The laser tattoo removal process involves a series of laser sessions, each of which breaks down the ink particles and allows your body to naturally absorb and flush away these fragments. The treatment is rarely available on the NHS, but the procedure is safe and effective if it’s carried out by a qualified practitioner. You should check that anyone carrying out your treatments is registered with a government-approved register to prove they meet set standards of training, skill and insurance.

You may experience some redness, swelling or blistering in the treated area after the procedure but these are normal signs that your skin is healing. It is important to keep the treated area covered and out of direct sunlight, for at least 48 hours following each session. It is also recommended to massage Bio-Oil (a scar softening product) into the area for a couple of minutes daily.
If you’re considering removing an unwanted tattoo, the best choice is to visit a clinic that uses PicoSure, the world’s most advanced tattoo removal laser. PicoSure delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin, causing a change in pressure that shatters the tattoo pigment into tiny dust-like particles that your body can easily absorb and eliminate.
The result is a faster, more effective and less painful tattoo removal. It is also able to remove darker inks, such as blues and greens, more effectively than older laser machines. This is thanks to Boost, which amplifies the tattoo removal laser’s PressureWave TM technology to levels never before seen.
