Do you wish you had never had a tattoo?
Are you looking to fade a tattoo for a new design?
Do you need to remove a tattoo to help pursue your career?
Mode Laser Skin Clinic uses the advanced active Q-Switch lasers for tattoo removal. This is the only type of laser that is safe and effective for the removal of tattoos. Our lasers can fade away tattoos of various size and colour.
Tattoos are of two main types: the Indian ink, amateur tattoo or the multi-coloured, professional tattoo. Single-colour tattoos usually respond best to laser tattoo removal. Multi-coloured professional tattoos are much more difficult to eradicate completely. Black, blue, red and green colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but yellow and purple pigment can be more difficult. Your tattoo will be assessed and, in the majority of cases, laser tattoo removal will be recommended.

Active Q-Switch Laser generates a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse and are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatment. The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defenses to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.
How the treatment is carried out?
The skin will be cleaned and the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible clicking noise is often heard as the ink particles shatter. After treatment a soothing lotion is applied.
How will the treatment feel?
Most clients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate the treatment well. A cooling device is used to reduce any discomfort. A topical anesthetic cream can be applied 30 minutes - 1 hour prior to the treatment if client has a low pain tolerance or the tattoo is in a sensitive area. Though in most cases this is unnecessary.
How will the skin look after the treatment?
An instant whitening of the skin is seen but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours. Some tattoos may form a graze, which must be left to heal naturally. Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over 4 to 8 weeks as the body disperses it. Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. Change to skin texture and scarring is possible, though very uncommon and is more likely if grazes are not allowed to heal naturally. There may be loss of natural tanning ability in the area treated, which usually improves with time.
How many sessions are required?
This depends on a number of factors such as the density and colour of the tattoo and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and can take up to 15 treatments. Treatments are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart and each treatment can take anything from 10 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo.
