Several factors come into play when considering removing a tattoo. Removal creams can fail to take off the whole tattoo, whilst other methods involving incisions or burning can cause pain or scarring.

The colours used in the tattoo, as well as its size and density, can all affect the suitability of a laser removal treatment, how long it will take, and how effective it will be. It is essential to discuss these elements with trained professionals, who can ensure your tattoo is removed in the safest and most effective way for you.

Laser Treatments for 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 can 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 is common after the procedure, but subsides quickly. We advise using a high-factor sun block while the skin is still sensitive after your treatment.

Tattoo Removal (Frequently Asked Questions)

How will I feel during treatment?

Apart from a mild pricking sensation, most people do not experience any high level of discomfort during the procedure. Local anaesthetic cream can be used and/or pain relief, such as paracetamol, can be taken to ease discomfort if needed.

Is it the right treatment for me?

Laser tattoo removal may not be suitable if you are a darker skin type; this is due to the potential of the area leaving a ‘ghosting’ effect. This is where the skin is lighter than the surrounding area. Your practitioner will assess suitability in your consultation.

How often will I need laser tattoo removal?

You will need treatment minimum every four weeks and a course of 6-10 treatments is often enough to remove the tattoo depending on the colour and depth of the tattoo ink.
