Laser Tattoo Removal
The Ultralase Q Switched Nd YAG Laser is specially designed for the purpose of tattoo removal. This laser allows very high powered laser light to be delivered to the skin over a fraction of a second. This minimises any damage to the skin and hence any chance of scarring is greatly reduced.
Treatments are quick and clients experience minimal discomfort. Anaesthetic creams are used to numb the skin prior to treatment.
Our clinic offers treatments with the Ultralase which can remove tattoos containing black, dark light brown and red pigments within 6-12 sessions, some people many just want to fade in order to go over the tattoo and in this instance only a few treatments may be needed. Aqua green and yellow may be more resistant and need some extra treatments.
How frequent are treatments?
Time is required between each treatment in order to allow the body's lymphatic system to remove the ink, a period of 6 weeks is recommended between treatments.
Can the area be re-tattooed?
Yes the area can be re-tattooed following laser removal. Whether you have had complete removal, partial removal or just lightening of the tattoo, the area will be able to be re-tattooed.
Will the tattoo completely disappear?
In many cases the tattoo will 100% disappear. Your therapist will discuss the predicted outcome with you on your initial consultation.
