Everything you need to know about colour tattoo removal
If you have a piece of coloured body art that you no longer want, you might be concerned about the reputation that coloured tattoos have for being harder to remove than black ink tattoos.
Whilst a colour tattoo is definitely trickier to remove than black, the success of your removal ultimately comes down to your skin type and the exact colours you have in your tattoo. This means that the number of treatment sessions you’ll need to remove a colour tattoo will depend on you and your tattoo.
One of the most significant factors that influence laser colour tattoo removal is the wavelength of the laser being used.
At NAAMA, our LightSense technology is the only system in the world that uses a 800mn wavelength. Why does this make a difference? Because it means that the system can remove more colours on the colour spectrum - more on this below:
Every person and every tattoo is unique, so everyone reacts differently to treatment.
What is the best way to remove coloured ink tattoos?
Laser is the safest and quickest option for any colour tattoo removal. However, your aftercare routine is equally important as the procedure itself as good aftercare will help your skin heal quicker.
Our golden rules for laser tattoo removal aftercare here at NAAMA are:
Keep your medical-grade dressing on for 72 hours post treatment.
Avoid exposing the treated area to the sun during the first few days afterwards.
Keep the area well moisturised using our specially formulated aftercare creams.
Avoid intense exercise, steam rooms, saunas, and hot baths for 72 hours.
Don’t do anything that could irritate your skin, such as waxing, exfoliating, tweezing, or threading until the area has healed.
