How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

We use the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser, which is one of the most commonly used lasers for tattoo removal. The Q-Switched lasers produce a high-powered beam of laser light at a speed that is too fast to heat the skin, the very short pulse of light penetrates the skin without breaking it and is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles

The ink particles are then broken down into smaller pieces; your body’s immune system recognises these particles as something that shouldn’t be there and removes them naturally via the body’s own natural elimination system.

A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments. Under normal conditions, the process which breaks down the tattoo ink begins 2 weeks after the laser treatment. The ink will continue to evacuate for approximately 4-6 weeks. For this reason, treatments are scheduled no closer than 4 weeks apart.

Laser tattoo removal before and after


  • Little preparation is required before your treatment

  • Sunbeds or sunbathing should be avoided at least 4 weeks before your treatment

  • A reduced blood sugar level can make you feel faint or queasy so it’s essential that you eat something about an hour before treatment

How Is The Treatment Carried Out?

  • Protective eye shields are provided and the skin will be cleaned

  • The laser applicator is then passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light, an audible clicking noise is often heard as the ink particles break down

  • An instant whitening or blistering of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly

  • Immediately following the treatment an ice pack will be applied to soothe the treated area

  • The area will be tender for up to 48 hours

  • A bandage or patch may be used to protect the area

  • The treated location will need to be covered with sunblock when out in the sun during the healing process

  • Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over the following 4-8 weeks as the body disperses it
