Whatever the reason for wanting your tattoo removed, once you have made that decision, you need to ensure you are using the best method or tattoo removal available to ensure the most effective outcome.
Obviously, the ultimate goal of tattoo removal treatments is for the skin to look like there was never a tattoo there. Overall, laser tattoo removal is the least invasive and most effective method of removing a tattoo. Over the years there have been a variety of laser tattoo removal treatments, with a variety of results, not all of them good. PicoSure is the world’s first and only aesthetic picosecond laser.
It may sound complicated, but what it means is this: you get a better result, in fewer treatments, with less pain and less damage to the skin.
This breakthrough in laser tattoo removal technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photo thermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink directly breaking it into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. Advanced Aesthetics has one of only handful PicoSure Lasers in Australia. PicoSure is available with the Boost™ Upgrade, which increases the PressureWave™ by 70%.

Once you have made the decision to undertake laser tattoo removal treatments on the Gold Coast, what happens next? Free Assessment
During this consultation a doctor or nurse will fully explain the process and answer any questions you may have regarding the tattoo removal procedure. They will discuss your medical history to make sure that laser tattoo removal is the right method for you. The assessment should take about 20 minutes.
Some medical conditions are associated with a greater risk of complications with laser tattoo removal treatment, as are some medications, so we need to know about any current conditions. This information enables us to make your treatment as safe as possible. We will also discuss possible side effects of your tattoo removal procedure to make sure you are fully informed of any treatment risks.
Our attention then turns to your tattoo and gathering detailed information about where it was done, by whom and what type of inks were used. We also need to know if you experienced any skin reactions when the work was first done.
The number of tattoo removal treatments needed will vary according to the size of the tattoo, the depth of the ink and whether complete removal or fading is required. The number of sessions, pain relief options and cost of treatments will be discussed in this initial assessment.
If you are happy to proceed with the laser tattoo removal treatment we will then test several small sections of your tattoo to assess how it will react to the laser. Different colours may require the use of different lasers. Each tattoo removal session will last around 15-20 minutes, but the laser treatment itself is very fast. A six to ten-week break will be required between sessions. After each treatment the skin will feel a little like it’s been sunburnt, but this will slowly subside over the next few days.
After your laser tattoo removal treatment on the Gold Coast it is important to stay out of the sun for the first few days as sun exposure may lead to complications or side effects. Our experts will provide you with a written list of ‘dos’ and ‘dont’s’ and advise you about common side effects and when to get in touch with us if you have any concerns.
