Laser Treatment FAQs

permanent tattoo removal treatment

Does is work?

It works. We have the BEST laser, which shows superior results. In order to improve effectiveness of the procedure, we also adopt a combination of other natural treatments, which are designed uniquely by Midlands Laser Clinic.

How does it work?

During the treatment process we apply a laser light which passes harmlessly through your skin, targeting only the ink resting in the tattoo and shattering it into miniscule particles, which will be disposed of through your body’s natural processes. So, it works through the combination of our hi-tech laser and your clever body.

When can I see the results?

While it is possible to see immediate results, usually the fading occurs gradually over time, and sometimes you would require 6-7 week healing period between treatments.

I have a wedding / job interview, how quickly can my tattoo be removed?

A single colour Indian ink and red area tattoos generally require 6-12 treatments but other colours may need considerably more treatments to remove the tattoo.

Our unique approach means that we will work with you to get your tattoo removed or faded for that special occasion, through the combination of our powerful laser and a life style adjustment consultation. Your body is an active agent in the tattoo removal process and the more effective it is, the faster the tattoo will be removed. You can help your body eliminate the shattered ink by making small adjustments to your day-to-day routines, such as drinking plenty of water, massage and exercise.

We will work with you to help you achieve your objective.

Is it painful?

Much will depend on your pain threshold, because tattoo removal is a painful process. Our Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling machine is superbly equipped to help with pain management during the course of your treatment. We can also apply skin numbing ointments prior to your treatment.
