Every colour of ink requires a different wavelength of light and amount of energy to be efficiently removed.
ClearLift is a high-powered Q-switched laser that can operate 2 different wavelengths to be effective with darker colours, brighter colours like red and orange.

The treatment breaks down the ink particles without causing damage to the skin. This is achieved by a Photo-Acoustic effect created by the impact of the laser energy delivered with very short pulses to the targeted ink. Over time, your body’s natural healing processes (the lymphatic system) removes the ink fragments from your body. This allows your tattoo to fade with only minimal risks of scarring or skin discolouration.

The amount of sessions needed very dependant on the size, age and type of ink used however we usually recommend a minimum of 8 sessions 8 weeks apart.

Treatment prices vary depending on the size of the tattoo, however prices start from £45.

Additional savings can be made when purchasing a course of treatment.

There will be redness and swelling and a white frosting over the tattoo straight after treatment. This is perfectly normal and indicates the treatment has picked up the ink. The area may then scab over and could take up to 2weeks to fully heal.

  • Keep the treated area clean and dry
  • If there is any discomfort apply an ice pack or cool clean cloth to sooth the area
  • The aesthetician may provide a dressing after the treatment and will give advice as to how long to keep this on the area
  • Make sure clothes are not rubbing the treated area
  • Do not expose the treated area to heat such as hot baths after treatment
  • Swimming should be avoided until the area is fully healed
  • Do not scratch the skin treated, if scabs form these must not be picked, or secondary infection is possible.
  • Do not expose the treated area to direct sun exposure or sun beds. If going out in the sun cover the area with a sterile dressing
  • Do not use occlusive dressings or creams on the area
