The Blog Vanishing Ink 

Do you, like many others, have regrets about an old tattoo? You’re not alone. That’s why the tattoo removal industry has boomed in recent years, offering a solution to those embarrassing reminders of past relationships or drunken holidays that resulted in a permanent tattoo!

Q-switch lasers use nanosecond, photo-acoustic technology to shatter the ink particles in your tattoo, which are then digested by immune cells in our body and carried away by our lymphatic system. The result? Scar-less, tattoo free skin.  

So, how does it feel? Well, I’m not gonna lie, discomfort level is probably on the higher end of the spectrum so make sure to use a topical local anaesthetic before your treatment. Some clinics will apply this for you as part of your treatment. Once this takes effect you will hardly feel a thing (phew). 

How many sessions will you need? You’ll need up to ten sessions to completely remove a tattoo so be prepared for a pinch to the old pocket, however a lot of clinics offer heavily discounted packages when you purchase all your sessions upfront, saving you a stack! Yay, more money for other fun activities. 

How much will it set you back? Depending on the size of your tattoo it could cost anything from $100 per session right up to $1000 per session (single price). The latter being for the big whoppers like a full back tattoo. 

Is tattoo removal right for me? Yes, if you want scar less, effective tattoo removal. 

And, tattoo removal isn’t just for the reformed tattoo lovers, a lot of people remove older style tattoos that they just don’t love anymore to make way for new, updated, more modern works of art. Book today for a complimentary consultation and get started on your tattoo removal journey.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
