A faster tattoo removal process

Screenshot of RAP-Speeds-Laser-Tattoo-Removal articleDr. Michael Kaminer led a promising study on tattoo removal that was published in the October issue of Lasers in Surgery and Medicine. When Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) technology is applied for one minute after each Q-switched (QS) laser tattoo removal pass, it clears the whitening caused by the previous QS laser pass. This allows physicians to perform additional effective laser passes immediately. According to this study, a tattoo that might take 10 office visits to remove under the current standard of care could be done in as little as two to three office visits using RAP.⁣

The top photo in the article is the original tattoo. The bottom photo shows the three zones after treatment. The left side of the tattoo was treated with current standard of care, the middle control zone was left untreated, and the right side applied the RAP technology after laser.⁣
