AFFORDABLE TATTOO REMOVAL MELBOURNE – ARMADALE CLINIC

Decorative tattoos have a history dating back at least 5000 years. The desire to remove them has probably existed for just as long. If the current scenario is anything to go by, more than half the world’s population has gotten a tattoo at some point in their lives. Considering this number, the amount of people wanting to get rid of their tattoos is sure to be high. A study conducted stated that three in ten Australians have experienced tattoo regret and at least one in ten have, at some point, have looked for tattoo removal options.

While early attempts at tattoo removal have had less than desirable results with dermabrasion, salabrasion and Argon or C02 lasers leaving behind scars in place of the tattoo, the advent of Q switched pulsed lasers has made tattoo removal a far more effective procedure, permitting the removal of most tattoo inks with a very low risk of scarring.

Who Can Undergo Tattoo Removal?

The best part about tattoo removal treatments is that everyone can consider it. While there are some shades and hues that are slow to respond to certain procedures or refuse to budge, your suitability for the procedure can be determined by an initial consultation with our aestheticians.

By analysing your tattoos, your health condition, and other relevant factors, we will be able to determine how well you would respond to the treatment we offer.

Tattoo Removal in Melbourne Using Laser Procedures

Over the years, laser treatment has become the most frequently used procedure for tattoo removal by clinics in Melbourne, and even across the world. One of the reasons why it is thus recommended is its ability to target only the ink on the skin without damaging the skin. The recent innovations of laser technology for tattoo removal have evolved to an extent where every kind of ink can be targeted by setting the frequency of the laser to break down those ink particles. Further, laser equipment also ensure that they affect no other part of the skin and leave no scars behind.

Once the ink particles are broken down, they are eliminated by the body naturally.

Laser Tattoo Removal Using PicoSure Pro Laser at Cosmetic Skin Doctors Clinic

The PicoSure Pro laser is yet another technology that makes tattoo removal easier. The 755nm wavelength is able to target black, blue, and green tattoo inks. You’ll also be able to:

  • Tailor treatments using variable spot sizes
  • Use turbo mode to better treat recalcitrant tattoos with shortened pulse width

PicoSure Pro can significantly lighten or remove many tattoo inks. It is particularly advanced in the removal of blue, black and red inks. The PicoSure Pro laser removes tattoo ink with the energy of light. Just as natural sunlight is made up of light wavelengths of many colours, a laser is designed to produce one or more specific wavelengths of light. These wavelengths are either absorbed, reflected or simply passed through objects.

It is also one of the only few procedures for tattoo removal that are non-invasive and non-scarring. Apart from tattoo removal, the laser can also be used to treat skin problems like pigmentation, lesions, fine lines, and more.

At Cosmetic Skin Doctors Clinic, we are committed to analysing, consulting, and treating every patient with the aim to provide exceptional results. Our practitioners are skilled and equipped to carry out laser tattoo removal treatments with the utmost care while reducing every chance of scarring or infection.

FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS THE TATTOO REMOVAL PROCESS PAINFUL?

The laser emits light in very short flashes of light called pulses. The impact of the energy from this powerful pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. A large majority of patients do not require anaesthesia.

CAN A NEWLY APPLIED TATTOO BE REMOVED?

Yes, you can get a newly applied tattoo removed. However, it is essential to wait until the area has healed completely. Once you have been tattooed, the upper layer of skin sheds and is renewed over the next week or two. You will need to wait until the skin has renewed before we begin a tattoo removal procedure at our Melbourne clinic.
You may, however, visit for a consultation to understand your options during this time.

WHAT ARE THE FACTORS THAT AFFECT TATTOO REMOVAL?

Tattoo removal can take a number of sessions depending on multiple factors. These sessions last about 5 to 20 minutes and are spread over a couple of weeks to allow for an effective treatment. These include:

  • The size of the tattoo
  • The area tattooed
  • The ink colours used
  • The depth and intensity of the pigment
  • The skin condition

With the best tattoo removal clinic in Melbourne, you can expect great results.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE TATTOO REMOVAL?

After a laser tattoo removal procedure at our Melbourne clinic, the tattoo may appear white and slightly raised. You can also expect some redness around the area that has been treated and a little pinpoint bleeding. A cream and dressing will be applied to the treated area, which will need to be kept dry for the next 24 hours.
Exposing the treated area to sunlight should be avoided. You must also keep from picking at scabs. Once the dressing has been taken off, you will need to apply an ointment every day on the treated area until it heals and the scabs fall off.
The area will take about 1 to 3 weeks to heal, or more in certain cases.

WHAT TYPE OF POST TREATMENT CARE IS NECESSARY?

Usually there will be pinpoint bleeding associated with tattoo removal treatment. An antibacterial ointment and dressing is applied. The treated area should be kept clean with continued application of the ointment given to you by your physician. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated areas should not be scrubbed. Tattoo ink is removed by using a specific wavelength which passes through the skin but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to destruct, where it is then removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. The Q switched pulsed laser also delivers the light in very short, high intensity pulses for maximum ink destruction. The use of this specific combination of wavelength and rapidly pulsed light for tattoo removal results in minimal damage to the skin while removing maximum possible amount of ink.

WILL THE TATTOO COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR?

In many cases, yes. Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. However, it is very important to know that over 100 tattoo inks are in use worldwide today, none of which are regulated by the FDA. Not knowing which tattoo ink, how deep or how much was used, makes it impossible for the physician to predict the degree of tattoo removal in any given case.

DO ALL COLOURS OF INK DISAPPEAR EQUALLY WELL?

No. Dark (blue/black) inks and red inks fade the best. Oranges and purples usually respond well. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, although additional treatments can produce significant fading.

HOW MANY TREATMENT SESSIONS WILL TATTOO REMOVAL TAKE?

On average, professional tattoos require 5-6 treatments, while amateur tattoos may require 3-4 treatments. Each treatment should be spaced approximately one month apart. The number of tattoo removal treatments depends on the amount and type of ink in the skin. Rarely, more than ten treatments may be needed.

HOW MUCH WILL A LASER TATTOO REMOVAL COST?

Your tattoo removal Melbourne cost will depend entirely on the size of the tattoo, colours, and its age. Certain tattoos may require additional sessions than normal to be completely removed.
