Laser Tattoo Removal
The Canterbury Skin and laser Clinic, Kent uses a Q switched Nd:YAG laser for Tattoo Removal in Kent. The laser can produce several wavelengths to target a range of tattoo pigments. Black is the easiest pigment to remove. Some coloured pigments respond well to laser tattoo removal, green does not always respond well.
Professional tattoos typically require 6 or more treatments, whereas amateur or traumatic blue-black tattoos may only need 1 to 2 sessions. Coloured tattoos can take many more sessions.
Studies have shown that 85% of amateur tattoos can be completely removed after just three treatment sessions.
Professional tattoos take longer with 70% removed by 6 treatments. More treatment sessions in both tattoo types will result in further clearances.
Tattoo Removal treatments are usually scheduled at 6 to 8 week intervals. Each laser pulse has been likened to that of an elastic band hitting the skin.
Immediately after treatment, there may be swelling, bruising or crusting and scabbing, which can last up to 2 weeks. Some of the tattoo pigment is lost during this scabbing process.
The consultation is FREE, patch test to test your skin’s suitability for laser tattoo removal is £50. Treatment starts at £80.
