Frequently Asked Questions

How uncomfortable is tattoo removal?

  • Tattoo removal is faster and less painful than getting a tattoo – if you could handle the tattoo, you will be fine with the removal. You will feel a stinging sensation like a rubber band flicking your skin but it will be gone in seconds.
  • We use the Zimmer Chiller to cool the skin before, during and after the treatment to minimize discomfort or you can apply a numbing cream.

How many treatments will it take?

  • Every tattoo, and every person is unique! It can take between 5 and 15 treatments to remove a tattoo, depending on many factors, including the quality of the tattoo, the depth and colour. When you visit MTR for your first visit we’ll be able to give you a better estimate based on your individual case.
  • The sessions are spaced 6-8 weeks to allow the immune system enough time to maximise ink removal.

How soon can I have my tattoo removed?

  • You can have a tattoo removed as soon as it has completely healed. A minimum period of 6 weeks is advised – even though it may appear healed after only 1 week!

Can the area be re-tattooed?

  • Absolutely! Tattoo fading is very popular, and can help you to replace a tattoo, amend a tattoo or create space to improve on your current designs. We suggest you give the area at least 6 weeks following the removal so it is completely recovered.
