Laser Tattoo Removal

Free Consultation

Tattoos are created by injecting coloured pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of who injects the pigment - a tattoo artist or an untrained person, the marks or designs are relatively permanent.

Laser surgery is considered one of the best methods of tattoo removal. The Q-switched Nd:YAG is the most frequently used laser today for the removal of unwanted tattoos. Pulses of light from the laser are directed on to the tattoo breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body’s macrophages remove the treated pigmented areas.

More than one treatment,and in some cases up to 12 treatments are necessary to remove all of the tattoo but most of the effect takes place in the initial treatments. The 1064-nm light emitted by the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser achieves the best results on dark tattoo inks namely black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos), blue and green.

The cost of removing your tattoo depends on the size and the colours involved so some tattoos will need more treatments than others. This can be discussed at your initial consultation, where if you decide to go ahead with treatment, a patch test will be performed to ensure that you don’t have any reaction to the treatment.

The length of time taken to remove the tattoo in each session will also vary depending on size and colours involved but could take up to 45 minutes.

There is a mild discomfort during treatment (often described as being snapped with a rubber band). Some patients experience redness of the skin and swelling after treatment but this is normally short term.
