Laser Tattoo Removal London

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 some time. The PicoSure & PicoWay lasers are a breakthrough in laser tattoo removal technology.

The benefits of PicoSure & PicoWay laser tattoo removal:

  • Less painful treatments
  • Less downtime, ( swelling, blistering and scabbing)
  • Faster recovery time after treatment
  • Less damage to the skin
  • Effective on all colours of the tattoo, even greens, and blues
  • Fewer treatments required; the whole tattoo can be removed in as little as 4 treatments.

Conventional tattoo removal relies heavily on a type of photo-thermal energy to target the pigment of the tattoo and surrounding skin. While it can successfully remove a tattoo, treatments need to be spaced from six weeks to two months apart, and it may take anything from 15-30 treatments to fully remove a tattoo. On top of this, it was not always effective on certain inks such as greens and blues.

Your whole tattoo can be erased in as little as 4-10 treatments

The newer PicoSure/PicoWay tattoo removal lasers use photo-mechanical principles as opposed to photo-thermal alone, combined with ultra-short pulses, called pico-seconds (one trillionth of a second) to shatter the ink into minute particles which your body then eliminates itself. This powerful process means the whole tattoo can be erased in as little as 4-10 treatments. Requiring less heat and less energy means that the surrounding tissue is left unharmed and the space between treatment can be much shorter too. it is also effective on all colours, including those greens and blues!

Laser Tattoo Remvoal FAQ's

How many laser treatments does it take to remove a tattoo?

It can take up to 8 months to two years to remove your tattoo as treatments are done with gaps of 8 weeks between appointments. The time frame varies for each client and their tattoo, as different factors such as ink type and colour, skin type, and age and location of the tattoo play a role.

We usually recommend 6-8 treatments for laser tattoo removal but this can depend on the ink colours and depth of ink that has been used for your tattoo. If you have a new tattoo, you must wait a minimum of 3 months before booking a consultation and patch test.

At your laser tattoo consultation, your technician will be able to give you a better indication of how many treatments you personally need and answer any other questions you may have about laser tattoo removal.

Is laser tattoo removal painful?

Everyone has a different pain threshold however we will patch test in the consultation and if you find it too uncomfortable we recommend using a numbing cream on the tattoo wrapped in clinic film for at least 30 minutes before your arrival for treatment.

Clients often describe PicoSure/ PicoWay tattoo removal treatments like ‘being pinged with an elastic band’, but this varies from person to person.

Is laser tattoo removal suitable for all skin types?

The PicoSure laser is only suitable for lighter skin types. The PicoSure works very well on black, blue, green and purple inks

The PicoWay laser is suitable for all skin types on black ink.
On very light skin types we can use the PicoWay for red, orange inks.

What is needed for Laser Tattoo Removal post-treatment care?

The area must be protected with an application of ointment and gauze for the first 48 hours, and then protected from sun exposure to prevent changes in pigmentation between treatments.

What is the hardest tattoo colour to remove?

This can vary from person to person depending on the skin type and depth of the ink.
The pastel colours can be tough to remove as they are mixed with white ink which reflects the laser light.
