Basically, laser tattoo removal works by delivering short, powerful pulses of laser energy to the tattoo, which shatters the ink particles. Lasers used during the tattoo removal process gradually fade the tattoo over a series of treatments.

The number of treatments depend on several factors, such as the colour, age, density of the tattoo but also where the tattoo is situated on the body.

Here at Faded Ink before any treatment takes place a full consultation and patch test will be carried out. The patch test determines how the skin reacts to the laser treatment but also gives you a good indication on how the full treatment will feel. The consultation and patch test are FREE of charge.

If you had a tattoo then you will be fine with removing it...

I have heard in the past that the tattoo removal process is worse, than having the initial tattoo, yet most of my clients say that the sensation is comparable to having the tattoo. Common description includes the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Of course, the pain is uncomfortable, but it is bearable. You must remember that depending on the size of the tattoo, the laser removal process session is much quicker and faster than having the tattoo in the first place.
