Tattoo Removal - FOTONA Fractat Laser
Tattoos can be removed much more safely and effectively than in the past. Scarring as a result of removal is no longer a common side effect and usually, it is difficult to see where the tattoo actually was. Not all colours respond equally, and some tattoos cannot be removed completely. We assess your tattoo in-clinic to discuss realistic expectations and will advise if you have one of these tattoos.
There are a number of lasers available for tattoo removal.
We use the latest technology with the Fotona Starwalker FracTat protocol which combines q-switch and pico-second lasers with a fractional ablative laser. The fractional ablation makes for a superior result- fewer treatments required and less downtime than conventional lasers.
To explain this, tattoo particles are dyes embedded in the skin that are too large for the body’s immune system to clear away. The immune system functions to remove foreign particles recognising anything foreign as a toxin that it needs to protect against. As the immune system cannot clear these large ink particles it shields them off from the rest of the body but they remain in place, this is why the ink remains permanently. The fractional technology aims to shatter and release the pigment into micro-particles small enough for the body’s natural lymphatic system to remove more effectively.
