Permanent tattoo removal in four simple steps

It is entirely possible to permanently remove a tattoo with the LightSense™ laser system. 

There are a number of factors that determine how effective the process of tattoo removal will be. In this blog we look at each of them in turn.

This is how the process of laser tattoo removal should work, in four simple steps. 

Step 1

The first step towards a permanent tattoo removal begins when you get the tattoo in the first place. Choosing a reputable tattoo artist who works with safe, high-quality inks can greatly improve your chances of permanently removing a tattoo. 

The location of the tattoo on the body will impact how well the tattoo clears. Inks located closer to the heart, where there is a strong flow of blood, will clear a lot faster than those at the extremities. 

It is also possible to choose inks that are designed to fade over time. The clearing of these semi-permanent tattoos may then be sped up with the laser. 

There are several other factors that can improve the success of a tattoo removal so that the ink is gone for good. 

Step 2

Choose a laser for tattoo removal that suits your skin type and lifestyle. If you’d like to have treatments every 2-3 weeks as opposed to waiting months then the LightSense™ laser system could be perfect for you. It works on low energy and so there is less downtime between treatments.

Permanent tattoo removal usually requires a programme of treatments and can take a number of months.  

Step 3

Make sure that you are eating well, resting, and avoiding alcohol during your treatment window. Following safe sun guidelines will also help to ensure that you get the most out of laser tattoo removal. The state of your immune system is crucial to this process as it is the lymphatic system that effectively clears unwanted ink pigment from the body after the laser treatments. 

Step 4

Be patient, the clearing of tattoo ink is a process that, once set in motion by the laser, continues over weeks and months. The results might become clear gradually, but if you consult the before and after gallery at NAAMA studios in London, where the LightSense™ laser system is exclusively used, you’ll see that they can be stark.

Sometimes it is not possible to remove a tattoo. Here are some of the reasons why.

It is important to consult a professional for the best assessment of how well a tattoo will clear.

The technology

The LightSense™ laser system has been designed to give clients with tattoos of all specifications the best possible chance at a permanent removal.  

The LightSense™ laser system has an accurate spot size of 0.4mm, smaller than the nib of a pen, to give it the best chance of removing every single part of an intricate tattoo design, with as minimal skin damage as possible. 

Permanent tattoo removal relies on an accurate laser that can target every section of ink, while keeping the rest of the surrounding skin safe from the laser beam.
