Tattoo Removal and Pigmentation

Tattoo removal and pigmentation treatments that we currently offer

Tattoo Removal and Pigmentation

 

The ND:Yag Q-Switched laser is the only effective treatment for removing tattoos and benign pigmented lesions without scarring. During tattoo/pigment removal photons of light are selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink or pigmentation (melanin). This sudden increase in temperature causes the ink/pigmentation structure to shatter. The body's own immune system removes the shattered pigment.

Why chose Amirii Laser Clinic?

Experience, expertise and the very best equipment. Our training is second to none, and we work closely to a leading laser centre to ensure our technicians are kept up to date in all areas. All of our customers can be reassured that they are in the very best hands.

How many treatments will I need?

This varies person by person. Amateur tattoos can usually be removed in 3-4 treatments with professional tattoos taking 6- 12 treatments. While pigmentation can take anything from 3-8 treatments.

Does it hurt?

Tattoo removal is uncomfortable, as you know they are uncomfortable to have! To ensure client comfort we use a “chiller” machine that blows cold air onto the area being treated to ensure little discomfort is felt. We can advise you on how to use a numbing cream for this treatment. Pigmentation removal is relatively painless and is usually comfortable with only the chiller.

How often will I need to come for treatment?

Every 4 - 8 weeks or until the skin is completely healed.

What happens after the tattoo/pigmentation removal treatment?

Directly after treatment there will be some redness, the skin will appear to have white bubbles, and there will be a small amount of swelling. We will apply antiseptic cream and a dressing before you leave the clinic. We advise applying the cream twice per day for the 7 days following treatment. We will supply you with the cream. We also advise the following:

  • No hot baths or showers – tepid only
  • No heat treatments i.e. saunas and steam rooms
  • No deodorant, perfumes or scented body lotions/creams
  • No swimming or Jacuzzis
  • No steam ironing or cooking over boiling saucepans
  • Do not scratch, pic, or rub the treated area
  • Do not wear tight or restrictive clothes over the area treated for 48 hour
  • Apply the supplied anti biotic cream x2 per day for 7 days

How should I prepare for treatment?

  • Do not use products containing retinol or strong AHA fruit acids prior to or during your tattoo removal treatment
  • Avoid swimming in strong chlorinated water immediately before treatment
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing when attending the treatment
  • Physical sunblock should be worn at all times on areas visible to sunlight (SPF 30)
  • Avoid sun exposure and sun beds for 4 weeks before treatment
  • Do not use fake tanning products for two weeks prior to treatments including spray tanning and tinted moisturisers
  • If the tattoo/pigmentation is in a hairy area please shave the day before treatment

How will my tattoo look directly after treatment?

Immediately after treatment your tattoo will look red, raised, swollen with white bubbles where the pigment has been shattered. This can last up to a week and can be followed by bruising. It is extremely important that you follow the after-care advice given by your practitioner.

After Treatment

How will my pigmentation look directly after treatment?

Immediately after treatment your pigmentation will look 'frosted', be slightly swollen and red. The swelling can last up to 24 hours. The pigmentation will then scab over, it is extremely important not to pick or scratch the area as this could cause damage to the underlying new skin.
