Lasers are used to remove your tattoos. To protect your eyes, we provide you with specialised eye shields.
And in case your skin reacts unexpectedly to the laser, we first test out a small portion of your skin before going ahead with the entire process.
Also, each session will be spaced apart with plenty of time for your skin to heal completely.
This minimises the damage to your skin and prevents long-term harm.
What is the Difference between Laser Tattoo removal and other methods?
Non-laser options of tattoo removal (like saline cream and lactic acid fluids) are injected into the skin with a needle, and often by non medical personnel.
This needle damages your skin each time it is used, leaving it open to infection, as well as allergic reaction to the chemicals injected.
Afterwards, the treated area often forms scabs, the problem with this is that severe scarring and hyperpigmentation often occur. On top of this, the ink will not be degraded in any way.
Laser is 100% effective in removing ink in only a few sessions, when the correct laser and technique is used by a qualified practitioner.
The only downside to laser tattoo removal is the free hair removal that often occurs at the same time.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
This varies depending on your tattoo.
The larger the tattoo and the more ink it has, the more expensive the removal.
However, our prices are quoted for complete removal and not per session. Each tattoo is priced individually based on the colours, size, amount of ink and age.
On average, the process costs several hundred dollars and sometimes more than a thousand.
