Laser tattoo removal is simply the best option to remove tattoos – most of our clients experience optimal results after 6-12 sessions.

The medical-grade laser works by producing short pulses of intense light that are targeted at the tattoo. These pulses pass straight through to the pigment, leaving the top layers of skin unharmed.

When the light is absorbed, the ink molecules are broken down, allowing them to fragment into small particles and be absorbed into the bloodstream. The body then safely and naturally flushes these out of your system, causing the ink to disappear.

The procedure has been proven to be both safe and effective, with researchers having determined which wavelengths of light are most effective at removing ink without damaging surrounding skin.

Can all tattoos be removed?

While the majority of tattoos can be successfully removed or their appearance lessened, there are a small percent that may not respond to laser tattoo removal. Our medical-grade lasers have the ability to remove tattoos containing black, red, yellow and green inks, however, removal of ink colours including pink and blue may not be as effective. We can advise you on your suitability and determine if your tattoo is eligible for removal during our initial consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

Most of our clients undertake an average of six to twelve treatments to achieve optimal results. While some fading may be apparent after only several sessions, more treatments are recommended to reach 80% removal of the unwanted tattoo. Factors that contribute to how many treatments are required and if they will be effective include:

  • The layering of tattoos
  • The type of ink used
  • The presence of particular colours in the tattoo that do not respond well to removal, such as pinks, purples and light blues
  • If the tattoo is new, it retains a large amount of ink
How often can I have a treatment?

Treatments may be performed approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart, giving the area sufficient time to heal between sessions. This minimises the chances of scarring and other complications.

Does it hurt?

While medical-grade Q-Switched laser treatments can cause discomfort, this is usually only minor, and is a similar sensation to a rubber band snapping on your skin. At Courtenay Cosmetic Clinic, we care about providing the utmost comfort, which is why we offer an efficient numbing cream that helps to reduce the sensation. We also utilise a specialised cooling machine to ensure the experience is as efficient and pain-free as possible.

Are there any side effects?

Some side effects are possible with laser tattoo removal, though these are usually minor and do not last long. The most common of side effects for medical-grade Q-Switch laser tattoo removal include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Very minor blistering

These temporary side effects generally last less than a week, and are closely monitored by our team of medically trained clinicians and registered nurses.

Can the area be re-tattooed?

Absolutely Once the treated area has fully healed, it’s perfectly fine for the skin to be re-tattooed.
