How effective is TATTOO removal?
Does it hurt?
You can expect some mild discomfort during the treatment and up to 48 hours after.
If you would like to apply a numbing agent prior to treatment you are able to do so. We apply a cooling CyroAir during the session which will act as a slight anaesthetic to ensure the removal is more tolerable.
Full after care is provided to ensure the area is kept comfortable.
HOW LONG BETWEEN TREATMENTS?
A minimum of 6 weeks allows time for the skin to heal and the bodies immune system to flush it away and 8 weeks for darker skin types.
Having the treatments too close together can cause damage to the skin.
Sessions can be left any time between 6 and 12 weeks for best results, believe it or not, the longer you wait, the better.
