Laser Tattoo Removal In London
Tattoo removal is any method of removing a tattoo from the skin. There is an extensive range of tattoo removal methods out there including dermabrasion, TCA (acid), excision and of course laser, of which there are various types.
Laser tattoo removal works by pulsing laser light into the tattoo which shatters the ink into tiny pieces, the body spots these particles as a foreign substance and removes the minute ink particles using the natural detoxification processes. Laser tattoo removal does not damage the skin, like excision, dermabrasion and acid.
Traditional common lasers known as Q-switched lasers have been around for a while but the newer PicoSure and PicoWay lasers are a breakthrough in laser tattoo removal, allowing all tattoos to be removed. Q-switch lasers are precise and intense, the tattoo pigments fragment instantly and the tissue surrounding it is spared. We provide all three machines in our three clinics: PicoWay in West London Clinic, PicoWay and PicoSure in Peek House Clinic, and the Revlite Q-Switch in Fenchurch Street.
Some of the benefits of Q-Switch Revlite laser tattoo removal:
- Cheaper than PicoWay and PicoSure
- Effective on black, red and orange inks
- Suitable on all skin types especially darker skin types
Conventional Q-switched tattoo removal lasers remove a tattoo successfully, gaps between treatments need to be from six weeks to two months apart, and it usually takes anything from 10-20 treatments to fully remove a tattoo. This all depends on the size, the type of ink that has been used and the length of time between your sessions. Additionally, the RevLite laser produces short pulse widths of energy, limiting the skin’s exposure to heat making the treatments safe and fast.
