Laser Tattoo Removal: What you need to know.


Over 25% of British people have tattoos on their body. Tattoos are a popular form of self-expression, but sometimes people regret getting them for various reasons such as changes in taste, job requirements, or simply wanting a fresh start. Fortunately, Laser tattoo removal has become very popular and accessible over the years. Laser tattoo removal is the most effective method of eliminating unwanted ink on your body by breaking up the pigment with a high-intense light beam.

Whilst laser tattoo removal is safe and effective when carried out by an experienced technician, several important factors must be considered before undergoing the process.

Manage your expectations:

Laser tattoo removal is not magic. You will not come in for one session and leave tattooless. It is not a one-time process, and it requires multiple sessions for complete removal. The results will vary from client to client and the number of sessions needed will depend on the size, colour, and placement of the tattoo, as well as the client’s skin type, overall health and immune system. The laser works by breaking up the ink during the sessions, so your tattoo will be fading between sessions, which will change how the tattoo looked originally.

Some colours are harder to remove:

While we do treat coloured tattoos, it is important to note that some colours are more challenging to remove than others and may require more sessions. Orange, green, blue and pink colours can be particularly challenging. However, we have achieved some excellent results throughout the years for clients who have had coloured tattoos.

During the appointment:

Laser tattoo removal sessions typically take 10-40 minutes, and there is some discomfort involved. The level of discomfort depends on the placement of the tattoo and the client’s tolerance. However, our clinics use the newest generation of Cryotherapy systems, which cools the epidermis before, during and after the laser hits the skin, resulting in less pain and less swelling during your tattoo removal sessions.

Cost of Tattoo Removal:

The cost of tattoo removal varies depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo. We have a price list and we will be able to recommend sessions once we have completed a patch test.

Aftercare and Healing:

Proper aftercare and healing are crucial to achieving the best possible results for tattoo removal. After the treatment, the treated area should be kept clean and dry, and we strongly recommend following our aftercare guide. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and to protect the treated area from clothing or other irritants. The healing process can take several weeks.
