Laser is the most effective treatment for removing any unwanted tattoos. This method utilises both Q-Switch and Nd-YAG lasers, which precisely target the pigments within the tattoo. The type of laser used during your treatment will depend on the pigment colours. At Bay Medical Aesthetics we offer safe, fast, and effective laser tattoo removal in Melbourne.
During your first visit at our laser tattoo removal clinic, an in-depth consultation will be undertaken to discuss your treatment plan and assess the tattoo and skin type. The treatment site is cleaned and topical anaesthesia (numbing cream) is applied for 30-60 minutes. The laser treatment takes 10-20 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the tattoo. A simple dressing may be applied after the procedure. Patients are advised to keep the treated area dry and clean for a few days. Some discolouration may occur afterwards, but this will fade within a few weeks.
Laser tattoo removal involves applying short pulses of light energy to the skins surface, essentially shattering the pigment within a tattoo. The laser light energy is accurately targeted into the ink pigment, protecting the surrounding skin.
The effectiveness of laser removal will also depend on the colour and depth of the tattoo. Homemade tattoos are often applied with an uneven hand and their removal may require extra treatment.
The method your tattoo artist uses to mix tattoo pigments is also an important factor, as colours with a blue, green, or orange base can be more difficult to remove.

Most ink colours can be removed using laser tattoo removal. However, the process your tattoo artist mixes the tattoo pigments is an important factor. Colours with a blue, green or orange base can be difficult to remove and may require extra sessions.
For effective removal of a tattoo, multiple treatments may be required. Between 5 to 10 visits are typically recommended for optimal removal of a full colour tattoo, performed once every 4 to 6 weeks. The number of treatments and cost will ultimately depend on the size and colour of your tattoo. Visit us for a free consultation to discuss your treatment plan.
