How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?

Unwanted tattoos can be removed gradually over a series of sessions using a laser. The energy from the laser breaks down the tattoo ink into tiny fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed out of the body. Tattoos are formed by introducing ink particles in to the skin. These are too large for the body to break down, so instead it encapsulates them in a network of collagen fibres as the skin heals, trapping the ink and creating the tattoo. Our laser affects the ink, not your skin. The light hits the ink and breaks up the particles into smaller pieces. The body then removes them naturally via your own elimination system.

Will the tattoo be removed in one treatment?

No, the light can only shatter a certain amount of ink in one treatment, so several treatments are needed at 2 to 3 month intervals to work through the layers. You will notice the tattoo fades more and more with every treatment you have. A test patch will be performed before a full session goes ahead to check how you react to the treatment. A professional tattoo can take between 5 and 7 treatments although some Indian ink and amateur tattoos can be removed within 3 treatments and sometimes only take 1 or 2. There are several factors that influence the number of treatments required, these can be down to how easily you heal, how deep the ink is in the skin, and the types of ink that were used. Generally speaking the longer you have had the tattoo and the darker it is, the easier it is to remove.

More About Laser Tattoo Removal

Will my tattoo disappear completely?

It is possible, but we cannot guarantee that your tattoo will be removed completely, this is due to the same factors that affect the number of treatments required, such as the depth of ink in the skin, type of ink, healing ability etc. certain areas may contain deeper ‘pockets’ of ink that are very difficult to remove.

What happens to my skin after treatment?

The immediate after effect of the treatment is that the skin turns temporarily white, this is due to water evaporation and disappears with 15 minutes. The skin also swells and feels like mild sunburn, this usually disappears within 24-48 hours. The body continues to remove ink after the treatment and the skin is usually back to normal within a week. Full aftercare instructions are given at the consultation.

Are there any side affects?

Sometimes bleeding and/or blistering can occur; again there are varying reasons why this happens. We will adjust the treatment to try to prevent this from happening so the skin can heal properly. * Complimentary consultation and patch test required one week before the procedure
