Tattoos are now more fashionable than they ever have been but, even so, there will always be the occasional person who regrets having a tattoo and would like to have it removed. However, though tattoos may fade over time, they will never completely disappear naturally. This is where laser tattoo removal is a saviour — unwanted tattoos can be effectively removed or faded back enough to allow a new tattoo to be placed over the top of them.
Tattoo removal by laser
Removing unwanted tattoos using light energy from a laser beam is suitable for all skin types, although darker skins may require a larger number of sessions. By using a state-of-the-art ND Yag laser, we minimise the risk of changes in skin tone on darker skins. The area treated will tend to appear paler during the course of treatment but usual skin tone will gradually return once the treatment has ended.
During the treatment session, clients may experience some discomfort but sessions are generally less than an hour in duration and may be as short as five minutes, so for most people the discomfort is bearable. Topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to sensitive individuals.
Our technicians are highly trained and experienced so the chances of scarring are minimal. If there is some change in skin texture, a subsequent course of scar reduction treatments may be a further option.
