Laser Tattoo Removal

Bioscor uses the laser system known as Q-switched Nd:YAG for the removal of unwanted tattoos. It works by delivering light pulses of a specific wavelength which are absorbed by the tattooed skin, where the pigment is broken up by the light pulses. The Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is most effective in the removal of black, blue, red and brown tattoos.

Depending on patient tolerance, a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure patient comfort.

This procedure:

  • Has a rapid onset of action with visible results after the first treatment.
  • Has a reduced chance of scarring.
  • Is an efficient technique requiring only a few sessions (this will depend on the size and intricacy of tattoo)

Did you know these 5 Laser Tattoo Removal Facts/Tips?


① It takes time and multiple sessions to achieve satisfactory results. This all depends on several factors: age of tattoo, size of tattoo, colours/pigments used, degree of contrast between skin tone and tattoo, etc. Your sessions are usually 6 – 8 weeks in between one another to give your body time to absorb broken down pigments.⁠

② It can cost more than you think because all those sessions do add up! Unfortunately, not all the tattoo pigment can be broken down in a single session. In the case of laser tattoo removal, slow and steady achieves the best results.⁠

③ Speaking of results, you have to accept that tattoos can change the skin underneath. It may not look as flawless as it once was as sometimes you may have light scarring as a result of the tattoo. Your skin may also look lighter than the rest of your skin due to the laser tattoo causing hypopigmentation.⁠

④ Always follow the advice of your doctor/physician as to when you can exercise again post-laser tattoo removal session. Exercise increases your blood circulation, allowing the broken down pigments to be taken up into your system and removed in a quicker and more efficient manner. ⁠

⑤ And if you smoke, don’t! Or at least cut back while you’re undergoing your laser tattoo removal sessions. Smoking constricts blood vessels and slows down your body’s healing progress.⁠
