Effective Tattoo Removal in Singapore
How is tattoo removal done?
Our doctor uses a medical-grade, precise laser to significantly lighten or remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into smaller fragments which are then absorbed by your body’s immune system.
Bigger tattoos generally take a longer time to treat because you need to undergo more sessions to break the ink fragments down.
Each session can last between 10 and 30 minutes.
Depending on individual, tattoo removal can take from weeks to months for complete removal of tattoo.
What do we use for tattoo removal?
SpectraXT uses a combination of high peak power and short pulse width to effectively destroy the tattoo ink, with minimal damage to the surrounding skin. It reduces common side effects related to laser tattoo removal such as swelling, redness and pain.
Using the latest multi-platform system, we can effectively remove tattoos of black, blue, orange, green and red colours with minimal pain and discomfort.
Alternatively, Pico Laser is one of the best-in-class laser treatments for removing tattoo. Although Pico Laser is known for its remarkable capability for skin rejuvenation, its main strength lies in its ability to shatter pigment tattoo ink particles effectively as compared to other traditional lasers.
What result can I expect after the treatment?
Your skin will have some white discolouration immediately after the treatment. You will notice that the treated area will become slightly red and swollen. This is normal and it should resolve in a few days. 5 weeks after the treatment, you will notice that the tattoo will become lighter and less visible.
Post-treatment care is important. Apply antibacterial ointment to the treated area to minimise infection.
Any side effects?
Some whitening or discolouration may be observed after the treatment. This may last for a few months. The treated area should go back to the normal skin tone about 6 months after the treatment.
How many treatments are required to remove tattoo completely?
The number of treatments you require depends on several factors: Colour, size and depth of tattoo. Each treatment should be performed about 4 weeks apart to allow the body to break down the pigments naturally before the next session.
