Tattoo Removal with Laser

Laser tattoo removal has become one of the most popular and results-driven treatments due to the increasingly popular method of permanent body ink. Unfortunately for some, the body art that was once worn proud becomes a regretful memory. Fortunately, there’s a safe, effective, and easy way to permanently remove unwanted tattoos for good. In the last decade, tattoo removal has been revolutionised by laser technology.

Laser technology is clinically proven to phenomenally fade and remove tattoos by producing certain wavelengths of short-pulse laser light that specifically target the tattoo ink without damaging any surrounding skin. Once the ink is absorbed by the intense light, the ink is then broken down into tiny particles which are absorbed by the bloodstream and then naturally decomposed out of the body safely.

Laser Technology can also treat overall:

  • Tattoo removal

  • Pigmentation (freckles, sunspots etc.)

  • Acne and oily skin

  • Open pores

  • Uneven skin texture

  • Carbon crème rejuvenation

With all laser treatments, the laser light produced into the skin is targeting the focal points of the area in need of correction without harming the surrounding skin.

Treatable Tattoos

Virtually, all tattoos can be treated. All ink colours are treatable, however, very light colours such as light blue, yellow, and white are difficult and require more treatments to fade

Permanent Make-up Tattoos

Cosmetic tattoos or ‘permanent make-up’ can also be removed with laser treatment. Tattooed eyebrows are treatable areas that can be removed safely. Extra precaution is taken when working around the eye area to ensure the ink is effectively removed without damage to the eyes.

Tattoo Sessions

Most clients undertake an average of 6-12 treatments to achieve optimal results. While some fading may be apparent after only several sessions, more treatments are recommended to reach the removal of the unwanted tattoo. Factors that contribute to how many sessions are required and treatment effectiveness include:

  • The layering of tattoos

  • The type of ink used

  • The presence of particular colours in the tattoo that do not respond well on removals, such as pinks, yellows, and light blues.

  • The age of the tattoo itself

FAQ:

How often can I have a treatment?

Treatments may be performed approximately 6-8 weeks apart, giving the area sufficient time to heal between sessions. This minimises the chances of scarring and other complications.

Does it hurt?

While laser treatment can cause slight discomfort, this is usually only minor and is comfortable with a numbing agent.

Are there any side effects of laser tattoo removal?

Some side effects are possible with laser tattoo removal, though these are usually minor and do not last long. The most common side effects for a medical grade, Q-switched lasers, include redness, swelling, and very minor blistering.

Can the tattoo area be re-tattooed?

Absolutely, once the treated area has fully healed, it’s perfectly fine for the skin to be re-tattooed.
