At Beautology we expertly deliver laser treatments which include Tattoo Removal. Equipped with the most advanced technology in the world, The POLARIS Ruby laser. We aim to offer complete removal of the tattoo; not just fading of the tattoo.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO REMOVE MY TATTOO?
This question is particularly important, especially if you have big event coming up. Duration of tattoo removal varies with each tattoo and it depends on several factors:
- Age of your tattoo
- Colour and the amount of ink used
- Type of ink used
- Location on the body
Our Aestheticians will discuss all of this in detail before advancing with the procedure.
DOES TATTOO REMOVAL HURT?
It is a common belief that tattoo removal is excruciating, yet most patients say that the sensation of removal is comparable to having a tattoo applied.
Common descriptions include the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin or bacon grease – basically it is uncomfortable but bearable.
WILL TATTOO REMOVAL SCAR?
Many patients are concerned about scarring from laser tattoo removal – they understandably want their skin to look as natural as possible after they have completed the tattoo removal process.
What many people do not know is that any scarring that remains after a tattoo removal procedure is often left over from when the tattoo was originally applied by the tattoo artist.
Although scarring is not usually caused by the removal process it is a small possibility, it is important to follow the correct aftercare to minimise any visible scarring.
WHAT AFTERCARE ROUTINE WILL I NEED TO FOLLOW AFTER TREATMENT?
Proper post treatment care is your best chance at ensuring your skin recovers as quickly as possible. The better condition your skin is in prior to treatment, the better your results will be.
We have invested in the highest quality Post Laser Cream. Our advice during the post treatment phase does not end after each session. Our specialists are also available to provide support using our afterhours number available to every client.
Post treatment care is vital to ensure the treated area heals effectively to achieve your desired results. The following steps should be carefully executed:
- Apply Post Laser cream to the treatment area twice a day for two weeks following treatment
- Wear loose fitting clothes around the removal site to prevent rubbing
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
We encourage practitioners to not gloss over side effects during the initial consultation – explain the various side effects in full detail. This way, when your patients commit to the tattoo removal process, they are informed and are not shocked the next day when their skin is sensitive, and they are potentially limited from their normal activities or clothing.
HOW DOES TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
At the Beautology Clinic we are results driven, which is why we have chosen to use a Polaris Ruby Laser for our tattoo removal treatments.
Tattoos are balls of ink that are injected into the superficial layer of the skin. These balls of ink are then stored amongst immune cells in the second layer of the skin (the dermis) where they get stuck and are too large to be carried away.
Using laser to deliver powerful, extremely short laser pulses of various wavelengths guarantees the procedure to directly target the various ink particles in a short and safe procedure. The handpieces ensure the laser energy is perfectly distributed over the spot area and delivering the energy consistently.
The light from the Laser is absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo but not the surrounding skin. A combination of light absorption and acoustic shock help to break down the ink into smaller particles that the body can dispose of naturally.
