FAQs

Our superfast tattoo removal is performed by clinical staff using a medical grade Q-Switched ND Yag Laser.  This cutting edge technology is safe and effective for the removal of any size tattoo and targets all colours.

Vascular lesions, age spots, beauty spots and birthmarks can also be treated.


How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser is the best treatment for tattoo removal as it has the ability to remove the tattoo pigment without scarring. Our clinic uses the Q-Switch, Nd:YAG Bodilase System.

Q-switch lasers or ultra-short pulse lasers, use specific wavelengths of laser light, and are very, very fast. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the tattoo pigment which causes the ink particles to fragment into smaller pieces. Once the laser breaks up the ink particles, they are removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. The Q-Switched, Nd:YAG laser emits light in very short flashes which only targets the tattoo ink. It does not affect other areas of the skin.

You will feel a stinging sensation, and we recommend an anaesthetic cream can be applied 45 minutes prior to the treatment

There is no downtime for this procedure. On average professional tattoos require 2 to 6 treatments about 4 to 6 weeks apart for healing.

The number of treatments depends on the age of the tattoo, the amount and type of ink used as well as the depth of the ink in the skin.


Do all colours of ink disappear equally as well?

Dark (blue/black) inks and red inks fade the best. Oranges and purples usually respond well. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, although additional treatments can produce significant fading.


Post Tattoo Removal

The area may be red and swollen, as if mildly sunburned. There may be some bruising, and with deeper tattoos slight bleeding is not uncommon. Slight scabbing will occur during the healing process. An antibacterial ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area. You may not notice significant results until several treatments have been completed.

Most people are satisfied with the pigment removal achieved through laser treatment. It is important to remember, however, that your skin will never look as it did before you had a tattoo, even though the tattooed pigment has been removed.
