Tattoo Removal in Sydney
We believe taking care of your skin is the foundation of long-lasting beauty. This is why we offer our clients more than just clinical therapies. We also offer cosmetic treatments to help you achieve your aesthetic goals, including tattoo removal in Sydney. Using advanced laser technology, we can remove your previous body art without harming your skin. You’ll be left with beautiful, healthy skin that looks like it was never tattooed in the first place.
Revealing Your Original Beauty
With our medical grade lasers, we can fully eliminate the appearance of ink on your skin without causing damage. As long as you follow your aftercare instructions, it is very unlikely there will be any scarring. Even if you have a large, colourful tattoo, at Amirova, we have the experience to gently break up the ink particles, until you are left with your skin’s natural appearance.
The leading lasers on the market today are capable of targeting a specific area while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The light energy from the laser will shatter the ink particles in your tattoo. These particles break up into tiny micro particles, which are then naturally filtered out of your body by your immune system.
How Many Tattoo Removal Treatments Are Necessary?
How many treatment sessions you will need depends on the size of your tattoo and the colours involved. Generally, darker colours like black and dark blue are easier to remove. Brighter shades such as greens, yellows and fluorescents tend to require more treatments. Your body’s own ability to eliminate the ink particles will also influence the number of treatments necessary.
Most of our clients require between 6 and 15 sessions. When you come in for a consultation, we will be able to assess how long it may take to completely remove your tattoo. We’ll also answer any of your questions and discuss options such as only removing part of the tattoo and tailoring your laser tattoo removal experience to fit your aesthetic objectives.
In order to allow time for your body to detoxify the ink particles, we recommend leaving at least six weeks between sessions. This means it can take several months before your tattoo is completely removed. However, with each treatment, the ink will fade until it eventually isn’t visible at all.
What to Expect During Each Session
You don’t need to do anything before arriving for your tattoo removal appointment. Each session won’t take long. It usually takes us less than 30 minutes to complete a treatment. We offer an optional numbing cream to diminish any pain you may experience during each treatment. If you’d like to use a numbing cream, you’ll arrive earlier than your appointment time so the cream can be applied to your skin well before treatment.
Laser tattoo removal can feel unpleasant and even painful, depending on your own individual threshold for pain. At Amirova, we use a cooling system to make you feel more comfortable. The actual duration of the laser treatment can be as short as a few minutes so any discomfort will be short-lived.
After each session, you may notice that your skin appears whitish. This is a normal part of the healing process. The frost-like appearance usually fades within a few minutes. You may also experience redness and swelling, which will go away after a few hours. Some patients will also notice minor scabbing or blistering for a few days. This will clear up within a week or two and is nothing to worry about. You’ll want to keep your skin protected from direct sunlight while it heals and also minimise excessive heat exposure, such as hot tubs or very hot showers.
If you take good care of your skin, your body will do the rest of the work, eliminating the ink particles naturally and healing until you’re left with your original, beautiful skin.
