Tattoo Removal – Welcome To The Laser Room
How Does Tattoo Removal Work ?
The laser that is used for tattoo removal rapidly delivers a light beam to the skin in order to remove unwanted tattoos. The laser is design to be focus on the tattoo ink colour over the lighter skin colour. When the light beam hits the ink, it breaks apart the tattoo colour into tiny particles. These particles become invivisble to the naked eye and over time absorbed and removed by the body’s natural filtration system.
The Laser Room (located at the back of Teddy’s Barber Shop & Laser Clinic) has been equipped with tattoo removals latest technology, The Ultralase Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser – specially designed for tattoo removal. The high-powered laser minimises damage that could be caused by overheating the surrounding skin and lowers chance of scarring and the discomfort felt in the removal process is reduced.

Tattoo Removal Process

What types of tattoos react best to laser removal?
Its now possible to remove or at least significantly lighten most tattoos with black, blue and red tattoos the easiest to remove. Colours such as aqua, green and yellow can be resistant and only partially fade. White tattoos reflect lasers so do not respond to laser treatment.
How long after being tattooed can removal commence?
As soon as the skin has completely healed – although it may appear healed within a week or two, a period of six weeks is advised.
Can the area be re-tattooed?
Yes – Whether you have had complete removal, partial or just lightening, the area can be re-tattooed. This is often the wish of clients who are looking to replace an existing tattoo with a new design so first have laser tattoo removal treatments to make it possible.
Will the tattoo completely disappear?
In many cases there will be 100% elimination of the tattoo but 95% fading is considered a good result. Variables such as colour, ink type and tattoo depth will create different outcomes. Your tattoo removal specialist can discuss likely outcomes during your first consultation.
