Tattoo Removal by IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

A new approach to tattoo removal is IPL. Similar to a Laser, Intense Pulsed Light is a minimally invasive technique that uses high intensity light. However, the light isn't focused in a monochromatic beam, but in a broad spectrum field. Some reports indicated it is as effective as lasers and is less painful than laser removal. The skin is first treated with a cooling gel, and then rapid bursts of light are applied with an IPL wand. Treatments are spaced 2 weeks to a month apart. You should be able to see results after the first or second session.

Shown in the picture is a Combo Diode Laser and Intense Pulsed Light System that sells for about $6k. It produces both focused laser light and broad based light with a pulses lasting a tenth of a second. The advantage of the system is that ink colors that don't respond well to Laser are effectively removed with IPL.
