How Does Tattoo Removal Work?
Our Tattoo Removal laser targets the ink under the surface of the skin, shattering it into tiny particles that are then processed and removed by the body’s lymphatic system. Tattoo Removal is a gradual process that typically requires multiple treatments. Certain colors of tattoo ink may be more effectively removed than others- blue and black respond well to laser treatment, whereas lighter colored inks may be more difficult to treat.
What Areas Can be Treated With Tattoo Removal? And What do Treatments Feel Like?
Unwanted tattoos anywhere on the body are suitable for Tattoo Removal treatment.
Laser Tattoo Removal treatments can be uncomfortable. Depending on the location and size of your tattoo, topical numbing cream may be applied before treatment. Pro-Nox, an analgesic delivery system to ease pain and anxiety during treatment is also available to increase your comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are newer tattoos easier to remove?
Actually, older tattoos may be easier to remove than newer ones. This is because the body may have already broken down some of the pigment that a tattoo removal laser will target in order to remove it.
Can tattoos be removed in one session?
Although you may see some results after your first tattoo removal session, it will likely take a least 8 sessions to completely remove the tattoos, depending on the size and colors.
Can I take ibuprofen after tattoo removal?
Ibuprofen is a great option to reduce any discomfort and swelling you might have after your tattoo removal. Tylenol is an ibuprofen medication that will thin the blood, do not use these.
Can I use Vaseline on tattoo removal?
Yes, as long as you apply it gently, Vaseline or petroleum jelly can be a useful moisturizer for healing tattoo removal areas.
Can tattoos be fully removed?
In some cases, tattoos can be essentially erased, however, not all tattoos are removable with tattoo removal lasers. The ease and degree of erasure of tattoos depend on the age of the tattoo, the colors used, and the location and/or size of it. We recommend you book a laser consultation with one of our Medical Technicians.
Can you be allergic to laser tattoo removal?
No, tattoo removal lasers use high-intensity light rather than any chemical compound to eliminate or reduce pigment from tattoos. The area may get irritated as a reaction to the treatment.
Do you have to shave for tattoo removal?
If a tattoo is in an area that has hair growth, we will shave or wax the area prior to using the tattoo removal laser so as not to affect normal hair growth.
Does drinking water help with tattoo removal?
Staying hydrated is important for all bodily functions and being dehydrated during or after a laser tattoo removal session may make it harder for your body to quickly eliminate the targeted pigment.
Does tattoo removal damage the skin?
Your skin should not experience long-term side effects after laser tattoo removal.
How can I speed up tattoo removal?
The best way to achieve tattoo removal is to keep all your appointments, follow your doctor’s instructions carefully, and keep your skin moisturized and protected from sun exposure.
