Tattoo Removal Cream

It is understandable that we always want a cost effective solution. You may also be looking for a quick fix. So when you initially research tattoo removal, you may come across tattoo removal creams. As a professional laser clinic of course we do not endorse or promote tattoo removal creams. In fact we would categorically tell you not to use them. However you do not need to solely take our view on this matter; read this article: https://www.netdoctor.co.uk/conditions/skin-and-hair/a28881832/tattoo-removal-cream/

How many treatments do I need to get rid of my tattoo?

This is no doubt the most commonly asked question at our clinic. Is also the question which is the most difficult to respond to. Take two people with exactly the same tattoo done by the same artist with the same ink on the same body area. When treated they may well experience very different results. This is mostly down to the fact that it is the individual’s circulation that plays a big part in tattoo removal. Remember, it is the laser machine that breaks down the ink, but it is the body that eliminates the ink. The good news is that with the PicoSure laser (by Cynosure) the amount of treatments required is a lot fewer when compared to other non-picosecond lasers. We have clients who have had non pico treatments at other clinics, sometimes 10- 20 sessions and the tattoo persists; either the results are too slow or they have been left with some colour which just won’t shift. This is simply down to the machine not having the capability. So there is no concrete answer to your question! What we can show you is a cross range of tattoos we have treated. To date the PicoSure is the most advanced laser so it is your best chance at getting complete tattoo removal. Take a look at this current client: six treatments and it’s almost gone.
