Do you have a tattoo you regret? Something you found cute or amusing when you were younger that just no longer suits your look, or an ex-partner’s name you’d rather not have under your skin? Getting rid of that old tattoo is now easier than ever thanks to the technology at our laser tattoo removal clinic between Hatfield and Potters Bar.
Laser tattoo removal techniques have evolved significantly in recent years, with options being more effective and less painful than before. At the BeauSynergy laser tattoo removal clinic in Hertfordshire, close to north London, we use the powerful ND Yag laser, which is one of the most reliable and well-proven machines for tattoo removal.
If you want to part ways with some old ink, we recommend this effective and safe treatment for zapping tattoos.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
The ND Yag at our laser clinic uses light-based wavelengths to target tattoo ink pigment and break it down under your skin. The tattoo fragments are then absorbed by your body and flushed out of your system through lymphatic drainage. This high-tech process ultimately leads to the fading and disappearance of that old tattoo!
What to Consider Before Laser Tattoo Removal
There are a few factors worth noting before you begin treatments. While it is a safe and minimally invasive procedure, some people may need to take precautionary measures. You should also know what to expect from tattoo removal treatment beforehand and what the result is likely to be.
The following are factors that can impact how treatment at our laser removal clinic will go:
- Type of tattoo
- Skin type/pigmentation
- Exposure to sun
- Previous laser therapy treatments
- Gold therapy treatments
- Herpes-related infection
- Tendency to develop keloid scars
If any of these factors relate to you, make sure to let our laser specialists know before you have your treatment at the laser tattoo removal clinic.
It is important to know that you will likely require 7 to 10 treatments spaced out over a number of months to say “bye” to that tattoo. Whether it takes more or less to remove it will depend on:
- Skin type
- Location of tattoo
- Tattoo colour
- Tattoo age
- Amount of ink used
- Scarring from tattoo
- Tattoo layering (whether it’s already a cover up)
Some traces of your tattoo may still be visible after a few treatments but it will continue to fade to a certain degree over a number of months. However, many people find that laser tattoo removal in North London is an ideal option if what you’re really after is a cover up tattoo.
Side Effects of Tattoo Removal
Initially after you’re treated at our laser removal clinic, you can expect to experience the following in a minimal way:
- Light bleeding
Treatment by our expert staff will help minimise these side effects, but they should be expected to a certain extent.
Permanent Side Effects
When done properly, zapping that tattoo will have very minimal long term effects. That being said, the following are a possibility to keep in mind:
- Long term scarring
- Hyper or hyper-pigmentation issues
- Colour change of tattoo pigment
- Skin texture changes
