Don’t live with tattoo regret any more, Tattoo Removal is the solution. Tattoos can mean many things and the reason we get one can be a personal thing to remember someone by or it was a good idea at the time. Whatever the reason if it is no longer a much loved part of your body than book in for a complimentary consultation to see what can be done.


Laser tattoo removal is one of the safest ways to remove unwanted tattoos or to lighten them. It works by breaking up the pigment in the skin, similar to when you smash a rock with a hammer. When the pigment has been broken up it resembles tiny fragments of pigment, the lymph system then will help to eliminate the debris in the skin.


  • Avoid heat- hot tubs, saunas, etc
  • Avoid any rubbing or tight clothing around the area
  • Do not scratch or pick at the scabs or crusting that may occur
  • Apply the post treatment gel at least 3 times a day – this is given after the treatment
  • A full after care guide is given after the treatment

Yes it does hurt, there is no other way to say it, the treatment is not pleasant. However, we use cryo jet to keep the area cool to make it as bearable as possible.
Depending on the size of the tattoo the price can range from $100 – $900 per treatment. A good comparison is a standard business card size equals $100.
As a rough guide it will take between 3-8 treatments at 4-8 week intervals. However, depending on the colour of the tattoo and how long it has been there will determine if it will completely go or a light shadow may appear.
It is best to avoid anything that is going to heat the body up. This can be saunas & spas, gym workout and hot showers. You will also need to avoid rubbing at the area and tight clothing.
Yes all colours can be treated, however, yellow and orange colours can be more tricky to treat and sometimes will look like a light shadow on the skin.
For an effective treatment the tattoo should frost up (go white) but should only last for 15mins post treatment. Frosting will be more prominent on the first treatment as the pigment is at it’s darkest. Oedema (swelling) is normal straight after and can be present at least 3 days after treatment.

Once the ink has been shattered, the inflammatory begins, macrophages start to invade the area and take the shattered particles away. Caution: it is recommended to not treat to much of a tattoo at the one time as the immune system will not be able to cope to well.
The tattoo should be treated just like a wound to the skin. A dressing should be applied straight away and any friction or pressure should be avoided. Blisters can occur 2-3 days post treatment if this occurs avoid picking or popping the blister to avoid any scarring.
