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.

In order for us to give you a firm price we would prefer to see you in person. We would be able to have a good look at your tattoo and see what work is required and what your options could be. There would be no charge for this service and you are welcome to pop in at any time.

Yes, we can remove most colours, although some colours are more resilient and harder to remove than others. Darker colours tend to be the easiest to remove.

No. There are several different factors involved in determining how many treatments your particular tattoo will require, but between 1 and 5 treatments is average.

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.

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. It is possible as long as the area is fully healed to have monthly sessions.

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.

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.

We do not treat these types of tattoos. Some cosmetic inks have metallic bases. When the laser comes in contact with these inks, it can turn black. Be cautious of anyone who says they can effectively remove cosmetic ink. Once this darkening occurs, it cannot be removed by any laser. You may end up with permanent black lip liner. Tattooed eyeliner cannot be removed due to the danger of the laser near the eye, and the ink in permanent eyebrows could migrate up the forehead causing a shadow effect.

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

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.

Pain is your personal perception and everyone experiences it differently. There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved in this procedure. Most people would say it feels like an elastic band snapping against the skin, but it’s a very quick procedure, much faster than tattooing. You can purchase Emla Cream from Boots Pharamacy prior to your treatment, put a generous amount of Emla cream over your tattoo and cover with cling film 1 hour before your treatment and this will numb the area.
