Can I actually have my tattoo removed?
Most, if not all tattoos can now be removed with modern laser technology. Black ink tattoos are the most simple to remove, as you're only dealing with a single colour of the pigment. Coloured tattoos are also becoming easier & easier to remove with advancements in the equipment our practitioners use. The Harmony XL Pro machine we have at the Hampton Clinic makes use of different wavelengths. This enables the machine to break down a range of ink colours, helping to remove & reduce even the most stubborn tattoos.
A chat with our consultants/practitioners will decide whether or not your tattoo is suited for removal. They will be able to give you a general idea of how many treatments you have to go through to remove your tattoo.
Is tattoo removal dangerous?
With the proper care, attention & precautions taken, laser tattoo removal is perfectly safe. Due to the nature of this treatment, it has to go through stringent safety tests to ensure that the clients that are partaking in the treatment are safe. The idea of laser radiation may also worry you, however the lasers used are completly safe. The type of lasers used emit non-ionizing radiation which carries no risk of cancer or abnormal cell growth. This means that the lasers won't have a chance of mutating cells that may cause other health complications.
Will tattoo removal scar my skin?
The lasers used in our tattoo removal treatment are powerful enough to break down the pigment used in tattoo ink, but not strong enough to harm the dermis/epidermis. The laser pulses are timed to keep the dermis cool so that it won't damage it irreperably. As long as you're working with an experienced practitioner, the equipment won't be used to the point where your skin will be scarred.
How does the laser actually remove my tattoo?
The actual process of tattoo laser removal might be a mystery to a lot of people. The laser pulses its beam into the tattoo which ends up breaking the pigment. The pulse paired with the high intensity of the laser causes the pigment in the tattoo to break apart. The pigment particles are blasted & broken down to the point they're small enough to be drawn away & flushed out of the body, leaving your dermis free of pigment.
