Laser tattoo removal or reduction using a Q-Switched Nd::YAG
Considered the Gold Standard for tattoo removal.
How does it work ?
The laser produces a very high power in quick pulses. The light energy produced passes through normally pigmented skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink which is shattered into tiny particles which are removed from the body by the lymphatic system. As the ink particles are removed the tattoo fades.
Is it Dangerous?
The laser is very safe to use when used by a trained operator who uses proper safety equipment ( goggles to protect the eyes).
The laser is non invasive and non Surgical and carries no risk of cancer or abnormal cell growth.
Does it hurt ?
There may be some discomfort, it is likened to having an elastic band pinged on your skin. This is usually tolerated by most people, however some areas are more sensitive especially around the ankles or the shoulder blade. Local anaesthetic can be purchased and administered by yourself an hour before treatment if required.
How long does a treatment take ?
Usually between 5-30 minutes, if your tattoo is large
we will treat areas of it in different sections. . Depending on the tattoo and the desired results ( removal or coverup) up to 12 or more sessions may be required.
Treatment sessions are a minimum of 6 weeks apart.
Are you suitable for treatment?
Certain medical conditions and medications would stop you having laser treatment.
You must not have had any sun exposure on the tattoo for 30 days before treatment.
No fake tan.
Please ask for a comprehensive list of conditions and medication.
What do I do next?
By law before laser tattoo removal you must have a full consultation and a patch test at least 48 hours before you can begin treatment
.This will take around 30 minutes and is charged at £25. If you decide to go ahead with removal this is deducted from the cost of your treatment. At the consultation you will be given a quote for the cost of your tattoo removal.
