You are not alone when it comes to having some ‘ink regrets’. Whatever the reason you have for wanting to pursue laser tattoo removal, you need to ensure you go to a medical-based practice such as Advanced Aesthetics. Their practitioners are fully qualified, and only use the latest, most effective and safest laser tattoo removal technologies.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
The team at Advanced Aesthetics has extensive experience in performing tattoo removal treatments on the gold coast. As well as treatment knowledge, Advanced Aesthetics has the latest, break-through Picosure laser equipment to achieve the best results possible.
Picosure – the latest and safest laser tattoo removal machine
In the last decade there have been a variety of laser tattoo removal treatments options. These technologies delivered a variety of outcomes, and not all of them were capable of delivering optimal results.
Picosure is the world’s first and only aesthetic picosecond laser and Advanced Aesthetics is one of the few clinics in Australia to have this technology. The picosure laser tattoo removal technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin that are measured in trillionths of a second.
Traditional nanosecond tattoo removal lasers relied on delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue to breakdown tattoos. Picosure on the other hand takes advantage of pressurewave technology that shatters the ink directly, then breaks it into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body making it the best laser for tattoo removal option.
Free medical assessment for laser tattoo removal Gold Coast
Once you have made the decision to undertake laser tattoo removal treatments, arrange for your free assessment at Advanced Aesthetics. During your 20-minute consultation, a doctor or nurse will discuss your medical history and fully explain the process and answer any questions you may have regarding the laser tattoo removal procedure.
A professional medical assessment is necessary to determine any medical conditions that could be associated with a greater risk of complications with laser tattoo removal treatments. They will need to know of any current medical conditions and medications used as this information enables them to make your treatment is as safe as possible. They will also discuss any potential side effects of your tattoo removal treatment plan to ensure that you are fully informed of any risks.
Your personalised laser tattoo removal treatment plan
Once Advanced Aesthetics has covered all the relevant medical information the attention will then turn to your individual needs. Do you want your tattoo removed entirely? Or do you want it reduced to re-tattoo the area? They will also want to know where and when your tattoo was done, by who – and what inks were used. They will also want to know how your skin reacted when the original tattoo was done.
All this information makes it possible for Advanced Aesthetics to put together a personalised laser tattoo removal treatment plan for you that will ensure the best possible results. If you are happy to proceed with the laser tattoo removal treatments, they will then test several small sections of your tattoo to assess how it will react to the laser. Different colours may require the use of different lasers.

How many laser tattoo removal treatments will I need?
The number of tattoo removal treatments needed will vary according to the size of the tattoo, the depth of the ink and whether complete removal or fading is required. Each tattoo removal session will vary in time, depending on the size of the tattoo, but the laser treatment itself is quicker than you think. You will need a 6 to 12-week break between each session. After each treatment the skin will feel like it’s slightly sunburnt, but this will subside over the following few days.
