Professional Laser Tattoo Removal with Medical-Grade Lasers
Body Complexion offers medical grade Q switch Laser Tattoo Removal. We have invested in the latest technology to ensure our clients see effective results in a safe and relatively pain-free manner.
The laser produces a very precise light for precise removal of ink from the dermis. This light breaks down the ink particles and they are then removed by the immune system in a natural process.
How Laser Tattoo Removal works
Our medical-grade laser machine works by producing short pulses of intense light that target the tattoo. These pulses pass straight through to the pigment, leaving the top layers of skin unharmed. When the light is absorbed, the ink molecules are broken down, allowing them to fragment into small particles and be absorbed into the bloodstream. The body then safely and naturally flushes these out of your system, causing the ink to disappear.
The procedure has been proven to be both safe and effective, with researchers having determined which wavelengths of light are most effective at removing ink without damaging surrounding skin. Furthermore, our treatment is available at an affordable cost.
The removal of a tattoo needn’t be complicated. We make the process as simple as possible, offering a free initial consultation, where we’ll assess your suitability for the procedure and supply you with the cost and pricing packages.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?
Most of our clients undertake an average of 6-12 treatments to achieve optimal results. While some fading may be apparent after only several sessions, more treatments are recommended to reach optimal results. Factors that contribute to how many treatments are required and if they will be effective include:
• The layering of tattoos
• The type of ink used
• The presence of particular colours in the tattoo that do not respond as well to removal, such as pinks and purples
• If the tattoo is new, it retains a large amount of ink
We will be able to estimate the number of laser tattoo removal treatments you require during our free initial consultation.
How often can I have a treatment?
Treatments may be performed approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart, giving the area sufficient time to heal between sessions. This minimises the chances of scarring and other complications.
Does it hurt?
While medical-grade Q-Switched laser treatments can cause slight discomfort, this is usually only minor, and is a similar sensation to a rubber band snapping on your skin. Numbing cream may be applied to help reduce the sensation.
Are there any side effects of Laser Tattoo Removal?
Some side effects are possible with laser tattoo removal, though these are usually minor and do not last long. The most common of side effects for medical-grade Q-Switched lasers include:
• Very minor blistering
These temporary side effects generally last less than a week.
Can the area be re-tattooed?
Absolutely, once the treated area has fully healed, it’s perfectly fine for the skin to be re-tattooed.
What does laser tattoo removal cost?
We offer a free initial consultation, where we’ll provide you with an estimated quote for complete treatment. Professional Tattoo Removal is more affordable than you’d think, with prices starting from just $60 per session. As tattoos differ in size and complexity, laser tattoo removal cost can vary depending on your circumstances.
• The area must not receive any sun exposure for a minimum of one month prior to treatment. Following treatment, an SPF30 or greater sunscreen must be used daily to protect the treated area.
• Avoid any form of tanning throughout your treatment. This includes accidental sun exposure, fake tans, colour building moisturisers and the use of solariums.
• If there is hair where the tattoo is located, please ensure you shave the treatment area the day prior to treatment.
• Use cool packs and/or soothing gel for comfort and to reduce swelling.
• Wash area gently every day (do not scrub). After 24 hours, apply a paraffin type product to keep crusty areas moist.
• Do not pick or scratch any crusting that may be present, as this will dramatically increase the risk of infection and/or scarring.
• Until the redness and crusting has healed, avoid the use of scented lotions, soaps or creams containing AHAs
• Avoid excessive scrubbing and shaving
• Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools or spas
