handpieces which drastically reduce the power.
