Remove that name of regret this Valentine’s Day
02 Feb 2015
They say love changes who we are but sometimes it can also leave a physical mark. The impulse to get your partner's name tattooed on your body may seem like the ultimate gesture of commitment, but while your body art may be designed to last forever, your relationship sadly might not.
Extinguish the flame of your own romantic mistake this Valentine's Day with the help of sk:n clinics. sk:n offers safe and effective laser tattoo removal which is administered by qualified skin experts in the UK (four out of five of the UK's top dermatologists work for sk:n), so if your heart is still feeling a bit fragile, at least you know that your skin will be in safe hands.
As one of the most highly-regulated and trusted practitioners in the industry, sk:n can advise on the best way to tackle that tattoo without burning or scarring the skin. While they say that time heals all wounds, sk:n clinics know that advanced laser technology will definitely help speed up the process.
The effectiveness of the tattoo removal is dependent on several factors. sk:n clinics Nurse and Medical Standards Manager, Lisa Mason explains:
“The colours used in the tattoo, as well as your skin type and condition, how much time you've had the tattoo for and whether it's professional or amateur, as well as any medication you may be taking can all affect the suitability of removal treatment, how long it will take and how effective it will be.
“In terms of colours, black ink is most responsive to treatment, while white, yellow and fluorescent colours are toughest to remove, if at all. It is essential to discuss these elements with a qualified expert beforehand to ensure you remove your tattoo safely and effectively.”
The advanced technology available at sk:n clinics 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 the immune system. It usually takes several treatment sessions to see results, with regular intervals between sessions.
With over 25 years of laser experience, which is more than any other clinic group in the country, sk:n clinics are the responsible specialists in tattoo removal and see more than three times as many clients per day than any other provider.
