TATOO REMOVAL Q&A'S
Am I suitable for Tattoo removal treatment?
We use the most advanced technologies suitable for treating most tattoo and skin types. The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is known for their outstanding ability to remove a variety of tattoo inks with little or no scarring. Professional and amateur tattoos, as well as traumatic tattoos, resulting from accidents, are treated successfully.
During your consultation, your clinician will assess your unwanted tattoo and discuss with you the results you are likely to expect.
Does treatment remove all tattoo colors?
The results you can expect from your tattoo removal treatments will depend on the type of ink used in your tattoo, as well as the shade of ink. The Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser is the workhorse of tattoo removal. It’s especially suited to the removal of dark blue and black inks. Darker colors generally respond better to tattoo removal treatment.
Your clinician will assess your suitability for treatment, along with the results you can expect, during your consultation.
How many sessions will I need?
This all depends on the size, age, quality and color of your unwanted tattoo. Some may need as little as six sessions to achieve a satisfying result, while others may require 12 or more to remove the tattoo. In some cases, the tattoo can not be completely removed (this is due to contributing factors at the time of implantation).
How long do I need to wait between sessions?
Sessions are generally spaced at six to eight week intervals, or more. This is because the tattoo removal process keeps working long after your session has finished. It takes time for your body to fully complete the natural process of clearing the treatment tattoo inks, which is why after each session the skin is allowed time to heal and renew before moving onto the next stage of treatment.
Does it hurt?
The sensation felt during tattoo removal treatment will vary from person to person. Factors to consider include the pain threshold of the individual being treated, as well as the size, quality, color and location of the tattoo (for example, removing a foot or neck tattoo will generally be more uncomfortable than a back tattoo).
Your clinician may engage various pain reduction methods such as ice packs or a skin cooling system to help minimize the discomfort experienced when undergoing treatment.
