Frequently Asked Questions About Tattoo Removal
HOW DOES NON-LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
The OSC uniquely formulated liquid (Kataderm®) is applied with our ‘state of the art’ machine, in a similar way to the original ink. The liquid bonds on a molecular level with the colour pigments and both are rejected by the skins natural healing process to form a scab.
DOES IT HURT?
Although similar to the original tattoo process, our very latest precision machines give a less painful experience than what you have already endured. A topical anaesthetic can also be used if required during tattoo removal.
CAN I RE-TATTOO A TREATED AREA?
Where reduction or removal of an existing tattoo has been carried out, selective re-sculpting or complete replacement is often possible.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
An average tattoo can typically be removed in in approximately 2 treatments on the same area and takes approximately eight weeks for the treated area to heal sufficiently between treatments.
The treatment times are similar to the time taken in application of the original tattoo, thus it varies with size. The average tattoo will take 35 minutes to treat.
Laser can take significantly more treatments (between 5-20) therefore savings in both time and money soon add up with our latest system.
WILL IT WORK FOR MY SKIN TYPE?
The Oxford Skin Clinics tattoo removal system is effective on all skin types and ethnic backgrounds.
DO YOU GUARANTEE COMPLETE REMOVAL AND SAFETY?
As with individuals, each tattoo is unique and some will respond differently to others. Thus absolute tattoo removal guarantees are not possible.
There have been no lasting side effects documented arising from this type of removal treatment and 1000’s of tattoos have been successfully removed with no adverse reaction. Oxford Skin Clinics are fully insured for the provision of their treatments.
Soreness for around a week is possible. Post final treatment redness should fade to the normal skin colour after a few months. Our latest system is unlikely to cause long term texture or pigment changes like laser tattoo removal can.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY SKIN POST TREATMENT?
We advise you to keep the treated area dry so the liquid can continue to work undiluted. A scab will form and fall off in due course, taking ink with it. Remove this whole sentence completely, thus making it easier to expel with further treatments.
CAN OXFORD SKIN CLINICS TREAT ME IF I HAVE ALREADY HAD LASER REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Lasers can form sub-dermal scar tissue, if this is not too prevalent it is possible to treat, and in some cases can help faster removal with our system. We may also be able to help improve the appearance of existing laser. Please call Free Phone 0800 023 1915 to discuss.
WILL THIS WORK ON PERMANENT EYEBROW MAKEUP AND HOME MADE TATTOOS?
Yes to both, home made tattoos can vary even more in quality than professionally applied ones. Thus some can be removed in fewer treatments. But no two are the same.
As each situation is different you will have a full consultation with one of our specialist team. We will discuss any relevant medical history, identify your requirements and explain the procedure. This can be booked by calling us on Free Phone 0800 023 1915.
As part of the initial consultation a patch test is carried out before full treatment begins. The cost of the patch test is included as part of the initial consultation fee of £75.00 at Richmond & Oxford (other clinics may vary).
