You will get personalised information based on your skin type, your tattoo, your medical history and your expectations. Most importantly, this is your opportunity to ask all the questions you have. When you walk out of this free consultation you should have all the information you need to make an informed decision. If the clinic you visit does not give you a written quote and offer a tattoo removal guarantee, walk away.

The first step in tattoo removal is the consultation. Clinic staff will explain how the technology works and discuss the options available for removing or fading your tattoo. The clinic will provide you with a quote and some fact sheets about preparing for your treatment.

To get the best results from your treatment, you are advised to:

  • Avoid sun exposure and any cosmetic tanning (spray tans, self-tanning products and solariums)
  • Speak to your doctor about any medications you are taking that may impact your treatment
  • Stop smoking before and during treatment, because smoking slows healing and how quickly the pigment is removed after treatment

Some medicines are not safe to use during laser tattoo removal and you need to stop taking them 2 weeks before your treatment. The clinic will provide you with a list of medications that can cause complications, but don’t stop taking any medication without speaking to your doctor first.
