Laser Tattoo Removal
Will the treatment be painful?
Clients describe the process as similar to being flicked constantly with a rubber band but certainly less painful than when you getting the tattoo. We can provide topical anaesthetic to apply before the treatment to minimise your discomfort.
How many treatments are needed?
Its hard to tell the number of treatments, because it depends on your skin type, tattoo colours, the amount of ink used and ink depth. Usually will require at least 6 to 8 treatments to achive the best results.
How long do I need wait between 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.
Where does the ink go after laser tattoo removal?
After the laser-removal process, which Doft notes, typically works best on darker, older tattoos, the ink is recognized as waste within the lymphatic system and discarded via either sweat, urine, or fecal matter
How frequent are the treatments?
Time is required between each treatment in order to allow the body’s lymphatic (cleaning) system to remove the ink that has been treated by the laser. A minimum period of six weeks between treatments is recommended.
Can the area be re-tattooed?
Whether you have had complete removal, partial removal or just lightening of the area, you can be re-tattooed following your course of treatments. Replacing an existing unwanted tattoo is a common reason for having laser tattoo removal.
Will the tattoo completely disappear?
Approximately 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 clinician can discuss with you the likeliness of success during your initial consultation.
