Most people want to get a tattoo and use it as an homage to something very important that happened in their life. Whether it’s about conquering a particular milestone or becoming a parent, those moments stay permanently engraved into your skin. Or, do they?
Thanks to modern technology, we have a bunch of different lasers specifically calibrated for tattoo removal. However, not all of them are the same. In fact, the vast majority of lasers come with certain caveats that may cause some predicaments, which is why most of them are frowned upon.
If you’re wondering which laser is the best for tattoo removal, take a moment and check out our synopsis of the device we use here at Bad Habits Tattoos.
Our Astanza Duality Laser
The Astanza Duality Laser is well-known for its effectiveness and versatility. It’s a state-of-the-art machine that utilizes the TruePower design for optimal energy output. On top of that, its high fluence capabilities allow it to penetrate deeper into the skin, and thus, treat more ink particles with minimal light scattering. Therefore, this laser guarantees fast treatment times and improved safety over other popular lasers.
When it comes to the question of what is the best laser for tattoo removal, it’s safe to say that Astanza Duality rates quite high on the list.
How Does It Work?
Even though the whole concept might seem complex and hard to comprehend, it’s not as challenging as it looks. The Astanza laser stands out from the rest thanks to its incredibly short pulse duration with high pulse energy. In other words, it utilizes photo-acoustic waves coupled with a pulse that’s as short as 6000-picoseconds.
Given that it can deliver up to 22J per cm2 of fluence, it’s safe to say that it can, and will, handle even the most stubborn inks without breaking a sweat. On top of that, Astanza Laser is well-known for its ability to handle a predicament in fewer sessions than most other models on the market.
One of the most significant secret weapons of this particular laser is the two specific wavelengths it’s able to produce. Both 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths are known to be incredibly effective even against the toughest colors. More importantly, they are safe to use on essentially any skin type because they leave the surrounding tissue completely unharmed.
The Importance of the Zimmer Cryo Machine
While the Astanza Duality Laser is an amazing machine, we don’t consider it complete without the Zimmer Cryo machine by its side. Many people decide against tattoo removal because they have heard stories that include excruciating pain and quite a bit of discomfort. This may be true in some instances, but it’s definitely not the case here, thanks to the Cryo machine.
The main role of this apparatus is to keep the treatment area cool and numb before, during, and after the procedure. As you can assume, numbing the treatment area by blowing cold air at -30C is more than enough to completely eliminate any possibility of you feeling uncomfortable.
The best thing about this particular machine is that it works with any skin type, and it doesn’t require you to have a determined pain tolerance as it doesn’t cause pain in the first place.
While there are a few alternatives to this, such as the use of lidocaine injections, ice packs, and lotions, the vast majority of those take too long to become effective. On top of that, misuse of ice packs and lotions can cause skin irritation and sometimes even permanent damage.
