It seemed like such a fun idea at the time. The giant Minnie Mouse tattoo was a reflection of your quirky personality when you were 21. But now you spend your evenings Googling tattoo removal!
Because now you’re 35 with two kids and a school run to do before suiting up for the office. That Minnie Mouse tattoo now acts as a constant reminder that wearing dresses in a professional environment while parading your 21-year-old choices, may not work. So what are your options?
Choosing a Tattoo Removal Option
The art of tattoo removal has progressed in line with demand. In the past, your options included: covering up a tattoo with another tattoo, tattoo fading with saline, painful dermabrasion, suspect creams, and Intense Pulsed Light Therapy.
The development of laser tattoo removal has proven to be the least painful, quickest, and most effective method. Many skin clinics offer a range of these services, but how do you ensure that they are qualified to perform the procedure?
Would you let your hairdresser do your root canal?
For the same reason you wouldn’t take your car to the garden center to be fixed, laser tattoo removal should only be performed by a qualified doctor or a licensed cosmetic physician.
Thus far, Western Australia and Queensland are the only states in Australia where the technology is regulated.
In Western Australia, the use of class 3B and 4 lasers are regulated by the Radiological Council of Western Australia, which only allows medical practitioners to use the technology.
The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency is expected to formulate a national strategy in the coming years. Until then, the majority of the industry remains unregulated.
Why Choose a Professional?
An average tattoo takes between 5-20 sessions to remove depending on the age, colour, and quality of your ink and whether it was a professional or homemade job. This represents an investment of your time and money. So why not make sure you get it right the first time around.
Our Q Switched laser is designed with the principal purpose of tattoo removal and fading, to ensure you get results. Our licensed professionals have extensive experience with the removal and fading of a wide variety of tattoos including names, symbols, designs, and sleeves.
The fading of tattoos for re-colouring is also very popular. The laser can precisely target the ink in your tattoo with minimal pain or side effects. The skin is not broken, and the procedure can be performed in short appointments. It is common to experience some swelling and sensitivity.
