Tattoos are very commonplace these days and no longer carry the taboo that they used to. With that being said it can still have a negative impact in certain walks of life, especially if a tattoo is in a prominent area like the face and upper neck. Facial tattoo removal is one option we have available for people who may be thinking they want or need to get a tattoo removed from their face.
The procedure we use for tattoo removal involves a hand held laser being passed over the tattooed area delivering light energy which breaks down inks into tiny particles. These particles are then removed by the body’s own natural filtering systems. Results will vary depending on the style and size of the tattoo and the type of ink used.
Most patients will suffer no discomfort however anaesthetic creams can be used if required.
An initial consultation will take place where our specialists can take you step by step through the process and let you know what kind of results you can expect from the treatment. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
You can read more about how effective this removal process is on our tattoo removal treatment page.
Why Do People Get Facial Tattoo Removals?
This can be due to:
- Tastes and judgement changing over time
- Improving employability status
- Negative connotations with tattoo
With the face and the neck being the most visible parts of the human body, it is important to use proven techniques that will allow achieving the desired results with minimal scarring left behind and a respectable downtime after treatment.
Facial Tattoo Removal Treatment
Like all the treatments provided at the Snowberry Lane, we take a delicate and thorough approach with our patients. No two tattoo removals are ever the same as the quality of removal will depend on the placement and the condition of the skin on the face.
While some tattoo parlours and beauty salons offer a removal procedure, in many cases this is just a reduction of the tattoo presence and not a full removal.
Depending on the circumstances, one or more treatments are usually required to achieve the desired effect to remove it as much as possible.

These particles are then removed by the body’s own natural filtering systems without any harm to the patient.
Results will vary depending on a number of factors which include:
- The style of the tattoo
- The size of the tattoo
- The colour of the tattoo
- The type of ink used
- How deeply the ink was injected
Most patients will suffer none to low levels of discomfort. However, anaesthetic creams can be used if required to make the treatment process more pleasant.
The Consultation Process
An initial consultation will take place where our specialists can take you step by step through the process and let you know what kind of results you can expect from the tattoo removal treatment.
The consultation is important as it will help give you an idea of how many sessions you will need and will help you understand how everything works. We will also highlight what you’ll need to know post-treatment. For instance, it is important to avoid sun contact on the affected area and avoid certain activities to improve the recovery time.
You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the tattoo removal.
