Many people often opt to get a new Tattoo but regret the decision later on in life, at Aesthetics of Liverpool we are able to offer Tattoo Removal using effective Laser Treatment.
Results and the number of treatments needed varies from client to client, on average a course of 6-10 treatments is enough to remove the Tattoo.
Whilst Tattoos where once considered a permanent feature on the body it has now become possible to remove them, either fully or partially. A recent study showed 1 in 7 people who have a tattoo regret getting one. Whilst a lot of people have no regrets many clients often regret their choice of design, where too young when they made the initial decision,or simply just don’t like it anymore. Fortunately Laser Tattoo removal is now available and with a course of treatment can remove the design completely.
The procedure can be slightly uncomfortable and cause a stinging sensation. Though a Local Anaesthetic can be applied to reduce this. Certain parts of the body can be more sensitive to others such as the ankles, or elbows. However with each treatment the Tattoo will fade and the discomfort felt will also reduce.
• A stinging or burning sensation through the procedure.
• A feel if heat during the procedure, the treated are with continue to feel hot for some time after treatment.
• During treatments most patients will experience small white dots which appear on the the skin for several minutes after each laser has been applied.
• Post Treatment minor bleeding may occur , the skin may be red and swelling may be visible, and skin will feel tender to touch, this usually subsides after a few days.
• Oozing and Blistering is also common,once they have healed the skin over the Tattoo will look shiny for a number of weeks.
• It is vital that skin is well cared for post treatment.
• The treated area needs to be considered as a minor burn, it should not be picked at, and blisters should not be popped.
• There is risk of infection if the treatment area is not properly cleaned and looked after.
• Hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin) in particular on people with darker skin types. This condition usually resolves of its own accord though your practitioner can recommend appropriate products to even out disrupted skin tone.
• Hypopigmentation (patches of pale colour loss). The Laser Treatment will be targeting the colour of the Tattoo Ink however it can also effect the natural skin pigment or melanin. This can leave the treated area appearing somewhat ‘bleached’. Skin may recover, but this process can take months, sometimes even years and may never match exactly with the surrounding area. The risk of this happening is increased with darker skin tones.
• The risk of scarring is low as the lasers do not heat up the surrounding tissue to a great degree therefore the risk of scarring is considered to be very low. In rare cases scarring can occur, this is generally with those who have a history of scarring ,as well as poor healing at the treatment site through the patient picking blisters and scabs.
