Buy Laser Tattoo Removal Equipment
Whether you have an established medical practice or are seeking to enter the field of aesthetics for the first time, there are a lot of factors to consider before making an informed purchase of tattoo removal laser equipment.

There are two main types of Q-switched lasers on the market: passively Q-switched and actively Q-switched. Passively Q-switched lasers produce pulses of energy capable of removing tattoos, but do not have the high-performance capabilities of larger, actively Q-switched laser systems.
Both the Astanza Duality and the Astanza Eternity (paired together to make the Astanza Trinity tattoo removal system) feature high levels of energy production and exceptionally short pulse widths for best-in-class peak power production. Make sure to consider peak power as you make your laser purchasing decision.
The go-to laser for most tattoo removal practitioners is an Nd:YAG laser, such as the Astanza Duality, because it is capable of producing the most versatile wavelengths: 1064 nm and 532 nm. The 1064 nm wavelength is a powerhouse for treating black, blue, and other dark ink colors; the 532 nm wavelength is highly effective for removing red, orange, pink, and other bright colors. These two powerful wavelengths can completely remove 95% of tattoos.
Elite practitioners who are worried about the remaining 5% of tattoos often invest in an additional Ruby laser (694 nm), such as the Astanza Eternity, or Alexandrite laser (755 nm) to compliment their purchase of an Nd:YAG laser. Both Ruby and Alexandrite wavelengths function very similarly and are excellently absorbed by difficult-to-treat ink colors such as lime green, teal, and turquoise.
The United States government considers laser tattoo removal to be a medical procedure. Therefore, tattoo removal laser equipment is classified as medical devices and regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Advanced actively Q-switched tattoo removal lasers require regular maintenance to perform at their best. These advanced laser systems have delicate technical and optical components that need periodic cleaning, calibration, and alignment. Without preventative maintenance and service by trained professionals, tattoo removal equipment will have a reduction in power and efficacy over time.
Because you probably plan to be performing tattoo removal for many years to come, it is important to choose a laser supplier that will provide ongoing service beyond the warranty expiration. After all, your tattoo removal laser is the cornerstone of your practice.
There are two things that every laser purchaser should consider when buying a laser: the quality of the laser system and the reputation of the laser manufacturer. When you buy a tattoo removal laser, you are also establishing an ongoing relationship with the laser supplier; you want to make sure that they provide the resources for your clinical operation to thrive.
In-depth training is essential for any tattoo removal practitioner to feel confident as they start treating patients. From assessing tattoos to discussing aftercare, there are a lot of details that have to be learned to provide top-notch service to your patients.
Astanza gives comprehensive practitioner education to all customers. During training, clients learn extensive details about the science and practice of laser tattoo removal, giving them a foundation of knowledge as they start performing this profitable procedure. Astanza clients will have access to Free Training and Clinical Support for as long as they own an Astanza laser. Free Training and Clinical Support includes access to a free clinical resource library, video consultations with Astanza biomedical engineers and access to complimentary training at New Look Laser College (Dallas location), and pre-scheduled training at Astanza headquarters.

The Astanza Trinity is the most powerful multi-wavelength laser on the market today. With three full-powered wavelengths and high peak power, the Trinity is the ultimate in ink removal technology. No other tattoo removal system can remove the full range of tattoo ink colors as quickly and produce such beautiful skin results.
Astanza specializes in working with practices serious about laser tattoo removal because this procedure is our core focus as a company. Our clients include leading dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas, and tattoo removal specialty clinics.

Many experienced practitioners upgrade to our technology to stay at the forefront of the tattoo removal industry.
Another important factor when determining the best removal equipment is wavelengths, pulse duration, and spot size. All lasers have options to utilize multiple wavelengths in order to effectively target different ink colors within the skin. The amount of power available within a pulse at a certain wavelength determines how efficiently a tattoo can be removed while leaving the remaining tissue unharmed. Learn more about pulse duration and the types of laser wavelengths in the next section.
The best tattoo removal laser will have a variety of spot sizes. Large spot sizes such as 10 mm target the deepest ink, while smaller ones such as 3mm target the ink closest to the surface. We find that starting with a larger spot size to target the deepest ink and working our way to the surface with smaller spot sizes is the most effective method to remove tattoos safely.
The Candela PicoWay Laser tattoo removal machine is top of our list. This machine uses a photoacoustic effect rather than a photothermal effect which reduces the risk of the skin heating and damaging the surrounding tissue. This laser comes with the wavelengths 1064 nm and 532 nm installed. 785 nm and 730 nm are separate handpieces that can be purchased to attach to the laser machine. We recommend this laser as your ultimate tattoo removal machine due to the variety of wavelengths available and photoacoustic technology. This is also the laser that we use in our studios. See our before & after gallery for results.
The Lutronic Spectra nano laser tattoo removal machine uses four wavelengths (1064 nm, 532 nm, 585 nm, 650 nm) to target all ink colors across the spectrum. It operates in short 5-10 ns pulses and has different spot sizes available.
The Q Plus laser tattoo removal machine can have two different laser sources inserted, the pure q-switched or hybrid q-switched technology. It also has 6 different configurations available for adaptability.
Pros: The Q Plus laser offers the Optibeam II handpiece which offers different flat-top spot sizes and contact skin cooler to keep the target area cool when treating. It also offers twain handpieces to treat hair removal with the Twain IPL or tattoo removal with the Twain 2940.
Cons: The Neatcell Hand-Held laser is not FDA certified and does not require a certified laser professional. It does not explain the 4 kinds of light intensity or 9 kinds of light output frequencies and will likely take longer to see complete removal results vs professional services. There is also the risk of hypopigmentation occurring due to the lack of knowledge and experience by the consumer. Given what you already know, the pen does not create a big enough spot size, have enough power, or pulse duration to effectively remove a tattoo.

This pico-second laser is the first affordable dual-wavelength (1064nm and 532nm) laser that provides tattoo removal, skin revitalization procedures for wrinkles and acne scars, and freckle, sunspot, and pigmented discoloration treatment.
There are different types of tattoo removal devices on the market, but not all lasers are created equal. Nanosecond lasers, which deliver pulses of light in nanoseconds, have been used for years. Picoseconds, on the other hand, are trillionths of a second. Studies show a picosecond laser removes tattoos faster and more completely than the existing nanosecond laser technology, resulting in upwards of 30% more ink clearance. How many treatments a patient will need depends on their tattoo size, tattoo colors, skin types, and other key factors. Several sessions may be necessary to effectively remove larger tattoos. Generally, treatments are spaced out with 4 to 6 weeks in between.
The PicoLazer is a must-have for any modern tattoo removal clinic or aesthetic practice. Provide safe, effective, fast tattoo removal with the PicoLazer aesthetic laser device and ensure what matters most for your patients: minimal downtime and high satisfaction rates. 041b061a72
