Unveil the beautiful blank canvas that is your skin’s natural tone with tattoo removal.

From the popularity of tattoos in the 90s sprouted a huge recent demand for tattoo removal – and we offer advanced pulsed light technologies provide what is considered one of the most effective methods in the removal of tattoos today.

A laser technology is used to target the ink of the tattoo and to apply localized pulses of light, aimed to decompose the tattoo’s pigment clusters. More specifically, this pulsed light safely passes through the skin’s outer layer and is absorbed by the ink; the light is then converted to heat, which breaks the ink down into much smaller, more manageable particles. The body’s lymphatic system then filters these particles out over several weeks’ time and, as this natural elimination occurs, the tattoo fades and eventually disappears.

While the number of treatment sessions depends on the colour, size and placement of tattoo, all profiles can be effectively and safely treated.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions does this take to see results?

Most people need 6 to 12 sessions to completely remove their tattoo. The number of treatments needed depends on the size of the tattoo, the colors used, and your skin type. Large tattoos can take 12 sessions or more. In order for the skin to heal, sessions are spaced 6-8 weeks apart.

How long do blisters last after tattoo removal?

Popping a blister can result in infection, especially if not done properly. Blistering from laser tattoo removal lasts for about 3-5 days.

Is laser tattoo removal painful?

Laser tattoo removal typically does involve some level of pain. That said, many say that it hurts less than they expected. It's a common belief that tattoo removal is excruciating, yet most patients say that the sensation of removal is comparable to having a tattoo applied. You can purchase a numbing cream at our clinic and apply it 45 minutes before your treatment for additional comfort.

What can you not do after tattoo removal?

Avoid for the next 1-2 weeks: -Direct sun exposure - hot tubs
- pool water and salt water until tattoo is healed. Keep the treated area clean and dry while it is healing. Clean the area with antibacterial soap if needed and then pat the area dry. Avoid high-pressure water hitting the treated area.

Why is my tattoo removal so itchy?

While undergoing laser tattoo removal, one side effect that's most common is that the skin where your tattoo was starts to itch. After a laser tattoo removal treatment, it's normal for your skin to itch for three to five days. It's part of the healing process.

Does tattoo removal leave scars?

Unlikely. Unless you already have an existing scar, are prone to scarring or keloids, or are reckless with your aftercare; laser tattoo removal will typically not cause scarring. In this case, the removal of the tattoo would reveal the scar, making it appear as though the scarring is a result of the removal process.

How long after laser tattoo removal can I get a cover up?

A minimum of 6-8 weeks is recommended but always make sure your removed tattoo has healed properly. Your laser tattoo removal specialist can verify this at your last treatment or during a follow-up visit. There should be no signs of blistering, scarring or bleeding.

What is the hardest tattoo colour to remove?

No single laser can remove all tattoo colors. Different dyes respond to different light wavelengths. Black and dark green are the easiest colors to remove; yellow, purple, turquoise and fluorescent dyes are hardest to fade.

Can tattoo removal make you sick?

Due to an immune response being illicit by a laser treatment, there is a possibility you could feel a few mild cold-like symptoms after your removal session. Though this is rare, if it does occur, it will not last long.
