FRACTAT is the absolute latest advancement in laser tattoo removal- unique to the Fotona family, and Skin Alert is the only establishment in Cairns that can offer this to you. As well as utilising the Q-switch YAG laser to shatter the ink, there is an additional step prior to this, using a fractionated hand piece to ablate away miniscule columns of skin over the tattoo.
This process allows for optimal clearance of the ink, reducing your number of visits and speeding up recovery time.

Q-switch Nd:YAG lasers are most commonly used for their high peak-power abilities which allows them to break up the pigment in the skin. Standard treatment is to use a YAG laser to ‘shatter’ the pigment into tiny pieces, which the body then removes via the lymphatics system over a period of weeks.
Here at Skin Alert we are proud to use Fotona lasers, and offer you the FRACTAT removal method. With Fractat, before we break up the pigment with the YAG laser, we will use a separate handpiece to ablate microscopic columns of skin away. This additional step allows for the YAG laser to work even better, removing more ink in fewer sessions. Not all tattoos may require this technique, but we will discuss that with you during your consultation.
Due to all of these factors you may need anywhere from 4-10+ sessions. During your initial consultation this will be discussed and a treatment plan will be devised for you.
Pricing is dependent on tattoo size, density of ink, colours of ink, and how many sessions you will need. During your initial consultation we will discuss this with you since all cases will be different. Prices for small tattoos start from $100.
If you are considering having a tattoo removed and have any additional questions or concerns, please contact us to arrange a complimentary consult with one of our friendly experts.
