The Q-Switched tattoo removal laser generates a high-powered beam of laser light which targets the ink of the tattoo. The light is then absorbed and breaks the ink particles into small pieces, enabling your immune system to disperse of the ink.
The laser will move over the tattoo and deliver quick pulses of light. You will hear a clicking, crackling noise – don’t worry, this is just the ink particles breaking down.
The tattoo which we have treated will become white for a short period of time, but this will fade. Following tattoo removal treatment, you may experience swelling, redness and tenderness, but this will subside after 48 hours. In some cases, tattoos will form a graze, which should be left to heal naturally.
You will require a course of tattoo removal treatments, and the appearance of the tattoo will fade with each treatment. Treatment is inadvisable with sun exposure, pregnancy, and certain medications. A full consultation and patch test is required prior to treatment.
A laser is shone onto the tattoo which causes the ink particles to break up and be washed away by your immune system.
Yellows and whites can be quite stubborn and it is not always possible to remove these. Occasionally, some very bright colours cannot be removed but this is rare.
No one can guarantee the tattoo will be 100% gone but treatment will remove at least 95% of the tattoo.
It does sting a little bit but it is very tolerable. It is no worse than being tattooed.
This will depend on the tattoo and your skin. Before we begin treatment we will do a thorough consultation where we will assess how many treatments and the likely outcome. Book your consultation for tattoo removal today.
