ADVERTORIALLaser tattoo removal produces good results

2016-10-19 06:00

WHY lasers? There are many methods of tattoo removal, from magic creams to surgical excision, but none compared to the results you get from a laser. Where other methods can be brutal, unproven and in many cases just don’t work, laser removal provides the most consistently effective results

How does it work? Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second passing through the outer layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly. The laser disrupts the ink allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally.

How does it feel? Laser tattoo removal has been described as feeling like a rubber-band snapping against the skin or the same feeling as getting a tattoo, but takes far less time. Most sessions are over in less than five minutes.

Before treatment we recommend numbing the area with a topical anaesthetic cream.

How many treatments are needed? The process is not immediate. After the first treatment the ink that was exposed to the laser will break down and be removed by your body’s immune system over 30 days.

Once the initial process is complete you can come in for your next visit, repeating the process until the tattoo is gone

There are individual factors that affect how your tattoo responds to the laser, including your unique immune system, your skin tone, types of colours used, type of ink used and the depth of a tattoo.

The treatment is suitable for black, white and Indian skin tone. It is very dangerous to the human body, high radiation and the necessary high voltage for the pulse ND: YAG Q-switch, therefore only qualified personnel are allowed to do the treatment. It is in your best interest to insist that you ask to see the therapist’s certificate looking for credentials specifically for the Department of Health Radiation Control logos. This laser also eliminates age spots, birthmark, pigment and permanent makeup.
