Laser Tattoo Removal for Dark Skin London
Those with darker skin types may be wondering whether Laser Tattoo Removal will work the same. Some may suggest that it is harder to remove and a risk of complications. But, as a clinic that weekly treats over 300 clients of all skin types, laser tattoo removal for darker skin tones works equally well as lighter skin tones on Black ink.
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). Mostly leading to scarring and pigmentation and uneven removal.
Traditional lasers have been around for a while but the new PicoWay lasers are a breakthrough in laser tattoo removal. Using Picosecond technology with a deeper wavelength speeds up removal and has a far lower chance of side effects than other methods. We also use the RevLite which uses longer laser wavelengths which can be used alongside our Pico machines to avoid severe side effects for darker skin types and treat certain shading much better.
Benefits of PicoWay laser tattoo removal:
- Less painful treatments.
- Effective on Black ink.
- Fewer treatments required; the whole tattoo can be removed in as little as 4 treatments.
- Less chance of side effects.
