LASER REMOVAL

What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe, and produces fantastic results. The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system. It usually takes several treatment sessions to ensure success, with minimum 5 week intervals between sessions.

How do I book an appointment?

You will need to come in to the studio and see Kai, our laser specialist. He will need to take a look at the tattoo to see if laser will be effective, various colours can affect how well the laser will remove the tattoo. If he believes laser removal is the best option he will be able to quote a price, take pictures and book you in for a free test patch. The test patch allows him to see how quickly the ink reacts to the laser, how your skin reacts and for you to see how the laser works. After you have your test patch appointment we will take a deposit and book you in for your first session.

Is it painful?

In a nutshell, yes but sessions are short!

Laser tattoo removal has been likened by some of our customers to the feeling of having a rubber band snapped against the skin. Sessions are short though, so the discomfort is bearable and worth it for the results.
Pre - Treatment Advice
  • Do not use self tan, tanning beds or sunbathe for at least 4 weeks prior to and between laser sessions.
  • You may shave or use depilatory creams before or between sessions but you MUST NOT wax, pluck or have threading.
  • Do not use bleaching creams for 24 - 48 hours before a laser session.
  • Do not wear deodorants, sun block, perfume, make up essential oils or skin lotions/creams when having a laser session.
  • Do not go swimming prior to a laser session.
  • Please refrain from exfoliating or undergoing microdermabrasion or peels on the area to be treated for 1 week prior to a laser session.
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing to your laser session.
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

After Care Advice
    • Leave the affected area alone for the first 24 hours after treatment.
    • After 24 hours use an antiseptic ointment up to 3 times a day for the first 7 days.
    • Cover the area with a sterile dressing for the first 3 days after treatment, or for longer shoulder the affected area be at risk of damage or contamination.
    • Use a cold compress/ice pack to relieve any discomfort or swelling.
    • Take paracetamol for any pain relief but do not take aspirin as it thins the blood and can inhibit good healing.
    • Do not pick, scratch or rub the affected area. This can leave it open to infection or cause scarring.
    • You may develop blisters. This is perfectly normal. Do not pick/burst them. They can last anything from 2 days to 2 weeks. The skin underneath is healing fine. Picking/bursting them will leave the area open to infection and can cause scarring.
    • Keep the area clean and dry, after washing pat dry, do not rub.
    • Avoid baths, swimming etc.
    • Always use at least a SPF 25 sun cream to protect your skin (just not 24 hours prior to a treatment).
