Tattoo Removal Information
If you are wanting to fully remove or a reduction to your existing tattoo allowing for a better cover up, then we can help. Our NHS approved Luminette Q is a state-of-the-art laser provided by Lynton Lasers which can remove most types of ink and colours and has impressive results. Here at Immortal Art Studio we have took our time to make sure we have invested into one of the finest machines that is available to make sure it meets the standards what we are looking for.
Q-Switched Lasers generate a high-powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse and are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatment. The very short pulse of high-powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments
An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours.
Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form.
Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. We have invested into a state of the art Cryo-Cooler system, this device is used during the treatment to reduce any discomfort.
This depends on several factors, including the density and colour of inks and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 3 to 8 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably, and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.
