When a tattoo is performed, ink is implanted within the dermal layer of the skin. Tattoo ink particles are large in size, therefore the body’s natural defence system can’t break them down and they are permanently left in skin. To remove the unwanted tattoo ink we need to use a system that can help break down the tattoo ink into smaller particles for the body to remove through its natural waste disposal system. This is where laser tattoo removal comes into play.



The laser from the Nd:YAG machine is used to pass through the skin to enter the dermal layer where the tattoo ink is implanted, without causing damage to the surrounding tissue of the tattoo.

The laser works by creating a shock wave of heat and light that targets the tattoo ink causing it to shatter into smaller ink particles, making it easier for the immune system to remove them and causing the tattoo to fade. It may take a few sessions to completely remove the tattoo, an estimation of sessions will be discussed with you at your free consultation.




Before any laser tattoo removal treatment we ensure that all clients have a free consultation with one of our technicians. At the consultation we will assess the tattoo you require removing and advise how many sessions you are likely need. The following factors will be considered to assess the number of sessions you will need:

  • Type of tattoo (amateur or professional)
  • Pigment colours (brighter colours are harder to remove)
  • Density of pigment
  • Location on the body
  • Eyebrow removal needs fewer sessions

We offer discounted prices on treatment courses that are booked and paid for before the first session takes place.


Every person’s pain threshold is slightly different; therefore, all people will experience pain in a different way. Laser tattoo removal feels like an elastic band being pinged against the skin, an uncomfortable feeling but certainly tolerable.

Here at DC Micropigmentation we like our clients to feel at ease, we play relaxing music in the treatment room or you’re welcome to bring some headphones and play your own music, this can help distract you from the pain and get you through your treatment. Some areas may be more sensitive than others (bony areas). Pain tends to decrease in subsequent sessions due to the density of the pigment that has faded.


We will explain the full healing process and what to expect at your first consultation before any treatment has taken place. Straight after your treatment you should expect to see slight redness, some swelling and a small amount of blood spotting. We will provide all aftercare instructions on how to look after the treated area on leaving the clinic.
