Laser tattoo removal works by using a laser to break down the tattoo ink into tiny fragments that are then naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. Usually, it takes a series of treatments to completely remove an unwanted tattoo. In most cases, the process is safe if done by an experienced practitioner who is registered with a recognised professional body.
Is tattoo removal better now?
When it comes to choosing a practitioner, check they have a minimum of three years’ experience in skin and laser to ensure the best results for your tattoo removal treatment. It’s also important to choose someone who uses the latest technology. For example, we are one of only a few tattoo removal clinics in London to use the revolutionary Picosure machine which is capable of removing most colours in just 6-8 treatments.

The latest generation of tattoo removal machines uses a pulsed laser to remove the ink from your skin. The picosure laser produces ultra-short pulse bursts of energy, so fast that the ink pigment is shattered into small particles that are easily absorbed by the body. This allows it to clear darker colours, including blues and greens, much more effectively than older tattoo removal techniques.
The treatment doesn’t hurt – it can cause some redness and swelling, which will fade in the weeks after your sessions. It’s also important to keep the area covered with a medical-grade bandage for up to 48 hours after the lasering, and don’t exercise in it. Then, after a week or so, you can massage the treated skin with Bio-Oil (a scar softening product) for a couple of minutes each day.
