Most Common Questions Regarding Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal is not an intricate process, but understandably, people will have many questions. We have put together a list of the most frequent questions we have received for your convenience:
How Long Does It Take to Remove a Tattoo?
The removal time and the number of sessions required to entirely remove a tattoo depend on a few things. The colour of the ink plays a role, as darker inks (black, blue, red) are easier to remove. Additionally, the size of the tattoo has the most significant impact. Given that we suggest 30-minute sessions, a massive piece can take some time to eliminate.
How Painful is Tattoo Removal?
Most clients do not consider our laser tattoo removal process painful. However, each individual differs, so we cannot promise you will not experience pain. We use a state-of-the-art cooling system to manage skin temperature, and most clients describe it as the feeling of a rubber band snapped against the skin.
Does Tattoo Removal Leave a Scar?
While it is uncommon, laser tattoo removal can leave scarring behind. We continuously monitor the result of the laser on your skin closely to provide adequate feedback should we think scarring is more likely in your case.
How Frequently Can I Have Laser Tattoo Removal Sessions?
Our clients usually want to remove their tattoos as soon as possible. However, given that your body takes time to remove tattoo pigment shattered with the lasers, we highly recommend leaving at least eight weeks between sessions. These intervals understandably make the process take much longer, but they will ensure you receive the best results.
Can I Receive Partial/Micro-Pigmentation Tattoo Removal?
Yes, you can. Given how precise our laser is, it can selectively target ink spots as small as pin heads. We can remove parts of a tattoo and accommodate requests to remove micro-pigment tattoos.
Can Laser Tattoo Removal Cause Cancer?
No, it cannot. Our lasers do not affect the molecular structure of the DNA since they produce non-ionising radiation. You can get laser tattoo removals multiple times without increased risk.
