Tattoo Removal

Decorative tattooing in humans can be traced back thousands of years, so can the desire to remove them. Over time the colours may fade and skin looses its youthful elasticity, tattoos may become defacements rather than decorations. We now provide a safe and effective way of removing tattoos.


How does the Q-Switched laser work?

Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser delivers light quickly in billionths of a second and at very high energy. These pulses are absorbed by the tattoo, breaking it into pigment particles small enough for removal by the body.


Is it safe?

Q-switched laser technology offers high efficiency at very low risk. It enables effective tattoo removal with little chance of side effects.


What kind of tattoos can be treated?

All types of tattoos can be removed with little or no scarring. Professional and amateur tattoos, as well as traumatic tattoos. The Q-switch can also remove cosmetic tattoos such as eye or lip liner.


Can the Q-Swtiched laser remove all colour tattoos?

The Q-switch is especially suited to the removal of dark blue and black inks.


How many treatments are necessary?

In determining the number of treatments necessary, we will consider such factors as tattoo location, patients age and skin type.
