How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
Picosecond presents a new era in deep pigments shattering, offering optimal results for the removal of colorful tattoos and benign pigmented lesions with just few treatments.
Picosecond mode of operation is based on delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy into the skin tissue.
The light absorbed in the pigment is transformed into a photoacoustic wave that shatter the pigment into micro-size particles, which the body immune system can then dispose of easily.
Before starting tattoo removal treatment we offer a free consultation and patch test to assess your tattoo. We talk with you about your expectations and goals and draw up your treatment plan. The patch test checks if you are suitable for tattoo removal.
How effective is laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is the safest and most effective way to get rid of ink from tattoos. Other methods for removing tattoos include:
Dermabrasion involves using a medical grinding tool. It removes the outer layers of the skin in a controlled way before removing the layers with the ink in. It leaves an open wound which needs to heal and significant scarring can occur.
Chemical peels include Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels will like dermabrasion will result in an open wound and aftercare to avoid infection.
Surgical excision involves cutting the tattoo out, which most would consider as a last resort. Salabrasion and cryosurgery are also options.
Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ's
The PicoSure laser applies intense light to the ink pigment. This breaks up the ink into tiny particles which the body breaks down and removes over time, causing the tattoo to fade.
No method of tattoo removal is completely pain free. We do provide numbing cream to reduce the sensation of the laser. The feeling is similar to a warm, prickly sensation.
It depends on the size, area, colour and age of the tattoo. Anywhere between 4-10 treatments is considered enough.
We can happily fade the tattoo so it can be re-covered after a few sessions. One of our expert practitioners will be able to advise on timings during your free consultation.
How long is a Laser Tattoo Removal Session?
The duration of each treatment and session varies depending on the size of the tattoo. A small tattoo 1 x 1 inch needs no more then a 20 minute session. Larger tattoos are treated in sections over the course of months with many sessions lasting an hour or more.
