WHAT IS TATTOO REMOVAL?
Several factors come into play when considering removing a tattoo. Dermabrasion and removal creams can fail to take off the whole tattoo, whilst other methods involving incisions or burning and can cause pain or scarring.
Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe, and produces fantastic results. The advanced Nd:YAG, Q-switched laser technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system. It usually takes several treatment sessions to ensure success, with minimum 6 - 8 week intervals between sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does tattoo removal work?
Tattoo ink seen as a foreign body in the skin layer. Laser light targets the pigment in the ink that causes photo acoustic fragmentation of the ink particles. These particles are removed by phagocytes and drained out of the body through the lymphatic system.
What can I expect after treatment?
There will be redness and swelling and a white frosting over the tattoo straight after treatment. This is perfectly normal and indicates the treatment has picked up the ink. The area may then scab over and could take up to 2 weeks to fully heal. Your laser specialist will discuss aftercare with you.
