Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal is widely regarded as the most effective and safest way to remove unwanted tattoos. Unlike other tattoo removal treatments, laser tattoo removal is less likely to cause any permanent damage to the skin - it is also the most painless tattoo removal treatment available.
Laser tattoo removal works by emitting a pulse of light that is preferentially absorbed into certain colours of ink. The light enters the skin at a speed that is too fast to heat the tissues (billionths of a second), instead, it produces a ‘shock wave’ effect and breaks up the ink particles into smaller pieces, the body then recognises these particles as something that shouldn’t be there and attacks it. The particles are then removed naturally via the body’s own elimination system.
Several sessions are usually required to remove the tattoo completely, however you will notice a significant improvement after only one session. Once the tattoo has been successfully removed the results are permanent.
