Do you have a tattoo you regret?
With our experienced Level 4 Laser trained Specialist we can safely remove it.
Using our Lynton Q-Switch laser which uses the most advanced technology for tattoo removal, this is the only type of laser that is safe and effective for the removal of tattoos.
Single-colour tattoos usually respond best to laser tattoo removal whereas multi-coloured tattoos are much more difficult to eradicate completely.
Black, blue and dark colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but green, yellow and purple pigment can be more difficult.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Prior to any treatment our technician will provide a full consultation at least 48 hours before any treatment can commence, the consultation will cost £20 however this is redeemable against any laser treatment and refunded if found not suitable for treatment. The consultation identifies your expectations and provides a complete explanation of the treatment.
A medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment and if you wish to proceed consent is obtained and a patch test is performed to confirm there are no adverse skin reactions to the light. During treatment you will be asked to wear googles to protect your eyes from the laser. We use an Active Q-Switch Lasers to generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse.
The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments. The skin will be cleaned and the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. After treatment a cooling aid will be applied and the area cleaned before you leave.
Most clients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate the treatment well.
Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. Changes to skin texture and scarring is possible, though very uncommon and is more likely if grazes are not allowed to heal naturally. There may be loss of natural tanning ability in the area treated which usually improves with time.
This depends on a number of factors such as the density and colour of the tattoo and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and can take up to 15 treatments. Treatments are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
