Tattoo Removal

 Laser Tattoo Removal results in the permanent removal or dramatic fading of unwanted tattoos.

Gippsland Cosmetic Laser Clinic is the first clinic in Victoria to offer treatments from the Jeisys Tri-Beam dual wavelength laser (Q-switched 1064nm and 523nm). This highly advanced technology delivers clients greater levels of comfort and significantly fewer treatment sessions than virtually all alternative tattoo removal devices. This revolutionary new laser tattoo removal technology quickly, safely and effectively removes a wide variety of tattoo colours. 

Tattoos are permanent because the ink particles deposited in the skin are too large for the body to remove. Laser Tattoo Removal works by firing a very, short pulse of laser energy over the treatment area. This incredibly rapid pulse causes fragmentation of the ink particles within the skin, making them small enough for the body’s immune cells to carry away. Significant fading can been seen even after just one session with the Tri-Beam.

This state of the art technology ensures treatments are incredibly fast. For example, a small tattoo (the size of a 50c coin) would take approximately 5-6 seconds to treat.

Follow-up treatments are performed approximately every 6-12 weeks. The number of treatments required depends on the location and colour of the tattoo, as well as the overall health of the individual and their immune system. Most tattoos will require somewhere between 5-9 sessions.

The Tri-Beam provides treatments that are far more comfortable than previous generations of laser tattoo removal machines. Anaesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment and the skin is numbed even further by super-cooled air that is directed onto the skin throughout the treatment via a specialised attachment. 

Following the treatment, patients can expect to experience some mild warmth and tingling in the area. An occlusive dressing is applied and should remain in place for 2 days before being changed. At this point clients may notice some slight crusting and occasionally bruising. They will also notice fading and blurring of the tattoo lines. 

Please note, Gippsland Cosmetic Laser Clinic provides free removal of radiation mark tattoos.
