Where are the best laser tattoo removalists in Canberra? Photo: File.
It was a great idea at the time. Getting a tattoo that is. But now that youre older, wiser (or perhaps just sober), youre looking to get it removed. Whilst there are options to cover it up with another tattoo, you might prefer a clean slate. Lucky for you, there is a process that can help: laser tattoo removal.
It might sound scary, but in comparison to other methods of removing tattoos, laser is non-abrasive and shouldnt cause scarring when done properly. Laser tattoo removal works by breaking down the ink molecules within your tattoo into smaller pieces, allowing them to be absorbed into your bloodstream so your body can flush them out naturally.
However, not all laser tattoo removalists are the same. There is currently no regulation for laser tattoo removalists in Canberra. To avoid being left with a botched job or unsightly scars by an inexperienced provider, its best to find a laser tattoo removalist that you can trust.
In this article, well outline the qualities to consider when choosing a laser tattoo removalist, and share where to find the best in Canberra.
Choosing the right tattoo removalist will take the stress out of what can be an emotionally draining experience. After all, this is your skin and you dont want long-term or permanent damage, scarring or burns.

How does laser tattoo removal work?
A laser machine directs pulses of laser energy towards the ink particles. The laser beam passes through the layers of your skin and breaks the tattoo ink into tiny pieces. The bodys natural filtration system removes the residue, leading to the tattoo fading. After multiple sessions, the tattoo is no longer visible.
Does laser tattoo removal treatment hurt?
Some laser machines provide a more comfortable experience than others. Having said that, the process is still uncomfortable, with different people feeling more pain than others depending on their threshold. Some people have said laser pulses are like being flicked by a rubber band.
What other methods are there of tattoo removal?
Other than laser removal, you can get surgical removal of a tattoo. This involves cutting out the area of skin with the tattoo and stitching it back together. Another method is dermabrasion, which involves removing layers of the skin by sanding it back.
How can I manage the pain of tattoo removal?
You can use a topical anaesthetic product, but its best to discuss this with your technician before arriving for your treatment. You can talk to a pharmacist about numbing creams. Ask if the technician helps you manage discomfort. Some, for example, use cooling equipment which can provide relief before, during and after treatment.
How many treatments do I need to get rid of my tattoo?
This depends on many factors, including the size and ink colour of your tattoo. Also, some colours are harder to remove than others. The number of treatments youll require can also depend on pigment depth and intensity. You can expect multiple treatments, however, with breaks between each so your system has time to flush ink particles out.
How much does it cost to have a tattoo removed?
Its best to organise a consultation with a technician since many factors are at play. This includes the size and intensity of your tattoo, and the colours used.
