What is Laser Tattoo Removal Perth?

Laser Tattoo Removal is seen as the safest mode of tattoo removal. At Absolute Cosmetic we offer both PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal and Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser Tattoo Removal.

The Picosure laser is the gold standard in coloured tattoo removal technology. We had the first PicoSure machine in Western Australia and have performed thousands of sessions. It has extremely positive feedback from patients.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

The laser works by delivering energy to the tattoo, breaking the ink particles into smaller pieces. The particles are eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system resulting in a lightening of the tattoo ink.

To completely remove the tattoo you will need multiple sessions. During these sessions, the ink particles gradually become smaller.

Does PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

Many say that the feeling is similar to the feel of getting a tattoo but much faster. We have multiple options to reduce discomfort including numbing cream and gas.

How Many Sessions of Laser Tattoo Removal Do I Need?

The number of laser treatments required will depend on a number of factors including:

  • Laswe used (PicoSure will generally remove a tattoo in fewer sessions than Nd:YAG),
  • Ink type,
  • Size of the tattoo,
  • Location of the tattoo,
  • How old the tattoo is,
  • Tattoo colour (PicoSure Laser is more suited to removing coloured ink than Nd:YAG),
  • Scarring in the area,
  • The density of the ink,
  • Amateur vs professional tattoo,
  • Type of laser used,
  • Lifestyle habits,
  • Personal immune system

Can I Lighten My Tattoo To Have Another Put On Top?

Yes, not all patient’s desired results are to completely remove their tattoo. PicoSure is one of the best options for those looking to lighten a tattoo before a cover-up. This is due to the fact that PicoSure works to gradually lighten the tattoo rather than destroying it.

How much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?

The cost of Laser Tattoo Removal depends on the size of the Tattoo. Prices start from $149 per session with our experienced Cosmetic Nurses. Complimentary consultations are available to offer a quote for both Nd:YAG and PicoSure Tattoo Removal.

What Is The Difference Between PicoSure and Nd:YAG Tattoo Removal

There are many types of laser machines that can remove tattoos. We have seen positive results from both Nd:YAG and PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal.

The main advantage of Picosure is extremely short-pulse time. This allows very high energy to be delivered rapidly to the tattoo pigment. It destroys the pigment more effectively and, in most cases, leaves the skin intact. This means fewer treatments, fewer complications and better results.

We recommend that those who are interested in Laser Tattoo Removal book a complimentary consultation to go over the different options and obtain a quote. There is no obligation to book treatment after the consultation.

What happens after the procedure?

A common side effect of a laser session is a slight whitening or ‘frosting’ of the skin which may feel dry and itchy. Some other side effects include mild swelling and redness some may experience slight blistering and pinpoint bleeding for a few days after the treatment. There is a small risk of scarring, however, this risk is very low.

Every tattoo is unique and contains different colours and different volumes of ink. It’s important to speak with one of our doctors to find out how many treatments you may need, and what to expect.

With Picosure, the number of treatments is generally expected to be roughly half of that required for alternative laser removal.
