Laser Tattoo Removal In Leeds

At our tattoo and piercing shops in Leeds we can help with unwanted tattoos that you may want to remove for any number of reasons. Our tattoo removal technicians are specially trained to use the Q-Switched ND YAG laser system that can break down tattoo ink without damaging the top layer of the skin. We offer safe and effective methods of removing tattoos with aesthetically pleasing results.

How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

A tattoo is a layer of ink that has been applied underneath the top layer of skin. Over time a tattoo will fade and breakdown when exposed to UV light such a sun bed or sunlight. This breakdown of ink when exposed to UV light is the basic principle for tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe and produces fantastic results. The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles.

What Types of Tattoos Can be removed?

Tattoo removal success varies on the size of the tattoo, the colour and your skin type. The type of tattoo removal laser used could also have an impact on the success. Some lasers are more able to impact brighter colours, with others more successful when used on darker inks. Each tattoo is different, and it is important to have a tattoo removal consultation to discuss the process you will need to follow.

Will Tattoo Removal Leave Scars?

When a tattoo is first applied some scarring of the skin can occur but is hidden by the tattoo itself. When the tattoo is removed or lightened through laser treatment the damaged skin will then be revealed, and it is often a misconception that the removal itself has caused the scarring. Although some lasers can negatively affect the tattoo area. Tattoo removal has been perfected over the years with a number of processes, machines and light frequencies that have less of an impact on the top layer of skin.

How long does it take to remove a tattoo?

This depends on the size of the tattoo, the colours in it and the number of sessions needed. Laser tattoo removal is carried out over a number of sessions that can take weeks or even months to complete. Every tattoo removal session that you attend will break down more ink that is gradually expelled by the body, lightening the area of the skin and eventually reaching your desired outcome. The laser used could also have an impact in the number of sessions you will need to attend. Speak to your tattoo removal technician to get further information on the type of treatment and laser needed to achieve your desired results.
