Today there is an increasing demand for the removal of tattoos. On average, one person out of two wants to remove their tattoos after about ten years. This derives from the inevitable changes in fashion and styles or it is simply due to growing older.

  • Detailed consultations to explain the treatment
  • Accurate cost per session
  • Complete or partial removal as required
  • The latest laser equipment on the market
  • Fast, accurate and effective treatments
  • Localised anaesthetic cream to minimise discomfort
  • Before and after care and advice

Factors affecting how tattoos respond to lasers

There are several individual factors that affect how your tattoo responds to the laser treatment; these are:

Unique Immune System
Some people recover from colds faster than others. That's because everyone's immune system is different and this is a factor during tattoo removal. Your body will break down the pigment at its own individual rate.

Your Skin Tone
Lighter skin tones typically have a higher success rate in laser tattoo removal but many skin types are treatable. Some patient's tattoos are significantly reduced in appearance after the first session.

Types of Colours Used
Black, brown, dark green, dark blue and purple tattoos will usually respond relatively quickly to laser treatments. Some dark reds can respond well whereas pale reds and pinks, light green, light orange, yellow and light blue may require more visits or potentially a different type of laser.

Types of Ink Used
Inks used for tattoos are not regulated so there are many inks out there that affect the skin in different ways. While treatment results will vary, amateur ink generally responds at a faster rate than professional ink.

Depth of Tattoo
A tattoo that is covered by another has more ink and depth in the skin, therefore requiring additional laser treatments. Professional tattoos run deeper in the skin, requiring more treatments than amateur tattoos.
