Tattoo & Mole Reduction in Details
Laser tattoo removal works by accelerating the natural fading process that happens to tattoos over time. Because the ink trapped in your skin is a foreign substance, your body’s immune system is constantly trying to remove it. As the laser’s light is absorbed by the tattoo ink, the particles instantly shatter into tiny fragments. By breaking the ink into small fragments, we’re able to make it easier for your body to naturally eliminate it. Lasers are the only way to break down tattoo ink without harming the surrounding skin. They’re the only treatment that can penetrate deep enough into the skin to harm the ink without causing damage to the skin itself. After the weeks following your treatment, you’ll notice the appearance of your tattoo gradually lighten – this is your body flushing away the destroyed ink particles. A series of treatments is needed to completely remove the tattoo until it has been completely erased.
Laser tattoo removal is generally safe when performed by a qualified technician or doctor. During your consultation, don't be afraid to ask about all the potential side effects and risks based on your situation.
What are the Preparations:
Before you book your tattoo removal treatment, it is recommended you take advantage of a free, one-on-one consultation with a qualified clinician. This is a very important step in understanding what happens during a treatment of your tattoo. You will get personalised information based on your skin type, your tattoo, your medical history and your expectations.
During the procedure
Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.
You should first schedule a consultation with a trained professional who can evaluate your tattoo and advise you on the process. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique.
After the procedure:
To get the best results from your treatment, you are advised to:
- Avoid sun exposure and any cosmetic tanning (spray tans, self-tanning products and solariums)
- Speak to your doctor about any medications you are taking that may impact your treatment
- Stop smoking before and during treatment, because smoking slows healing and how quickly the pigment is removed after treatment
Tattoo will be removed and the area becomes normal within days.
