Laser Tattoo Removal

 

Effective treatment for all colour tattoo inks

With the overwhelming popularity of tattoos over the last ten years, the market for effective removal has exploded. Tattoos are created by injecting colored pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of whether a tattoo artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks or designs are relatively permanent.

Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors.

The mechanical Q-Switched effect works by vibrating and breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo. As the area heals, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.

FAQ's

 

How does the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser work?

The Harmony Q-Switched Nd:YAG is an adjustable laser that can target all colours and spectrums.

Once treatment is in progress the absorbed laser energy causes a photo-acoustic effect which breaks down the pigments and the colours in the tattoo to small particles, those are effectively removed from the body in a natural way.

How effective is laser tattoo removal?

The results of removing a permanent tattoo with laser treatment are effective, however in order to achieve good results it will take several sessions, this is in order to destroy all the ink that we can target until the tattoo has truly faded away. Your skin type, the colour used in your tattoo and the tattoo quality will all have an impact on the length of tattoo removal required by laser.

Can you remove all tattoo colours?

The Q-Switched Nd:YAG has different wavelengths, allowing us to target dark and light colours This means we can cover a broad spectrum of tattoo colours.

How long will it take to remove my tattoo?

Sessions will take between 5 and 20 minutes depending on the size of your tattoo. The number of sessions will vary. In our experience professional tattoos take around 8-12 sessions to break up while amateur tattoos may be removed in much less than that.

Will it hurt?

Tattoo removal is painful experience however as treatment progresses, the pain level drops dramatically, this is due to the fewer amounts of ink particles in the skin. No anaesthetic is generally required for laser tattoo removal. Generally speaking, tattoo removal feels no less or more painful from the actual tattooing process.

Will it scar?

Laser tattoo removal doesn’t cause any additional scarring.

Is it safe?

Our laser and skin therapists are all experts in their fields. All of our practitioners have years of experience and extensive training and qualifications which they are undertaking every year. Ace Aesthetics is committed to the highest safety and quality standards, and will reassure that as our consumers and patients enjoy a maximum and positive experience with us.

What side effects can I expect?

Immediately after treatment your skin will turn white. This will quickly fade, usually within 15 minutes after the treatment. A feeling of mild sunburn is common i.e. redness, slight swelling and tenderness but this will disappear within around 1-2 days.

Bleeding or blistering is possible although we will seek to reduce any such side effects through assessment at your complimentary consultation.

Some patients may also see loss of colour in the skin where the tattoo was. This is because the melanin in your skin also experiences a photo-acoustic effect that breaks up the natural pigmentation.

How much does it cost to remove a tattoo?

The cost to remove a permanent tattoo is subject to the size of the tattoo and number of sessions required. As a guideline we say that prices begin at £70 per session for very small tattoos. We will be able to give you a better indication of the cost at your free consultation.

Do you treat ‘traumatic tattoos’?

Traumatic tattoos are skin discolorations as a result of foreign objects, usually metal, becoming lodged in the skin then later removed. The object leaves a stain that we refer to as a traumatic tattoo.

We can remove traumatic tattoos with laser tattoo removal in an effective way.
