The Laser System
Great results can only be achieved with the right technology. That is why Vanish Laser Clinic has invested in the advanced, multi-wavelength Astanza Trinity laser. One problem that many tattoo removal clinics run into is their inability to treat multicolored tattoos. This is primarily due to the fact that their laser does not support the right wavelengths to eliminate certain ink colors, specifically greens and blues.
Laser tattoo removal works by emitting different wavelengths of light energy through the skin to target and shatter different colors of ink pigment trapped in the dermis. Depending on the wavelength used and the color being treated, the ink particles will either absorb or reflect the light energy. Absorption is the key to laser tattoo removal as it causes the ink pigment to heat up and shatter.
Different wavelengths are able to treat a specific group of colors, so the more wavelengths a laser has, the more colors it is able to treat. Unlike other lasers, our versatile Astanza Trinity laser is equipped with three wavelengths – 1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694 nm. All of these wavelengths are safe to use on all skin types and allow for absorption across all tattoo colors. Here is a breakdown of which colors each wavelength treats:
- 1064 nm – black, brown, violet, dark blue
- 532 nm – red, orange, yellow, some greens
- 694 nm – bright blue and vivid green
Bright blues and greens are often considered untreatable by many clinics. That is because these colors are typically very resistant. Stubborn inks such as these require a special ruby wavelength, supported by our Trinity laser, to be effectively removed.
The Trinity laser at Vanish Laser Clinic is considered the gold standard in the laser tattoo removal industry. Its multiple wavelengths, ultra-quick pulses of laser energy, and exceptionally high peak power produce better ink shattering and faster clearance, ultimately leading to unmatched results.
Our Trinity is used by the top tattoo removal practices worldwide, and we are very proud to be the only laser clinic to offer this cutting-edge technology in Virginia, Maryland and DC. Contact us today to experience how effective Trinity tattoo removal at Vanish Laser Clinic is!
