What our clients have said about sk:n..

My tattoo's looked great when I was younger! but now that I'm older the tattoo has faded and has lost its shape. I have fantastic results from my treatment at sk:n!

My friend recommended me to sk:n after he decided to have his tattoo removed. The results looked fantastic and after my consultation last week I can't wait to begin my course!

HOW does treatment for tattoo work?

For tattoo removal, a Q-Switched laser is used to send short pulses of high energy light which is absorbed by the ink of the tattoo. This shatters the ink into fragments which are then disposed of by the body's immune system.

Is it safe and will it hurt?

Using a laser on your skin can sound worrying and you wonder if its safe, however we can assured you that we have over 25 years experience in treating all sorts of skin concerns with laser therapy.  We also are registered with 'Treatments You Can Trust' and are in partnership with the NHS. The laser is also designed to target the ink specifically leaving the skin around it untouched.

Most laser treatments are explained as feeling similar to the flicking of an elastic band.  Any stinging sensation can be reduced significantly through an application of anaesthetic cream to the area. There may also be some redness and heat from the skin but this should only last a few hours.

What results can I expect? 

During a consultation we will talk over the treatment and a recommended course that would best achieve results, this is usually a course of 10-12 with 4-12 weeks for healing time between each session. This is an opportunity for you to talk about any concerns you have and we will try our best to accommodate.


Occasionally for reasons we currently are not sure of, a ghosting effect may be still visible at the end of your treatment. It could however be the result of the type of ink used not being susceptible to the laser or down to how deep the ink has penetrated into the layers of the skin. It is relatively common after treatment for the skin to appear lighter or darker but this should adjust itself back to normal within a few months.
