LASER TATTOO REMOVAL AT INK + OILS TATTOO SHOP, TAMWORTH
How does laser tattoo removal work?
The energy from the laser breaks down the tattoo ink into tiny fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed out of the body.
How much does it cost?
The cost of removing a tattoo varies, depending on its size and the number of sessions required.
Prices start from as little as £30 and consultations at INK + OILS Tamworth are completely free
You should not have a tattoo removed if you:
- are pregnant – there's a small risk to your baby
- have a suntan or fake tan – wait for it to fade
Is laser tattoo removal safe?
Having a tattoo removed is totally safe if it's done by an experienced and suitably qualified practitioner.
Our laser tattoo removal technician has all relevant qualifications, insurance and has completed high standard industry training which are available inside our Tamworth shop for the public to see.
What does tattoo removal process involve?
You'll need to shave the area of skin before the appointment.
On the day, you'll be given special goggles for your eyes protection.
A handheld device will be pressed on your skin to trigger a laser. Some people say this feels like an elastic band pinging against your skin.
The session will take about 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your tattoo.
The tattoo should become lighter with each treatment.
A gel is used to cool and soothe your skin, and it might be covered with a dressing afterwards.
Afterward your treatment
Your skin may be red with a raised rash for a short while after laser tattoo removal treatment. Holding an ice pack to your skin may help. Try a packet of frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel if an ice pack is unavailable to you.
You may have some slight bleeding before your skin scab forms. Use aloe vera gel or Vaseline to help it heal.
Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 1 week after laser tattoo removal treatment. Cover the area with clothing and use a sunscreen with at least SPF30, we recommend SPF50.
You should avoid:
- picking or scratching the scab
- using soap or perfumed products on the area for the first 48 hours
- strenuous physical activities for a couple of days
- swimming and saunas until the scab has dropped off (they may slow the healing process)
Are there any risks?
Like everything in life their are always a slight risk/ possibility: The possible risks are:
- some colours not completely fading – yellow, green and purple ink requires more sessions to fade than black, blue and red
- a small chance your skin may become temporarily darker or paler than the surrounding skin
- a slight chance of permanent scarring (3 in 100 people develop a scar)
