What exactly is Laser Tattoo Removal and how does it work?
Remove your unwanted tattoos safely and effectively
Gone are the days when you either had to put up with a tattoo you didn’t like, or you had to have it covered up. With the advent of laser treatments in the beauty industry, you can now have unwanted tattoos laser removed.
We offer safe and regulated laser tattoo removal, carried out by trained professionals. Depending on the size, colour and density of your tattoo, we’ll be able to give you a realistic idea of how long it might take and what kind of results you can expect.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
During each session, the energy from the laser passes through your skin directly into the ink of the tattoo. This is totally harmless. The light from the laser breaks up the ink which your body then absorbs and eliminates through natural waste processes.
Does it hurt?
There’s no sugar coating it, yes it does. Everybody has a different pain threshold and some feel more pain than others. The pain has been described as like being constantly flicked with rubber bands or having lots and lots of continuous pin pricks. We’ll do our best to minimize your pain and our lasers have cool air blowing from them to help. And you can stop as many times and as frequently as you like.
Most tattoos require a few treatments to achieve the optimal result, and we advise you to have these about six to ten weeks apart. You’ll notice a difference after your first session and your tattoo will fade more and more with each session.
Before you have laser tattoo removal, we’ll talk through the whole process with you and answer any questions you have throughout. You might decide that you just want to fade your tattoo enough so that you’re able to cover it up with another one. We can help you achieve what you want to achieve.
If you’re considering laser tattoo removal, then arrange a chat with us. We’ll make you feel at ease and you could be on your way to being free of the tattoos you no longer want to be part of you.
Tattoos are meant to be permanent, so removing them is difficult. Getting them on the skin take 1 time, taking it out requires couple of treatments. The degree of remaining color variations or blemishes depends upon several factors, including size, location, the individual’s ability to heal, how the tattoo was applied and how long it has been in place. For example, a tattoo applied by a more experienced artist may be easier to remove since the pigment was evenly injected in the same level of the skin. New tattoos may also be more difficult to remove than old ones.During a tattoo removal procedure, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. The light is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue and chromophores unharmed.
The tattoo ink particles absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles.
In the days and weeks following a laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade. Over a series of treatments, more and more of the ink shatters, leaving the skin free of ink.
