ClearLift provides us with a safe and effective tattoo removal system with minimal risk of skin damage. Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high-powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors. The ClearLift is a high-powered Q-switched laser that can operate two different wavelengths, which are effective on dark and bright colors alike. The 1064nm wavelength is ideal for treating darker ink colors (black, blue, and green), while the second wavelength – the 532nm – is effective for brighter ink colors (red, orange, and yellow). This treatment works by using a high-powered, short-pulsed beam of light delivered at exact wavelengths to the skin. The laser’s high-intensity light beams create a photoacoustic shock that breaks up the ink particles in the tattoo without causing thermal damage. In time, the body’s lymphatic system disposes of the ink fragments. This natural healing process causes the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring or discoloration.
