Laser Tattoo Removal is a method to remove the appearance of tattoos on the skin.
The treatment is non-invasive and involves the use of a precise laser device. The laser penetrates the layers of skin to target ink particles in the tattoo. This process disrupts down the structure of the image and begins to break up the particles. With a number of treatment sessions, the tattoo will gradually fade. The body’s natural immune system will flush out dead ink particles. Over time, the tattoo will be barely noticeable.
Although the majority of clients use laser tattoo removal for torso, arm, and leg tattoos, the treatment is also effective for eyebrow tattoos. Our laser eyebrow tattoo removal service has become increasingly popular in recent years. This is due to the trend of eyebrow tattoos, particularly on women. The process works in much the same way: a laser passes through the skin to target ink particles. Clients may experience some minor pain. But the pain is tolerable and not excessive.
Laser tattoo removal is one of the few effective methods for tattoo removal. Although multiple treatment sessions are usually required, the procedure is cost-effective and non-invasive. Clients often see an improvement after 6 sessions, and the results continually improve as the body removes broken down ink particles. In terms of value and likelihood of results, laser tattoo removal is among the most popular tattoo removal treatments available.
The procedure first starts with a detailed consultation. A qualified practitioner will discuss the treatment and examine the tattoo to be removed. Any risks, health considerations, and potential problems will be addressed during the meeting. If the client wishes to book a treatment, a laser will be used to target areas of the tattoo. Multiple sessions may be required if the tattoo is especially large. Smaller tattoos require fewer sessions. But it depends on the colors used, among other factors. The practitioner will be able to advise how many sessions may be needed prior to treatment.
Besides using a laser, other methods exist for tattoo removal. Surgical removal is one method. But this procedure is highly invasive and expensive. It also requires a hospital stay and has a longer recovery time. Clients who take a surgical option often report high levels of pain and skin disfiguration. Satisfaction ratings are average at best. Dermabrasion is another method and involves the removal of skin layers using a rotating sanding-like device. The tattoo is ‘sanded’ off the skin. The aim is to promote the growth of new, more youthful skin. However, the process is expensive and painful. Results vary considerably from person to person. DIY tattoo removal kits also exist but are largely gimmicks and ineffective. Therefore, laser tattoo removal is the most affordable, non-invasive, and practical method for tattoo removal.
Most clients who undergo laser tattoo removal experience minor to mild discomfort. The treatment is not completely pain-free. However, it is far more tolerable than surgical or dermabrasion methods. Topical skin-numbing cream can be used to minimize pain. Removing larger tattoos is more painful than removing smaller ones.
Laser tattoo removal makes use of a laser device that penetrates the skin to target ink in the tattoo. The process disrupts particles in the ink, causing the tattoo to break up and appear less visible. The body then carries away excess particles via the immune system. After a period of treatment, the tattoo will gradually fade over time.
The time for the process to complete varies from person to person. The larger the tattoo, the longer the treatment. But most treatments last around 15 to 30 minutes.
Some people report minor pain. But it is not excessive. We are able to provide numbing cream for clients who require it.
There is usually minor soreness and sometimes swelling after treatment. This is a common side effect of laser tattoo removal. Redness can last up to two weeks and then begins to fade. Different body areas take longer to recover than others.
Most people encounter some side effects after laser tattoo removal. The most common is redness and soreness over the treatment area. But it is possible to see swelling, blisters, and in extremely rare cases, bleeding. However, any side effects soon disappear after a couple of weeks.
In most cases, 6 to 8 sessions are common for full tattoo removal. Larger tattoos may require additional treatment sessions. The time scale depends on the size of the tattoo, the client’s skin type and skin condition, and the colors used in the tattoo.

It is common to see results after a couple of sessions. But most people require at least 5 sessions to see noticeable changes. The treatment is a process and works long after the sessions have been completed. This is because the body breaks down the broken ink particles and transits these out of the body using the immune system. Final touch-ups are possible if the required results have not been achieved.
