Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal has never been easier or more effective

People choose to have tattoos removed for all sorts of reasons – according to the official statistics, as many as 1 in 5 tattooed people live to regret going under the needle. Of course this doesn’t mean that there’s been a sudden outbreak of rogue tattoo artists doing terrible work – rather, the huge increase in people being tattooed in the first place has naturally led to a similar upswing in removals.

Fortunately for those who want their ink to be nothing more than a memory, methods of removal have advanced significantly since dermabrasion (ouch!) and simply cutting tattoos out (triple ouch!) For the last 20 or so years, laser tattoo removal using a Q-switch laser has been the gold standard – this technique uses thermal energy to heat up the ink particles that make up your tattoo until they break apart. Q-switch was the preferred method due to relatively quick and painless results, and minimal scarring, compared to older techniques: but then PicoSure came along.

PicoSure tattoo removal works by hitting the ink particles with powerful pulses just a trillionth of a second long. These pulses pack such a massive punch that the ink, rather than breaking apart, simply shatters into particles so small they’re absorbed by the body much faster. Think of it like this: if particles treated with a laser break into boulders, those treated with PicoSure become grains of sand. This means that you’ll need less PicoSure tattoo removal sessions and get a cleaner, better result.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer PicoSure laser treatment to anyone who wishes to remove a tattoo. Of course, every tattoo is different so be sure to call in for a consultation – our trained team will take a look and let you know how many treatments you may need, and what result to expect.
