Say bye to that unwanted tattoo

16th November 2012

'I heart Steve', an anchor, or a whole sleeve - here at sk:n, we've seen them all. Tattoos are often considered beautiful works of art and are loved forever by the individual who acts as the canvas for them. But, this isn't always the case, and it's good to know that if you and your tattoo have fallen out of love; there is an option.

The team at sk:n are completely impartial to tattoos and they are only there for clients who are interested in having one removed. Often, tattoos can be both beautiful and creative, but others, they are unsightly and a reminder of a negative experience. This is where sk:n come in. As the UK's number one skincare clinic, sk:n has some of the best treatments around; one of which is laser tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe, and produces fantastic results. The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system. It usually takes several treatment sessions to ensure success, with regular intervals between sessions.

The procedure is often said to cause a stinging sensation, which can be eased by applying a local anaesthetic cream. Some people also experience a lightening or darkening of the affected skin, though in most cases this returns to normal after six months. Redness in the area can be common after the procedure, but also subsides relatively quickly.

As with all laser treatments, the professionals performing the laser tattoo removal treatment will advise to use a high-factor sun block while the skin is still sensitive, along with other tips on achieving the best results.

Our laser tattoo removal treatment is extremely effective and over a course of 8 or 12 sessions, your tattoo is likely to need little to no further treatment and your skin will likely be left without a scar or trace of its existence!
