Tattoo Removal

Tattoos have been around for centuries and they mean something different to everyone. Unfortunately, there are many who end up regretting their body art later on. What once seemed like a good idea can lead to psychological and career-related problems later on.

Fortunately, it is now possible to regain your confidence by safely and effectively fading and removing your unwanted body art using the latest medical-grade laser technology.

Clinica Lase specialises in laser tattoo removal and has helped countless patients reduce the appearance of their unwanted tattoos.

Laser Tattoo Removal Explained

When you are tattooed, a needle repeatedly punctures your skin so that ink can be injected into the dermis, which is the second layer of the skin.

In an effort to heal these wounds, your body sends white blood cells to the area. However, because of the size of the ink particles, the white blood cells are not able to clear the ink away, which is how a tattoo remains under your skin.

Laser tattoo removal works in conjunction with your body’s lymphatic system to remove the ink from your body. At Clinica Lase, we use the Cutera Enlighten, which is one of the most advanced laser systems available today and the best tattoo removal solution in Melbourne.

The Cutera Enlighten uses three different laser light wavelengths to target and break down the ink that’s present in the dermis. Once the laser fragments the ink, the particles are small enough for the white blood cells to them carry away.

What Tattoos Can Be Removed?

Both amateur and professional tattoos can be removed but professional body art may require more treatments to achieve your desired result.
Where laser technology was once only able to effectively remove a few different colours, the Cutera Enlighten can be used to target all colours at varying depths.

Laser tattoo removal will also work on eyebrows, lips and eyelids that have been tattooed and generally require fewer sessions than traditional body art. Particular care will be taken to protect your eyes should you want to remove permanent makeup from your face.

Clinica Lase Laser Tattoo Removal Process

The Cutera Enlighten, which uses picotechnology, safely delivers three laser light wavelengths (532, 670 and 1064) to target all tattoo colours and depths. Picotechnology has the ability to halve the number of tattoo removal treatments that you would normally require. It also reduces scarring and provides a safer, more comfortable tattoo removal experience overall.

During your free consultation at one of our clinics placed in Ballarat and Carlton, we will take you through the pros and cons of laser tattoo removal and what you can expect.

Following your treatment, your clinician will take you through the relevant aftercare instructions and provide you with a date for your next treatment.

Laser Tattoo Removal Results

There are a number of different factors that determine how long it will take to completely remove your unwanted tattoo, including:

  • The type of ink
  • The colours that were used
  • Layering of tattoos
  • Ink depth

On average, you will require at least 8 – 10 treatments to completely remove your tattoo. However, your tattoo will start to fade after just a few sessions.

Your clinician will be able to give you a better estimate of how many laser tattoo removal treatments you might require during your free consultation at our Ballarat and Carlton laser clinics.

Laser Tattoo Removal Pain Expectations

While the Cutera Enlighten does offer a more comfortable tattoo removal experience, you will still experience a sensation that it’s similar to someone repeatedly snapping a rubber band against your skin.

For most, the discomfort experienced during a tattoo removal procedure is manageable.

Laser Tattoo Removal Pre-Treatment Guidelines

To increase the success of your tattoo removal treatments and minimise side effects, here are a few pre-treatment guidelines:

  • Do not wear makeup on the day of treatment
  • No sun-tanning or self-tanners 4 weeks prior to treatment. This includes spray tans, tanning lotions, tanning beds and general sun exposure
  • Some medications or supplements may increase your risk of bruising. Your clinician will discuss these medications and supplements with you during your free consultation at Clinica Lase
  • Avoid treatments that may irritate your skin for 1-2 weeks prior to your treatment, this includes waxing and depilatories
  • Notify your clinician about any changes to your health or medications since your last treatment
  • If you have a history of herpes or cold sores, you may require an anti-viral prescription prior to your laser tattoo removal treatment

Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare Guidelines

Here are a few aftercare guidelines that will help protect your skin after your tattoo removal treatment.

  • Avoid sun exposure for 2 – 4 weeks after your treatment and always apply a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen before going outside
  • Refrain from using any products that might irritate the skin, this includes products that contain retinol, tretinoin, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids and astringents. Wait until the skin has fully healed and all crusting has resolved before applying additional products to the skin

Laser Tattoo Removal Price

The cost of your laser tattoo removal treatment plan will be discussed during your free consultation at Clinica Lase once your clinician has examined the tattoo that needs to be treated.

Crystal shares her personal skin concerns, what she does to manage them and the products she relies on:⠀
⠀
“I have always taken great care of my skin not only by topical products and in-clinic treatments but also by nourishing my body with very healthy and nutritious meals as well as internal health products to support my gut which in turn helps my skin function much more effectively. Having turned 35 I can honestly say that I am really happy in the skin I am in.⠀
The concerns I address with my skin are slowing the aging process down, keeping my skin well hydrated (as it becomes like a facial dandruff nightmare when I am stressed), and keeping my melasma (hormonal pigmentation) at bay. ⠀
My absolute go to treatment is Pico genesis paired with laser genesis as it addresses my redness, pigmentation, fine lines and improves the texture of my skin.⠀
