Keely Dewhirst had amazing removal results in a short space of time. Here is her story.
I'm Keely, I’m 31 and I'm a buyer for TK Maxx. I live in Hamilton, just outside of London. I'm actually a northern girl at heart but moved out when graduated.
The tattoo I’m having removed was something that a group of us got when we were younger. It is thick and black and I wanted it to be as big and as bold as possible because I was 18! I liked it for a few years and then actually I just kind of outgrew the design. After a while, it stopped me from wearing things. I felt a lot more self-conscious in my job wearing certain clothes. And that's what made me realise maybe it was time to do something about it.
I was always nervous about tattoo removal. I have wanted to get this tattoo removed for the last five years. Actually a friend who is a tattoo artist recommended this new technology (LightSense™) so I thought I'd just come and give it a try. From the first day I came here, I felt comfortable. It can be a daunting experience but it's been amazing. Everyone's just so friendly and welcoming. So I don't dread coming back.

The process itself is quick. I almost didn't believe I'd be able to come back every two weeks because obviously traditional removal takes a lot longer than that, but it's true. I think the aftercare is great. All of the instructions that you get are really clear, they check in with you after too. I know if I have a problem, I can just call and get help over the phone, everyone puts you at ease. I've never felt nervous or scared.
I did find it painful, but I wouldn't say it's anything you can't handle. I find things like listening to music is great because you can zone out and the more sessions you have, the less it hurts. To anyone considering getting a tattoo, really think about what you are getting, but if you do make a mistake, NAAMA is the right place to come to!
Now that it’s almost gone, it's amazing. I just didn't believe it was going to happen. And now I don't have to think about what I'm going to wear or what people might think because it's gone. It's worth it, for sure.

At the start of treatment
The tattoo begins to blur. More dense areas remain intact, but thinner areas are fading.
The tattoo loses its form, lighter blacks disappear.
