WHAT IS LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?

 

 

A laser that is used for tattoo removal is a highly focused laser that rapidly delivers a beam of light to the skin for the purposes of removing unwanted tattoos. The laser is attracted by darker colours found in the ink of the tattoo in preference to the lighter colour of the skin. When the beam of the laser strikes the ink in a tattoo it shatters the ink into very fine particles. These particles are then no longer visible to the eye and become small enough to be absorbed and removed by the body’s own natural filtration (lymphatic) system.  

The Ultralase Q-Switched Nd YAG Laser is specially designed for the purpose of tattoo removal. This laser allows very high-powered laser light to be delivered to the skin over a fraction of a second. This minimises any damage that could be caused by overheating the surrounding skin and hence any chance of scarring is greatly reduced.  

Generally, treatments are quick and clients experience only minimal discomfort. The older the tattoo, the more treatments may be necessary and different colours and more intricate designs may also require additional treatments.  

 

WHY DO PEOPLE WANT TO REMOVE THEIR TATTOOS?

 

 

Most people get tattooed and bitterly regret the decision further on. What seemed like a good idea at the time can cause a major problem in later life. For some people having a tattoo can mean psychological distress. For others it can mean difficulty in securing employment or going for a promotion however, there are also many people now seeking to reduce or remove previous tattoos in order to make way for new and more modern designs. 

Our clinic offers treatments with the Ultralase Q Switched Nd YAG Laser which can remove tattoos containing black, dark and light blue, green and red pigments within 6-12 sessions based on the quality of tattoo. By matching the colour of the laser to the colour of the unwanted tattoo ink, multi-coloured professional tattoos as well as single colour amateur tattoos can be removed safely and effectively.

 

In General:

  • With modern laser technology the risk of scarring is very low, however, it is not zero and aftercare is important.
  • Black is the easiest colour to remove but some colours can be more resistant.
  • Anaesthetic creams can be used to numb the skin prior to laser treatment.
  • It is possible to remove or significantly lighten tattoos, but it is not always possible to totally remove a tattoo.

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

It is impossible to accurately predict the number of treatments necessary as it depends on the amount of ink used and how deep the ink was inserted. However as a guide most professional tattoos will require at least six to twelve treatments. Follow up treatments are conducted at no less than 4-6 week intervals. Further fading can occur for several months after each treatment.

 

CAN ALL TYPES OF TATTOOS BE TREATED?

It is possible to remove or significantly lighten most tattoos. Black, blue and red tattoos tend to respond well. Aqua, green and yellow tattoos may be more resistant and only partially fade. White tattoos reflect laser light and therefore do not respond to laser treatment.

 

WHAT ARE THE COSTS LIKELY TO BE?

Treatment costs will vary depending on the size, colour and time required to treat the tattoo. This can be discussed during your initial consultation.

 

HOW FREQUENT ARE THE TREATMENTS?

Time is required between each treatment to allow the body’s lymphatic (cleaning) system to remove the ink that has been treated by the laser. A minimum period of six (6) weeks between treatments is recommended.

 

CAN THE AREA BE RE-TATTOOED?

Yes, the area can be re-tattooed following laser removal. Whether you have had complete removal, partial removal or just lightening of the area will be able to be re-tattooed. The wish to replace an existing tattoo is a common reason for having laser tattoo removal.

 

HOW LONG AFTER BEING TATTOOED CAN REMOVAL COMMENCE?

Removal can commence as soon as the tattoo has completely healed. Although it may appear healed within a week or two the tattoo will still require further time to completely heal prior to removal commencing. A minimum period of six (6) weeks is advised. Your initial consultation can take place at any time during the six weeks.

 

WILL THE TATTOO COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR?

In many cases, there will be a 100% clearance of the tattoo. On average, 95% fading is considered a good result. The result depends upon the colour and type of ink used as well as the depth of penetration of the ink in the skin. Your therapist can discuss with you the likeliness of success during your initial consultation.

Great product

Have purchased many times because it is so beautiful on my skin.

It's nice

Feels clean just feel still need more moisture afterwards . Cheaper set to use for a month or so

Skinceuticals

Skin feels amazing after it. It's perfect for problematic skin & doesn't dry out the skin.

Best retinal!

I have used many retinol creams and serums and the Medik8 Crystal Retinal is by far the best. Retinal, which is in this serum, is more potent than retinol. The retinal in this serum is also time released so there is no irritation to my skin. Having said that, anyone new to retinol/retinal should start at the lower concentrations and work their way up gradually. It’s worth it - the results are amazing and speak for themselves!

Aspect Dr Active C Serum
Justine Fresher
My Vitamin C

Love this product, I use in conjunction with pigment plus and B, every morning. Active C is not sticky, gives you a lovely glow. Easy to use pump. Highly recommend!

Aspect Dr Lanazyme micro peel

I apply lightly the micro peel morning and evening. After leaving the peel on the skin for 15 mins and washing the face with water it leaves a beautiful smooth and moist skin surface. Nice base for moisturiser protection

Excellent Product

I have been using the Aspect DR products for around 12 months now and my skin is feeling so looking and feeling so much better. I ordered the starter kit as they are smaller in size and perfect to use when travelling.

Best quality antioxidant

The price tag is worth it. I use this every night. My skin glows, has a smoother texture and make up stays put all day long, after using this product for a few months. I’m on my second bottle and it lasts even longer if you have the CF products for day wear.

Poor service from CSH

The product was advertised on sale on social media. I did not receive the advertised discount . Someone from CSH said they’d look into it but never reverted to me .

Best facial you could buy

Filled with electrolytes these facials are the best on the market

Medik8 Gentle Cleanse

Removes all impurities from my skin so well. Great smell too. Leaves your skin refreshed, you won’t feel dry at all. Highly recommend

Medik8 crystal retinol 3

Absolutely love this product. Ready to move to the next stage.

Aspect Dr Reservatrol

Very good quality cream would recommend full of quality ingredients for your skin

The best product for pigmentation

I've been using Aspect Dr Complete Pigment Plus for a few years now, and it's been very effective in fading my melasma and preventing new pigment spots forming.

Ultra Facial Defense SPF50

Product is so nice and sits well on the skin, i have quite oily skin and it’s the only SPF that doesn’t make me oily.
Would really recommend the product.

Eye cream

Ive used many many eye creams over the years SKINCEUTICALS ..actually works !! Very pleased .😀

Love this product

I have been using this serum for over 6 months now and love it.

Good quality

Fast delivery and good price. I like this serum but it feels like it evaporates rates than soaks in, like others do. I love the Medik8 range for quality but will try a different brand for this product next time, to compare.

Amazing product fast delivery

Highly recommend this product, my skin has been very dry and this was a life saver !!

great cleanser

love this cleanser, always feels so clean and gentle and great non-strong fragrance

Repeat customer

This is the most deliciously weighted cream for my +50 yr old skin. I use this at night over the Skinceuticals Resveratrol BE, and for day - the lighter Emollience over HA Intensifier. All of them incredible products but the one I simply can’t be without is this Triple Lipid Restore. While it goes on heavy, it sinks perfectly into the skin. There’s no stickiness or heaviness, but you know it’s protecting and restoring the skin barrier. My skin feels soft, dewy and hydrated but the biggest compliment came the other day when my hubby told me my skin looks “bloody incredible”.

Game changer

Love this moisturiser! Leaves my skin soft and never breaks me out. I buy it in bulk now.
