ABSOLUTELY NOT. The laser tattoo removal treatment does not ‘burn’ the skin or the tattoo to effect removal. Disappear Ink utilises the world’s best laser system for laser tattoo removal, the Quanta Systemens Discovery PICO Laser System. The laser energy actually shatters the ink particles in the tattoo into tiny micro-fragments. These micro-fragments are then carried away from the tattoo site by the body’s own lymphatic system.
NO. Disappear Ink never charges for an initial consultation.
Disappear Ink follows the ‘Less is More’ principle and we do not take unnecessary short-cuts with our clients. We also utilise the world’s best laser system for laser tattoo removal, the Quanta Systems Discovery PICO Laser System. This system does not ‘burn’ the skin or the tattoo to effect removal. The laser energy actually shatters the ink particles in the tattoo into very tiny micro fragments. These micro-fragments are then carried away from the tattoo site by the body’s own lymphatic system. This shattering effect and natural dispersal result in less ink at the tattoo site and so there is a gradual, but noticeable fading of the tattoo. Some tattoos may respond to as few as two treatments but most usually require between four to eight treatments to be completely removed.
YES WE DO! We specialise in Eyebrow Tattoo Removal. Our Discovery Pico+ Laser System safely removes the ink in eyebrow tattoos without damaging the delicate eyebrow hair and without scarring the skin. And YES, after Eyebrow Tattoo Removal you can have new eyebrows tattooed, micro-bladed or feathered. The choice is yours.
Many people get a tattoo on the weekend and then on Monday want it removed. Unfortunately, the tattoo has to be allowed to fully heal first before laser tattoo removal can begin. Healing takes between 8 to 12 weeks. This way the skin fully recovers and the tattoo ink settles. Once healed, the laser tattoo removal treatment can do its job. Treating a tattoo before it is fully healed can lead to scarring and skin discolouration, so for a good removal outcome – patience is paramount.
YES, ABSOLUTELY. Remember, it’s OK to Change Your Mind. Many of our clients visit us specifically to have a tattoo removed or partially removed so a brand new one, more modern one or just simply fantastic one can take pride of place in your life.
SURE – Many of our clients come to us for laser tattoo removal to remove parts of their tattoos that need to be replaced, re-worked or just removed. So we can help you trim or clean up your tattoo as you require.
Really, the best time to start laser tattoo removal is when you are ready to have your tattoo faded or removed. That said, we find the best time from the comfort and easier recovery standpoint is straight after Summer has ended and you’ve put away the beach gear. That way, your treated tattoo can heal without too much sun and surf after each treatment. With enough head-start, you can be ready for next summer…
Best results are achieved when treatments are spaced eight or more weeks apart. The natural process of the body’s lymphatic system removing the micro-fragments of ink particles is on-going even though the ‘look’ on the surface seems that nothing is happening. Treating a tattoo earlier than eight weeks does not speed up the process of laser tattoo removal. It simply makes the client feel better and the clinic richer.

YES IT DOES. Just like when you first had your tattoo inked, you should not expose the treated area to the Sun where possible and ensure that when you are in the Sun (where it’s unavoidable) you should always use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ block-out as well as protective clothing for the duration of your Laser Tattoo Removal treatments.
