Laser Hair and Tattoo Removal on the Bikini Area

Question: I have a tattoo on my bikini area where I also want laser hair removal. Which laser treatment should i have first?

It is very important the tattoo is not treated by another laser as lasers target pigment or colour. In which case it would be best to have the tattoo removal treatment first. Once that is complete, commence laser hair removal.

Alternatively, some clinics advise a two week gap between the treatments, however the Laser hair removal should not be carried out anywhere there is tattoo ink. If the hair removal avoids the tattoo ink then it should be ok to carry out both laser treatments in adjacent areas. Your hair removal therapist should not go over the tattoo at all – in fact it is best generously covered and a 2 cm border left around it to avoid any laser hair removers interacting with the tattoo.

What can the PicoSure Laser do for you?

PicoSure – The first and leading choice for comfortable and convenient tattoo removal and skin revitalisation treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and pigment like freckles, sunspots and discolouration. 

PicoSure is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin (the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin).

Instead, PicoSure engineers used cutting edge physics and medical science to help practitioners treat patients in a new way. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.

Even more impressively, PicoSure’s revolutionary technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signaling, the body’s natural communication processes and one of the most exciting medical discoveries in recent history.

How does it work?

Your body already has what it takes to help you look and feel younger. Let PicoSure put it to work for you. 

Recent discoveries have begun to reveal the secret language of the body and how cells talk to each other to keep us healthy. Known as cell signaling, this biological communication occurs when cells are injured and release proteins, which are then detected by surrounding cells to trigger a healing response.

PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin. 

Other lasers promise to treat wrinkles, acne scars and blemishes. But only PicoSure and its PressureWave technology can deliver impressive results without the inconvenience, pain and downtime of other procedures.

With PicoSure, there’s no special prep and procedures typically take about 10-15 minutes. Most people experience no pain and describe treatments as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band, but your treatment provider may offer numbing cream to minimise any possible discomfort.

The Kobido massage: a good alternative to aesthetic surgery!
The KOBIDO massage is an ancient facial method that was used by women in Asia (Japan, Korea and China).This whole technique came back in style with the various methods, facial Yoga, facial gymnastics… but all with the same goal as a massage for any part of the body. It aims to help you regain tonicity, rebuild the contour of the face, lift the features up and push back or completely avoid aesthetic surgery.

KOBIDO is a deep manual massage, working on the 50 facial muscles and on all the layers of the tissues: While working on the facial muscles, we stimulate the fibroblasts, responsible for producing the cell collagen, drain excess fluid to flush out toxins and rejuvenate the skin as we reactivate blood flow, bringing nutrients to the tissues. We can complete the massage with acupressure points that help with relaxing the entire face and body. 

The added benefit of this Japanese massage technique is that you will rapidly notice changes if done on a regular basis.

Is Diode Laser Technology outdated?

What’s wrong with Diode laser hair removal?? You need to target each hair section so it will take you about two hours to complete leg hair removal. In addition the diode only has one wavelength so it is not suitable for light or dark skins. Many clinics have used it because there was no other choice. However technology is always improving and there is now a better alternative which is the soprano titanium with three wavelength making it suitable for all skin types. Also a bigger handpiece and and in motion technology means it works much much faster for later in the hall. Legs can take under half the amount of time when you compare it with a diode laser —

Things to Consider before making an appointment for Laser Tattoo Removal

Some Considerations Before Laser Tattoo Removal

1) If you are aged 16 to 18 you will need parental consent. No one under 16 can be treated. 

2) If you have a suntan, it is  best to rearrange your appointment for another 2 to 4 weeks as the laser will not be able to determine the difference between the pigment of the skin and the pigment of the tattoo and unwanted side-effects are very likely. 

The danger of laser tattoo removal treatments too close to active sun-tanning may result in hyper(darkening of the skin) or hypo (whitening of the skin) pigmentation changes. The additional UV light from the sun makes the treatment results unpredictable with the uncontrolled added energy resulting in hyperpigmentation. 

Conversely, having the sun’s UV light in your skin then compounding that with the laser, it will lock onto the ink and the darkened skin and recognizing them both as target pigments to be pulverized. This results in the colour of your skin being left white which could be temporary or even permanent.

To make a long story short, active tanning includes tanning beds. Not to be done 2 weeks either side of tattoo removal.

3) Facial pigmentation is best treated in winter months for this reason, that way you don’t need to lower the settings and can achieve better results. 

The same rules applied to all patch test also.

If you haven’t had a treatment in over a year, you will need to redo the patch test as this is normally required by insurances.

Laser Tattoo Removal and Treating Tanned Skin

Lasers targets colours so it is important that the laser can distinguish between your natural skin colour and tattoo ink.

If you have tanned or sun exposed skin in the tattooed area in the 4 weeks prior to your appointment, you are at risk of side effects from the laser.

For this reason we cannot treat ANY sun exposed skin/tanned laser if your skin has been exposed (of any kind) to the sun / sunbeds or fake tan in the last four weeks. If treated the side effects could be:

• Severe blistering- which could result in an infection

• Permanent scarring

• Broken Skin

• Hypo-pigmentation (loss of natural skin colour)

• Hyper-pigmentation (darkening of natural skin colour)

• Hindered results in removal – resulting in more treatments needed

How can you tell if your skin is tanned:

To clarify: your skin is considered tanned if there has been a change in your NATURAL skin colour. Even if you are of Asian Indian or “olive ” skin, you need to follow the above rule. If you have tanned, we recommend you wait at least four weeks before booking your appointment for laser tattoo removal. You can avoid tanning by covering up your tattoo and applying sun block.

While there is often a rush to progress with laser tattoo removal appointments, your safety should always be paramount. If in doubt, always consult your trusted laser therapist or seek professional advice. Book your free consultation at LaserYou, Burnham www.laseryou.co.uk Tel: 01628 663075 [email protected]

So…Laser Tattoo Removal hasn’t worked for you?

This video says it all. After 2 unsuccessful laser tattoo removal treatments and a new boyfriend, American TV host Adrienne Bailon began the process of removing a tattoo of ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian’s name with the help of Dr. Jeremy Brauer and the PicoSure Laser. So many people wonder why they should choose a more expensive laser treatment when their local tattoo studio may be offering a cheaper service. Surely laser tattoo removal is the same wherever you go?? Well, NO it isnt. There is a simple reason why Pico technology is better: the cheaper lasers have older technology and therefore do not work as well as the PicoSure.

The PicoSure laser is the first major breakthrough in laser tattoo removal in the last 20 years .
All other laser devices are Nano second lasers. So the PicoSure has 1000 times shorter pulse duration -which also means it is 1000 times faster than earlier methods. The PicoSure laser delivers short bursts of energy to the skin in a trillionth of a second. You’re actually shattering the tattoo particle in the fastest possible way, giving you the best option at wiping the slate clean.
