It’s very common for some people to regret having a tattoo for all sorts of reasons. Over time tattoos can fade, lose their shape or just generally lose their appeal. Alternatively just fading down an existing tattoo so that a new tattoo can be applied over the old one is a popular option for some patients.

Using lasers to remove tattoos is a proven solution with over 20 years of evidence to demonstrate its effectiveness. At Brigstock Skin and Laser Centres we only use very experienced Clinical Technicians for this type of procedure. Different types of laser machine are required for different types of tattoo pigments and by using a combination of machines where required results can be spectacular.

How do lasers remove tattoos?

The treatment does cause some discomfort, but as sessions normally only last from 5 minutes to an hour most patients find that it is tolerable. For those patients who find it too uncomfortable a topical aesthetic cream can be applied to the treatment area.

Will the treatment leave a scar?

The chances of scarring are minimal and our experienced technicians have performed countless procedures and achieved spectacular results.  In the unlikely event that changes in skin texture do occur, Brigstock Skin and Laser is able to offer other scar reduction treatments to ensure you achieve the desired result. Immediately after treatment it is normal for the treated area to appear paler although skin tone will begin to appear once your treatment ends.

Is it painful?

The treatment does cause some discomfort, but as sessions normally only last from 5 minutes to an hour most patients find that it is tolerable. For those patients who find it too uncomfortable a topical aesthetic cream can be applied to the treatment area.

Does it work for all skin types?

Laser tattoo removal is suitable for all skin types although darker skin tones may require more treatment sessions. The use of NdYAG lasers on darker skin reduces the risk of any changes in skin tone.
