Making an appointment with Disappear Ink is the beginning of your Laser Tattoo Removal journey. Our Laser Specialists will determine the best approach to achieve the results you want for your tattoo.
Once the treatment plan is agreed, the area to be treated will be prepared using a Zimmer Cryo6 Cold Air Device. This device is used to cool the skin before, during and after laser treatment to minimise pain during treatment. Should you require additional pain relief, we can offer at an additional cost, Topical Dermal Anaesthetic Cream.
The laser is then calibrated for maximum efficacy with minimum discomfort. Laser Tattoo Removal does NOT burn the skin. A focused pulse of laser energy is directed into the upper layer of the skin causing the ink to shatter into micro-particles which are able to pass through the skin naturally, gradually dissolving and fading the tattoo.
Upon completion of the laser tattoo removal treatment, the treated site is cooled further using the Zimmer Cryo6 Cold Air Device and dressed if required. Your clinician will explain the Aftercare procedure fully.
The next appointment is then scheduled for 6 or more weeks later. This allows the skin to recover perfectly and allows time for your body’s lymphatic system to remove the shattered micro-particles of ink. Treatments can be made at longer intervals if required, just not earlier as it doesn’t ‘speed-up’ fading. Read our Tips on Improving Your Fading.
