HOW DOES A TATTOO REMOVAL LASER WORK?
Q-Switched Lasers generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse and are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatment. The very short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments. View video link
HOW DOES THE SKIN LOOK AFTER TREATMENT?
An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
In rare cases pigmentation changes can occur leaving the skin whiter or darker. Sometimes a change in skin texture or scarring can occur, particularly if any scabs are not allowed to heal properly. Finally, there is the possibility of a loss of the natural tanning ability in the areas treated. All of these usually improve over time and it is extremely rare for there to be permanent side effects.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL?
Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. A skin cooling device may be utilised to reduce any discomfort and a sterile dressing may be applied.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
This depends on several factors, including the density and colour of inks and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 3 to 8 treatments, where as professional tattoos vary considerably and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced minimum 6 weeks apart.
