Laser and Non-Laser Tattoo Removal
If you get a bad cosmetic tattoo and want to remove it, I have two effective methods – Laser Tattoo Removal and Rejuvi Tattoo Remover.
On your first visit, you will receive a free of charge consultation explaining the entire cosmetic tattoo removal process. The cost and estimated number of treatments to fade or remove your cosmetic tattoo will be provided. Immediately following the consultation you may have the opportunity to begin your first treatment but this is entirely up to you.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Lasers remove tattoos by penetrating the skin and breaking up the ink into tiny particles. After several treatments (with regular intervals between sessions), the body breaks down and removes the pigment in the tattoo, causing it to fade.
How Do I Know Tattoo Removal Is Suitable For Me?
Laser tattoo removal may not be suitable for you if you have a dark skin tone; this is due to the potential of the treatment leaving a ‘ghosting’ effect, where the skin is lighter than the surrounding area. I can assess your tattoo and determine which solution is most appropriate in a free consultation. In some cases, the most appropriate form of removal for a tattoo could be non-laser Rejuvi tattoo removal.

The Kirby-Desai tool was developed to help estimate the number of treatments needed for full tattoo removal.
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?
No method of tattoo removal is completely pain-free. Laser tattoo removal has been likened to the feeling of having a rubber band repeatedly snapped against the skin. Others describe it as a rapid succession of sharp pinpricks, or a warm, prickly sensation. Because a lot of energy is needed in order for the laser to break up the ink particles under your skin, this treatment can be uncomfortable for some people. Your skin will also need 4-8 weeks to recover between treatments.
Is Tattoo Removal Safe?
Yes, it’s safe. The laser energy is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink only, meaning that surrounding tissues are not affected and there is no lasting damage to the skin or hair.
Why Laser tattoo removal fails
Green and yellow are difficult pigments for the lasers to eliminate due to the fact that they reflect most of the light energy. As all pigments can be traced back to the three primary colours; red, yellow and blue, it becomes clear that remaining pigment elements can be difficult if not impossible for lasers to totally eliminate.
How does Rejuvi tattoo removal treatment work?
Rejuvi tattoo removal involves using an inorganic chemical remover developed by Rejuvi Laboratory California, which is applied in the same way as the original tattoo.
The Rejuvi tattoo removal system is a unique method of tattoo ink extraction which is designed to completely remove the tattoo ink pigments from the body. The treatment has been extensively researched, developed and tested for over 25 years, and has been in use worldwide for over 20 years. The removal formula is delivered to the ink using a permanent make-up machine. The extraction cream is specifically designed to blend with and capture the original tattoo ink.
The extraction cream is specifically designed to blend with and capture the original tattoo ink. The formula then forms into a thicker substance which the skin easily pushes out taking the captured tattoo ink with it. A typical tattoo removal can be achieved in 1-4 treatments. Each treatment is usually spaced 4-8 weeks apart. After the treatment course is finished the skin should return to its natural state over a period of a month or two.
Rejuvi is effective on all tattoo colours. The treatment is not color selective (unlike laser) and acts on all color pigments equally.
It is important not to confuse the Rejuvi tattoo removal system with any other method of tattoo removal. The Rejuvi treatment can only be administered by a trained tattoo or permanent makeup artist.
