Tattoo Removal: Because Some Things Are best Forgotten

Pamela Anderson was right when she said “tattoos are like stories – they are symbolic of important moments of your life.” Unfortunately, they may also be symbols of moments you’d prefer to forget – like that time you just drank too much alcohol in whilst on holiday and woke up with ink on your back, or maybe the time you got the name of “The One” etched into your skin, before deciding they weren’t “The One” after all.


But before you reach for the cheese-grater or the bottle of hydrochloric acid, take a look at the tattoo removal services offered by Hilton Skin Clinics!

How does it work?

Modern tattoo removal techniques are incredibly sophisticated, and far gentler than receiving a tattoo in the first place! Hilton Skin Clinics in Reading uses a beam of light that targets the ink in your skin. This light is calibrated to a specific wavelength that intentionally damages the skin cells around the tattoo, breaking up the ink.

The ink is then naturally absorbed into your body and is harmlessly disposed of by your immune system.

But it hurts, right?

People undergoing laser tattoo removal usually report a mild prickling sensation. This is not too painful, and certainly far less painful than going under the tattoo artist’s needle. However, local anaesthetic can be administered to make the process as comfortable as possible, and we will give you goggles to protect your eyes from the light.


Hilton Skin Clinics in Reading has become a popular choice for tattoo removal in Berkshire thanks to our high-quality equipment, treatments after care. We will give you information on what pain medication to use, as well as advice on what to do should you experience any discomfort post-treatment.

How effective will it be?

Some tattoos are more difficult to remove than others, just as some tattoos are more difficult to apply.

After each treatment we recommend a recovery period of between four and ten weeks before your next appointment. This minimises damage to the skin and will improve the end result.

Contact Hilton Skin Clinics in Reading today and banish those unwanted memories from your body!
