Laser tattoo removal that is SAFE, EFFECTIVE and AFFORDABLE
1 in 5 of us now has a tattoo. As permanent body art rises in popularity, so does the incidence of tattoo regret. Whether your tattoo is technically poor, out of fashion, or if you simply feel it no longer reflects your personality, we can offer you the option to remove it without causing damage to your skin.
Do your research
Not all lasers and practitioners were created equal, and the tattoo removal industry is one that has been operating without government regulation since 2010. This means that we are seeing an increasing number of people with burns and scars caused by untrained and inexperienced practitioners using cheap, substandard equipment.
Don’t waste your time and money with cheap equipment.
Cheap ineffective (passive) lasers aren’t powerful enough to fully remove your tattoo. You may notice some initial fading, but are unlikely to achieve a satisfactory clinical endpoint to your treatment. We use hospital grade equipment (an ACTIVE Q-switched Nd: YAG Laser) to remove your tattoo safely, effectively and affordably.
Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe and if carried out by a trained specialist using the correct equipment, produces fantastic results. We use an Active Q-switched Nd: YAG laser, the ‘gold standard’ treatment for safe and effective tattoo removal. This advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system.
There is a big difference between Active and Passive lasers.
Active lasers are significantly more expensive to buy and maintain but they also provide the most effective results, which is why they are the choice for NHS hospitals. Passive lasers can be easily obtained for a few hundred pounds and are less powerful and effective overall. As with most things, you get what you pay for.
You can tell difference easily between these types of laser as passive lasers often have a flexible arm, like a vacuum hose, whilst active lasers have an articulated arm.
Don’t risk your health with untrained practitioners.
The lack of regulation means that laser technicians can now legally operate with the minimum level of training, often only that provided by the laser manufacturer which usually lasts less than 1 day. Our technicians have undergone extensive training with Lynton Lasers (laser suppliers to the NHS) including training in Advanced Skin and Laser Applications and specific Tattoo Removal training.
In addition to our training and experience, we also offer our clients a ‘wrap around’ service for tattoo removal.
