Laser Tattoo Removal during the Covid-19 Lockdown

‘Help! I can’t attend my next laser session on my tattoo because of lockdown.’

If like many others, you are feeling disappointed about this, we understand. It’s frustrating to have what is already a slow process drawn out even further. But be reassured that once the laser treatment course has commenced, your body will continue to gradually clear the lasered ink, even if you are overdue for your next session.

By helping your immune system operate more efficiently, you’ll not only help fade your tattoo faster, you’ll also be in better health should you become exposed to coronavirus.

Here are some things that you can do to help the process and ensure you are ready to resume laser treatment once the clinic re-opens:

 

1. Get Active
Exercise increases blood flow to your skin and all around your body, which helps move the lasered ink particles away from your skin faster. The government is encouraging us to exercise once a day during lockdown for our physical and mental well-being.

2. Stay Hydrated
Increasing your water intake can greatly impact how quickly your treatments work. Decreasing alcohol consumption will also be beneficial to your treatments because of alcohol’s dehydrating effect on the body. Staying well hydrated makes it easier for your body to process the ink, therefore your tattoo will fade faster. Two litres/day is ideal, though you should increase this if exercising intensely.

3. Eat Healthily
Food is more than fuel; the human body requires vitamins and minerals, proteins, carbohydrates & fats to keep the body functioning at its best. Try to avoid an unbalanced diet or one with a lot of processed food. Aim instead for a whole-food diet, mostly plant-based with colourful foods you prepare from scratch. But of course, it’s OK to enjoy an occasional less-healthy treat!

4. Get Enough Sleep
There’s no excuse not to get enough sleep while pubs, clubs and socialising is off-limits. Sleep is a well-documented means of strengthening the body and immune system – it’s when we recover both mentally and physically from the day. Adults need 7-8 hours’ sleep per night.

5. Quit Smoking
Of course, this is easier said than done, but regular smoking significantly decreases the effectiveness of your laser treatments. If your immune system is already working to remove smoking pollutants, it can’t work so well on your ink. If quitting is not an option for you, try to cut back on smoking to get the most out of your treatments. Making the commitment to tattoo removal can be a great motivator to reduce or quit smoking.

6. Avoid the Sun
If you get sun exposure to the treatment area, you’ll need to wait four weeks before you can have your next laser session. So use sunscreen, dressings or clothing to cover your tattoo as we head into Spring. Avoiding a tan in the treatment area will also reduce the chance of laser-induced pigmentation changes.

Picosure’s laser tattoo removal technology is the most effective currently available and looking after yourself day-to-day can speed up the tattoo removal process.
Although Claritas Laser Clinic is currently closed during the Covid-19 outbreak, our clinicians are still available to answer any questions you may have about laser tattoo removal. Feel free to email or call us for more information!

Laser hair removal – where to start and getting it right!

Are you fed up of constantly shaving or having to let your hair grow long before waxing? Well, laser hair removal is the answer!

There are lots of hair removal lasers out there and it can be really confusing which one to choose. Here at Claritas Laser Clinic we have Soprano Ice which has the perfect and only wavelength to target and reduce your hair. Soprano Ice has an icy cold tip to keep you nice and comfortable whilst we zap away those hairs! As well as having one of the best lasers for hair removal at Claritas, you will also be treated by one of our medically qualified practitioners. Rest assured that you will be in safe hands.

Typically, we recommend that you come every 4 – 6 weeks for the first 8 treatments to achieve a great result, but this can vary from client to client. With all laser hair removal systems, top ups may be required to maintain those smooth legs…… we are sure though that you will be thrilled with the results that Soprano Ice can deliver!

If you’ve been thinking about laser hair removal and a hair-free summer, then talk to us now and book in for a free consultation. We can talk you through the process from start to finish, then you will know exactly what to expect.

Tattoo removal – does it hurt? We tell it like it is

>Having a tattoo can be exciting and brings a connection with the image that’s now a part of your  skin. But …
at some point, you just might regret this decision and wish you could make it go away.

Perhaps you’ve changed how you feel about your tattoo. Or maybe the subject is no longer relevant. Or it’s just that the artwork was never quite right.

If this is you, you are not alone!  Almost 1 in 5 people are unhappy with at least one of their tattoos.

Tattoo regret pale

You can do something about that tattoo though so don’t despair.

If you’ve done your research, you’ll realise that the best way to remove it without the risk of permanent scarring is with laser treatment.

For many, it is the fear of the pain. So allow us to share some experienced reassurance…

There is no getting away from the fact that some pain is involved with tattoo removal. As technology has advanced, laser treatment has become much more tolerable and many of our clients liken the sensation to when their tattoo was first done. The BIG difference is that it is so much faster!  Clients who have been treated with older lasers, for instance Q-switched, and then PicoSure notice the positive difference with this contemporary technology.

For example, a small tattoo of 3cm square would take about a minute to treat.

Throughout the process an ultra-cold air jet cools and numbs the skin. This counteracts the heat of the laser and helps protect the skin whilst the laser targets the ink. Contrary to some people’s mistaken belief, the tattoo is not ‘burned off’.

If even a minute of pain seems unbearable, or your tattoo is larger, then there are numbing creams that can be applied to the skin 30 minutes before treatment – these reduce rather than eliminate discomfort.  Alternatively, for complete pain elimination, you can have injections of local anaesthetic. We are fully trained in all of this.

Hopefully, this has helped to calm any concerns you have but the best reassurance will come from talking through your situation with one of our team here at Claritas Laser Clinic. We are experienced, professional and kind and, importantly, understand how you might be feeling and quickly put you at ease.

Your first consultation is free so you can see how clinic, see how we work and then make your decision.

Call 01480 214442 for a free consultation or book on-line here and take that step today.

Delighted after just one treatment!

When you can’t read the writing any more then it’s time to do something about it.
Our client couldn’t be more pleased with the results here on her collar bone.
“I literally can’t believe the difference after one session with PicoSure compared to other methods.”
Have a chat to us today and make a difference to you.

“Much less painful than I thought.” Ashleigh is happy

Ashleigh was so pleased with her first Picosure treatment and finally her ink has started to disappear.

“It wasn’t half as painful and much faster than previous laser treatments. Even the same day, there was no discomfort.”

You know where to come to when you want to make that change.

No covering up embarrassing tattoos this summer. Oh no.

Three treatments and look at this.

Our client had this tattoo when she was 20 years old. Now she’s looking forward to getting her shoulders out in the sun this summer and so glad that she won’t have to cover up.

Clover be gone!

Lucky for some but not in this case.
This clover had to go and, after multiple treatments with a Q-switch laser, PicoSure clears the green ink on our client’s arm in just three sessions.
Result!

Never lose ‘Faith’. Unless you want to!

 

Faith just had to go for our client and look at the results after just four treatments with Picosure.

Nearly there. Impressive eh!
