Tattoo Removal

Before treatment to remove a tattoo using the Q-switched laser can begin, it will be necessary to undertake an initial consultation and test patch.  The consultation is required to assess the size and type of tattoo and the test patch is necessary to ensure the correct settings are used for the most effective treatment possible.  Consultation and test patch costs £50.

Full removal of a tattoo can take several weeks, depending upon the size and pigmentation of the tattoo. For optimum results and for the treatment to have full effect, we recommend intervals of 12 weeks between sessions.  However, we will undertake sessions at 8 week intervals.

For patients in a hurry, we can undertake treatment at 4 week intervals, but this will require more sessions and is therefore a much more expensive option.

Recently introduced at Shropshire Skin Clinic’s St Michael’s House, laser tattoo removal is a new service.  We use high-end Q-switched laser equipment which is generally considered to be the most effective treatment for removal of tattoos.

Laser tattoo removal works by pulses of high-energy light which penetrate the skin and break up the ink particles into smaller fragments which are then removed by normal body processes.

Pigmented tattoos are more difficult to treat and costs are as follows:

Small Area - £160

Medium Area - £260

Costs of laser tattoo removal treatments are as follows:

Tiny area (e.g. a small cross) - £50

Small Area - £75

Medium Area - £150

Large Area - £225 or more
