We offer tattoo laser removal with the Q switched laser machine. This treatment causes the tattoo pigment particles to shatter/fragment into smaller pieces. The smaller pieces are then removed by normal body filtration processes. The tattoo may darken before it begins to fade.
As there is no thermal component with this machine, there will be no damage to the hair follicles and no hair loss is involved.
Depending on your skin type, preferences and pigmentation of the tattoo, you may require several sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
The number of sessions between treatments depends on various parameters, including the area of the body treated, the size of the tattoo, the amount of existing scar tissue and the amount of ink.
We will begin by applying numbing cream to the treatment area. Your laser technician will go through your full health/medical history, evaluate the tattoo, explain the procedure and establish the price per treatment. We will then begin the procedure – it should take roughly 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo.
Immediately after treatment, frosting occurs however this will dissipate soon after. Pinpoint bleeding usually results within 24-72 hours. A crust will appear over the entire tattoo and clears up approximately 1-2 weeks post treatment.
There will be approximately 48 hours of down time involved after the procedure. You must wait 6 weeks between each session and then a further 8-10 weeks before getting microblading on top.
An aftercare cream and instructions will be provided to you.
