Tattoo Removal treatment in Reading | Hilton Skin Clinics

Tattoo Removal (Laser)


It’s estimated over a fifth of adults in the UK today have at least one tattoo. So, it’s no surprise there are some significant tattoo regrets or mistakes made, with many wanting to get them removed.

Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective method of erasing unwanted tattoos or removing tattoo mistakes.



A relatively simple procedure that can produce incredible results, a precisely-targeted wavelength of light is applied to the tattooed area of skin to break down the pigment.

The pigment absorbs the light, causing cell damage which breaks down the tattoo. These tattoo fragments are then disposed of by the body’s immune system in the weeks following treatment.

Skin is consequently lightened and tattoo appearance is significantly minimised. And, with repeated treatments, tattoos can vanish completely.

Before treatment, your tattoo(s) will be analysed to see how effective the treatment is likely to be. Black tattoos are generally the easiest to remove, simply because the pigment within them is easily broken down.

Tattoos involving red are often more difficult to eliminate, requiring different wavelengths of light to be used.


During Treatment

Skin will be initially cleansed and you’ll be given goggles to wear.

The practitioner will pass the laser over the surface of the tattoo, with treatment length varying dependent on the size of the tattoo. You’re likely to experience a mild pricking sensation during treatment but, to minimise discomfort as much as possible, a local anaesthetic cream will be applied.

Afterwards, you’ll be advised to take good care of your skin, use a high-factor SPF and a tissue-repair cream – skin will be sensitive and redness may occur.

The number of treatments needed will differ dependent on tattoo colour and size. Generally, you’ll need treatments every 4-8 weeks, with 6-10 often being enough to erase the tattoo completely.
