VersaPulse is one of the most popular solutions for those looking to have an unwanted tattoo removed.
Based on a laser system, VersaPulse works by emitting a range of laser light wavelengths to the tattooed area, with different wavelengths used for different colours. This style of tattoo removal means the pigment can be targeted without any damage being inflicted on the healthy skin beneath.
A single laser frequency is used for each colour, so those with multi-coloured tattoos will require a number of different lasers to effectively remove all parts of the unwanted tattoo.
The treatment to remove a tattoo will require a number of sessions as the laser light slowly breaks down the coloured pigment, until none remains. The broken down pigment is absorbed by the body and then dealt with by the immune system. With each treatment, a small part of the tattoo will fade away as the pigment is broken down. This will need to be repeated until no traces of the tattoo remain.
The exact number of VersaPulse sessions required will be determined by a number of factors. This includes the size and depth of the tattoo and the number of colours or pigments used in the design. The procedure to remove the unwanted tattoo can be carried out once a month or once every other month. On average, between eight and 20 treatments are usually required
The effectiveness of tattoo removal can depend on the type of ink used, and the depth the pigment sits at within the skin. Around 100 tattoo inks are in use currently and your consultant will need to know both the depth and type of ink in order to give you a clear idea of how successful the treatment will be.
This procedure starts at around £225 depending on the size of the tattoo which needs removing.
