Laser Tattoo Removal in Southend, Essex

Laser tattoo removal

In the majority of cases, laser tattoo removal requires more than one treatment to complete the job. Tattoo removal depends on the size of the tattoo, your skin type and the types of ink used on the tattoo.

On average, most people require 10-12 sessions in order to completely remove the tattoo, but your doctor will be able to give you a more definitive estimate after your initial consultation. Occasionally, depending on the depth of the tattoo and many other conditions, you will need more than 12 sessions. Each person will have a different treatment cycle depending on the aforementioned factors as well as the specific doctor who will be working on your tattoo.

With our experience in laser tattoo removal in Southend, Essex, we prefer to treat the tattoo area in more sessions than to create a scar or even create other side effects that may be experienced by practitioners who rush the procedure with no consideration toward your skin care.

At JR Medical, your laser tattoo removal will only ever be skillfully carried out by an experienced medical professional who can ensure that the procedure takes as long as it needs, to prevent any unnecessary scarring.

The following explains the laser tattoo removal procedure:

  • Patients wear protective eye shields during the laser tattoo removal to protect them.
  • The doctor will test a sample area of skin with the laser to determine the energy level required to remove the tattoo.
  • After a hand piece is applied to the skin, the doctor will activate the laser and begin the  laser tattoo removal process.
  • When the laser tattoo removal session is complete, the doctor will apply an ice pack to the skin.
  • Between laser tattoo removal treatments, the patient will need to apply a topical cream to keep the skin from becoming infected or irritated unnecessarily.
