Our Tattoo Removal Clinic
At Laserlife Clinic, we’ve seen a rise in the number of tattoo removal procedures at our tattoo removal clinic in London.
While tattoos are a great addition for many, they can also be a huge regret for other, Laser tattoo removal can erase this regret.
At LaserLife, we use an Active Q-Switch (AQS) laser to remove tattoos. The AQS method is acknowledged by dermatologists as the ‘gold standard’ laser tattoo removal treatment.
Is it difficult to remove a tattoo?
Removing a tattoo is difficult as when the tattoo ink is first injected into the skin; the pigment encapsulates it in a band of collagen, once this happens, it’s too large for the body to naturally remove it by its normal defense mechanisms.
As a result, laser treatment will be very much required in order to remove tattoos. Laser tattoo removal treatments such as AQS can successfully remove tattoos, and its efficacy and safety have been continually proven in numerous clinical trials and treatments.
Furthermore, treatment results are reliable with little or no evidence that the tattoo ever existed.
Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?
Tattoo Removal feels similar to a hot pinprick, whilst this is mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. We use Cryo cooling technology to reduce discomfort.
How does the laser remove tattoos?
The AQS lasers generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse, the laser light is first absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces enabling the natural immune defenses to disperse the ink. Over a course of treatments, the tattoo begins fading until it disappears completely.
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Require a Consultation?
Prior to your laser tattoo removal treatment, you will need to attend a FREE consultation at our tattoo removal clinic. During, this we will discuss your medical history to confirm suitability for treatment.
This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions about the treatment.
Before your tattoo removal course commences, we will ask you to give informed consent. In addition, we will carry out a small test patch will need to at least 24 hours prior to your first session. This consultation allows us to discuss the predicted length of treatment and overall cost.
