How does our laser tattoo removal Droitwich treatment work?
Outline Skincare specilise in offering laser tattoo removal Droitwich. Our laser creates an intense high-energy beam of light that can shatter tattoo pigment into small particles which the body's immune system is then able to target and carry away. This is known as phagocytosis. After each treatment session a gradual fading of the tattoo occurs. The risk of scarring is very minimal with this laser treatment.
Does it hurt?
Most patients tolerate the treatment very well, and describe the treatment as a slight stinging sensation. It is similar to having a tattoo applied. After the treatment, there may be a slight crust present which will heal in around a week.
Is my tattoo suitable for laser treatment?
The laser that we use has 2 different wavelengths and is suitable for treating most colours of ink. Most tattoos with black, orange, yellow and red colours are relatively straightforward to treat. Difficult colours include: green, aqua blue, pink, white and purple.
How many treatments will I need?
Tattoos vary so much; every tattoo is different and may respond differently to laser light. We cannot say exactly how many treatments it will take for your tattoo to fade away. As a guide, typically amateur tattoos can take anything from 2 to 6 treatments and professional tattoos from 6 to 15 treatments, although some tattoos may take more than this. Without seeing the tattoo it is impossible to be more accurate so we would recommend booking a free consultation with our medical team. Mary, our clinic nurse, has over 17 years experience with tattoo removal by laser.
Does it scar?
Previously tattoo removal had unfortunately become associated with scarring because the first lasers used many years ago were a different generation. These were often surgical CO2 lasers which burnt the skin and caused significant scarring. The type of lasers we use nowadays are much more sophisticated, and work by targeting and breaking up the ink pigment.
Over the last 2 decades, Mary has removed thousands of tattoos successfully without scarring. However, we cannot guarantee there will be no scarring. There is often a slight lightening or darkening of the skin pigment, which usually resolves over time. To reduce the risk, we assess each individual at consultation prior to treatment, and we recommend the use of a sunblock, minimum SPF30, whilst undergoing laser treatment.
