Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is a relatively simple procedure that can produce some astonishing results.

During the treatment The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser we use here at DrBK can be adjusted to target different inks meaning whether you’ve got a black, red or multi-coloured tattoo we could help you to remove it a noninvasive and safe way.

This maximizes results and reduces discomfort and scarring. If you wish you never had that tattoo done the number of treatments needed will be assessed when you visit our clinic.

Before treatment, your tattoo will be analysed to see how effective treatment would be. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove as the pigment within them is easily broken down. Tattoos with red in them are usually more difficult and different wavelengths of light will need to be used. If the ink in the tattoo has been put into skin too deeply, treatment might be slightly more difficult and require more treatments.

What Happens During Treatment?

During laser tattoo removal, your skin will be cleansed and you’ll be given goggles to wear. The practitioner will cool the skin with our cryo cooling system to ensure minimum discomfort throughout the treatment. The laser will then be used over the surface of the tattoo. Treatment can vary depending on the size of the tattoo.

After Treatment

After treatment, patients are advised to take care of the skin, using a high factor SPF whilst the skin is still sensitive as well as a tissue repair cream. Patients will experience a mild pricking sensation during treatment, but we can use local anaesthetic creams to minimise discomfort. Over the counter pain medication will minimise any pain following treatment.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

The number of treatments that you need differs, depending on the colour of the tattoo and how large it is. Generally, you’ll need treatments every four to eight weeks. A course of six to ten treatments is usually enough to erase the tattoo, although you might need fewer treatments or more treatments.

How will I feel during treatment?

Apart from a 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.

Is it the right treatment for me?

Laser tattoo removal may not be suitable if you are a darker skin type; this is due to the potential of the area leaving a ‘ghosting’ effect. This is where the skin is lighter than the surrounding area. Your practitioner will assess suitability in your consultation.

How often will I need laser tattoo removal?

The number of treatments that you need differs, depending on the colour of the tattoo and how large it is.You will need treatment minimum every four weeks and a course of 6-12 treatments is often enough to remove the tattoo depending on the colour and depth of the tattoo ink.
