FAQs

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on the depth and colour of the tattoo you have.  On average you will need a treatment 6-10 treatments.

Is laser tattoo removal suitable for me?

We can only confirm if this is the case after consultation and patch test. Almost all patients 18 years or over, can be treated with this type of laser.

Does tattoo removal hurt?

Most people find tattoo removal uncomfortable but tolerable and do not experience any high level of discomfort. Numbing cream can be used in conjunction with paracetamol. On the first treatment you will not be offered numbing cream and your level of discomfort can be used as a guide of application intensity, by the laser practitioner.

How tattoo removal works?

The laser injects the skin with intense light, which hits and breaks up the ink particles.  This causes the tattoo to fade with a minimal risk of scarring.

The laser used is harmless and will only target the pigmented skin.
