Active Q-Switched Lasers that generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatment. The very short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.
An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours. Some tattoos will form a graze which must be left to heal naturally. Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over the next 4 to 8 weeks as the body disperses it.
Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or some blistering may form. Change to the skin texture and scarring is possible, though uncommon, and is more likely if any grazes or blistering is not left to heal naturally. There may be loss of the natural tanning ability in the area treated, which may improve with time.
Treatment time varies depending upon the size of the tattoo but generally is between 15-30 minutes.
The skin will be cleaned and then the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible ‘clicking’ noise is often heard as the ink particles shatter. After treatment, a cold air and a light dressing may be applied. During treatment protective eyewear will be provided.
Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. A skin cooling device may be utilized to reduce any discomfort.
This depends on several factors, including the density, colour of inks and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably, some can take up to 15 treatments but most will typically take 8 to 12 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a free consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to give informed consent and a test patch will be carried out.
An outstanding service from start to finish. Very happy about having my tattoo’s removed here, and at a very good price. Very friendly atmosphere, and very professional work. I’d recommend anyone who has an unwanted tattoo to come to Second Skin. Really looking forward to having the rest done here.
Amazing!! Have started a course of hair removal and asked for additional treatment on thread vein removal. So pleased with the results already.
