How does Laser Tattoo Removal work

TattooRemoval_CROPPEDRegretting that tattoo? Have you looked around for a way to get rid of it and can only find quick fixes to remove the tattoo such as creams and lotions that do little more than leave you with sore red skin and an empty wallet?

If you’re looking for a method that really does do what it promises than look no further than Laser Tattoo removal.

How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?

Unlike previous methods of tattoo removal that involved painful dermabrasion (scraping off the top layer of skin), Cryosurgery (freezing the skin then peeling away layers of the tattoo) or Excision (cutting the tattoo out) Laser Tattoo Removal is non abrasive and won’t cause scarring.

Laser Tattoo Removal has the ability to break down the ink molecules in your tattoo into smaller pieces and allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream where your body will then flush it out of your system causing the ink to disappear.

Why won’t creams or lotions work?

The ink in a tattoo is injected into the second layer of the skin and as it is larger than your blood will stay there permanently. This means that these creams that claim to remove the tattoo are not strong enough to remove the ink. The method of Laser Tattoo Removal is the only effective way to break down that ink!

The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic offer our clients a safe, almost virtually pain free Laser Tattoo Removal method that won’t cause scarring and can be done in as little as 5 minutes (depending on the size of the tattoo).

Our Medical Grade Q-Switched Lasers are best for removing black, red and other coloured pigments and safely remove unwanted tattoos as well as cosmetic tattoos such as eyebrows or lips and. Laser Tattoo Removal can also be performed on people with darker skin and our the skin surrounding your tattoo will not be damaged.

When having Laser Tattoo Removal it best to be aware the most common side effects, can include redness and swelling. In the case of some dark tattoos and most light tattoos, some blistering may occur for up to a week after the treatment. These side effects are part of the normal healing Laser Tattoo Removal process as this is the body responding to the laser treatment and flushing away the ink being broken down.
