Pigmentation issues like birthmarks can cause frustration, especially if they’re in a highly visible spot like the face. Another concern that many people face is tattoos that are no longer wanted. This could be a name that no longer brings happy memories with it, or a design that does not fit your lifestyle any longer. With Q-Switched Nd:YAG, you can reclaim your smooth, natural looking skin.
Here at Ideal Face & Body, we offer treatments from Lumenis® that are designed to rejuvenate and brighten your skin. With the M22™ device, the Q-Switched Nd:YAG module is capable of fading even the darkest tattoos. Learn more by visiting our practice in Beverly Hills, CA.

How Does Q-Switched Nd:YAG Work?
Q-Switched Nd:YAG can give you a fresh start by gently removing any unwanted pigment or discoloration. The laser deeply penetrates the skin in order to break up the ink particles in an unwanted tattoo, so the body can naturally flush out the ink.
Similar to the other treatment modules that come with M22™, a Q-Switched Nd:YAG treatment can be performed during your lunch break. This is why it is commonly referred to as a “lunch-time” treatment. There is little to no downtime associated with this treatment and you can see visible results in as few as one session.
The Q-Switched Nd:YAG device emits strong bursts of energy at short intervals, so the tattoo ink can be efficiently broken up quickly. This device stands out from other laser tattoo removal options due to this feature.
Q-Switched Nd:YAG can be performed with other M22™ modules, which you can learn more about by visiting one of the pages below.
These modules are able to treat unwanted hair, unwanted tattoos, and over 40 different skin concerns.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Virtually anyone who has discoloration or an unwanted tattoo can benefit from this treatment. A series of treatments may be necessary to achieve the results you’re looking for, which is something we can discuss with you at your consultation. There are five spot sizes that can be selected with this device, meaning every treatment can be customized to fit your needs.
