What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?
The Fylde Clinic offer Laser Tattoo removal services from their clinic in Thornton-Cleveleys and provide their services to all residents of the Fylde Coast and Beyond, including Blackpool, Poulton-le-Fylde, Lytham St Annes, Kirkham and Preston. All our treatments are performed by highly trained, experienced Doctors and Nurses so you’re in safe hands.
Q-Switched Lasers are considered by dermatologists to be the most effective, safe and reliable way to remove unwanted multi-coloured tattoos with consistent predictable results.
Active Q-Switched Lasers that generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatment. The very short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.
Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure
The skin will be cleaned and then the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible ‘clicking’ noise is often heard as the ink particles shatter. After treatment, a soothing lotion and a light dressing may be applied. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.
Treatment time varies depending upon the size of the tattoo but generally is between 10 – 30 minutes
This depends on several factors, including the density and colour of inks and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.
