Laser Tattoo Removal in London
What makes us different
To be honest, we’re the best of both worlds. We have the same, or often better laser removal technology and training compared to medical clinics, but we’re also London's highest rated and most reviewed tattoo shop and have a deep understanding of the different skin types people have and how to treat them during and after laser tattoo removal treatments.
We’re the first tattoo studio in London to use the PicoWay laser. It’s the most advanced laser tattoo removal system on the market.
FAST RESULTS WITH FEWER TEATMENTS
Our laser operates in trillionths of a second and that means those stubborn tattoos come off faster.
HIGHLY TRAINED TECHNICIANS
Our laser technicians have received the latest nationally recognised tattoo removal training and extensive machine specific training.
LESS PAIN AND DAMAGE
Our laser uses photoacoustic shockwave technology instead of heat which helps to reduce damage to surrounding tissue.
Proud to be the first Tattoo Studio in London to use Picoway Laser Technology
Here's what you need to know about the Picoway Laser System:
Getting rid of your tattoo is easier than you think
This is a no-obligation consultation where we assess the location, depth, density, and colour of your tattoo to determine approximately how many treatments you’ll need for your desired results.
Most tattoos will take somewhere between three and six sessions to fade enough for a cover up. Someone on our friendly team will help you schedule out your sessions approximately 8 weeks apart.
We always take extra precautions for your safety when it comes to our laser tattoo removal treatments. Everything is highly sanitised and professionally administered for your protection and best results.
Our technicians will also take the time to walk you through the entire process before we start so you know exactly what to expect. And also cover aftercare so you completely understand the healing process.
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.
