Tattoo Blowout

If your tattoo artist has been a bit heavy-handed with the needle or perhaps they were inexperienced, the result may be not quite what you expected – extra shading around the edge of the tattoo. Commonly this is referred to as tattoo blow out or tattoo bleeding. Essentially it is the ink is running beyond the design. So it looks a bit like extra shading around the tattoo, which is not what you wanted. Fortunately the ink in the tattoo blowout is quite faint. This makes it a lot easier for the laser machines to break down the ink.

So if you want to get rid of tattoo blow out/bleeding book your free consultation with us and take that first step to achieving the tattoo you wanted.–

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.
