Laser Tattoo Removal

Removing tattoos takes as much artistry as creating them.

A tattoo used to be forever, but with revolutionary state of the art laser technologies, you can now remove black or coloured tattoo ink safely and affordably. At b clinic, we use the latest PicoSure and RevLite Q-Switch laser technologies for fast and effective tattoo removal.

Rethink your ink with PicoSure and RevLite laser tattoo removal

Minimal pain. No scarring.

Tattoos deliver ink deep into your skin tissue. Once applied, tattoo ink can be very difficult to remove. Advanced Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers, however, have completely changed the game of tattoo removal.

PhotoAcoustic Technology can penetrate the skin and target each ink colour using short pulses of specific laser energy wavelengths. The result is your tattoo starts to fade over a number of treatments.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

PicoSure PressureWave technology gently delivers ultra-short energy pulses to your tattoo in a trillionth of a second, protecting the surrounding skin. It works best on fair to medium untanned skin and can treat almost all tattoos except makeup tattoos and those that show a pronounced darkening after treatment.

If you’ve ever had systemic gold treatment (orally or intravenously), you’re probably not a good candidate for PicoSure treatments.

RevLite Q-Switch technology delivers maximum success with minimal discomfort for all skin types, including darker skin tone. It features a revolutionary four light wavelengths to target multi-coloured tattoos, including those with vibrant blues, blacks, reds, oranges and purples. You’ll probably see a temporary whitening after the first treatment. Then the shattered ink particles will begin to drain away through your lymphatic system as your skin returns to its natural colour.

The Picosure 755 & 532 wavelength technology is exceptional. But by adding the QSwitch laser with a wavelength of 1064 and combining the science and technology of both lasers’ wavelengths, we can treat all skin types and most popular ink colours at b clinic. It’s the most effective tattoo removal treatment currently available in Australia.

Who Can Benefit From Laser Tattoo Removal?

During your consultation at b clinic, we’ll go through the following 8 clinical steps to accurately determine and meet ALL your tattoo removal expectations.

Diagnostic CHECKLIST

  1. Personal/medical history
  2. Realistic results and expectations
  3. Fitzpatrick skin type
  4. Tanning habits
  5. Position of tattoo
  6. Colour of tattoo
  7. Previous tattoo removal attempts
  8. Amateur or professional.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?

Patients respond to pain in various ways.

Tattoo removal treatment is often described as “like a needle prick” or a “ping from an elastic band,” which is why we use a Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system that effectively cools the skin before & during the treatment.

To further minimise discomfort, we also offer a topical anaesthetic to numb the area prior to treatment.

Will Laser Tattoo Removal Leave a Scar?

It’s very rare for laser tattoo removal to cause scarring. When performed by a trained practitioner, the risk is very low. However, removing the tattoo can reveal scarring caused by the tattooist when the ink was initially applied, or unrelated scars concealed by the tattoo.

During your consultation at b clinic, your practitioner will examine your tattoo and skin condition to identify any existing scarring before you decide to proceed with the laser tattoo removal treatment. 

Can Laser Treatment Fully Remove a Tattoo?

The majority of tattoos can be entirely removed using laser treatment.

Larger tattoos will typically require more treatments than smaller areas. The colouring of the tattoo will also impact the number of sessions necessary to remove the ink entirely. You may require a course of several tattoo removal treatments to achieve your desired results.

What can I expect?

40 minutes = 4 steps to safe and simple tattoo removal at b clinic.

  1. You’ll receive an in-depth consultation before treatment, including a skin check from one of our b clinic resident Doctors. Please note you can also provide b clinic with evidence of a skin check from your own GP or sun cancer clinic if performed within the past 12 months.
  2. We’ll ask you to lie or sit on the treatment bed and give you eye protection for your safety.
  3. We’ll perform a test patch of the tattooed area.
  4. We’ll make clinical notes – you’ll be asked to wait 20 minutes in reception, after which your clinician will reassess the treated area and determine if you are suitable for treatment.

How Many Tattoo Removal Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments required depends on the size, colour, ink used, and whether your tattoo is amateur or professional.

Through clinical observation combined with a diagnostic checklist, your clinician will explain how the treatment will work and the expected number of treatments required to remove your tattoo. This is done during your consultation when we can see your tattoo and give you the best and most accurate advice.


Aftercare information pack:

You will be given an aftercare information pack to take home after your treatment, which will contain a post-care ointment and instructions on post-care to minimise any potential post-treatment concerns.

 

Post care:

Following your treatment, ointment, gauze and a waterproof dressing will be applied to the treated area. You can remove this 4-hours post-treatment.

You’ll need to reapply the ointment regularly after you have removed your dressing for up to 10 days and keep the area protected from the sun for the entire course of your treatment to avoid pigmentation problems.

Get back in touch:

If you are having a problem with the treatment area contact us and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible for a skin review. As medically trained professionals, we’re used to seeing skin reactions and will advise you whether we believe your reaction is normal or a rare (but possible) infection.

 

Treatments start from just $75.

Costs are dependent on a few factors, including the size of your tattoo, its ink colours and the number of treatments you’ll require. We want to deliver the safest and most affordable treatments that yield the best possible results.
