In SharpLight’s tattoo removal treatments and equipment, a laser technology is used to target the ink of the tattoo and to apply localized pulses of light, aimed to decompose the tattoo’s pigment clusters. More specifical-ly, this pulsed light safely passes through the skin’s outer layer and is absorbed by the ink; the light is then converted to heat, which breaks the ink down into much smaller, more manageable particles. The body’s lymphatic system then filters these particles out over several weeks’ time and, as this natural elimination occurs, the tattoo fades and eventually disappears. SharpLight’s technologies include varying spot sizes and other customizable settings to ensure the most effective removal with the lowest risk of side effects. While the number of treatment sessions depends on the colour, size and placement of tattoo, all profiles can be effectively and safely treated.

Tattoo Removal is suitable for various types of tattoos, including colored and black ink tattoos. The effectiveness of the removal process may depend on factors such as the size, color, and age of the tattoo.
Individuals with unwanted tattoos, whether due to changes in taste, regrets, or lifestyle changes, may be good candidates for Tattoo Removal. Consultation with a Tattoo Removal professional can determine suitability.
The level of discomfort can vary depending on the method used and individual pain tolerance. Most people describe the sensation as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Topical numbing agents can be applied to enhance comfort.
The number of sessions required for Tattoo Removal varies based on factors such as tattoo size, ink colors, and skin type. Multiple sessions, spaced several weeks apart, are typically needed for optimal results.
Downtime is minimal for most people. Some redness, swelling, or blistering may occur, but these are usually temporary and subside within a few days. Patients can typically resume normal activities after the procedure.
Modern laser technology is effective in removing various colors, but certain colors may respond differently. Black and dark blue inks usually respond well, while lighter colors may require more sessions.
Complete tattoo removal may not always be possible, and some degree of fading may be more realistic. The success of removal depends on factors such as tattoo size, ink colors, and skin type.
Results are not immediate, and several sessions are typically needed to see significant fading. Improvements are gradual, and the final results may continue to develop over several months.
