What is Tattoo Removal?

Are you fed up with your tattoo? Or maybe you're wishing you hadn't made such a lasting mark on your body. You thought that was it there for life! So how easy is it to get a tattoo removed, and how do you go about it?

Though it may sound simple, several factors come into play when considering removing a tattoo.

Removal creams can fail to take off the whole tattoo, whilst other methods involving incisions or burning can cause pain or scarring.

Colours used in tattoos, also play its part, including size and density, can all affect the suitability of removal treatment,

You may have questions on how long it will take, and how effective it will be.  So It is essential to discuss these elements with trained professionals, who can advise you in the right direction to ensure the removal of your tattoo is the safest, most effective way for you.

What is an ND Yag Laser?

Tattoo removal is provided by a laser known as a ND Yag, This advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles.

The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system and lymphatic system It usually takes several treatment sessions to ensure success, with regular intervals between sessions.

The Procedure

The Laser Tattoo removal procedure can cause a tingling and maybe a stinging sensation, which can be eased by applying a local anaesthetic cream. And ice packs after every few shots.

Some people also experience a lightening or darkening of the affected skin, though in most cases this returns to normal after six months.

Redness in the area is common after the procedure, but subsides quickly.

The professionals performing the treatment will advise using a high-factor sun block while the skin is still sensitive, along with other tips on achieving the best results. It makes sense to take your tattoo to the experts!

After Care

After your treatment, your skin will appear slightly red as though you have been to the gym; although this will subside within an hour and will likely blister. Bleeding may be seen and should heal after 1 to 2 weeks.   

What does it feel like?

You may feel mild pricking sensation, most people do not experience any high level of discomfort during the procedure. Local anaesthetic cream can be used and/or pain relief, such as paracetamol, can be taken to ease discomfort if needed.

How many treatments will I need?

You will need treatment minimum every four weeks and a course of 4-10 treatments is often enough to remove the tattoo depending on the colour and depth of the tattoo ink.

 When can I expect to see results?

The impressive part is that you will benefit from both immediate and sustainable results. The treated area will seem to have been completely removed after the first session but it is normal for the tattoo to slightly re appear but faded
