Laser Tattoo Removal Clinical Research
The medical research community agrees: Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers are the best solution to unwanted tattoos.
Decades of clinical research have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers for tattoo removal and other epidermal and dermal pigmentation removal treatments. Q-switching, flat top beams, variable spot sizes, and many other technical features of Astanza systems are greatly favored by the medical community.
Astanza’s Duality and Revolution lasers represent the peak of tattoo removal technology. The below studies show the powerful results possible with such quality Q-switched Nd:YAG technology.
