Unwanted tattoos and semi-permanent makeup can be removed or lightened gradually over a series of sessions using a laser. The energy from the laser breaks down the tattoo ink into tiny fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed out of the body.
The cost of removing/ lightening a tattoo will depend on its size and the number of sessions needed.
Tattoo removal has some limitations including:
- it can be uncomfortable
- it is a very slow process – 10 or more sessions may be needed to remove the tattoo
- many tattoos cannot be completely removed – it is quite common to have some ink left in the skin
•some colours do not fade as well as others
Prices depend on size of tattoo to be removed. A full consultation will be required, and suitable pricing provided prior to treatment commencing.
