HOW DOES TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
A Q-Switch, ND Yag, Tattoo Removal machine produces pulses of light that are directed on to the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. The broken pieces of tattoo pigment are then absorbed as waste material through the bloodstream and eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system, urinary system and sweat glands.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR THE TATTOO TO BE GONE?
The number of laser treatments required to remove a tattoo depends on the colours, quality and depth of the tattoo ink and type of ink. Typically treatments require 6-8 treatments, however, in some clients, more treatments sessions are needed. Procedures can be performed every 6-8 weeks, depending on skin type and reaction.
Predicting the number of treatments necessary for tattoo removal is very difficult. Also, the response difference from one client to another involves the efficiency of his or her immune system.

Microneedling is the process of a DermaPen or Dermal Stamp using multiple needles to pierce the skin and create a controlled skin injury to stimulate collagen reproduction. When Hylauronic acid is applied to the skin during the needling process, it allows a deeper delivery of the product to ‘feed’ cells in the dermis and basal layer of the skin. This process stimulates the cells to repair and rejuvenate and the hyaluronic acid encourages the cells to retain moisture, resulting in firmer healthier looking skin.
Dermal Needling is ideal for clients with scars, fine lines, wrinkles and large pores.
Recommended treatment times:
Skin Rejuvenation – 4-6 times (four weeks apart)
Scars – 6 treatments (6 weeks apart)
Not Suitable for:
- Clients on acne drugs
- No open cuts or wounds
- No radiation treatments less than 1 year prior
- No skin infections
- History of poor wound healing/keloid scarring
** For optimal results the client should be on a course of Flaxseed Oil, Vitamin D and Zinc vitamins to be taken orally at least 4 weeks prior to Dermal Needling to aid in the strengthening of the skin. Also a skin regime of Vitamin A and C creams are recommended to use approximately four weeks prior to Dermal Needling to strengthen the skin. The topical vitamin creams must be stopped 3 days prior to treatment and resumed approximately 4 days after. You will require a thorough consultation with your therapist prior to treatment.
