HOW DOES IT WORK?

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER LASER REMOVAL?

A tattoo is permanent. Pigment is typically inserted into the dermal (second) layer of skin through punctures in the skin’s top layer, making it very difficult to remove. However, there are now several methods of tattoo removal and laser tattoo removal has become the most sought after treatment because it is low risk and does not require an incision, unlike other methods.

Laser tattoo removal is generally an outpatient procedure that requires a topical numbing cream. Using a handheld device, we apply powerful pulses of energy to the unwanted tattoo. The resulting heat penetrates through the top layer of skin, shattering the tattoo ink into tiny fragments. The body’s immune system then gradually absorbs the fragmented pigments, meaning that over several sessions the tattoo’s appearance diminishes. More than one treatment may be needed to achieve the best results.

IS LASER TATTOO REMOVAL SAFE?

RISK VS REWARD.

Laser tattoo removal is considered the safest and most effective treatment option around today. Risks and side effects associated with laser treatments are often less severe than other traditional methods such as dermabrasion or excision.

When performed by a qualified, experienced professional ( click here and here to view our qualifications), risks associated with laser tattoo removal are rare. All potential risks will be discussed with you in detail during the consultation process. The most significant risk is infection, but this risk can usually be prevented if you follow post-treatment instructions. Additionally, you may experience temporary or permanent pigmentary changes: your skin may become darker or lighter.

Following treatment, you may also experience some temporary swelling, bruising or superficial flaking. Your skin may appear red or sunburned for a few weeks, meaning you should avoid excessive sun exposure for several weeks.
