How does laser tattoo REMOVAL work?
Lasers are intense beams of light and our machine is designed to target the pigment of your tattoo ink. The high amount of energy contained in the laser beam vibrates the ink particles until they break apart into tiny particles. This action allows the body's immune system to dispose of the ink via the lymphatic system, causing the tattoo to fade and over time, disappear.
How many TREATMENTs will it take remove my tattoo?
This is the question of the day.
The answer depends on several factors such as the age of the tattoo, the color, the quality of tattoo (home job or professional), age of the client, general health.
On average you will be looking at 5 - 10 sessions, but every case is different. During your consultation we can asses your tattoo and give you our honest and professional opinion on the number of treatments you require.
Just remember, Laser is not a magic eraser. Please approach the tattoo removal process with patience. With time, laser and patience almost anything is possible.
whAT ABOUT POST CARE?
Similar to when you get a new tattoo, you have to follow post care procedure. Check out out pre/post care page on the website.
is it safe?
Yes, all the staff at White Rabbit are certified laser technicians.
White Rabbit is also proud to be using the MedLite C6, the original Q-Switched laser from ConBio which has long been known as the industry’s gold standard laser for multi-coloured tattoo removal.
does it hurt?
yes. It hurts.
The process is typically described as feeling like snapping a rubber band on the skin over and over. If you went through the experience of having a reciprocating needle inserted into your skin repeatedly when you got the tattoo in the first place, you’ll probably be able to handle the discomfort of laser removal. Clients describe the lingering sensation as similar to a burn or blister.
At White Rabbit we use The Cryo 6 for efficient pain treatment during and after treatment. Skin cooling with cold air from the Cryo 6 minimises pain and thermal injury during your laser treatment.
A topical anesthetic (numbing cream) can be applied to ensure that no discomfort is felt before and during the treatment. Make sure you let us know if you have used any numbing cream. Please make sure you follow the instructions given by your chosen topical anesthetic.
how much does it cost?
This depends on the size of the tattoo you want removed.
Our prices start at $80.
what can i expect after treatment?
You may notice a frosted appearance immediately after treatment. This is a result of tiny gas bubbles that make the skin appear white or chalky colored. This fades in approximately 20 minutes. You will have some mild redness and swelling over the tattoo which will usually resolve over several hours. There may be some small blisters or pinpoint bleeding, which we can be covered with a non adherent dressing.
