Contrary to popular belief, tattoos are not permanent and can be removed when no longer wanted. Tattoo Removal methods have come a long way in the last 10 years with new Tattoo Removal Lasers making the process easier than ever before. Whether you’ve grown out of it, changed your religious beliefs or you simply do not like it any more, we offer multiple techniques for effective removal.
Laser or Non Laser Removal
Not all tattoos are the same. We can advise you as to what method is best for you with minimal scarring. Our consultations are done by skin care professionals who not only know how to remove the ink, but will also take care of your skin. We aim to remove the ink with minimal skin damage.
It is important to understand that tattoos vary greatly. Older ink is usually easier to remove, colours can be more challenging. Only an expert that is experienced in both lasers and non laser techniques is advise on all the options that are available to you
How does it work?
LOII active Q-Switched Laser generates a high powered beam of light in an extremely short pulse which is the most suitable laser for tattoo removal treatment. The short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them
down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse OT the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.
How is the treatment carried out?
The skin will be cleaned and then the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible ‘clicking’ noise is often heard as the ink particles shatter.
How does the treatment feel?
Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well.
How does the skin look after treatment?
An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender tor a few hours and can be red and swollen tor up to 48 hours. Some tattoos will form a graze which must be left to heal naturally. Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over the next 6 to 8 weeks as the body disperses it.
