Laser Tattoo Removal Sydney NSW

Get rid of unwanted tattoos with laser tattoo removal

The doctors at Áda Aesthetic Medicine have been removing tattoos with laser for over 25 years. The Q-switched Ruby and Q- switched Nd:YAG lasers are both used at our clinic to remove unwanted body tattoos and “cosmetic tattoos”.

How successful is laser tattoo removal?

Complete removal or significant fading of the tattoo colour can be achieved without scarring in over 95% of cases.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Laser light is a nanosecond energy pulse that is selectively absorbed by the ink particles in a tattoo, shattering them into smaller particles.  These shattered particles can then be collected by your immune cells and removed harmlessly through the lymph system in your skin.

How many treatments will it take?

Treatment response will depend on several factors, especially the ink colour and type of ink used and also the depth of ink, scarring from tattooing and your skin type. Because it is reliant on so many factors it is not possible to reliably predict the number of treatment sessions required. Black is the most responsive and all other colours are generally slower and less predictable to remove. For example, an amateur black tattoo may need 2-6 sessions but a professional tattoo may take 6-12 treatment sessions or more.

Is laser treatment painful?

Some people with higher pain tolerance and small tattoos may not need any local anaesthetic. Most will need a local or topical anaesthetic to be able to treat at appropriate settings to get the best response. Low energy settings may not hurt as much but will not remove much ink meaning you will need more treatments, costing you more time and money in the long run.

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

The price of laser tattoo removal will vary depending on tattoo size and the time needed. Our doctors will assess your needs and provide you with a quote.

Who will do my laser treatments?

At Áda Aesthetic Medicine, our experienced laser doctors do all consultations and laser treatments. No ‘laser technicians’ or nurses are used at Áda clinics.

Cosmetic Tattoo Removal

Cosmetic tattooing of eyebrows, eyeliner and lips may need to be removed for various reasons including incorrect colour, wrong shape or area, “smudging of ink” or allergy to the tattoo ink.
