Tattoo Removal


Tattoo removal can be achieved with more than one technique. The inscribed tattoo removal takes a long time to complete removal as the ink used in the tattoo has been placed in the deep skin layers.  The ink used for the tattoo has pigments that are responsible for the tattoo colour.   The different techniques used for tattoo removal are as follows –

  1. Laser Surgery
  2. Surgical Excision
  3. Dermabrasion

Tattoo Removal procedure is done in 3 steps

  • Laser surgery is performed with a unique FDA-approved laser machine emitting Q-switched lasers. This laser machine shoots a powerful pulse of energy which breaks the pigment into smaller fragments. These fragments get flushed away from the cells in a natural process resulting in tattoo removal. Repetitive laser sessions at regular interval time are performed for achieving the desired results. This laser process is considered to be the safe & effective process offering the best results.
  • Surgical excision of the tattooed skin is performed under the local anaesthesia effect. Stitches are applied following the excision of the tattoo and healing is influenced by antibacterial ointment application.
  • Dermabrasion is where the tattooed area is treated with an abrasive surface of a high-speed rotary device. The skin is numbed with topical anaesthesia before the dermabrasion and heals in a few weeks.
