Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure that uses laser technology to remove tattoos. It works by breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo into smaller fragments, which are then naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system. Laser tattoo removal is the most effective and commonly used method for removing unwanted tattoos.
It’s important to note that the effectiveness of laser tattoo removal can vary based on the colors of the tattoo. Some colours, like black and dark blue, are easier to remove, while others, like light green and yellow, can be more challenging. Laser tattoo removal is generally safe, but it can cause temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, blistering, or scabbing in the treated area. These side effects are usually mild and subside within a few days to a week.

Laser tattoo removal works by using high-intensity laser beams to target and break down the ink pigments in a tattoo. The laser emits energy that is absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing it to fragment into smaller particles. These tiny ink particles are then naturally processed and eliminated by the body’s immune system over time. The effectiveness of the treatment depends on factors such as the tattoo’s size, colour, and depth, as well as the patient’s skin type. Multiple sessions are often required for complete removal.
After laser tattoo removal, patients can expect some immediate changes to the treated area. The skin may appear red or swollen. Over the following days and weeks, the tattoo will gradually fade as the body flushes out the fragmented ink particles. It’s essential to follow our post-treatment care instructions, which include keeping the area clean, avoiding sun exposure, and applying recommended creams/ointments to aid in healing and minimise the risk of scarring.
Laser tattoo removal can significantly fade or remove a tattoo, but complete removal may not always be achieved. The extent of removal depends on several factors, including the tattoo’s size, color, ink type, and the patient’s skin characteristics. Some tattoos may respond exceptionally well to laser treatment and be nearly completely erased, while others may leave behind faint remnants.
Laser tattoo removal can be uncomfortable and the level of discomfort can vary depending on factors such as the tattoo’s location, size, and the individual’s pain tolerance.
