New High Power “Cool Chilled” Laser Tattoo Removal

A tattoo may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but many regret the decision later on in life. If this is the case then laser treatment is the most effective option for removing your tattoo.

Using new high power cooled lasers, laser tattoo removal can now be fast & effective yet gentle on your skin.

At Epilight New Skin Clinic we have invested in what is regarded as the industry gold standard laser for tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal

No single type laser can remove all types and colours of tattoo ink, that is why, unlike most clinics, we have a range of different lasers for tattoo removal that allow us to remove ALL COLOURS.

The latest High Power Q-switched 1064 Nd:Yag for removal of dark blue, black, grey and white ink.
The latest High Power Q-switched 532 KTP for red, purple, orange, green and brown ink.

As tattoo ink particles are too big for the body’s immune system to break down, the laser breaks the ink into smaller particles allowing the body to dispose of them naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the new high power laser better?

Our new Q Switch module operates with a significantly higher power output than the majority of other medical laser devices. Delivering double the amount of energy by way of multiple pulses.

Unlike lasers that operate from single pulse devices, the Q Switch module achieves high peak power along with a maximum spot size, providing deep penetration for fast, safe and effective tattoo removal.

• Safer and more accurate treatment
• Minimal downtime
• Fast, efficient removal

How does laser tattoo removal work?

A very short pulse of high power laser light is passed through the skin to shatter the tattoo ink particles.

As tattoo ink particles are too big for the body’s immune system to break down, the laser breaks them into smaller particles – the body is then able to remove these particles and dispose of them naturally.

How many treatments are required to remove a tattoo?

It depends on what you want - just a cover up or to have the tattoo removed completely.

The number of treatments depends on many factors. The ink used, the colour, depth, how old it is and the number of layers of ink which have been tattooed. Most amateur and professional tattoos require 6-12 treatment sessions at monthly or bi-monthly intervals.

What are the costs likely to be?

The cost of each treatment session is entirely dependent on the size as well as the colour of your tattoo.

The total cost of tattoo removal is determined by the number of treatments that you would require – this number various considerably from patient to patient.

Prices start from £30 per session for a small tattoo and range to £300 for half a sleeve. Discounts apply for courses of treatment.

Do all tattoos respond to treatment?

In most cases, we are able to remove all or most of the tattoo.

No one laser can remove all types and colours of tattoo ink – which is why we use different types of lasers. Results can vary, especially on red and green inks which may take more treatments and a higher energy laser.

How long does it take and does it hurt?

A typical treatment session will last between 5 – 40 minutes, this is entirely dependent on the size of the tattoo.

Lasers do cause slight discomfort during the treatment – some patients have described this feeling as similar to being ‘snapped’ with a rubber band, while some patients liken the sensation to the pain of getting a tattoo.

Certain areas are more sensitive than others, these areas include the ankles and the shoulder blades. As the treatment progresses and the tattoo ink fades, the discomfort felt during treatment also reduces.

Thanks to our special cool chilled lasers, treatment is not too uncomfortable.

Are there any after-effects following treatment?

Immediately post treatment, the tattoo will look frosted or white, there may also be redness and swelling around the treated area.

This redness is quite similar to the sensation of sunburn and will settle after a few days. It is also quite normal to blister following this treatment, but this does not indicate potential scarring. Blistering will not need treatment, and it will generally harden and clear within a few days. Sometimes pin prick bleeding and scabbing may occur.

You should not expose the treated area to any strong sunlight between your sessions without use of a sunblock (SPF 30–50 is recommended). The treatment area should be kept clean and dry.

Does the treatment scar?

At Epilight New Skin Clinics we use Q-Switched lasers which deliver high power energy to break up the tattoo pigment ink particles with a very short pulse duration (billionths of a second!).

This means that the very high energy shatters the ink but is only on the skin for a very short time, there is generally no lasting damage to the skin. Occasionally, changes in skin texture or colour may occur. Hyper pigmentation or hypo-pigmentation may occur in some cases and this usually returns to normal in time. However in some rare cases, this could be permanent.

Will the skin be normal when the treatment is finished?

The energy from the lasers is absorbed by the skin pigment as well as tattoo ink. Patients with darker skin may notice that there is some lightening of the skin (depigmentation). This can return to normal in 6-12 months.

At Epilight New Skin Clinics, we generally limit treatment for darker skinned patients to the NdYAG laser, as the there is a lower risk of pigment change. Those patients who have a history of keloid scarring may not be suitable for treatment.
