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.

Convenient to consume, pleasant taste

Have only tried this for less than a mth so will be interesting to see if any improvement to skin/hair/nails in 6 mths. Expensive for the quantity but v handy when you’re in a rush or wanting to take sachets to work. Tastes good too.

Dermalogica Age Smart MultiVitamin Power Firm

Love this product.

Smooth and reducing irritation

I have had bad skin while pregnant, with hormonal changes causing more pimples around chin area. This cleanser has a nice smooth feel to it, it's gentle (I have fairly sensitive skin) while still removing make up effectively and I think it's helping to reduce redness and irritation.

Great for my malasma

Helps keep my pigmentation and malasma at bay great product

Antioxidant HydraMist

I’ve used the HydraMist for many years and still love it.

Skin ceuticals retinol 1.0

Has made a big difference to my skin. Started off with 0.3 then 0.5 first. My skin looks and feels smooth and hydrated.

Rich and hydrating

This product feels great and is very nourishing. It’s my ‘go to’ now.

Aspect Dr Deep Clean Cleanser

The only cleanser I will use. Love the Aspect Dr range. High quality products with results.

Dermalogica Age Smart Super Rich Repair

Love this product, especially after a day in the sun fishing or camping.

Love this. Use it everyday either with or without foundation. Great coverage and it has a thick consistency. I feel it’s hydrating. The tube does leak a little unfortunately.

Gave me an allergic reaction that I’ve never experienced before. CSH has not responded to my email regarding this, I’m highly unimpressed with the lack of response.

Great product

Happy with this moisturiser & will definitely purchase again.

Calming and great for skin texture

I have been using this for a few months now and my skin is much clearer and has a much nicer texture than it used to. My skin is often sensitive and this is very soothing and calming.

Since I have been using it the change in my skin is noticeable. My skin looks luminous and healthier

Lovely and lasts ages

Second time I've bought this -great for rosacea

Second time purchasing

If anyone else suffers the affliction of being skincare obsessed, they will understand what it means to actually purchase the same product twice. Unheard of unless absolutely warranted.

Great cleanser!

Wanted to try something new that would thoroughly cleanse my skin. Aspect Dr Deep Clean has done just that! Very happy. Onto my second bottle.

Eyes 1.0 Retinol

I think to give correct review I need to finish the product, like every one knows the retinol work slow. I just started to get wrinkles and I have the feeling the wrinkles are not so strong anymore.

Great sunscreen/moisturiser!

This is a 50+ sunscreen and great moisturiser all in one!! I can give the morning routine moisturiser step a miss which is great so as to not have to layer up too much product. Lovely and non-greasy and a good base for make-up too. Only reason that am not giving a 5 star review is that this is quite an expensive product for a small tube!!

Beautiful product.
Luxurious and really feels like it is moisturising.
Love it.

Best Moisturiser
