Q5 Yag Laser

The Q5 YAG Laser uses a combination of wavelength and pulse duration to create a focused beam of light. During treatment, it safely passes through the skin to break up and reduce the appearance of unwanted tattoos and pigmented lesions.

This laser provides a safe and effective way to remove unwanted regions of color—whether it’s tattoo ink, freckles, sunspots, or other pigmentation irregularities–resulting in more evenly-colored skin.

Am I a Candidate for Q5 YAG Laser Treatment?

Most healthy people who want to remove unwanted tattoos or pigmented lesions are candidates for this procedure.

Q5 Yag Lasers are designed to reduce the appearance of:

  • Tattoo ink, especially blue, black, and red inks
  • Freckles
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Sunspots or other signs of skin damage

As with any procedure, be sure to discuss your health history with Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien before receiving laser treatment.

How Q5 YAG Laser Treatments Work

Q5 YAG Lasers use a very specific combination of wavelength and pulse duration to ensure that the light passes through the outer layers of skin and reaches the underlying patches of ink or pigment.

As this occurs, the unwanted ink or pigment rapidly absorbs the light, heats up, and breaks down. The body then carries away or sheds the fragmented particles of ink and pigment.

After working closely with Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien to identify target areas, your Q5 YAG Laser treatment will be administered quickly and on an outpatient basis.

What Happens After Q5 YAG Laser Treatment?

Q5 Yag Laser Treatments are fairly straightforward and comfortable. The recovery period is minimal, although you may experience some degree of redness, swelling, or soreness immediately following a treatment. Follow Dr. Fogleman and Dr. Benien’s instructions, and, if advised, you can use of a cold compress or light painkillers after treatment.

After your Q5 Yag Laser treatment, monitor how effectively the appearance of the unwanted tattoo or pigmented lesion has been reduced. During future appointments with Dr. Benien, you can determine if additional YAG Laser treatments are necessary.
