What Are Your Options? 3 Tattoo Removal Methods

Plasma Pen Tattoo Removal

Utilising a Plasma Pen for tattoo removal is our favourite method. The pen produces plasma waves directed at the collagen-producing cells in the skin, called fibroblasts. The ink is removed from the skin and healing is kick-started by the skin ‘senses’ the damage and producing new collagen. This method typically removes the tattoo in 1 to 3 sessions.

At Mel’s Skin Clinic this is our preferred method of tattoo removal as it is very effective, fast and less painful than the other methods.

Laser Tattoo Removal

A laser that produces pulses of light energy is directed at the tattoo whereby the energy that is produced by the laser penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink. As the tattoo ink particles absorb the energy, they heat up and then shatter into tiny fragments that are removed by the bloodstream.

At our skin clinic we typically opt for this method to remove permanent make-up and smaller ‘blow-out’ sections of existing tattoos.

Pinpoint Abrasion

The 123-TATTOO-FREE® system removes tattoos in 1 to 3 sessions, utilizing a mild exfoliating formula and a virtually painless pinpoint abrasion process. This method removes the ink from the skin by creating a mild irritation that causes the body to naturally reject the pigment. 

We will resort to the 123-Tattoo-Free method when the plasma pen or laser methods prove unsuccessful.
