If you have a tattoo that no longer suits your lifestyle, YourSkin Clinic offers a gentle laser tattoo removal service to significantly reduce or eliminate it.
How does it work?
We use a state of the art REVLite® C6 HOYA ConBio laser to obtain maximum results, and to ensure your comfort and safety. The REVlite is a Q-Switches Nd:Yag laser that uses PhotoAcoustic technology for tattoo removal, with a strong history of efficacy worldwide.
The laser device emits a wavelength of light into the skin, causing the tattoo ink to be broken down into particles which are eliminated by the body’s natural filtering system. The REVLite® C6 HOYA ConBio promotes maximum removal of tattoo ink whilst leaving surrounding skin undamaged.
How many sessions will I need?
Several visits are generally required, and in most cases, the tattoo should lighten further in the weeks following each treatment as your body continues to remove ink particles via its elimination system.
Does it hurt?
Laser tattoo removal has been described as similar to the feeling of being flicked with an elastic band. All of our treatments are medically supervised to maximise your comfort and safety. The extent and duration of each treatment will depend upon the size, depth and ink type of your tattoo. A local anaesthetic is available if required. We also offer anaesthetic cream or gas.
Are there any side effects?
Skin may swell and turn white in the hours following each treatment. This may be followed by blistering and the formation of a thin crust on the skin over subsequent days, however skin will normally heal within a week or so.
We can advise you further on methods of after care to promote your comfort and maximise healing.
What are the results?
How effectively your tattoo responds to laser tattoo removal depends on a range of factors. The most significant of these is the type of ink that was used to create your tattoo in the first place. Inks used in professional tattoos are often more resilient than those used in amateur tattoos, and some colours are more resistant than others. Because of this, it is impossible to guarantee results.
