Q Switch Laser Tattoo Removal Technology
The highest performance Q-switched laser on the market, period.
Gold-standard performance delivered by TRUE Lasers, not dye-kits or Laser-Pumped-Laser HPs.
Quanta Q Plus C We have the absolute best and newest laser platform on the market today.
The Quanta Q Plus C laser is the world’s most advanced and powerful laser technology, handmade in the same country as Ferraris – Italy – so you are truly getting the best of the best.
‘Plus C' sets the standard by offering 3 true wavelengths in one device, which is unique to the industry. These 3 wavelengths provide treatment on a wide spectrum of ink colours including black, red, orange, yellow, purple and even the stubborn green and blue inks thanks to the rare Ruby wavelength.
The Q-Plus C is a medical laser and represents the most powerful three-wavelength Q-switched laser system for the removal of pigmented lesions and all tattoo colours on the spectrum. It is the only available laser on the market to offer all 3 true laser wavelengths, the Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser, the Q-Switched Nd:YAG 532 nm laser and the 694 nm Ruby laser to treat the difficult green, blue and sky blue pigments. The Q-switched Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser is indicated for (targets) dark blue and black ink, while the Q-switched Nd:YAG 532 nm laser is indicated for (targets) red, orange, yellow and purple pigments.
An exclusive characteristic of our Q-Plus C laser is its square/flat top beam Optibeam II technology. This feature allows for safer and more effective treatments, thus reducing/preventing the occurrence of blisters.
Most tattoo removal lasers offer a circular spot size (laser beam) resulting in overlap when treating the skin. This circular spot size causes the energy to be more focused in the overlapping area of skin, consequently delivering too much heat to the surrounding tissue rather than simply targeting the tattoo pigment.
The excessive heat within the tissue may then manifest itself as blisters, and potential scarring thereafter. With the flat topped, square spot size that Optibeam technology offers, the energy distribution is homogeneously delivered over the treated skin, thereby providing more efficient laser treatments. This revolutionary square spot size (laser beam) our Q-Plus C offers, prevents the occurrence of this overlap and blistering, commonly seen with most lasers.
STR Clinic has your comfort at the forefront and have invested in a dedicated cooling system designed to ensure pain is minimised during and after treatment. The cooling system can reach minus 35℃ making it the most effective way of cooling and also reducing the risk of thermal injury
Why don’t we use the Pico????
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the new PicoSure tattoo removal technology, and we’ve been asked whether we’re up for switching away from our Quanta Q Plus C. The answer? Nope!
It all comes down to physics.
In a nutshell, different wavelengths have different impacts on specific colors of tattoo ink within the skin. You need a series of different wavelengths to properly hit the depth of blacks, greens, yellows, reds, and other colors. There’s no such thing as a “do-it-all” wavelength. With the Quanta Q-Plus C, there are three TRUE wavelengths, whose energy represents the depth of the ink in your skin. These wavelengths have the strongest ability of any laser to break down inks. 1064: This wavelength hits black, which is the deepest and easiest to remove. 532: This wavelength hits red/orange, which is the most shallow in the skin. 694: This wavelength hits blue/green, which can be some of the toughest to remove.
The PicoSure uses one wavelength: 755. Why? In the early days of laser tattoo removal, 755 was the golden number. Although these lasers work, it doesn’t go deep enough to hit the blacks, let alone remove them. When it comes to blues and greens, the wavelength goes past them. PicoSure lasers also use a circular laser beam, whereas the Quanta uses a square beam. The benefit of the square beam is that skin damage is minimized because it stacks pulses precisely and evenly. A circular beam overlaps, damaging the skin.
Still not convinced? Science speaks for itself in a 2013 study by the Journal of the Laser and Health Academy in which researchers concluded that, The published literature and our preliminary results seem to indicate that current “picosecond” lasers are not expected to have a significantly better tattoo clearance effect in comparison with the “gold standard” Q-switched nanosecond tattoo lasers. … It is our opinion that top-of-the-line Q-switched nanosecond lasers will remain the devices of choice for tattoo removal.”
