Laser Tattoo Removal - SKIIN®

Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments

My Q switched laser if effective for removing any unwanted tattoos and permanent make up.

This advanced technology works by allowing the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The laser fragments the ink particles without causing damage to the skin, then through your body’s natural healing processes the macrophages of the immune system engulf the particles removing the ink fragments from your body. This allows your tattoo to fade with only minimal risks of scarring or skin discolouration.
