How does it work?

 

Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second, passing harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly. The laser disrupts the ink, allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally.

 

Can a tattoo with lots of colours be removed?

 

Usually, but not always. We use state-of-the-art lasers and the newest techniques. Some colours may require more treatments, but they can usually be removed. Some colours cannot be removed. Certain shades of purples, pinks, yellow, and white are examples of colours that may not be removable.

 

Will it be gone after my first treatment?

 

No. There are several different factors involved in determining how many treatments your particular tattoo will require, but between 5 and 12 treatments is average.

 

Why has nothing changed after a treatment?

 

This is completely normal. Some people may even see their tattoo get darker with their first treatment. Everyone responds at a different rate. The treatment is only effective with multiple visits...just be patient and follow the medical staff's advice and you will get the best results possible.

 

Can I come back sooner than six weeks?

 

We are aware that some advice is given that you are suitable for treatment again once the skin has healed from the previous treatment.

 

Skin healing is NOT the reason for the spacing of your treatments. The laser does not expel the ink; it breaks it up so your body's immune system can take it away.

 

If you treat your tattoo too frequently, the laser is simply targeting the ink your body hasn't had the chance to remove, and you end up pay more for the same result.

Can I have just part of my tattoo removed?

 

Yes. We can take the face off your pin-up girl to have it redone. We can take just the name off the banner across your heart. Our lasers are very accurate.

 

Can I buy just one treatment at a time?

 

Yes, you can buy just one treatment at a time. However, we offer discounts if you purchase multiple treatments at the same time.

 

Will I have a scar?

 

Most patients will not scar, however, scarring is a possibility in any medical procedure involving the skin. If you are predisposed to Keloids, or you scar easily, your chances are higher. Compliance with our aftercare instructions will greatly reduce your chances of scarring.

 

Does it hurt?

 

Pain is your personal perception and everyone experiences it differently. There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved in this procedure. Prior to your treatment, you may numb  can numb the area with a topical anaesthetic cream mixture, which is available upon request from us.

 

Are there any limitations after treatment?

 

You may resume all activities soon after treatment, provided you ensure the area is not rubbed or scratched. If you are in the sun, you should cover the treated area to prevent sunburn until the skin has healed.

 

What should I do before my treatment?

 

Avoid Aspirin or ibuprofen products.
