Laser tattoo removal is a safe, effective procedure that only takes minutes to perform.
Tattoos naturally fade over time, as the body’s immune system recognises the ink as an invader and tries to remove ink particles. Laser tattoo removal simply speeds up this process by shattering ink particles into smaller pieces for the body to flush away.
How does it work?
Tattoos are applied by inserting a needle into varying depths of the deepest layer of skin, trapping ink there in the process.
When a tattoo removal laser hits the skin, it instantly heats and shatters the trapped ink. The shallow levels of ink are shattered first and the deepest levels last, which is why multiple treatments are required.
If a tattoo is particularly dark or bold, it will require more treatments to remove the ink.
It’s best to shave the area of skin that needs tattoo removal treatment before the process unfolds.
You’ll be given a pair of safety goggles before a handheld device is pressed on your skin to trigger the laser. Some people say this feels like an elastic band snapping lightly against your skin.
Each session will last between 10 and 30 minutes and the tattoo will be lighter after each treatment.
