Tattoo removal lasers (Q-switch lasers) are extremely hot, operate in a very narrow frequency and are very hot and fast. The speed and heat is crucial to cracking the ink particles apart without harming the surrounding tissues. Q-switch treatment causes the tattoo pigment particles to shatter into smaller pieces, these pieces are then removed by the normal body filtration process.

Tattoo removal requires numerous treatments spaced out 6-8 weeks apart. As the tattoo fades you should wait several months between treatment to facilitate ink resolution and minimize unwanted side effects, Fading can continue after months or even years.

Can you remove tattoos on darker skin types?

Yes, we can treat skin types 1-6 however it may not be as efficient and may be a longer process due to lower settings to avoid any reactions.

 

Can I remove a tattoo on any part of my body?

Yes, you can Blood and lymphatic supply vary by anatomic region as does the efficiency of the tattoo removal in such corresponding anatomic areas. The head and neck have the largest amount of lymph notes and have a large vascular supply, this causes an increased immune response to have a better removal of the ink particles. The upper and lower trunk of the body also have a vast vascular and lymphatic drainage trailing behind the head and neck.

 

Can I remove colored tattoos?

Yes, you can, Black is the easiest to remove as it easily absorbs, red is the easiest to remove out of most colors other colors like blue, green, yellow etc. are more difficult to remove and warrant higher points.

 

Can I layer on top after tattoo removal?

Yes, but it necessary that the tattoo is larger and darker than the tattoo that was removed. On some occasions a new tattoo may require more sessions.

 

Is tattoo removal painful?

Everyone takes pain differently; however, we do ice the area prior treatment and also during treatment – we do not recommend any numbing cream as some is absorbed into the bloodstream and may cause adverse reactions such as and heart palpitations, vagueness, anxiety, tingling in the area and risk of anaphylaxis (allergy).

 

 

 

Is there any precautions for tattoo removal?

Absolutely,

  • there may be an allergic reaction to ink primarily in red in

  • Skin types 4/5 have an increased chance of hyperpigmentation or scarring.

  • Any history of Keloid scarring

  • If you are feeling unwell (flu, common cold)

  • Smoking/ drugs

  • Chronic disease (delaying healing process)

  • Elderly clients might take longer to heal.

  • Immune – comprised patients (HIV, AIDS, Arthritis, Allergies) may take longer to heal or may not be able to flush out the ink.

  • Allergies

  • Tanning (natural/fake) increase the risk of burns.

  • Clients to stay out of the sun or at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.

  • What should I expect after treatment?

  • Immediately after treatment, frosting occurs, dissipating soon after

  • Pinpoint bleeding and oedema usually resolves with 24/72 hours.

  • A crust would appear over the whole tattoo – this normally clears up 2-3 weeks after treatment. Some tattoo pigment may be found in the crust.

  • Post treatment care consists of simple wound care and sterile dressing.

  • Fading would be noticed (post treatment after 8 weeks) and re-treatment energy levels can be tailored depending on clinical response observed.

  • Most tattoos are going to itch for several weeks after treatment and the skin may feel dry and flaky – you may use barrier cream on the area.

Is there any side effects?

Side effects may occur, and they include.

  • Some colored pigments may turn black after treatment.

  • If tattoo darkening does occur, after 8 weeks the newly darkened tattoo can be treated as it was black ink.

  • RARELY, when yellow cadmium sulphide is used to brighten the red or yellow portion of the tattoo, a photoallergic reaction may occur.

  • Treatment consists of strict sunlight avoidance – must always wear sunscreen or take antihistamines or oral imflammatories if needed.

  • Treatment may mobilize the ink and may generate an allergic reaction.

  • Blisters may occur post treatment – if this does occur it is important you do not manipulate this secondary skin change. Early removal of the blister can cause scaring.
