Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
Laser Tattoo removal with either the RevLite or PicoSure machine will hurt to a certain extent – it’s usually compared to the pain of an elastic band being ‘pinged’ onto your skin. Many of our clients say that if you’ve been through the process of having a tattoo, the RevLite laser is equal to or slightly less painful and the Picosure is noticeably less painful. For further reading check out our more detailed blog post specifically on this question.
What are the side effects of laser tattoo removal?
As with many clinical treatments, side effects are a given and most are a sign that your body is beginning to heal. Read this blog post for a detailed explanation on all possible side effects of laser tattoo removal.
How many sessions do I need?
This all depends on the size and type of tattoo you have. A large professional tattoo will require more sessions than a small amateur tattoo. The best thing to do is consult our PicoSure page where you’ll find a general guide. For the most accurate advice, attend the clinic for a free consultation.
What's the best way to care for my skin after laser treatment?

Can I go in the sun after laser tattoo removal?

How does it work?
Cosmetic laser treatments reverse the signs of aging and sun-damaged skin by stimulating collagen production and promoting tissue tightening through tissue coagulation.
How many treatments are required?
Results will very from patient to patient, but most cases require between 2 and 6 treatments to achieve the desired results. Each session will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
How long will results last?
Similar to the aging process, this varies from patient to patient. However, taking steps to protect your rejuvenated skin (i.e. by using SPF sunscreen, facial cleansers and creams) the results and effects will last far longer.
