What are laser tattoo removal treatments?
Do you have tattoo regret? Or perhaps you aren’t happy with the design or placement of your tattoo. Then you need laser tattoo removal by our expert professionals at Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic.
Laser tattoo removal is a procedure to get rid of the ink of your tattoo to reveal clear, unblemished skin. Lasers are the most popular and effective method to remove a permanent tattoo. Are you ready to rid yourself of unwanted skin art? Contact Dr Malay Mehta at his Aesthetic Clinic today to find out the information you need.
Lasers are the most popular technique of tattoo removal. We use a laser emitting device to send wavelengths of light to your tattoo to permanently remove it from your skin.
How does the laser work to remove a tattoo from your skin?
The lasers used for tattoo removal send a specific wavelength of light into your skin. This wavelength is absorbed by the tattoo ink, which causes it to break into small particles. Your body’s natural filtering systems then eliminate these particles.
How many treatments will be required?
This depends on the colours and size of the tattoos, but generally, our patients require 6 to 10 sessions spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
Darker colours such as black, blue and purple as well as red ink-based tattoos respond quicker and more effectively to the laser. Greens and yellows can take longer and may require further treatments to produce significant results.
The ideal candidates for the removal of a permanent tattoo are:
- Currently in good health
- Not suffering from serious chronic health issues
- Not pregnant or breastfeeding
- Not allergic to tattoo ink
- Not on any medication that could increase your sensitivity to light
- Not injured or have skin irritation to the tattoo site.
- Not aware of any issues with abnormal scarring.
At your first appointment with Dr Malay Mehta, he will perform an assessment and determine if you are an appropriate candidate for this procedure.
What are the benefits
of tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a non-surgical method and has a number of benefits:
- No visible scarring
- Effective fading and removal of the ink
- Minimal to no recovery time
- Considered one of the safest methods for tattoo removal.
You will have an initial consultation with one of our experts at Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic to assess the colour and size of the tattoo you wish to have removed. From there, we will work with you to decide the best treatment to remove the ink.
The procedure for laser removal is relatively straightforward. We calibrate the machine to emit the light waves that will break down the specific colours of your tattoo. You may experience a mild pricking or warming sensation as the laser works. Treatments can be as quick as 15 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo, and there is generally no downtime associated with the process.
