Tattoo removal
 
Many people regret having a tattoo and no longer want to live with it.
 
Tattoos can essentially be removed in two ways:
 
1. Using an excision technique under local or general anaesthesia depending on the size and numbers of the tattoo. Excision means 'cutting out' the tattoo and this necessarily leads to permanent scarring.
 
2.Laser tattoo removal
Laser  treatment provides a safe and effecitve way deal with tattoos. A specialist laser  that emits an intense beam of light directed into the tattoo is used.  The light breaks up the ink particles that form the tattoo, reducing them to minute fragments which are naturally absorbed through the body's own cleansing mechanism.  During a course of treatments the tattoo becomes progressively lighter until it has faded or is completely removed.  Tattoos generally requre 8-10 treatments. The treatment can be uncomfortable but a local anaesthetic cream can be applied to sensitive areas.Our technology can remove most tattoos but as they can vary in size, density and colour some respond better to treatment than others.  A consultation with one of our specialists will determine your suitability for treatment and realistically determine the expected results.
