What is covered during a consultation?
Your consultation is with an experienced Aesthetic Laser Practitioner who specialises in Laser Tattoo Removal. We will have some questions regarding your general health to ensure you are suitable for a course of laser treatments. We will then assess the tattoo(s) and your skin to best determine the treatment options. During your consultation we will discuss the risks associated with laser treatments. We’ll discuss the result we can confidently expect to achieve and will estimate the number of treatments we feel will be needed. Finally we will confirm the cost of the treatments so you can decide whether to proceed with the laser tattoo removal treatment plan we advise.
What happens if I want to go ahead with the laser treatment?
Once you are happy and wish to proceed with the treatment plan we will carry out a quick Patch Test to ensure you are suitable for treatment. Patch Tests are also FREE. Please read more about our patch tests below.
What happens if I am unsure about the laser tattoo removal treatment?
We would not proceed with treatments without our clients being entirely happy and confident in the advice they receive during a consultation. If you are unsure whether a laser tattoo removal treatment course is right for you then we would advise you take some time to further consider your options. You are always welcome to book a follow-up appointment once you have decided to proceed with the treatment.
What are the risks associated with laser tattoo removal?
Although the vast majority of clients should not encounter any problems or side-effects; laser treatments can, in some rare instances, lead to side-effects such as scarring and skin discolouration.
How can you minimise such risks?
It is vital that you work with a professional tattoo removal provider who has a proven and well maintained laser system and that the tattoo removal process is carried out by a practitioner qualified to operate lasers and IPL machines. These factors, following sensible post-treatment advice and spacing your appointments appropriately will help to best protect you and will minimise the risks associated with the laser tattoo removal treatment. At London Tattoo Clinic we assess each patient for potential risks and will discuss them with you fully prior to proceeding with a treatment. Patch Testing also helps to ensure the treatment process is right for you. Please note: We would not proceed with a treatment if we felt that you were particularly at risk of developing side-effects.
How many treatments will it usually take to remove a tattoo?
The number of treatments needed to remove a tattoo varies from person to person. It will depend on factors such as the size, positioning, your skin type, the colour composition, the ink depth and quality of the tattoo being treated. Along with how well your body responds to each treatment.
The majority of our clients can usually expect to see a visible reduction after the first one or two treatments and the tattoo will continue to fade over the following weeks. Typically our clients tend to require between five to eight treatments to reach the optimal tattoo removal result. Larger, dense, cover-ups and more complex tattoos will usually require more treatments to safely achieve the optimal tattoo removal results from their treatment course.
During your consultation we’ll assess your skin type, your tattoo and will take general medical details from you to enable us to determine your suitability for treatment and to provide an estimate to indicate the number of treatments that we expect will be required.
PLEASE NOTE: Your treatments will be scheduled 8-weeks apart to allow time for each treatment to achieve the best results and to allow your skin to recover perfectly.
What is a Patch Test?
A Patch Test is a short procedure to ensure that the treatment site of the tattoo responds positively and correctly to the laser treatment. Patch Testing helps us to deliver the very best results for our clients and is there to help best protect you. A Patch Test is a short procedure using the laser which takes just a few seconds. A Patch Test also allows you to briefly experience the same laser process which we employ during a full treatment. This procedure often helps clients to understand that the process is entirely manageable and far less painful than some clients been led to believe. Patch Tests are Free for all new clients.
Do you provide laser treatments to everyone and all Skin Types?
In the vast majority of cases we can provide a safe and successful tattoo removal treatment plan for most clients.
Our treatments are designed to successfully treat clients with Skin Types 1, 2, 3 and 4 (based on the Fitzpatrick Scale).
If you have dark skin (skin type 5 or 6) then we are very happy to provide general advice on the procedure however we would not be able to provide laser treatments due to the increased risk of complications when treating these skin types 5 and 6.
Please contact us directly if you have any questions or queries. Or visit our Advice Page to see an indicative Skin Type Scale.
Do I have to pay for my course of treatments in advance?
Our clients are free to choose to pay for single treatments one at a time, as they have them. Clients can also choose to purchase a discounted package of 4 x treatment sessions. Visit our tattoo removal prices page for more information on treatment packages.
