Consultant dermatologist Dr. Fiona Worsnop walks you through the removal journey
How ink fades throughout the process
The examples below are current customer images and have been captured over 5 months.
These high magnification shots allow us to see beyond the surface, and closely monitor tattoo removal progress.
Action happens below the skin, with large ink particles being broken down.
To the naked eye, the tattoo remains the same.
The tattoo begins to blur and become fuzzy around the edges.
Thinner areas fade, dense areas (for now) remain intact.
The tattoo loses its form; dense areas are visible but light areas fade fast.
Coloured inks and lighter blacks remove entirely.
Colour change may occur (this is a usually a great sign).
The tattoo continues getting lighter, with more and more skin showing through.
Cover ups and very dense blacks take some time (the body is processing vast amounts of ink).
The ink removes completely, leaving skin smooth and clear.
