Laser Tattoo Removal Cover Ups London
Many of our clients come in with a change of minds about their tattoos for all sorts of reasons and want to either get rid of it completely or fade it for a cover-up. Even though the love of tattoos remains strong even if they do not like the tattoo design they chose many years ago, so having a cover-up rather than complete removal is preferable.
Depending on the size and depth of tattoo one thing that can do a lot to help is having the original tattoo faded with laser tattoo removal. If the aim is not to remove it completely but to fade the darkest or most undesired areas (e.g. bright colours) in order to get a cover-up then this can be a really cost-effective and sensible way to achieve exactly what is wanted with the new tattoo work of art.
Tattoo removal is defined as any method of removing a tattoo from the skin. There is a wide range of tattoo removal methods out there including dermabrasion (scrubbing off layers of the skin), TCA (which is an acid which removes layers of skin), excision (cutting the tattoo out) and of course laser (using energy to break down the ink particles.
Laser tattoo removal works by firing laser light into the tattoo which breaks the ink into tiny pieces, these little pieces are easy for the body to absorb. This allows the ink to be removed from the body itself. Laser tattoo removal avoids damaging the skin while removing the tattoo, unlike other tattoo removal methods.
Traditional lasers have been around for a while but the newer PicoSure & PicoWay lasers are a breakthrough in laser tattoo removal.
Some of the benefits of Picosure & PicoWay laser tattoo removal:
- Less painful treatments
- Effective on all colours of the tattoo, even greens, and blues
