When thinking about removing a tattoo, many people can regret both the decision to get a tattoo as well as the particular tattoo chosen. They may be happy with the actual tattoo but can dislike the design, durability or location.
There are many companies that offer 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.
Why? The ink in a tattoo is injected into the second layer of the skin and as it is larger than your blood it will stay there permanently. This means that these creams that claim to remove the tattoo are not strong enough to remove the ink.
If you’re thinking about getting rid of that tattoo then Laser Tattoo Removal may be the best option for you! Laser Tattoo Removal is the process of breaking these ink molecules in your tattoo into smaller pieces and allowing them to be absorbed into the bloodstream where your body will then flush it out of your system causing the ink to disappear.
Past methods of removing tattoos have included dermabrasion which scrapes off the top layer of the skin, Cryosurgery which involves freezing the skin then peeling away layers to eliminate the tattoo or Excision where the skin that contained the tattoo was cut out. These methods caused scarring and were usually quite painful.
With our Medical Grade Q-Switched Lasers The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic offers our clients a safe, almost virtually pain free Laser Tattoo Removal method that won’t cause scarring and can be done on your lunch break.
Our Medical Grade Q-Switched Lasers safely remove unwanted tattoos as well as cosmetic tattoos such as eyebrows or lips and are best for removing black, red and other coloured pigments. This laser can also be used for people with darker skin and our lasers won’t damage the skin surrounding your tattoo.
The most common side effects, when having Laser Tattoo Removal 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 process as the body is responding to the laser treatment by activating tools that will flush away the ink that has been broken down.
