Minimal chance of scarring with Ashbury’s gentle laser
Laser tattoo treatments gradually fade the tattoo out by breaking and dispersing the pigment that is fixed within the layer of your skin. This then allows your body to eliminate it as waste via your circulatory and lymphatic system.

The cost of each session is based on the size of the area treated. The size of the tattoo also determines the timeframe given to eliminate your tattoo because there are a high number of variables relating to each individuals tattoo. Some of the variables include:
Colour of the tattoo
Type of dye used
How your body eliminates waste products
Depth of tattoo within the skin
If requested, a local or topical anaesthetic can be used prior to treatment. At the time of treatment you can expect some redness and swelling that will subside over 24-48 hours, and you will be asked to apply Bepanthen cream, an antiseptic cream that ensures the integrity of the skin.
It is important to note that scarring is possible as a result of unpredictable individual reactions in the skin. If the skin blisters or crusts this may also cause a degree of scarring, however, with the correct aftercare this is minimised.
