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 6 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 6 – 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 6-10 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 Removal FAQs

What is the most effective tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is considered the most effective method for removing tattoos. It targets the ink particles in the skin with high-intensity laser beams, causing them to break down into smaller fragments that the body's immune system can naturally eliminate. This process usually requires multiple sessions, depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo, but it is generally more successful than other methods, such as dermabrasion or chemical peels. However, it's important to remember that the complete removal of a tattoo may not always be possible, and there is always a risk of scarring or skin discolouration with any tattoo removal procedure. Our skilled technicians will work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan to give you the best possible results.

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 used for your tattoo. If you have a new tattoo, you must wait at least three months before booking a consultation and patch test.

At your laser tattoo consultation, your technician will be able to better indicate how many treatments you need and answer any other questions about laser tattoo removal.

Can a tattoo be completely removed?

The short answer is yes; a tattoo can be removed entirely with laser tattoo removal. However, the success of complete removal depends on several factors.

Firstly, the age and location of the tattoo can affect its removal. Older tattoos are typically easier to remove as they have had more time to fade and break down. Tattoos closer to the heart, such as on the chest or back, tend to heal faster and fade quicker than those on extremities like hands or feet.

Secondly, ink type and colour also play a crucial role in the effectiveness of laser tattoo removal. Black ink is usually the easiest colour to remove, while other colours, such as blue and green, may require more treatments.

Lastly, skin type also plays a significant role. People with lighter skin tones typically have better results than those with darker skin tones, as the laser targets pigment in the tattoo and can sometimes affect surrounding skin.

It's essential to consult a professional before undergoing laser tattoo removal to determine the best course of action for your specific tattoo and skin type. They can assess and discuss realistic expectations for removal and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.

In addition, it's important to follow aftercare instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and avoid complications such as scarring or infection.

Is it painful to remove a tattoo?

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 wrapped in clinic film on the tattoo for at least 30 minutes before your arrival for treatment.

Clients often describe tattoo removal treatments as ‘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 well on black, blue, green and purple inks.

The PicoWay laser is suitable for all skin types on black ink. We can use it for red and orange on light skin types.

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 tricky to remove as they are mixed with white ink, which reflects the laser light.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Using advanced laser technology for tattoo eradication, laser tattoo removal directs concentrated laser beams into the tattoo ink, fragmenting it into minuscule particles. These microscopic fragments are then effortlessly metabolised by the body, facilitating natural ink elimination without damaging the surrounding skin—distinctively superior to alternative tattoo removal methods.

While conventional laser systems have been in use for a considerable period, innovative platforms like PicoSure and PicoWay represent a monumental leap in laser tattoo removal techniques. These state-of-the-art lasers optimise ink disintegration efficiency, offering a remarkably effective and skin-safe solution for those seeking to erase tattoos.

How long does laser tattoo removal take?

Laser tattoo removal duration varies based on size, ink colour, and laser type. Typically, 6-12 sessions, each lasting minutes to an hour, are required. Advanced lasers like PicoSure and PicoWay may expedite the process. Consult a qualified practitioner at Pulse Light Clinic for a tailored assessment.

How long between laser tattoo removal sessions?

You should leave 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.

How much is laser tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal prices at Pulse Light Clinic vary based on tattoo size, ink colour, and laser type used for treatment. For PICO treatments, prices start at £63.00 per session for small tattoos measuring 1–3 cm, rising to £167.00 for large tattoos between 16–20 cm. On the other hand, with Q-switch, prices start at £34.00 per session for very small tattoos (1–3 cm) and can go up to £68.00 per session for large tattoos measuring 16–20 cm.

Will tattoo removal leave a scar?

At Pulse Light Clinic, advanced laser technologies like PicoSure minimise scarring risks. The expertise of qualified practitioners and proper aftercare further reduce potential complications. However, individual skin conditions and healing responses can influence outcomes. Consult Pulse Light Clinic for a personalised assessment.

What does skin look like after tattoo removal?

After a tattoo removal session, the treated area may appear red and swollen. This is normal and a sign that the laser effectively breaks down the ink particles in your skin. Within a few days, the redness should subside, and you may experience some crusting or scabbing as your skin heals. It's important to follow your practitioner's proper aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and minimise any potential scarring. In some cases, slight colour variations or texture changes in the treated area may occur, but these typically fade over time. If you have concerns about how your skin will look after tattoo removal, consult our qualified practitioners for personalised advice and treatment options.

Do tattoo removal creams work?

While many tattoo removal creams are on the market, they have yet to be proven effective in completely removing tattoos. Some may even cause skin irritation or scarring. It is always best to seek professional laser tattoo removal services for safe and effective results. At Pulse Light Clinic, our state-of-the-art technology and qualified practitioners ensure that your tattoo removal process is as gentle and effective as possible. Don't risk damaging your skin with unproven methods – trust the experts at Pulse Light Clinic for your tattoo removal needs.

Why isn’t my tattoo fading after laser?

It is not uncommon for tattoos to require multiple sessions before significant fading occurs. This can be due to various factors such as the type and colour of ink used, your skin type and the location of the tattoo on your body. It is important to note that each individual's response to laser treatment may vary, and it may take several sessions before noticeable results are seen. Our team will work closely with you to create a personalised treatment plan to achieve the best possible outcome for your tattoo removal needs.

Are older tattoos harder to remove?

The age of a tattoo can also play a role in the removal process. Older tattoos tend to have more faded ink and less defined lines, making them easier to remove compared to newer ones with vibrant colours and sharp outlines. However, this does not mean that newer tattoos cannot be removed successfully. With advancements in laser technology, even fresh tattoos can be effectively faded or removed completely over multiple sessions. It is essential to consult with a professional technician to determine the best course of action for your specific tattoo.

Why is black tattoo ink the easiest to remove?

Black tattoo ink is the easiest to remove because it absorbs all wavelengths of light, making it more responsive to laser treatment. The laser can effectively break down and disperse the ink particles, resulting in a quicker fading. Additionally, black ink is often used as the base colour for many tattoos, so it may be easier to target and treat during removal.
