Treatment: What to expect?

While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people endure Q-Switched tattoo treatment really well. We use a Cryo 6 at the same time of carrying out the tattoo treatment for skin cooling and to reduce any discomfort. The Cryo 6 blows out very low temperature air.

In determining the number of treatments necessary, the therapist will consider factors such as the ink used, the colour and is it just a cover-up or to have the tattoo removed completely.

The Q-Switched Laser advantage

Q-Switched Nd: YAG Lasers offer significant advantages over previous methods for tattoo removal and are presently the preferential treatment for tattoo removal.
