How does laser tattoo removal work?
The laser light passes through the top layer of skin, the targeted ink particles of the tattoo absorb the light energy which shatter into small pieces so that the body’s immune system can clear them away.

Does it hurt?
We take precautions to minimise the amount of discount associated with treatments.
Zimmer Cooler: A Zimmer cooling machine is used to cool the skin before, during and directly after the treatment, allowing for a comfortable treatment. The cold air is intended to minimize pain by providing temporary topical relief.
Emla: Prior to your treatment, you may numb the area with a topical anesthetic cream (such as Emla), available over the counter at any pharmacy.
Panadol: Some patients find that taking Panadol 30 – 60 minutes prior to their treatment helps pain tolerance.
What should I do before my treatment?
Avoid sun exposure (including solariums) to the treatment area for the 6 weeks leading up to the treatment. If you have fake tan on the treatment area, please scrub it off to ensure all fake tan is removed before treatment.
Shave the area the day before treatment if the tattoo is in a hair baring area (if necessary and if possible). Optional: apply a topical anaesthetic 60 minutes prior to treatment. Avoid aspirin, warfarin, ibuprofen and blood thinning medication before treatment.

Can I have just a piece of the tattoo removed?
Yes, the laser is accurate and can remove unwanted parts of tattoos.
Does the laser cause scarring?
Most of the time no but 99% of that is being compliant with aftercare instructions. If you are not 100% compliant with our aftercare instructions, scarring could result.
How does laser skin rejuvenation work?
Collagen provides the essential support network for our skin. As we age, collagen breaks down, causing lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure damages collagen too, and can cause pigment problems (brown spots), uneven tone and rough or leathery texture. Lasers use a precise wavelength of light energy to target underneath the skin, deeper than any lotions can work, stimulating collagen production at the source.
As new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are reduced. Studies indicate laser therapy helps create a refreshed appearance, smoother texture, more even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size.
Is the procedure safe?
When used by experienced practitioners, lasers are extremely safe. The energy is very selective and targets only the collagen fibres, hair or pigment. Advanced lasers that use Photo Acoustic energy can treat all skin colours safely - including darker and tanned skin.
What does the laser therapy feel safe?
Many people describe the feeling of non-ablative laser therapy as a tingling sensation. Anaesthesia is usually not necessary, but you may request a topical cream if you wish.
How many laser treatments will I need?
Although you will notice results after your first treatment, non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process. You typically need four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart. Many patients choose to return for regular treatments to maintain their great results. Just as they schedule hair colour and nail appointments, many women schedule laser treatments every one to three months as part of their ongoing skincare routine.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Laser skin rejuvenation may cause a mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. No specific post-care is needed, although you will be asked to avoid sun and certain skin products for a period of time. It is important to follow your consultant’s instructions and ask if you have any questions.
How does laser hair removal work?
|Laser hair removal works by targeting the treatment area with concentrated beams of light. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and is converted into heat. This process destroys the hair follicle and in turn stunts future hair growth, resulting in permanently removed or significantly reduced hair.|
How many sessions do I need to achieve hair-free skin?
In most cases, 6-8 sessions are required to achieve permanent hair free results. Some may require less, some may require more – it depends on your individual hair and skin type, as well as the area of the face or body you are having treated. You will begin to see results following your first session, with greater effects after each consecutive treatment.
