At Perfect Image Consultants we achieve desired tattoo removal results with a Q switched Nd-YAG laser.
The extent of tattoo removal depends on the type of tattoo, size, colours and type of pigments originally used.
We advise you to carefully consider tattoo removal before treatment as not all tattoo inks respond to laser treatment and certain colours may even become darker.
what to expect
You will agree on the treatment area with your doctor and local anaesthetic will be injected to ensure the treatment is not uncomfortable.
You will be given protective eyewear and the treatment may feel like an elastic band being flicked against your skin.
Tattoo removal laser treatment may cause a superficial skin reaction post-procedure. This is normal and immediate whitening of the treated area usually lasts for several minutes. You may then develop blisters, crusts-, or scabs within 12-72 hours which, in most cases, last 1-2 weeks. Your recovery time may be prolonged depending on the scale of the treatment you receive. Once the scab separates, treated areas commonly appear pink or pale with loss of skin pigment, which is usually temporary.
The number of tattoo removal sessions required varies between cases. Most tattoos require-, 6-12 treatments over several months-, More challenging cases may need 15-20 sessions over a longer period.

What colours can be removed with laser tattoo removal?

How many sessions of laser tattoo removal will I need?
The number laser tattoo removal sessions required will vary from person to person. It will depend upon how big the tattoo is, how long you have had the tattoo and the colours of the tattoo.
Will there be scarring after the laser tattoo removal treatment?
There is a slight chance of scarring, however, during your consultation, a full medical history will be taken and your skin examined. The doctor will then be able to advise you further. If you are prone to keloid scarring, for example, this must be made clear during your consultation.
Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
At Perfect Image Consultants, we give our laser tattoo removal patients the option to have the area to be treated anesthetised. If you choose to have local anaesthetic the treatment is a lot more comfortable.
