HOW does treatment for tattoo work?

sk:n uses a specialist laser to break down the particles of ink in the skin, which disperses them and allows the body to target the fragments for disposal by the immune system. The body then removes the fragments resulting in a gradual fading of your tattoo.

Is it safe and will it hurt?

Most laser treatments feel like an elastic band being flicked at the skin followed by a stinging sensation which can be softened by the application of an anaesthetic cream shortly before treatment. Some people find that they experience redness and feeling of heat radiating from the area, but this should subside within a few hours. Our specialist lasers are designed to target the pigmentation of the ink in the skin ensuring no damage is done to the surrounding skin.

What results can I expect?

Optimum results are achieved through a course average of 10 to 12 treatments, with 4-12 weeks healing time between each session. When you book a consultation to see us for tattoo removal we will advise you on how many treatments we feel you will need. Our aim is to remove the tattoo in its entirety but occasionally for reasons we are unsure of, perhaps due to variances in inks used or the penetration of the ink into deeper skin layers, sometimes a ghosting effect is left behind.


Some clients will experience a darkening or lightening to the skin after treatment has finished but this is relatively brief and should disappear within a few months. If however darkening does remain, sk:n does offer various treatments to help blend the tone to match the surrounding skin.

Where can I have treatment?

Depending on where the tattoo is on your body will depend on who you will see for treatment. If the tattoo is located on the face, head or neck area you will be consulted and treated by a doctor as this is a sensitive area which must be treated with care. Most other areas of the body are treated by a medically trained sk:n Practitioner meaning that tattoo removal can be carried out anywhere on the body.
