What is Laser Tattoo Removal
Dermatologists consider lasers to be the most effective and reliable method of tattoo removal available as they are safe and provide consistently good results on multi-coloured tattoos.
Before your treatment, we request that you come in and have a chat to one of our practitioners to check your suitability, set a treatment plan and perform a patch test.
The laser is directed onto the tattoo where the high frequency light breaks down the ink pigment into smaller particles which are disposed of via your immune system.
Treatments last between 10 and 30 minutes and we recommend a course of 1 to 15 treatments at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks depending on the size, intricacies and colours of the tattoo. After each treatment, the tattoo will gradually fade away over the following weeks.
Read some of the Patient Stories and find out how happy our patients are with their results.
Immediately after treatment, the skin will go white, this is completely normal and will fade relatively quickly. Swelling and soreness may be experienced for 48 hours. Some tattoos may form a graze after treatment which should be left to heal naturally, picking or removing the scab will result in scarring.
Sometimes, small blisters may form at the treatment site, but this will heal in a short time. Following laser treatment, some skin discoloration may be noticed and the skin may not tan in the same way as non-treated skin. However, these should both stabilize over time.

You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). Your skin may be quite red for a few days after the treatment, you should consider this if you’re planning a trip or special day.
