Undergoing tattoo removal treatment at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic

Choosing to have a tattoo is always a slightly risky decision; what if it goes wrong, what if you dislike the end result, or what if you live to regret it. If you’re one of these people, you’re in good company. Victoria Beckham is the latest famous face to decide to have her body art removed, undergoing tattoo removal treatment to erase the inking from her neck recently. Pictured in the newspapers with her disappearing tattoo, the Spice Girl turned fashion designer has clearly chosen to undergo tattoo removal treatment – offered here at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic.

Undergoing tattoo removal treatment at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic

If you are seriously considering undergoing tattoo removal treatment then it’s suggested consulting with experienced cosmetic professionals, like the team here at Canterbury Skin & Laser Clinic, is a good start. We are dedicated to providing the best possible service to each and every patient. During your initial consultation you’ll be able to explain to your cosmetic expert why you wish to undergo tattoo removal treatment. A treatment plan will then be set up for you once the size and colour of the tattoo have been assessed; how long the tattoo removal treatment will take is entirely dependent on the body art you have.

Laser tattoo removal at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic is simple and safe, and the results are truly remarkable. The advanced laser technology breaks up the tattoo ink into tiny particles and in the days and weeks that follow, the body naturally disposes of these tiny fragments. In nearly all cases, several treatment sessions are required to ensure the tattoo is removed fully, with regular intervals between sessions necessary. For this reason, tattoo removal treatment doesn’t generally offer overnight results, but you will see a noticeable reduction to the tattoo pigmentation over the coming weeks.

Although non-invasive and non-surgical, tattoo removal treatment can cause some level of stinging sensation, although this is easily reduced with a local anaesthetic cream. Initially, some redness in the area is likely after the procedure, but subsides quickly. Some patients also experience a lightening or darkening of the treated area of skin, although in most cases this returns to normal between 4-6 months. The Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic team also suggest using a very high-factor sun block (SPF 50) while the skin is still sensitive but this will all be discussed during your initial consultation in clinic.

Things to remember when considering tattoo removal treatment:

  • The colours used in the tattoo, as well as its size and density, can all affect the suitability of removal treatment, as well as how long it will take, and how effective it will be.
  • It is essential to discuss this treatment with trained professionals who can steer you in the right direction to ensure the removal of your tattoo in the safest, most effective way for you.

It makes sense to trust your tattoo removal to the experts, and we have many years of experience in tattoo removal treatment.
