The Sun

Many people have tattoos that they regret and want them removed. The Sun explores 3 options for dealing with unwanted tattoos.

1. Laser Tattoo Removal

The Sun describes laser tattoo removal treatment as the best option:

“Laser tattoo removal is the most recommended and most popular method of permanent tattoo removal.

“It works by breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo, which are then removed by the immune system.

“How many sessions you’ll need depends on the size of the tattoo and the colour – as some. generally lighter-coloured, inks are more difficult to remove than others. Usually, results won’t be absolutely immediate – with fading occurring gradually over the 2 month healing period.”

Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon offer laser tattoos removal using advanced Harmony XL Pro:

  • Can achieve excellent results over a course of treatment
  • Safe system with minimal risk of scarring/pigmentation problems
  • Even works on dark pigments (black/blue/green/purple)

Their Beauty Therapists are fully trained and qualified to use the powerful technology for safe and effective treatment.

2. Make Up

Heavy-duty concealers are a temporary option for hiding unwanted tattoos.

The Sun advises:

“The trick is to use a thicker, lighter-coloured concealer, then cover with a shade of foundation that matches your skin and set with powder for a natural look.”

Of course, these are of short term benefit and need to be applied daily.

3. Surgery

A drastic option which is certainly not for all tattoos. The Sun explains:

Depending on the size of your tattoo, surgery to cut out the inked section of skin could be an option. Surgery is a quicker option – and sometimes gives good results as the scar fades. However, it can also cause unsightly scarring, and if the incisions made aren’t deep enough the tattoo may not be totally removed. So, surgical removal isn’t suitable for all types of tattoo, meaning it’s crucial to seek a detailed consultation before making a decision.”
