Tattoo Removal

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

We have the latest improved technology to help remove unwanted tattoos. 

The 1064NM Laser can remove black, blue and dermal pigmentation while the 532NM laser can remove red, orange and purple ink.  The third wavelength 694NM targets pale colours.

Amateur tattoos tend to be the quickest to remove which should take between one to six treatments.  Professional tattoos can vary considerably generally needing between six to twelve treatments.  Treatment sessions are carried out every twelve weeks.

Am I suitable?

We do a thorough assessment before doing a patch test on a small area of each colour. 

When you are having laser tattoo removal you must not have any fake tan on natural tan on the skin as it can take up the lasers energy and can cause burning of the skin which would be less effective.  We won’t be able to carry out the procedure if you have been exposed to the sun within the last thirty days of treatment.

There are certain medications that can make the skin light-sensitive but this will be discussed in your consultation.

Possible side-effects

After treatment the area may be uncomfortable. 

We recommend the use of effective cream which will be discussed at your consultation.  Sometimes there can be a blister formation after the treatment.  It can occasionally become lighter or darker but this usually improves over time.

Aftercare

You must stay out of the sun after this treatment.  The skin is much more prone to burning, especially in the first six weeks.

Skin must be kept clean and dry to reduce the chance of infection.

Cold compressions can be applied.  Aloe vera is excellent and should be applied once a day.

Do not pick any scabs to prevent scarring and you should always use a SPF cream when exposed to the sun following laser tattoo removal.
