Laser Tattoo Removal is a complex procedure that can be used to remove or lighten old tattoos, whether semi-permanent or permanent. Using a state-of-the-art laser the ink and/or pigment is broken down in the skin over a number of sessions, eventually ceasing to remain visible.
The process is not instant and you should be prepared to undergo a number of sessions before any satisfactory results can be achieved. This will be different and will depend on the individual tattoo and factors such as the tattoos age, whether removing ink or pigment, and the colours used within the tattoo. You will first need to book in for a free consultation and patch test prior to any treatment taking place.
How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
The laser will target the pigment/ink in the skin and will direct its energy into it. This will create a kind of ‘mini explosion’ of the tattoo, causing it to break up and disperse into the body. Your body’s own immune system will then naturally remove the particles of ink which in turn removes the tattoo.
Can Laser Tattoo Removal it work on any tattoo?
Laser Tattoo Removal can remove any tattoo that is red, yellow or black. It can not only be used to remove permanent ink tattoos, but also on Semi Permanent Makeup and Radiotherapy Dots (small dots of ink that are implanted into the skin to ‘mark the spot’ during radiotherapy treatment).
What will happen after a Laser Tattoo Removal session?
The tattoo will appear white/lighter in colour and may turn raised and red. Blistering and scabbing are normal reactions to this treatment however if you notice any sign of infection you should contact your GP. The treatment area will need to be cared for carefully after treatment, and full aftercare instructions will be given and explained during your treatment.
