What our customers say

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

Jon - Rawtenstall

I couldn’t recommend Tattoo Removal Manchester more. Matt was really friendly and talked through the whole process.

Phil - Bury

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.

Hannah - Middleton

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.

What makes our laser tattoo removal system different?

Unlike other laser machines which pulses 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 not able to remove colour tattoos.

What are the costs?

Don’t be put off by the lower cost per sessions you may see from a tattoo removal studio which uses older systems. Let’s do the math. If it costs £30 per session using an older laser system and it takes 10 sessions, it will cost you £300 to have your tattoo removed.

Our system costs £70 per session but requires up to 70% fewer sessions. This means you’ll only need around 3 sessions, costing you £210. That’s 30% cheaper than older machines. 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 is completely removed.

Up to 70% faster than traditional laser systems.

Your questions, answered

How much does your laser removal cost?

All consultations are free, and we charge £70 per session. Block booking discounts are available for larger pieces.

Why do you charge £70 per session when other studios cost £30?

Good question.

We charge more per session due to the skill and expertise required of our staff and the investment the company has made to purchase a state-of-the-art laser system which is second to none.

We would like to think that the benefits of using our modern laser system outweigh the con of paying a little more per session.

If you do a side by side comparison of the price when taking the number of sessions needed into consideration, then our service actually comes up around 30% cheaper and 70% faster than our competitors.

How does your laser work to remove tattoos?

The laser emits ultra-short pulses of light that are preferentially absorbed into the colours of tattoo ink in your skin. 

The light enters the skin at a speed that is too fast to heat the tissues, instead, it produces a ‘shock wave’ effect that breaks up the ink particles into smaller pieces, the body then recognises these particles as something that shouldn’t be there and attacks it. The particles are then removed naturally via the body’s own elimination system.

Can you treat all colours?

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 of the tattoo 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. 

Are there any health risks with laser tattoo removal?

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 detailed instructions on how to care for your treated area.

Does it hurt?

Patients have reported that laser tattoo removal feels like a rubber band snapping quickly on your skin. Over a prolonged period of time, this snapping will inevitably cause discomfort. 

In order to make each patient as comfortable as possible, we offer anaesthetic (numbing) cream that can be put on the tattoo before each of your treatments. This makes the experience much less painful.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you’ll need will completely depend on the size of the tattoo you want removing.

Our certified tattoo removal specialist will be able to advise you on how many sessions your tattoo will need when you book your free consultation.

However, in most circumstances, our laser system can remove most tattoos within 4-6 sessions; significantly less than other tattoo removal laser systems.

How long will it take?

Your tattoo needs time to heal in between sessions as this is the process of your body breaking down dispersed tattoo ink and flushing it out of your body.

We typically schedule sessions at a minimum 4-6 weeks apart so we can allow the skin to fully heal.

If you require 4 sessions for your tattoo to be removed, expect your tattoo to be fully removed within 8-12 weeks from the first session.
