TATTOO REMOVAL GLOUCESTER

Tattoos are increasingly common…

but they can sometimes lead to more regrets than you’d expect.

A recent study found that about 50% of adults older than 40 with tattoos want them removed.

ProSkin Clinic & Health UK’s Laser Tattoo removal safely removes unwanted Tattoos, using our Q Switch Technology.

 

Our Q-switched laser is the current treatment of choice because it has the ability to target small granules of ink, and has a lower risk of scarring when compared to the long-pulsed laser or IPL systems.

How effective is TATTOO removal?

Our Q Switch YAG laser is suitable for all skin types. It works below the surface of the skin, breaking down tattoo pigments small enough for the body to expel using its own metabolic response, meaning minimal scarring and skin discolouration. It is most effective on black/blue tattoos that have been present for a minimum of a year.

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.
