Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser Tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to fade away tattoos of various size and colour.
As an example this reasonable size tattoo looked like this after just three treatments. It was quite an old one and Trevor from Plymouth was fed up with it.

What is the treatment process?
Not all lasers are the same and not just any laser can safely remove tattoos. The Remedies clinic has one of the most advanced active medical grade Q-Switch lasers - the only type of laser that is clinically effective for tattoo removal.
Multi-coloured, professional tattoos are much more difficult to eradicate completely. Black, Blue, Red and Green colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but, Yellow and Purple pigment can be more difficult. However, the Green coloured tattoos may a require a different type of laser to remove these successfully.
How does a tattoo removal laser work?
Active Q-Switched Lasers that generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse 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.
Are there any side effects to laser tattoo removal?
Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. Change to skin texture and scarring is possible, though uncommon, and is more likely if any grazes are not allowed to heal naturally. There may be loss of the natural tanning ability in the area treated, which usually improves with time.
How many treatments are necessary?
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 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.apart
How long does each treatment take?
Treatment time varies depending upon the size of the tattoo but generally is between 10–30 minutes.
All laser treatments will require a Laser Consultation prior to the treatment.
