How does it work?
If you have a tattoo that you regret, laser removal is a safe and effective way to remove those unwanted tattoos. Not all lasers are the same and not just any laser can safely remove tattoos. The Lynton Clinic in Cheadle, Cheshire has the most advanced active Q-Switch lasers – the only type of laser that is clinically effective for tattoo removal.
Tattoos are made of two main types: The Indian ink amateur tattoo or the multi-coloured professional tattoo. Certain colours of ink are easier to treat i.e. black,dark blue, red, orange, brown colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but, yellow, purple, pastel colours and fleshy toned pigment can be more difficult.
Here at The Lynton Clinic in Stockport, we have not 1, but 2 Q-Switch lasers, therefore you can rest assured that regardless of the tattoo colour we have the most suitable laser for you.
Thank you so much to all the staff at The Lynton Clinic. My Tattoo Removal treatment and the way I was taken care of, by all the staff was first class. I wish I had found the clinic sooner. Best wishes and kind regards.
From the moment I walked into reception, to the time spent in the treatment room, I was well looked after. I am so pleased with the results of my treatment, my tattoo has vanished. Now I have the confidence to wear summer tops! You all do an excellent job!
I cannot thank The Lynton Clinic enough. You have looked after me so so much and my awful tattooed eyebrows are almost gone. I would highly recommend the lovely team at The Lynton Clinic. Thank you so much!
You will need a treatment around once every 6-8 weeks and a course of 8-12 treatments is usually needed. The treatment itself usually takes between 10 and 30 minutes
The area can feel tender and swollen for around 48 hours after treatment and if any blisters and grazes form, they usually heal within 7-10 days.
An instant whitening of the ink is seen but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours. Bleeding may occur at the time of the treatment, but this is usually light and a dressing will be applied. Some tattoos may form a graze or blister which must be left to heal naturally. Some people do experience a lightening or darkening of the treated skin, although in most cases this returns to normal after a few months. Change to skin texture and scarring is possible, though very uncommon and is more likely if grazes or blisters are not allowed to heal naturally.
Most clients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst the treatment can be quite uncomfortable, most people tolerate the treatment well. We also use a skin cooling device to reduce discomfort.
If the tattoo is one of the easy colours to treat (black, blue, red and green colours) then we reduce it to the point where it almost looks gone. We say typically not 100% but 90-95% so that when looking at it you would never know it was a tattoo, you couldn’t depict the outline or wording, but you would still see a tiny bit of ink that could look like the last bits of a bruise. With the trickier colours (light colours such as yellow, flesh tones, or purple and pastel colours) the fading will be less and is more variable.
Our advanced Q-switch technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system. It usually takes several treatment sessions to ensure success, with regular intervals between sessions.
Yes! We are lucky enough here to have a ruby laser which produces red light and works very well on blue and green ink. We treat alot of people for green and blue ink because there are not many around
The answer is yes we can. We commonly work on eyebrows that have had cosmetic tattoos with a very good outcome. We work round the hairs and people find in just a few treatments they can see a good fade. We don't treat eyeliner at all as it is too close to the eye, and we don't treat lip liner much as it often changes colour instantly to a dark grey colour, which is not very desirable.
