The Laser System

laser tattoo removal alexandria virginiaGreat 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!

The Zimmer Cryo 6

laser tattoo removal alexandria virginiaAlthough laser tattoo removal is a very safe and quick procedure, many patients are apprehensive about being treated by a laser. Vanish Laser Clinic uses the Zimmer Cryo 6 to help alleviate any patient discomfort and blow away all concerns regarding the pain associated with laser tattoo removal.

The Cryo’s ability to numb treatment sites before, during, and after a session is what makes it the absolute best numbing solution for patients. Other clinics that offer ice packs are only able to numb the skin before treatment, and not during when most discomfort, if any, is experienced.

The Cryo works by focusing extremely cold air at a temperature of -30°C directly onto the treatment site. We even give patients the option of holding the air hose, giving them more comfort control during their treatment session.

At Vanish Laser Clinic, patient comfort and satisfaction is one of our goals. Our decision to invest in the Zimmer Cryo 6 is just one indication of our dedication to our patients.
