With tattoo removal, Perth men and women can erase old tattoo choices that no longer please your current aesthetic preferences. At Enhance Skin Aesthetics we use the Picosure tattoo removal laser technology. This disperses the tattoo ink into tiny particles that your body’s immune system recognise as foreign. They are then broken down and flushed out by the help of the body’s white cells and kidneys. The Picosure tattoo removal laser is effective on a diverse range of tattoo colours due to the different wavelengths it uses. You can watch this educational video to thoroughly understand the prinsipal of tattoo removal.
How many tattoo removal sessions will I need?
This process takes on average approximately 6 weeks and therefore we recommend spacing your appointments at least 6 weeks apart. Best results are usually reached within 4 to 8 treatments. This depends on several variables, such as:
- the depth of the tattoo and ink concentration
- the age, colour and size
- your skin type
- your immune system
Also some of our clients are seeking a less thorough removal in preparation for a coverup tattoo. In this case less sessions are needed. A full removal requires more sessions with green and blue colours being the most stubborn to remove.

How to prepare for tattoo removal and care for it afterwards
Tattoo removal may cause a slight amount of discomfort. It’s often described as a rubber band snapping on the skin-like sensation. Some clients report the discomfort levels as being similar as getting a tattoo. The sensation also depends on the area we are treating. To minimise these discomfort levels, we recommend applying a topical numbing cream (Emla or Numb it) onto the area 30-45mins before arriving for your treatment. In order to keep the cream from rubbing off you can apply some glad wrap over it.
Aftercare for tattoo removal is very similar as caring for your tattoo for when you initially had it done. It is important to keep it clean and hydrated with a hydrating balm (Bepanthen or Savlon). Also in order to avoid scarring, it is important to restrain from picking any scabs or blisters.
