Why choose Clean Skin?

Not only are we a QLD Radiation Health Licensed Operator, our Laser and Clinic are also QLD Radiation Health Certified but WE UNDERSTAND HOW TATTOO REMOVAL WORKS which in turn makes treatments safe, quick, as comfortable as possible and brings fast results!

Are treatments painful?

Everyones pain tolerances are different so we can't give you a yes or no answer on this one. Our Operator has not only been Tattooed but has also had Laser Treatments and can therefore relate to your situation and keep you as comfortable as possible throughout your treatments. 

Can I use Numbing Cream for Tattoo Removal?

Yes you can, although effectiveness of numbing creams vary from client to client. Numbing Creams can be purchased from a pharmacy and applied before treatment as directed by your Pharmacist.

Can I get Laser Tattoo Removal if I'm TRYING TO CONCEIVE, ARE PREGNANT OR BREAST FEEDING?

The short answer, NO! There hasn't been enough research done to determine whether Laser Tattoo Removal is or isn't harmful to unborn babies.

Does Tattoo Removal leave a scar?

No, but there may be an increase in natural skin pigment after treatment. The increase in pigment in most cases only lasts three months, before it naturally disappears. In instances where a Laser is used at a very high energy level, permanent whitening of the skin can occur. At Clean Skin Laser Tattoo Removal there are no unnecessary short cuts taken to get your Tattoo removed quickly at the expense of your body.

How many sessions do I need?

Results vary between clients but on average it takes 7 treatments to completely remove a Tattoo.

Can I get a Tattoo over skin I've had laser treatment on?

YES!  Tattoos can be completely removed or lightened to be tattoo'd over.

How soon after getting a new Tattoo can I get it removed?

Before Laser Tattoo Removal can begin the Tattoo has to be 100% healed (healing takes between 8 to 12 weeks). Starting Laser Tattoo Removal too soon can lead to scarring and skin discolouration.

What Laser does Clean Skin Laser Tattoo Removal use?

The machine is called a "Clinical Lucas Plus" which is a Q-Switched Laser with a high powered 2 wavelength Nd:YAG Q-Switched system. If you would like more information on this Laser please click the link below.

Do you treat all skin types?

In reference to the Fitzpatrick Skin Scale, we treat skin types 1 to 4. Treatment of skin types 5 and 6 is very unpredictable with the risk of Keloid Scarring, Hyperpigmentation and Hypopigmentation significantly increased therefore we do not treat skin type 5 or 6. You can find more information on the Fitzpatrick Scale here: https://www.healthline.com/health/beauty-skin-care/fitzpatrick-skin-types

Can I bring a friend, partner or my kids with me?

Although our Clinic allows only the Laser Operator, the person to be treated plus 1 other person to be present during treatment due to the current COVID 19 situation as per our COVID Safe Plan we can no longer have anyone else in the clinic besides the Laser Operator(s) and client being treated at any one time. We have an outdoor waiting area for any additional company but during treatment this area is unsupervised and therefore may not be suitable for children.

Tattoo Removal PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE

·         Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams for 4 weeks before treatment and refrain from using these products and exposing your tattoo to the sun throughout the course of your treatments.

·         During consultation please inform Laser Operator if you are taking any of the listed medications prior to treatment to reduce any risk of photosensitivity.

·         TELL YOUR LASER OPERATOR BEFORE TREATMENT IF YOUR MEDICAL CONDITIONS CHANGE OR IF YOU START TAKING ANY ADDITIONAL MEDICATIONS THROUGHOUT YOUR TREATMENT PLAN.

·         If you are having treatment on an area that has body hair, you may shave the area 2-3 days prior to treatment. This is optional because this laser does not remove hair but do note that if unshaven, the hair will turn white during treatment due to the absorption of the pigment in the hair but will return to its original colour as the hair re-grows.

·         DO NOT shave on the treatment day to reduce any risk of cuts or open wound or sensitivity to the skin. We have clippers in our clinic to shave the treatment area.

·         If you don’t deal with any kind of sun-burn type heat sensation very well always tell your operator prior to treatment or if you experience any discomfort during treatment so the energy can be adjusted to your individual pain tolerance. As the treatment progresses, you will be able to deal with more energy as you gradually build tolerance to the discomfort.

 

Tattoo Removal POST-TREATMENT ADVICE

·         There will be redness, sensitivity, soreness, swelling, bruising and/or small blood blisters after each treatment. This is normal but please touch the treated area as little as possible except to cool it with an ice pack.

·         Apply ice packs if necessary in the first 2 hours to reduce discomfort and minimise the risk of blistering.

·         Keep treated area as dry as possible for 24 hours after treatment. No swimming for 3 days after treatment as Chlorine and salt aggravate treatment areas and increase sensitivity.

·         Avoid exercise for 24 hours after treatment (especially in Summer) to avoid excess temperature in the treated area.

·         Blistering is always a possibility, they are superficial and rarely results in any scarring. They should be treated like sunburn or any other sunburn blister. DO NOT burst blisters or pick at the scab as this may cause infection and/or scars to form.

·         Apply a High Performance Vitamin E Cream to the treated area as often as possible.

·         Sun exposure must be avoided for preferably at least 2 months after treatment as exposure to the sun may intensify lighter pigmentation.

·         Keep the treated area completely covered from the sun throughout your entire treatment plan but if sun exposure is unavoidable apply previously mentioned Vitamin E as well as a minimum SPF 30+ Sun Screen.

·         Purchasing an Antiseptic Powder is highly recommended to help accelerate the healing process, especially in the unlikely event of the skin being broken during treatment. It is also handy to have in your First Aid Kit at home.

·         The skin is fragile after treatment, if applying makeup pat gently. Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment as long as the skin is not broken. If the skin is broken apply previously mentioned Antiseptic Powder.

CANCELLATION POLICY

At Clean Skin Laser Tattoo Removal we require a minimum of 24 hours notice for all cancellations and/or changes of appointments, this allows enough time for your appointment to be reallocated to other clients. We also understand that situations can arise where 24 hours notice is not possible to give, therefore we allow the cancellation and/or change of appointments with less than 24 hours notice ONCE ONLY with a fee of 20% of the quoted treatment price incurred each appointment cancelled and/or changed thereafter.

We trust that the fairness of this policy is evident and that you understand that it applies to every client every time. This policy is important for us to continue to provide a high level or care and timely service.
