What happens if I am unsure about the laser treatment options?
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 Patch Test once you have decided to proceed with the treatment.
Do you provide laser treatments to everyone and all Skin Types?
In the vast majority of cases we can provide an effective treatment plan for clients with skin types I, II, III and IV based on the Fitzpatrick Scale. If you have skin type V or VI 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.
In some limited cases our team would not decide to pursue a laser tattoo removal treatment. For example, if we feel you are unsure about the treatment, if we feel that your skin may not respond positively to the laser treatment following a Patch Test, if we felt you were at particular risk of developing side-effects, if there is an underlying health condition or if you are pregnant.
All London Tattoo Clinic clients are required to be over the age of 18 years to be able to be treated. London Tattoo Clinic may require you to provide identification to validate your age.
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 that we would not offer to proceed with a treatment if we felt that you were particularly at risk of developing side-effects.
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.
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 pay for a full course of treatments in advance or to purchase a discounted package of 4 x treatment sessions.
