the process very openly and was a top bloke. The results are so much better than I thought they would be and each treatment was really quick. If you are looking to get rid of a tattoo I would highly recommend going down to see Matt
I couldn’t recommend Tattoo Removal Manchester more. Matt was really friendly and talked through the whole process.
I was worried about having my tattoo removed because I was told it really hurts, but it was nowhere as bad as I’d built it up to be, and the process was so quick. It was completely gone in 3-4 less sessions than any other tattoo removal company had quoted.
I came in for a consultation with Matt at the weekend to see what he could do about a small annoying tattoo I wanted removed on the bottom of my leg. Matt was very professional, and he talked me through the whole laser removal service.
10/10, I could not be happier
Great surroundings, great service and a great price. Could not recommend more
I was very nervous but Matt put me at easy straight away. It was over before I knew it and I'm delighted with the results
Our Pico-focused tattoo removal system is one of the only lasers of its type in and around Manchester city centre. How do we know this? We’ve been and tested the local competition, that’s how. We guarantee that you won’t find a safer and faster system with the same level of customer service in the local area.
Our laser tattoo removal is the fastest and most effective way of removing your unwanted tattoo. With removal speeds which are up to 70% faster than traditional laser tattoo machines, using our laser system won’t only save you time due to fewer sessions but money and pain! The real added bonus is that with us, you get to use a skin air cooling system for free with every appointment.
Unlike other laser machines which pulse lasers at a much lower frequency, our state-of-the-art laser system uses innovative laser frequencies which rapidly pulses laser energy into the skin. This new method of laser removal is significantly better for the health of your skin as the laser energy causes the ink particles in a tattoo to break and disperse, causing very little heat build-up which can lead to burning.
Older laser machines use photo-thermal energy to target the tattoo, which is slower, requires more sessions and in most circumstances can’t remove colour tattoos.
Our laser system uses photo-mechanical energy combined with ultra-short bursts which are more energy-efficient and requires less heat. This process means a tattoo can be removed in significantly fewer sessions, cause little to no damage to your skin and also allow us to tattoo all colours.
The different frequencies and wavelengths also allow us to remove almost all tattoo colours, whereas older and more traditional laser systems are unable to remove colour tattoos.
Don’t be put off by the lower cost per sessions you may see from a tattoo removal studio that use older systems. Let’s do the math. If it costs £30 per session using an older laser system and it takes 20 sessions, it will cost you £600 to have your tattoo removed. It may also not remove the entire tattoo.
Our pico-focused system costs from £125 per session but requires up to 70% fewer sessions. This means you’ll only need around 3 sessions, costing you £475. That’s much cheaper than older machines. More importantly, less pain and time!
Our laser tattoo removal is so effective that 95% of people only need between 4 – 6* sessions for a tattoo to be completely removed. In comparison, traditional laser systems could take as many as 15-20* sessions before a tattoo are completely removed.
Up to 40% savings against traditional laser systems
Up to 70% faster than traditional laser systems.
All staff are level 2 qualified tattoo removal specialists.
All consultations are free, but we do ask for a fully refundable deposit of £50 to book a consultation. This comes off the price of your first laser removal session. If you do for any reason decide to not proceed, we will refund the full £50 at no charge to you.
We have a number of machines that can fit different budgets, it all depends on how quick you want to remove your tattoo. Sessions at £75, block booking discounts are available for larger pieces.
Our laser system can remove almost all colours for most clients, but it can be dependent on the skin health of the individual and how deep the colour is.
Some colours are harder to fully remove than others, but in the rare circumstances where we’re unable to fully remove a coloured tattoo, we would recommend a client consider having a further cover-up tattoo.
Your skin will most likely be red and feel like it has a mild sunburn. This typically goes away after a couple of hours. There may also be some bruising. At times and with certain inks, there may be mild blistering that usually heals in about a week. After each treatment, you will be given instructions on how to care for your treated area.
We currently offer two machines for removal.
Our cheaper option is the most common machine used by tattoo removal companies. This is a high powered, multi-wavelength Nd:Yag. The best Nd:Yag available, which works well on black ink and is in a lower price bracket than our Pico focused machine.
Secondly, we have a dual-rod Pico focused machine. The pinnacle of available removal technology, our Pico machine takes fewer sessions than on the Nd:Yag, handles colours better and causes less thermal damage. This then reduces pain and speeds up recovery.
Many companies use tout-of-date machines that take more sessions to remove a tattoo. They operate old Nd:Yag models (the most common machines used) have low max power settings that then leads to a higher number of sessions. In many cases the tattoo will fade but not disappear completely.
Our Nd:Yag is more powerful than the forementioned, which allows for a progressive increase in power output in each session until the tattoo goes.
The Pico is even more efficient using pressure, rather than heat to break ink in a more effective manner. What this means for you is fewer sessions, less pain and a better result!
Our pricing is based on the amount of time it takes to complete a session. This is obviously tied to the size of the tattoo, but also how many colours there are in the tattoo. Another factor can be how complex it is (more colours and greater complexity, then requires longer sessions).
Amongst operators in the North West with comparable removal technology, we are the most competitively priced.
Our quotes are higher than operator’s using outdated machines. As discussed above, these old machines are radically inefficient in comparison to the modern lasers we use. The take home for you is that although individual sessions are more expensive, the reduced number facilitated by our machines means the whole removal process works out cheaper.
If you can sit through a tattoo session, you can certainly sit through a tattoo removal session. The session is generally 20% of the time that it takes to put the tattoo on your skin. We can stop when you need and break whenever suits.
This is a major bit of kit that most laser removal companies do not have and we offer it for free. We aim to make the session as comfortable for you as possible, and this is deemed as the newest generation of cryo therapy around. This amazing machine decreases the temperature of the skin, which reduces the risk of skin burns.
The same rules apply for tattoo removal as they do for a tattoo. Please wear comfortable clothes and ensure that you do not come on an empty stomach. Ensure the area of skin that we are going to laser has nothing on it, we will shave it for you, or you can shave it prior to attending. We ask you to not apply fake tan to the area or anything that can block the treatment.
You may choose to use numbing cream at your own risk, although we don’t suggest it. Sessions are relatively short, if you come prepared having eaten and remain relaxed, sessions are entirely manageable. We do offer a cooling machine as part of our service; this numbs the target area. Aloe Vera and Savlon keeps any post-session pain in check.
If you can sit through a tattoo, you will be more than fine sitting for removal.
We take bookings for an initial consultation by email or even through our social media accounts. If you include a picture with your enquiry, we can give you a rough quote before the consultation.
It’s impossible to say exactly how many sessions it will take; it varies too much from person to person. As well as the laser, removal times are also affected by the immune system. The better your body is a flushing ink out, the fewer sessions it will take.
What we can do is a comparative analysis of session numbers in comparison to weaker machines. Conservatively session numbers are reduced as follows:
High-powered Nd:Yag – 50% fewer sessions
Multi-wavelength Pico – 80% fewer sessions
Absolutely! Tattoo Removal Manchester was born out of the need to fade tattoos ready for a cover at Flesh Tattoo. A large portion of our business is preparing customers for a cover-up whether that be full removal or fading parts of the tattoo.
In general, there should be no scarring, this is especially true on the Pico machine (since its shorter pulse duration causes less thermal damage). In some cases, there is very minor scarring or lightening of the skin, but this is normally very subtle and hardly visible. It is very important for you to follow the aftercare documentation, as poor aftercare can create scarring.
We leave a minimum of 6 weeks between sessions to ensure that your skin is completely healed and ready before we carry out more tattoo removal work.
Laser removal is a non-invasive process, as such aftercare is relatively straightforward, but still very important. We recommend Aloe Vera to cool the area and Savlon to keep it clean. If you have any questions after a session, please contact us anytime.
