Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ’s
It feels like an elastic band been twanged against the skin! So whilst not painless, itâs quicker than getting a new tattoo, and the discomfort is probably no more than you experienced when you got the tattoo initially. Discomfort can be reduced by applying anaesthetic cream beforehand and icepacks during treatment.
Yes! During laser tattoo removal the laser operates in short, fraction of a second bursts, targeted only at your tattoo. It does not affect surrounding skin.
No! Laser tattoo removal should not scar you. Instead of forcing ink out through the skin, it breaks it down soh your immune system can attack and pull it out through your lymphatic system.
No! We use only the latest most advanced lasers that are much gentler and pass freely through skin without burning. We do not use older CO2 type lasers that can burn skin.
Several treatments may be needed before the tattoo fades enough to no longer be seen. The number of sessions is dependent on the tattoo complexity, ink type, colours used, tattoo depth, tattoo age and skin colour of the client.5-15 laser tattoo removal sessions may be required before the tattoo fades entirely. Session times vary dependent upon the size and complexity of the tattoo and patient sensitivity.
Laser Treatments insist on an initial consultation with questions on your general health and any medication you take. If you are fit and healthy, answer questions honestly and follow recommended aftercare you should be fine.
Most colours can be removed with laser tattoo removal. Black, dark blue and red tattoos respond really well to laser removal. More difficult tattoo colours to remove are white, yellow, purple and pink, but are easier to cover up. Green is probably the most difficult tattoo colour to remove. Laser Treatments uses an advanced laser that is good for most colours giving you the best results possible.
Sometimes yes, but not everything can be covered well. Some tattoos require a little help from the laser in preparation for cover-up, with a far superior result. A cover-up tattoo should always look good in its own right. Beware of promises to âcover it with blackâ. You may end up with a worse tattoo than the original. Even the best cover-ups are rarely 100% effective. If the original tattoo was very dark and strong it may seep back through in time.
If you only want to fade a tattoo ready for a new tattoo cover-up, you may need just 2-3 sessions over say 2-3 months, depending on what you want to cover it with. A new light-colored tattoo will need more of the old tattoo removing than if you plan a new dark tattoo to cover the old one.
Laser Treatments offers an affordable laser tattoo removal and reduction service with prices based on the size of tattoo to be removed. As a guide single session for a small tattoo would cost around £50, regardless of the colour or density of ink involved. Several sessions are likely to be required and discounts are available if you book a course of treatments. Laser treatment can also be used to fade a tattoo before a tattoo coverup.
Whilst other methods of tattoo removal exist, they are either not very effective e.g. tattoo fading creams, or can leave scarring e.g. dermabrasion, cryosurgery or excision.
Dermabrasion, as its name suggests, is an invasive procedure. It literally abraids the skin â a bit like using a Black & Decker Sander to remove your tattoo! With dermabrasion tattoo removal, several layers of skin are also removed, deep enough to remove the tattoo. This includes the dermis, which does not renew itself, so making scarring more likely. So beware, tattoo dermabrasion can damage the dermis!
Effective tattoo removal creams contain an active ingredient (chemical / acid) strong enough to break down the ink. The problem is the active ingredient can damage the skin. So beware, scarring and burns from the use of tattoo removal creams are as common as the online forum discussions on scarring from people who have used such creams and who are now seeking help with scar removal.
*“I needed to remove my tattoos for a modeling contract. The clinician was brilliant, gentle and knew exactly that she was doing. The clinic has qualifications on show & this made me feel very safe in their hands.”*
