laser tattoo removal londonTattoos have become quite commonplace now in the UK, enabling many adults to express themselves through permanent markings.

However, a tattoo is ‘for life’ and it is quite common to come to regret the decision to have a specific tattoo, so now the tattoo removal industry is growing very fast in the UK as legions of clients seek to have their tattoos removed.

Laser Tattoo Removal

The latest generation of skin laser machines mean that tattoo removal is now more widely available in exclusive clinics and salons. Laser tattoo removal uses laser energy to break down the permanent ink in the tattoo into tiny fragments. These tiny particles can then be absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed out of the body.

Tattoo removal is not a ‘quick fix’, it takes a course of treatment for full results to develop. However, it is effective.

Early lasers had a reputation for being slow and uncomfortable (or even painful) for the patient, but newer technology is faster and involves less discomfort.

Aftercare Advice

What to Expect

  • After treatment, skin may become red, possibly with a raised rash. Using an ice pack on the skin can be very helpful in relieving the discomfort and also calming the skin down
  • Skin is very sensitive to the sun after treatment. Always use a high protection sunscreen and avoid sun exposure (including sun beds) for at least a week afterwards
  • It can be helpful to use aloe vera gel or Vaseline if there is any blistering or scab formation
  • As the skin will be sensitive to irritants, avoid soap or perfumed products on the area for the first 48 hours
  • Avoid strenuous activities and saunas for a couple of days, as excessive body heat can slow down the healing process
  • Avoid swimming and saunas while there is any scabbing
