Medical grade options for effective laser tattoo removal treatments

Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment

If you have a tattoo that you regret, laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to remove those unwanted tattoos. Q-Switched lasers are considered by dermatologists to be the most effective, safe and reliable way to remove unwanted multi-coloured tattoos with consistent predictable results. Tattoos are made of two main types of ink: Indian ink for amateur tattoos or multi-coloured professional tattoos. Certain colours of ink are easier to treat i.e. black, dark blue, red, orange, brown colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but, yellow, purple, pastel colours and fleshy toned pigment can be more difficult.

FAQs

How does a tattoo removal laser work?

Q-Switched Lasers that generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatments. The very short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.

How is the treatment carried out?

The skin will be cleaned and then the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible ‘clicking’ noise is often heard as the ink particles shatter. After treatment, a soothing lotion and a light dressing may be applied. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

How does the treatment feel?

Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. A skin cooling device may be utilised to reduce any discomfort.

How does the skin look after treatment?

An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours. Some tattoos will form a graze which must be left to heal naturally. Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over the next 4 to 8 weeks as the body disperses it.

Are there any side effects?

Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. Change to skin texture and scarring is possible, though uncommon, and is more likely if any grazes are not allowed to heal naturally. There may be loss of the natural tanning ability in the area treated, which usually improves with time.

How many treatments are necessary?

This depends on several factors, including the density and colour of inks and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.

How long does each treatment take?

Treatment time varies depending upon the size of the tattoo but generally is between 10 – 30 minutes.

What is the consultation procedure?

Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

Always friendly and easy to deal with.

I have had several fractional laser sessions at Lynton Lasers on what was very severe post acne scarring to the whole of my back. The scarring varied in severity from slight pitting to large patches (2cm squares) of hypertrophic scars. These scars were approximately 18 years old and something I had just learnt to live with. I never really believed anything could be done about them. We started the course of laser with a curious mind to see what results could be achieved but with very little expectation. The treatments were quick and it is absolutely tolerable. There was some sunburn type of heat to the area afterwards but pretty much completely gone after an hour or so. The area then scabbed and I kept it heavily moisturised with a petroleum for about a week. The results have gradually been improving over a 6 month period with in this time I probably had about 3 treatments. The results have been outstanding, the scarring is still visible and will never disappear completely but the difference has been life changing. The confidence I feel to wear clothing and swimwear that reveal that area of my body without feeling embarrassed is amazing. I am hooked and am now curious as what else laser machines can achieve for me!!! Many thanks to the Lynton Team.

Megan, Sandbach

I have been going to the Lynton Clinic for laser hair removal and it's one of the best decisions I've made! Emma is always so welcoming, explaining the treatment to me and making me feel completely at ease each time. The clinic is extremely clean and hygienic and adheres to all the covid-safe rules too.

Charlotte Farnworth

I have been going to Lynton Clinic now for a couple of years. I guess something that could be considered quite a daunting experience is actually quite the opposite....Kirsty is very professional and knowledgable about the various different treatments on offer. I feel as though real advice is given, and appropriate recommendations are made. For me there is no focus on pushing sales or further treatments.On top of the excellent level of professionalism is an air of warmth and friendliness. This starts from the moment you walk through the door, greeted by Emma with a friendly smile and a nice hot cup of coffee!If you are considering laser treatment I cannot recommend Lynton Clinic enough!!Steve B
