laser tattoo removal
Have you fallen out of love with a tattoo? Do you have a poorly done tattoo or one that you regret that you thought was a good idea at the time?
We are here to help!
We now carry out laser tattoo removal by a trained technician in the studio.
THE PROCESS & FAQ's
Removing a tattoo is a gradual process as it takes multiple sessions to fully remove a tattoo.
The laser breaks down the pigment in the tattoo ink into tiny fragments which are then carried away by the body's immune system and safely passed out of the body - for this reason sessions can only be carried out every 4-6 weeks.
DOES IT HURT?
Everybody's pain threshold is different, some find it OK some find it uncomfortable.
However unlike getting tattooed you CAN use a numbing cream on the area treated if you wish, otherwise people say it feels like an elastic band flicking against the skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Laser tattoo removal is a fairly quick process and a large tattoo will take no longer than 15 minutes.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
You can never tell exactly how many sessions a tattoo will take to fully remove as it varies on things such as the ink used in the tattoo, the individuals immune system and ability to heal and also the colours in the tattoo.
However the dark colours such as black are the easiest to remove and get the best results.
As a rule of thumb it could be anything up to 15 sessions to FULLY remove a tattoo.
CAN YOU GET A NEW TATTOO IN AN AREA THAT HAS BEEN LASERED?
Absolutely yes! In fact the majority of people that come to me for laser treatments only want the tattoo fading enough for a new tattoo to go over the top without the old tattoo peaking through.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
A consultation and test patch will need to be carried out on anyone who has not had laser treatment before at a price of £15.
A price per session will be given within the consultation on the tattoo in question.
Minimum charge is as little as £25.
You can pay as you go or there are options to block book either 4 sessions which will give you 10% off each session or 6 sessions which will give 15% off each session - you will be required to pay in full and any appointment cancelled within 48 hours will be lost.
