Do you want to replace an unwanted tattoo, remove one that no longer holds the same meaning for you or a new tattoo that you’re disappointed with, laser tattoo removal is a safe and permanent treatment.

We can also remove microblading, eyebrow tattoos and permanent make-up. It’s non-invasive, and normally requires a few sessions to achieve complete removal.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
As a tattoo laser is moved over your skin, it emits powerful pulses of light energy. This goes into your skin in a harmless way, and impacts the ink particles, causing them to break into smaller pieces as a result of the heat generated by the laser. When the particles become small enough, they absorb back into the body and removed harmlessly by the immune system. Different ink colours need different strengths of light in order to break apart, so your technician will use a patch test to find out what intensity to use during your laser removal session. In order to completely remove a tattoo, you will need to come back for further sessions. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the size and colour of your tattoo. Eyebrow tattoo removal is normally quicker.
About the Pico Laser machine
Pico-second technology is the latest innovation in tattoo removal. They emit super-fast energy pulses, lasting a pico-second, which is much shorter than a nano-second. Our pico laser machine results in an almost pain-free experience.
It shatters the ink pigment particles into smaller pieces than older technology, making it easier for the body to absorb them. This gives you a faster treatment where results can be seen sooner.
It’s important to look after the treated area after your laser treatment, particularly if you experience temporary redness or minor swelling.
• Use an ice pack to reduce swelling
• Do not scratch, rub or pick at the skin while it is recovering from the treatment
• Avoid heavy exercise that makes you sweat – this can cause more irritation.
• Stay out of the sun
• Gently clean the area every day, with running water, and pat dry. Do not scrub the skin.
• Rest and stay hydrated, to boost your immune system

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Are Tattoos Removed?
Tattoos are comprised of an abundance of ink particles that are deposited into your skin’s deepest layer, the dermis. Once as ink particles are embedded, your immune system immediately sends bacteria eating cells to remove the alien substance from your skin. Due to their large size in proportion to the cells, the ink particles remain etched in your skin but gradually fade as your immune system continually eats away at the particles over time.
Laser tattoo removal acts as an aid to your immune system by speeding up the natural fading process. During a laser session, our Astanza Duality sends ultra-quick pulses of light energy onto the undesired tattoo. The ink particles absorb the light energy, heat up, and shatter into tiny nanoparticle fragments that your immune system can more easily flush out.
Multiple treatments are required to treat the various layers of ink particles that make up a tattoo. The laser targets the shallowest layer of ink and works its way down with each session until the deepest layer is shattered. Over the weeks following each treatment, your immune system will continue to send bacteria eating cells to clear the shattered ink fragments until all the ink is removed to your desired goal.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Occasionally, a whitening of the skin may occur. However, normal skin tone should return within 6 -12 months following your last treatment session. Since the ink used in tattooing can vary from tattoo to tattoo, results can heavily vary dependant on how experienced or inexperienced the tattooist was, how deep the tattoo ink is and if any scarring occurred on your original tattoo, this is normally due to the tattooist going too deep with the needling. If this is the case, once your tattoo is removed – you could be left with some raised scaring.
What Will My Skin Look Like After Treatment?
Right after your treatment, your skin will have a white discoloration/flake, and the area around the tattoo will become reddish and appear swollen. This is normal and will disappear slowly over time. Results take about 5 weeks after each treatment. Immediately after treatment, antibacterial ointment and gauze will be applied to the treated area to minimize infection.
What Is The Treatment Like?
Some patients say they feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin. Many treatments do not require numbing. However, some patients feel more comfortable with a local numbing agent, such as a topical numbing cream.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This varies depending on factors such as the location, depth, colour and size of your unwanted tattoo. We recommend spacing out your treatments by 4-8 weeks to give your body the best chance of removing the most pigment.
How Long Does It Take?
An individual laser tattoo removal appointment typically lasts between 10 and 20 minutes.
