If you have a tattoo that you no longer want on your body, we can help. Below are the things you need to know about laser tattoo removal if you’re considering it.

How does laser tattoo removal work? 

Laser tattoo removal works by breaking tattoo ink under the skin. Targeting the pigment in the ink, lasers effectively remove the unwanted tattoo. Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we use Q-switched Nd: YAG laser to remove both professional and amateur tattoos, ensuring you get the best results. 

This type of laser is the best for tattoo removal, as it works well on different coloured pigments and is very effective in removing tattoos. It’s also important to note that some tattoo pigments fade more easily than others, so speeding on the colour of your tattoo it may take more sessions to disappear. 

What are the benefits of laser tattoo removal?

There are several benefits to laser tattoo removal that you should be aware of if you’re considering having this treatment. They are:

Minimised damage to surrounding tissue: Laser technology operates on the principle of selective photothermolysis, targeting the tattoo pigment while minimising damage to surrounding skin. This helps reduce scarring and promotes faster healing.

Minimal downtime: Laser tattoo removal typically involves minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your regular day to day activities shortly after the procedure. The recovery process is generally faster compared to other tattoo removal methods.

Improved self-esteem and confidence: Unwanted tattoos may be a source of embarrassment or dissatisfaction for some people. Laser tattoo removal can lead to improved self-esteem and confidence, as it helps to effectively remove the unwanted tattoo from your skin.
