As with every other laser machine at Samantha Ward Aesthetics, we use the most advanced technology.
For tattoo removal we use a Harmony XL Pro Platform by Alma Lasers with a Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser head, it enables us to remove most tattoos. Pulses of light from the laser shatter and break up the tattoo pigment. Over the next couple of weeks the body’s macrophages which are basically big eaters in the immune system naturally eliminate the pigment making it a very safe treatment. The feeling of Laser Tattoo Removal is not dissimilar to the pain of having the tattoo itself done; we use a medical cooling device on every client.
The normal reaction to the laser is an inflammatory response and the area can become quite red, thorough after care advice is given on what to expect and what to do after laser tattoo removal. Once the course of treatment is completed, the results are permanent and clients will not require any further treatment.

1-45 mins, depending on the size of your tattoo. For example, a tattoo that is a black, 5x5cm square would take 2-3 mins to complete.
6-12 weeks. Tattoo removal is without a doubt, a slow process, if done correctly and respected. It is essential to allow your skin to heal properly inbetween each treatment. The longer you are able to leave inbetween treatments, the better, as the treatment continues to eat away at pigment and it's much kinder to your skin. Patience is needed if you're undergoing tattoo removal!
Does It Hurt?
The feeling of Laser Tattoo Removal is not dissimilar to the pain of having the tattoo itself done; we use a medical cooling device on every client - which in our opinion is essential to combine with this treatment. A great tip to minimise discomfort is to apply numbing cream 1 hour before your appointment and to also take some pain relief tablets.
My Tattoo Contains Red Ink - Is This Treatable?
Absolutely! With Alma's Harmony XL Pro platform, it has different nibs for specific colours! We will always set realistic expectations before you commence any treatments.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
This is dependent on a number of factors: 1) The age of the tattoo 2) What type of ink was used 3) Whether the ink sits superficially or deep in the skin 4) The thickness of any lines etc (thin lines fade quicker) 5) The colour of the tattoo 6) If the tattoo is a cover up 7) How your skin reacts and heals to treatment 8) How good your immune system is This will be discussed upon consultation, to give you an idea of how many tattoo removal treatments you will need.
