THE PROCESS

What’s involved?

We know that tattoo removal can be overwhelming. We’ve been there!

We strive to make things as simple and worry free as possible.

Once you commence your first treatment, you will instantly feel better about your skin. Just knowing that you’ve taken the first step is an instant weight lifted.

1

STEP ONE

Pick a date and time that suits you. Jump online or get in touch to schedule your free consultation.

We are open 7 days and conveniently located in Rosanna with plenty of parking available.

2

STEP TWO

Arrive, take a seat, make yourself at home. We will talk you through the process from start to finish.

You’ll fill out some paper work and we’ll discuss your goals treatment plan and pricing options. Loads of information will be provided and you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you want.

If satisfied we’ll perform a small test patch on the treated area, you will then have the choice of either commencing full treatment on the spot or book in for a future appointment.

STEP THREE

It’s time to make the magic happen. Your laser tattoo removal treatment is performed.

Get comfortable and let the Quanta Q-Plus C-EVO Laser System,  which is capable of removing both black and multi-coloured tattoo ink do it’s work.

Accompanied with the Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system for your added comfort.

The laser works by breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo (think of a large boulder being smashed into smaller rocks). The broken-down particles are then disbursed from the body via the immune system.

STEP FOUR

It’s home time. We will send you on your merry way with all the aftercare info and products you need.

Following these instructions is important to ensure the treated area heals correctly. Please feel free to reach out anytime if you have any questions or concerns.

HOW PAINFUL IS THE REMOVAL PROCESS?

This is definitely one of our most asked questions and hey, we aren’t surprised- no one likes pain.

We aren’t going to lie, tattoo removal isn’t a walk in the park. We’ve had it done. Yes, there’s some pain. But, many measure the pain equally to getting a tattoo – which you already know all about.

The good news is that tattoo removal treatments are lightyears faster than getting a tattoo, so the pain is short lived.

We want the process to be as comfortable and pain-free as possible so we use the Zimmer Cryo 6 Cooling System which dramatically reduces the unpleasant heat associated with tattoo removal by expelling a continuous cold flow of air straight onto the treatment area … which we think is pretty darn cool (pardon the pun).

If you require further pain management there are additional options available which will be discussed at your initial consultation.

CAN ALL TATTOO COLOURS BE REMOVED?

Yes, Ink Anxiety can treat and in most cases eliminate all tattoo colours. In saying that, some colours are easier to remove than others, so whilst dark inks such as black, blue and red respond more quickly, other colours can be a little bit stubborn. But not too worry, we attack these stubborn colours with our Ruby Laser which delivers a true 694 wavelength to the treatment area.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of treatments required is determined based on a number of factors such as; the tattoo location, ink colour, ink depth, ink type, tattoo age, and your skin tone. Your general health and well being will also play a role in how well your body responds to treatment and can therefore increase or decrease the number of treatments you require.

Removal of professional tattoos generally takes between 5 and 7+ treatments whilst amateur tattoos can take between 1 to 3 treatments using the Quanta system.

A thorough treatment plan will be discussed with you at your consultation.

HOW MUCH WILL MY TREATMENT COST?

Our treatments start at $80 with prices based on the size, colour and number of treatments required. Full cost of treatment will be outlined with your treatment plan at your FREE consultation.

Please see Pricing for further information.

AM I ELIGIBLE FOR LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?

We are serious about tattoo removal, and as a result we have some treatment requirements that not only keep you safe, but allow you to get the most from your treatment;

    We require you to be well rested and in good health prior to treatment. We will not treat people that are drunk, on drugs or have been out all night partying. Being well hydrated before treatment is also advised.

    If you currently have this years hottest tan, congrats! But, we wont be able to treat you. Over exposure to UV light can effect the treatment area so this is a big no for us. This includes the use of fake tan.

    We are unable to treat you if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. While there is no solid evidence that laser tattoo removal has ever been harmful to babies, we would rather err on the side of caution.

    We are unable to treat you if the treatment area is subject to open wounds, abnormal scarring or dermatological skin conditions such as eczema, keloid scarring or psoriasis.

    If you are taking any medication that may increase your skins sensitivity to light (like the popular drug Roaccutane; used to treat Acne), you cannot undergo laser treatment. You must allow a minimum of 6 months post medication prior to commencing laser tattoo removal (to be confirmed with your doctor or specialist).

WILL MY TATTOO BE COMPLETELY REMOVED?

In most cases, 100% removal is achievable. Complete transparency through the removal process is very important to us so the likely level of removal that can be achieved will be discussed in detail at your free consultation.

CAN THE AREA BE TATTOOED AGAIN? CAN ONLY SPECIFIC AREAS BE TREATED?

Absolutely! Many clients opt to have their unwanted tattoos lightened in preparation for a cover-up. This can prove to be more cost effective and we are more than happy to amend your treatment to accommodate this.

Our lasers are extremely accurate which is why we can also remove a specific section of an existing tattoo without treating the surrounding ink.

WILL IT SCAR?

Having been scarred ourselves by inexperienced staff and dodgy machines, we know how important it is to provide a safe and effective service. We’re pretty darn passionate about this!

This has been achieved through our intense search for the best machine for the job.

Our choice, the Quanta Q Plus-C EVO is an authentic one pulse system which fires at just 6 nanoseconds. Many other machines require an increase in power and instead fire two pulses of 12 nanoseconds to achieve the same result. This is too much exposure to your skin and is likely to cause damage to the superficial layers resulting in, you guessed it, unwanted scarring. Our Q-switch laser is the safest way to perform your tattoo removal treatment ensuring your precious skin returns to normal, we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Our additional fractional resurfacing (complimentary with any laser tattoo removal treatment) will not only aid in the prevention of scarring but will also reduce the appearance of any existing scarring caused during the tattoo application.

WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE PROCESS?

Aftercare is a vital part of the treatment process.

So here’s where you step in…

It is advised that you avoid prolonged sun exposure, overly hot showers, saunas, spas and intense physical activity for the first 24 hours especially.

Routine aftercare is typically required for 1-2 weeks post treatmet to reduce the chance of infection and maximize your results.

Detailed after care instructions will be provided to you following your first treatment with us.

We are in this together! Your technician will be contactable at anytime between treatments to answer any further questions that you may have.

WHY WE DON’T USE PICOSECOND LASERS (i.e. PICOSURE)?

Put simply, because we only want to provide you with the best service, technology and results. Read more about why we don’t use Picosure here.
