Tattoo Removal Laser Treatment
Tattoos have never been more popular than they are today. With this rise in popularity, it means that the number of people who regret tattoos is also increasing.
If you got a tattoo when you were younger or are just generally unhappy with how your tattoo looks and would prefer it wasn’t there anymore, then considering a tattoo removal could be for you.
At Snowberry Lane, we are able to provide a solution to any tattoo problems with our tattoo removal treatments.

Using modern cosmetic technology, there is a relatively simple way of removing tattoos. At Snowberry Lane Clinic, our dedicated team are proud of the tattoo removal results we achieve.
Tattoos are removed using a process called laser tattoo removal. The results we can achieve are dependent on a variety of factors including the size, age and design of the tattoo you wish to get removed. The kind of ink used for the tattoo always plays a large part in how much can be removed.
Some commonly asked questions about tattoo removal treatment are:
- What can I expect with Snowberry Lane Tattoo Removal?
- How are tattoos removed?
- Is the removal process painful?
- What results can be expected?
- Will a patient require much aftercare?
What can I expect with Snowberry Lane tattoo removal?
After booking an appointment at our clinic, you can expect an initial consultation session with someone from our expert cosmetic team. They will answer any questions you have about the procedure, as well as assess the tattoo(s) you would like to remove.
They will then provide advice and recommendations about the treatment process and what the next step is.
At a patient’s initial consultation, the clinician will provide an estimate of how many removal sessions the patient will require to remove their tattoo. It is important to establish that the tattoo removal process is dependent on the body’s ability to eliminate ink from the skin. The amount of sessions required depends on a number of factors, including the location of the tattoo, skin type, tattoo layering (whether the tattoo is a cover-up) and ink colours. The clinician can only give a patient an estimation taking into account these factors.
How are tattoos removed?
The process of laser tattoo removal involves the use of light energy delivered from a concentrated source. We use a Medlite laser to do this. By passing the laser over the tattoo, the ink breaks down into tiny particles. Your body’s own natural filtering system then flushes the particles through the bloodstream and out the body, causing no harm.
Is the removal process painful?
Just like other procedures, an individual’s pain threshold will determine how painful the removal process is for them. Anyone who is seeking tattoo removal has already experienced the pain of getting the tattoo done itself.
Many people think the removal process is just as painful as getting a tattoo and others think that it is not as painful and only experience minimal discomfort. It is entirely dependent on the individual.
Snowberry Lane will always accommodate patients and try to make them as comfortable as possible using numbing creams and a local anaesthetic to help alleviate any pain.
Is there any scarring?
Understandably if you are seeking to remove a tattoo, you would want the skin underneath to look as natural as possible.
When the proper laser protocols and aftercare procedure is carried out, there is unlikely to be any scarring left for a patient. The only left-over scars after the removal procedure will be from when the tattoo was originally applied by the tattoo artist.
If there are pre-existing scars present, the tattoo removal will get rid of the ink and leave the remaining scarred tissue.
Will a patient require much aftercare?
At the end of your tattoo removal session, you will be issued with full aftercare instructions to ensure that the process goes as smoothly as possible and that you get optimal results from the procedure.
