Tattoo Laser removal is done by using lasers that break down the ink particles which is then fought off by the immune system, mimicking natural fading or sun exposure.

Laser Clinic Cape Town
Tattoo Removal

Q switched Nd: Yag ACTIVE laser : 8 – 10 sessions are required; 6 – 8 week intervals between each session; BLACK INK ONLY; minimal to no scarring visible: non invasive procedure; very quick and effective. This specific ACTIVE Yag head has proven to be more intensive than the standard yag head – in certain cases( age and location of tattoo) up to +/-45% of the ink is removed in 1 session with no scarring evident as it breaks up the ink without severely opening the skin.

Laser Clinic Cape Town
Tattoo Removal

Option 1 – Ultra pulse CO2 laser (Exclusive to Laser Clinic)- the latest in effective tattoo removal. The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser is a micro surgical laser beam. This laser has a very definite and precise beam which vapourises the tissues of the skin. In treating the tattoo both the skin and ink is removed layer by layer. Due to the vapourising effect of the laser the skin beneath is left in tact (no stitches required)where no excessive bleeding occurs resulting in a quick healing and recovery time. After the 1st session up to 30%+/- of the tattoo is removed, there will be a clear yellowish fluid( plasma) that will be evident over the scabbing – the treated area should be covered with paraffin gauze when at work etc, but left open to dry out when at home. The area can be cleaned daily with a salt water solution. Scabbing forms over the area after 2 -4 days(how quickly it forms depends on location and depth of the treatment) this scabbing then flakes off a few weeks later revealing

Pricing? Cost? How important are these factors regarding your Tattoo Removal

Our team often gets asked this question. “How important is price and cost” when it comes time to decide on your Tattoo Removal and the surgeon who will be performing it. The answer? Well I wish it was an easy one. The fact of the matter is simply because a surgeon who’s Tattoo Removal cost is extremely high does not necessarily guarantee good results. The same applies when going with a “cheaper surgeon” so to speak, it doesn’t mean you will receive a poor outcome, no, not at all. Example of this would be the ever popular plastic surgery holidays, where patients travel abroad to more cost effective destinations for plastic surgery like the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Thailand to name a few. The truth? We have seen thousands of extremely happy patients return from cheaper plastic surgery locations and do so without having to take a loan out to pay for their Tattoo Removal. The key? Do your research! We really cannot emphasize this enough, read as many Tattoo Removal reviews as possible, compare prices and cost and through this put yourself in the best position possible to make an informed decision.

At Plastic Surgery review we believe reviews hold the key as past patient reviews help build a picture of what to expect when that day finally arrives. The fact that these reviews are actually past patient experiences goes a long way to help resolve a lot of the “questions” that constantly float in and out of our minds without having to actually ask the surgeon themselves. Whether you ultimately to decide to go through with a Tattoo Removal or not, we always encourage interested parties to read as many Tattoo Removal reviews as possible.
