The procedure is not pain free, but it will depend of the type of Tattoo to be treated, i.e. Amateur or Professional, and the area we are treating. It can feel uncomfortable and the pain has been likened to a constant elastic band snapping against the skin.
The simple answer is yes!
Our State of the art Q switch Laser produces short sharp powerful pulses of light, these are absorbed by the ink from the Tattoo, the Ink is then broken down into smaller particles which are then naturally absorbed by the body. Black & Grey Tattoos can be removed very easily, however some colour Tattoos with Purple & Orange tend to be more stubborn.
Of course every Tattoo is different, and the amount of sessions required will depend on several factors, Age of Tattoo, Professional or Amateur Tattoo, depth and colour of Ink this will all be taken into consideration during your consultation. Generally Amateur Tattoos can take 1 – 5 sessions to remove and professional Tattoos can take 4 – 8 Sessions to remove.
If you wish to fade your Tattoo for a cover – up we recommend 2 – 4 sessions.
After consultation and confirmation of skin type you will undergo a patch test , this will take 15 mins.
Your actual treatment per session will depend on the size of the Tattoo and should be between 15 mins up to 45 mins for a large Tattoo.
