What To Expect Before Laser Tattoo Removal

What to expect before tattoo removal sydneyYour first session of laser tattoo removal can be a bit daunting. You may have heard that laser tattoo removal can be painful which can cause some anxiety. At Eden Tattoo Removal, in Sydney, we have invested in the most advanced technology to give you the best, fastest and least painful treatment available.

In this article we discuss what to expect before your laser tattoo removal so you can get the best results and feel relaxed and assured about your treatment.



Before you book an appointment for laser tattoo removal, it’s really important to have a one-on-one consultation with a certified and trained tattoo removal expert. They will assess your skin, your skin type, the tattoo and colours used and explain how the laser works.

After assessing your tattoo and asking you some questions, the clinician will be able to give you a quote and tell you how many sessions are required. This is your opportunity to ask questions and let them know what you are wanting to achieve – some people want complete removal, whereas others just want to fade their tattoo as they are planning on doing a cover-up.


Winter is a great time for laser tattoo removal as you need to avoid sun exposure before and after each treatment. You’ll also need to put the fake tan on hold during treatment.

Some medications can impact laser tattoo removal to it’s best to discuss them with your clinician and speak to your doctor about any medications (prescription and non-prescription) that you are taking.

You should also stop smoking during treatment as this will help your immune system to clear the ink particles from your system.



When comparing different lasers, different clinics and different pricing structures, it can be difficult to work out which one is best. To make it easy, we’ve written an article comparing the cost of the PicoWay and other NanoSecond lasers, you can read the article here: The Cost of Laser Tattoo Removal – PicoWay Vs NanoSecond.

  • Fewer treatments – FDA cleared for a wide range of tattoos, PicoWay offers better results in fewer treatments for different skin types
  • Fast results – with its ultra-fast delivery of concentrated, high-power energy, PicoWay shatters even the tiniest ink particles making it easier for your body to clear the tattoo ink
  • Minimal discomfort – since PicoWay’s pulses are fast, you’ll feel minimal discomfort throughout the treatment
  • 4 to 6 months tattoo clearance (vs up to 18 months for alternative lasers)
  • 2 to 4 weeks between treatments (vs 6 to 8 weeks for alternative lasers)
