How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the size of you tattoo, each session takes between 10 and 40 minutes.
How long do the results last?
Laser tattoo removal gives permanent results.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure can be uncomfortable, so local anaesthetic gel is normally used in the area.
How many sessions will I need?
This is very dependent on the condition of your skin, size and colours used in the tattoo. Most clients find that between 5-12 sessions are sufficient.
Will I be left with a scar?
No, laser tattoo removal will not scar you.
Can multi-coloured tattoos be removed?
Yes, all tattoo colours can be removed. Black, blue and red tattoos are the easiest to remove. White, yellow, pink and purple are more difficult to remove. Green tattoos can be very difficult to remove and may require extra sessions.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). Your skin may be quite red for a few days after the treatment, you should consider this if you’re planning a trip or special day.

Yes, there are alternative acne treatments, however laser is a proven technique to minimize the severity and frequency of outbreaks.

Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
