Your Tattoo Removal Questions Answered

Three in ten Australians have at least one tattoo that they seriously regret. From misspelling, unwanted names etched into skin to tattoos that haven’t aged with you, tattoo removal has become one of the most sought-after treatments in Australia.

Before any aesthetic treatment, we always recommend doing your research to find the best treatment provider for your needs. Tattoo removal is no different! Today, we’re answering your most frequently asked tattoo removal treatment questions to ensure you feel informed when it’s time to begin your tattoo removal journey.

How does tattoo removal actually work?

Tattoo Removal works by using q-switched laser technology that targets different coloured tattoo inks at various wavelengths. These wavelengths are absorbed by the tattoo ink, which are immediately shattered and absorbed by the body. As you visit us for additional treatments, further pigment will be shattered, and the tattoo will be removed.

I have a coloured tattoo. Can I have it removed?

Absolutely! We use the Deka Synchro QS 4 Laser, a state-of-the-art machine that features 4 different wavelengths. This means we’re able to treat a variety of tattoo colours such as black, red, green and blue.

When it comes to finding your tattoo removal treatment provider, this is an important question to ask as not all tattoo removal machines are made the same! Some are unable to effectively remove certain colours and therefore, you won’t see the result you’re hoping for.

How many treatments will it take to remove my tattoo?

The amount of treatments required to remove a tattoo is dependent on the tattoo type, size, age and the technology used to remove it. During your consultation, we’ll craft your personalised tattoo removal treatment plan to achieve your goals. Thanks to our industry- leading tattoo removal technology, many clients see tattoo removal results after 6 treatments.

Laser tattoo removal can also be used as a cover up method to make way for new tattoos. Cover up sessions require less treatments than total tattoo removal as we’re just focussing on where your new ink will be placed.

Let’s be honest. Does the treatment hurt?
