Picosecond Laser at Oldham Tattoo Removal

About our

Tattoo Removal Laser

Welcome to Oldham Tattoo Removal, our Picosecond ND YAG Technology Tattoo Removal Laser produces ultra-short pulses targeting the ink particles with pressure so great, it shatters the ink into tiny particles. 
Because the laser particles are so tiny, they are more easily absorbed and eliminated by the body. This ensures less heat, less pain and less healing time to the area treated.
 

The picosecond laser offers two distinct Q-switched mode wavelengths - 1064nm & 532nm which expands its treatment applications to coloured ink including the more difficult green and sky blue colours.


Pico technology is less painful compared to standard lasers, coupled with our cooling system being applied before and after treatment, any discomfort is further reduced.
 

If you have a special occasion coming up, a new job to start, or already have a cover up tattoo session booked, Picosecond Technology is the most effective and fastest way to remove your tattoo, and is effective with those more difficult colours like blue or green.

Hayley, Senior Practitioner, Oldham Tattoo Removal
  • What should I expect at my Consultation?
    At your consultation, one of our senior practitioners will do an assessment of your skin and tattoo to see if you are suitable for laser tattoo removal followed by a patch test. The practitioner will answer all your questions and discuss your tattoo removal treatment and price plans available. Consultations can take between 30 - 45 minutes.
  • I've had some treatment elswehere, do I still need a consultation & patch test?"
    Yes! The practitioner will want to assess your skin type and tattoo & give you a plan based on that. The patch test will allow them to ascertain the correct laser parameters for you & ensure that no bad skin reaction occurs.
  • Are there any side effects?
    There may be some swelling, heat and blistering between treatments. Your practitioner will advise you on your aftercare regime which includes keeping the area cool and moisterised.
  • Why is Laser Tattoo Removal required if I am having a cover up?
    You want to be totally happy with your new cover up & ensure none of the old one shows through, so it is recommended that you get rid of as much of the old tattoo as possible. Our Pico Laser is fast and effective at preparing your skin for a new cover up tattoo. Removing the tattoo or fading it will allow more flexibility and creativity with the new tattoo and your desired artwork.
  • Is tattoo removal painful?
    Laser tattoo removal treatment can cause some pain and discomfort, however this can be managed by pre numbing the area or treating smaller areas rather that the whole area. Using a Pico Laser minimises any pain and discomfort compared to other laser technologies on the market.
  • Will I see instant results?
    The body needs time to absorb and dissipate the ink particles, the fading process will be ongoing until about 6 weeks after treatment ends.
  • How many treatments will I need?
    Each person and each tattoo are different and the amount of sessions will be determined by the size and colours of your tattoo. Our practitioners are very knowledgeable and may be able to give some estimation based on previous experience at the consultation.
  • How is a Picosecond technology laser different from a Q-Switched laser?
    Picosecond Lasers are around 10 times faster than Q-Switched lasers. The pulses are so fast that the pigment smashing effect is more efficient and the heat generated in the skin is so much less. It means the number of treatments can be reduced and the time bwtween sessions can be less. Q-Switched lasers reduce the pulse duration to nanoseconds. Picosecond technology goes further by reducing it to sub-nanoseconds.
