Lasers are the standard treatment in removing tattoos by selectively targeting the pigment colour. The type of laser used depends upon the pigment colours. Most often, a Q-Switch Nd YAG laser is used since it can target many colours.
However, for effective removal of a tattoo, multiple treatments may be required. The effectiveness of a laser session depends on the colour and the depth of the tattoo. Tattoo artists can infuse the dye at single or multiple planes beneath the skin. Homemade tattoos are often applied with an uneven hand and their removal may be more difficult. The way tattoo pigments are mixed are also an important factor to the laser outcome. Colours with a blue, green or orange base may be more difficult to break.
Laser tattoo removal is a safe, fast and effective procedure. The treatment site is cleaned and topical anaesthesia is applied for about 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure takes about 10 – 20 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo. A simple dressing may be applied after the procedure. Patients are advised to keep the treated are dry and clean for few days after the procedure. Following the treatment there might be some discoloration, which will fade after few weeks.
Normally 5 to 10 treatment visits, done once every 4 to 6 weeks may be required for optimal removal of the tattoo. The number of visits and the cost depends on the size of the tattoo.

"I feel very confident having laser by a medical practitioner compared to a therapist with laser training. I was contacted via text post laser for a follow up and check however experienced no negative side effects."
"Was very professional and advanced - and so well priced. I feel confident that it’s coming from Dr Aarthi- she explains everything and the other facialists are really good as well. Finally someone who knows what she is talking about and accessible! I’ve been trying to clear my skin for so long - I can’t tell you how many other laser clinic I have been too selling me products and nothing made an impact. But ive had carbon and peels just after a few treatments it’s looking clear and radiant. Will be coming here from now on and highly recommend it."
