How does laser tattoo removal work?
Lasers work by directing energy toward ink in the skin with highly concentrated coloured light beams. These laser beams break up ink particles into tiny fragments which are later cleared up by the body’s scavenging cells.
The laser emits a pulse of light that is preferentially absorbed into certain colours of ink. The light enters the skin at a speed that is too fast to heat the tissues (billionths of a second), instead, it produces a ‘shock wave’ effect and breaks up the ink particles into smaller pieces, the body then recognises these particles as something that shouldn’t be there and attacks it. The particles are then removed naturally via the body’s own immune system.
This process of fragmenting the ink particles requires numerous sessions depending on the depth of the ink. The procedure is bloodless and no incisions are made. The laser selectively targets the pigment of the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin.
The treatment can start to work after just one session however you may not see this straight away as it takes 2-3 weeks for the ink to disperse naturally.
What will happen in my consultation and appointment?
Your treatment will start with a 20 minute free consultation. Here we will assess your skin and tattoo to determine which treatment will be best suited to you and your needs.
The laser will be used on a very small part of your tattoo. This is in order to make sure that there are no abnormal reactions from your skin to the laser, or to the broken down products of the ink. Our consultations are completely free and no-obligation.
At least a week after the patch test you can have your first full session. Your appointment will last between 10 to 15 minutes. Each session will be between 4 and 6 weeks apart to allow for healing of the area.
