Tattoo Removal.

Laser Tattoo Removal can provide a safe and effective way to fade away tattoos of various size and colour. Not all lasers are the same and not just any laser can safely remove tattoos. We Use Award-Winning Equipment from the UK’s No.1 Laser/IPL Brand – Lynton. Here at The Laser Clinic, we invest heavily in the equipment we use to treat our clients, ensuring only the safest and most clinically effective treatments, each and every time. This ethos helped when deciding on our laser/IPL provider, Lynton – a specialist aesthetic technologies manufacturer made up of the largest team of UK-based doctors, scientists & aestheticians.

Lynton have an outstanding reputation for supplying medical-grade laser & IPL technologies to an extensive list of high-profile clients, including the NHS and numerous private health care facilities around the UK. Lynton devices are considered by many doctors, dermatologist and aestheticians as the most effective, safe and reliable option when treating a wide range of different aesthetic treatments.

The Laser Clinic has the most advanced active Q-Switch laser – the only type of laser that is clinically effective for Tattoo Removal. Q-Switched Lasers that generate a high-powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse are the most suitable lasers for Tattoo Removal treatments. The very short pulse of high-powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.

Each tattoo is different and the reason for removal is different: sometimes a reduction is required prior to a cover-up with a fresher, more modern tattoo. Whatever your reason for wanting Tattoo Removal treatment, we are able to offer our clinical expertise and our understanding. We offer a high level of service and professionalism and can offer our technical and medical expertise, whilst being sympathetic and responsive to your needs. We endeavour to explain everything to you, and we do not make outrageous claims or promises. We aim to explain the entire process so that you understand why and what we do to get you the best and safest results possible. We will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible before, during, and after the procedure.

Tattoos consist of multiple types, your treatment plan and results differ depending on your individual tattoo. Small black Indian ink tattoos are commonly the easiest to remove as they are not normally put too deep in the skin. The deeper the ink has been placed into the skin the more difficult it is for the laser to break down said ink. As well as the more layers of ink that have been applied into the skin the harder the laser has to work to break down the ink so more treatments will be needed than the average tattoo. For the average tattoo around 12 treatments are needed for a good fade, but please be aware that this is an average and we cannot guarantee this for every client or every tattoo.
Tattoo Removal at The Laser Clinic is spaced a minimum of every eight weeks to allow time for the treatment area to heal sufficiently and to allow the tattoo to fade as much as possible before the next treatment.

Pease be aware that we can treat most coloured inks apart from green ink. Any tattoos that include green ink will require different lasers for successful treatment. Single-colour tattoos usually respond best to Tattoo Removal. Multi-coloured, professional tattoos can more difficult to eradicate completely. Black, red and orange colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but yellow, blue and purple inks can be more difficult. With the growing popularity of Semi-Permanent Makeup there is also a growing popularity of Laser Tattoo Removal to fade unwanted Semi-Permanent Makeup ink. In some cases, we are happy to treat Semi-Permanent ink depending on the colour used. Please be aware that we will not treat any red/pink colours used in lip liner or areola as the ink will vaporise and become darker. We are happy for clients to book a Free Consultation to discuss treatment options and whether we would recommend treatment for them.

You don’t have to put up with that tattoo for a lifetime, at consultation we will assess your tattoo, and in the majority of cases, Laser Tattoo Removal will be recommended. For more information please contact us.
