Do you have a tattoo you now regret?
DD Clinical offers the award winning medical graded laser machine which can be used to successfully diminish unwanted dark and multi-coloured tattoos. The Harmony Pro XL is safe, effective and uses a combination of laser wavelengths that target different ink colours. The high-intensity light beams break up the ink particles in the tattoo, revealing clear, ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
How does tattoo removal work?
Tattoo ink is seen as a foreign body in the skin layer and as the particles are too big for the body to remove as a toxin they stay in the body as a tattoo. Laser light targets the pigment in the ink that causes photo acoustic fragmentation of the ink particles allowing the particles to be broken down therefore are drained out of the body through the lymphatic system.
What can I expect after 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 become blistered or bruised after treatment and could take up to 6 weeks to fully heal. Our laser specialist at DD Clinical will discuss aftercare with you.
Does it hurt?
The treatment may be uncomfortable, the sensation is similar to that of getting a tattoo. Numbing cream can be applied prior to your visit which you can buy over the counter at any pharmacy.
What is the cost of treatment?
Prices starts from £40 – £250 per session depending on the size of the tattoo. Courses are available. We offer a FREE consultation with one of our laser specialists who will be able to tell you how many treatments you will require for optimum results.
