Tattoo Regret
Below is a link to the latest data/statistics on having ink that you regret.
The latest Tattoo Removal News.
As a result, You are Between the Ages of 18 and 21. An example of this is roughly 37 percent of people who regret their tattoos got their unwanted ink between those ages.
Consequently another 20 percent were aged 22 to 25.
However once you hit 26, the evidence of this suggests the likelihood of regretting your tattoo falls into the single digits.

GAINING KNOWLEDGE
Following the knowledge gained from our survey.
In particular, the lack of trained tattoo removal specialists.
Firstly, we decided to train in health and later laser tattoo removal.
Secondly, we up-skilled ourselves and our staff in Laser Safety.
As a result, we became the first dedicated laser tattoo removal clinic to operate within this area.
Above all, our team are passionate about the service we provide.
With this in mind our staff are constantly educating themselves and others on the latest tattoo removal procedures to ensure that we provide the best service possible to our clients.

Firstly, we operate with the most advanced technology in the world, the Quanta Discovery Pico laser.
The laser safely penetrates the skin and targets each tattoo ink colour with specific wavelengths.
Tattoos will gradually fade during the course of 5 to 10 sessions.
It’s the ‘gold standard’ in device technology, and Laser-Tattoff uses it exclusively.

Photo-Acoustic Effect

Discovery Pico includes both Picosecond and nanosecond pulses, for better treatment flexibility.

The Discovery Pico series generates a pure photo-acoustic effect to shatter inks and pigmentation leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

Thanks to its shorter pulse duration, high peak power and large spot size hand-pieces the Discovery Pico effectively smashes even the deepest skin pigments.

How the laser reacts, says Keith, “Is like water vapour coming out in the area”.
“When it’s a nice black tattoo, as soon as we hit it with the laser, it turns white – that’s what we call frosting.
Then, once the black tattoo turns white, it stays like that for about 5 to 10 minutes, and then the process starts.”
The whiteness/Frosting is the escape of gasses from the skin.
An analogy of this process is like a small explosion.
Firstly, in a trillionth of a second (Picosecond) a burst of light shoots out of the laser.
Strikes the upper layer of the skin (Epidermis) and penetrates down into the dermal layer, where the ink is contained.
This then fragments (causes an explosion) the ink into tiny particles.
In all explosions gasses expand and need to escape by choosing the least path of resistance.
These gasses from the laser (Explosion) travel back up through the skin. (Epidermis).
This is where the water and gasses escape from causing the top layer of your tattoo to turn white.
