What You Need to Know
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
While laser tattoo removal has gained a reputation for being painful, it’s only about as unpleasant as getting the tattoo in the first place. It’s completely bearable and is often compared to the sensation of getting splashed by the hot oil in the pan while frying an egg.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
Everyones's skin and ink is different, booking your free consultation and receiving a skin patch test is the only way to learn exactly how much your tattoo removal will cost. Our prices start from £35 per treatment.
How long will it take to remove my tattoo?
The most common question people have when seeking out laser tattoo removal is how long the entire process will take. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t so simple. There are a number of factors that affect how long it takes for your ink to completely fade away. Since laser treatments break up the ink and rely on the body to eliminate these particles by means of our waste, a healthy immune system will speed up the process. The most important factor when determining how long it will take is the tattoo itself. Black ink tends to break up into particles and fade faster than colored ink. The quality of the tattoo is also an important factor, so if you’re trying to get rid of an amateur tattoo you’re in luck. When a tattoo is poorly done, they tend to be easier to get rid of.
Will I experience any side effects?
Most people will experience redness, slight swelling, and a stinging sensation around the treated area, similar to a mild sunburn. This can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the level of your skin sensitivity. Occasionally, laser tattoo removal will result in blisters or scabbing, both of which should be left alone. As your tattoo begins to heal, some bruising might develop as well. You might not notice a difference in your unwanted ink after your first treatment, as the ink particles deep in the layers of your skin are the first to go.
