What Is Tattoo Removal?
With an estimated 45% of today’s adults getting their first tattoo between the ages of 18 and 25, it’s no surprise some regrets are experienced later down the line.
The demand for tattoo removal has significantly increased in recent years, with many either wanting mistakes corrected or entire tattoos removed altogether.
Here at The Doctors Laser Clinic, we use the cutting-edge Harmony XL Pro Medical Grade Laser to ensure maximum effect. Capable of removing even the most stubborn of ink, the laser technology we use has the power to safely eliminate the appearance of tattoo ink within the skin, resulting in a uniform, clear appearance once more.
How Does It Work?
Once administered to the tattoo area, the Harmony XL Pro laser successfully breaks down the ink’s pigment into tiny fragments. Over time, these fragments are disposed of by the body’s immune system, resulting in lighter skin and a significantly reduced tattoo appearance.
Due to the varying wavelengths of light the Harmony XL Pro is able to produce, tattoos of multiple colours are able to be removed in addition to typical black ink.

What Can I Expect?
Whilst tattoo removal is considered less painful than actually getting a tattoo, we’d be lying if we said it was entirely painless. But, to reduce feelings of discomfort as much as possible, we’ll apply a numbing cream before treatment begins if necessary.
The practitioner will pass the laser over the tattoo’s surface – treatment length will considerably vary dependent on tattoo size. During treatment, you’re likely to feel a pricking sensation.
When it comes to tattoo removal, what you do after treatment is of paramount importance. You must not expose the treatment area to the sun and, if you know you’re likely to be under the influence of UV rays, ensure to apply a high-factor SPF at all times.
Skin may feel sensitive directly after the procedure, with redness and scabbing likely to occur.
A number of treatment sessions are likely to be needed to eliminate the tattoo completely from your skin. Generally, 6-10 treatments are often enough, but this will highly depend on both the size and ink composition of the tattoo itself.
