Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal2024-01-30T18:09:31+00:00

At Bodilight we use specialised laser technology to diminish your unwanted tattoos. The treatment is simple, safe, and effective.

Tattoos have never been as popular as they are now and as their popularity continues to grow across all aspects of society, more people will wind up with a tattoo that they regret. Whether you want to get your tattoo removed one year on or forty years on, you don’t need to sit through hours of painful laser treatment. Our laser tattoo removal is fast and safe producing fantastic results.

The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles which then the body disposes of these fragments via its immune system.

We are here to provide you with the highest standard of pre-treatment, treatment and post treatment care to support you through your tattoo removal journey.


Can topical anaesthetic cream be applied before the treatment?2023-06-19T20:17:31+00:00

Definitely! topical anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area 15-20 minutes beforehand, this may significantly reduce the intensity and can make the treatment very tolerable.

Can I remove a tattoo I have already had done as a cover up?2023-06-19T20:16:43+00:00

Yes we can, but as this is effectively two tattoos, it will take longer than a single tattoo as we will have to remove it layer by layer.

How often will I need a treatment?2023-06-19T20:15:44+00:00

It is important to wait until the skin is fully healed before doing another treatment. This means there are usually around 6 week intervals between sessions.

How many treatments will I need?2023-06-19T20:15:12+00:00

For optimum results we recommend booking a course of a minimum of 6 treatments. However, during your consultation your tattoo will be assessed by a specialist who will advise you on your suitability, expected results and number of treatments likely.

Can I remove a part of a tattoo only?2023-06-19T20:14:35+00:00

Yes, the laser has an infrared aiming beam for accurate treatment. You can also cover white cream on the area you don’t want to remove, it will protect no any damage.

I only want to fade my tattoo so I can have a cover up, how many sessions will I need?2023-06-19T20:12:04+00:00

1-4 sessions will be ok, the effectiveness of tattoo removal depends on colour, size, age and area.

I had my tattoo done recently, how soon can I remove it? Will it be easier to remove because it’s new?2023-06-19T20:11:10+00:00

No, we advise the tattoo to be at least a year old.

Is there any guarantee with this treatment?2023-06-19T20:10:08+00:00

Unfortunately, we can never guarantee complete removal. Removing the tattoo does not cause any scarring, although the act of tattooing can cause a scar that is less visible while the ink is there. If your tattoo feels raised to the touch then when the ink is removed that will still be there.
Most patients will see improvement in the appearance after the first treatment. Sometimes this improvement is dramatic, and sometimes it can be subtle. It takes time for the immune system to fully absorb the treated ink.

Do I need a test patch?2023-06-19T20:09:40+00:00

Yes! This is an essential safety measure to establish the optimum treatment settings to allow us to treat you effectively with minimal risk of side effects.

Will my tattoo go completely?2023-06-19T20:09:17+00:00

In most cases, yes. Therefore, each tattoo fades at a different rate and sometimes a small amount of pigmentation may remain in the skin even after multiple treatments. This is acceptable to be considered a removed tattoo.

What should I do/not do following my treatment?2023-06-19T20:08:48+00:00

Avoid exposure to sunlight as much as possible after the procedure. Do not remove the scab before it naturally falls off, as this may lead to pigmentation.

Is there anything I should do prior to my treatment?2023-06-19T20:08:14+00:00

There should be no active or fake tan in the area to be treated. Avoid using sun beds or having prolonged exposure to sunlight for one month prior to treatment and an SPF 30+ must be used on the area between treatments. Suntans must be left to fade completely before treatment can start. On the day of your appointment, ensure that the area is clean, shaved and no lotions are used.

Are there any risks?2023-06-19T20:06:02+00:00

Laser tattoo removal using Nd-Yag Q-Switch lasers are the safest; however, complications can occur. Acute complications include:- pain, blistering, crusting and pinpoint haemorrhage.

Is it a painful procedure?2023-06-19T20:05:32+00:00

Laser tattoo removal typically does involve some level of pain. That said, many say that it hurts less than they expected. It’s a common belief that tattoo removal is excruciating, yet most patients say that the sensation of removal is comparable to having a tattoo applied. A key difference is that laser tattoo removal is much quicker – most treatments take between 30 seconds and 10 minutes for completion. Pain associated with the laser light is typically described like an elastic band hitting the skin.

How long does a treatment take?2023-06-19T19:57:02+00:00

Depending on the size of the tattoo the treatment time can take 1-15 minutes.

Is it safe?2023-06-19T19:56:23+00:00

Since the specific wavelengths used can only be absorbed by pigment particles, no lasting injury happens to normal skin and normal tissues. The Nd-Yag Q-Switch laser systems can now remove all types of tattoo with little or no scarring, professional and amateur tattoos, as well as traumatic tattoos successfully.

How does it work?2023-06-19T19:56:05+00:00

Nd-Yag Q-Switch laser delivers specific-wavelengths of light extremely quickly (in nano-seconds) at a very high energy. These pulses are selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment, shattering it into tiny fragments small enough for the body to recognise the particles as a foreign object, and over the next several weeks some of particles (in shallow cuticle) are discharged from the body and the other part (in deep tissue) are absorbed and digested by the body’s macrophages and removed out of the body by the immune system.


Laser Tattoo Removal

I opted to have Laser tattoo removal treatment on an old tattoo I had done 20+ years ago when ‘tribal’ type tattoos were all the rage! The laser treatment was quick and effective and I could see results quite quickly. The results after 5 treatments are amazing! As always at Bodilight, the team are professional, warm and friendly. There’s always a smiley face to greet you and the service is impeccable. I can highly recommend the laser tattoo removal and many other treatments at Bodilight.
