A laser that is used for tattoo removal is a highly focused laser that rapidly delivers a beam of light to the skin for the purposes of removing unwanted tattoos. The laser is attracted by darker colours found in the ink of the tattoo in preference to the lighter colour of the skin. When the beam of the laser strikes the ink in a tattoo it shatters the ink into very fine particles. These particles are then no longer visible to the eye and become small enough to be absorbed and removed by the body’s own natural filtration (lymphatic) system.
The Ultralase Q-Switched Nd YAG Laser is specially designed for the purpose of tattoo removal. This laser allows very high-powered laser light to be delivered to the skin over a fraction of a second. This minimises any damage that could be caused by overheating the surrounding skin and hence any chance of scarring is greatly reduced.
Generally, treatments are quick and clients experience only minimal discomfort. The older the tattoo, the more treatments may be necessary and different colours and more intricate designs may also require additional treatments.
Our clinic offers treatments with the Ultralase Q Switched Nd YAG Laser which can remove tattoos containing black, dark and light blue, green and red pigments within 6-12 sessions based on the quality of the tattoo. By matching the colour of the laser to the colour of the unwanted tattoo ink,
multi-coloured professional tattoos, as well as single colour amateur tattoos, can be removed safely and effectively.
Will my tattoo completely clear?
In many cases, there will be a 100% clearance of the tattoo. On average, 95% fading is considered a good result. The result depends upon the colour and type of ink used as well as the depth of penetration of the ink in the skin. Your therapist can discuss with you the likeliness of success during your initial consultation.
At Tahu Skin Clinic we have restructured the way we charge for tattoo removal, capping our prices making it more affordable than ever to get rid of your unwanted body ink. The cost of laser tattoo removal sessions has reduced dramatically in recent years.
Our pricing structure is transparent and provides you with savings when compared to the traditional pricing that charges by the size of your tattoo.
Pricing ranges from $110 (2x2cm) to $400(a4 size) per session.
Due to client safety and the body’s natural wound healing response, there are limits on the overall size of the tattoo that can be treated per session. Please get in contact for further information and to obtain an estimate
