What to expect
We're here to help you through the process of removing your unwanted tattoos.
Your tattoo removal journey begins with a no-obligation consultation with one of our professionals. During this time, they will assess the location, depth, density, and colour of your tattoo to determine the approximate number of treatments required to fade or remove it.
The number of treatments you'll need is determined by a variety of factors, including the size of your tattoo, the depth to which the pigment penetrates your skin, your skin type, and the tattoo's location. Our team will guide you through the aftercare process and we are available 7 days a week if you have any follow up questions.
Benefits of the Picoway Laser
The PicoWay laser is the most advanced laser for tattoo removal currently available on the market, meaning fewer treatments are required to remove your tattoo.
Delivering high power pulses of light measured in a trillionth of a second, or a picosecond, the laser is able to very effectively shatter the ink in your tattoo, whilst minimising damage to the surrounding tissue. This allows results to be obtained in a short period of time and with minimal discomfort.
PicoWay is the world's fastest tattoo removal laser, operating at 300ps and uses a unique wavelength of 785nm that is proven to be more effective with stubborn blue and green inks.
The photoacoustic shockwave (mechanical energy) generated by the PicoWay laser's speed is what shatters the ink pigment, not heat, therefore causing hardly any damage leading to faster recovery times.
Due to their slower speeds, other lasers use photothermal energy to heat the ink pigment and fracture the ink. Heating the ink reduces its effectiveness and harms the surrounding tissue.
More sessions are also required with slower lasers because they leave behind ink particles that do not break up and cannot be absorbed by the body.
Frequently Asked Questions
Pain is mild when using the PicoWay laser. It is the most comfortable option for people in comparison to many other lasers.
This is due to the photoacoustic effect rather than photothermal.
For any individuals who have a low pain threshold, we do have a cool air device that can help.
This can vary depending on the size, colour and design of the tattoo, as well as the person’s skin type. Preparation and immediate after-care also require additional time.
For laser use, based on the size of the tattoo, typical times are:
- Extra-small: 1-2 mins
- Small: 2-5 mins
- Medium: 10-15 mins
- Large: 20-40 mins
This again varies depending on the size, colour and design of the tattoo, as well as the person’s skin type.
Side effects are expected with laser tattoo removal, however, these are often temporary. It is usually a sign of your immune system kicking in, doing the job of removing the tattoo.
Common temporary effects:
- Changes in colour of tattoo pigmentation
- Textural changes
Yes you can. Fading a tattoo before covering it up with a new one is recommended as it gives greater control over the colour and intensity of the new tattoo.
This can be done with the PicoWay laser we use at Cloak & Dagger. We are able to target specific areas of the tattoo or the entire design.
Scarring is a rare side effect of laser tattoo removal.
At Cloak & Dagger, we follow strict laser protocols and recommend what aftercare to follow, greatly reducing any chance of scarring.
Aftercare is an important part of the tattoo removal process. Failure to do so can result in unwanted side effects.
We will advise you to:
- Avoid sun exposure, wearing at least factor 30 sun protection on the area.
- Application of aloe vera to minimise the risk of infection.
- Wear loose, clean and non-fluffy clothing against the treated area to avoid rubbing.
- Avoid picking any scabs or blisters to minimise the risk of infection.
To ensure full healing, we will book your next session 8 weeks from your last appointment. This timing is based on numerous clinical trials by Candela Medical.
No. Any claims that they do are false.
It is impossible for a cream to permeate through the epidermis (top layer) of skin, into the dermis (middle layer) and destroy tattoo pigmentation.
Use of tattoo removal cream comes with great risk and can result in skin whitening, eczema and chemical burns.
