Market Synopsis

Q-switched lasers to hold the dominant market share

Q-switched lasers are viewed as the gold standard for laser-enabled tattoo removal. These systems are more effective in removing tattoos and have a well-established safety profile, despite certain limitations. Currently, laser tattoo removal requires several sessions spread out over time. Some of the prominent limitations of Q-switched tattoo removal include remaining traces of pigment, longer treatment duration with large gaps between sessions, ink retention, and side effects such as dyschromia and blistering. Several initiatives are being undertaken to overcome such limitations through technique modifications, thus bringing methods such as R20, R0, the combination of imiquimod and Q-switch laser, and so on.

This makes Q-switch lasers the mainstay of laser tattoo removal solutions, as demonstrated in several studies and reviews. There are situations where more than one type of laser is used for removing multicolored tattoos, and appropriate laser selection further improves treatment outcomes while ensuring low scarring or pigmentary alterations. Black and dark blue pigments respond well to the Q-switched ruby laser, as do green pigments. Additionally, the Q-switched Nd: YAG 532 nm laser efficiently clears red pigments in an average of three sittings.
