Tattoo Removal At Fade Lasers

Deciding to invest in a tattoo is a very big decision to make and one that some of us can take a little lightly. You need to be sure of the design as it is something that you would have to display on your body for the rest of your life. Tattoos have led to some really big regrets and “face-palm moments” for many people… until now.


Your tattoo removal with the PicoSure at Fade Lasers shouldn’t take any more than 6 treatment sessions, but if it does, don’t worry; we have a six treatment guarantee for all of our patients. This means that even if it takes longer to get rid of your tattoo pigment completely, you will still only pay for the 6 treatments.


Here at Fade Lasers, Tamany and our highly experienced laser team offer tattoo removal with our PicoSure Laser, one of only a handful of its kind in the UK, and the only one within a 160 mile radius of our clinic. Officially the fastest laser tattoo removal method on the market, after just one treatment session we can achieve immediately noticeable results with up to a 75% clearance.

As opposed to traditional laser tattoo removal, PicoSure requires considerably fewer sessions in order to achieve a more complete removal in comparison to the usual 10–20 sessions that other lasers require. This is because our laser uses a unique, patented PressureWave process that creates an impact that shatters tattoo ink into minuscule particles that are more easily broken down and removed by your body. Other lasers simply heat the tattoo particles to make minor size reductions in comparison to the effects of the PicoSure Laser. Depending on the size of your tattoo, complete removal with no trace could be achieved after just 4 sessions, reducing the amount of time you’re having to take out of your day to undergo treatment. PicoSure can treat all ink colours and just 1 session is all you need to start noticing impressive clearance results, even on darker inks. As a result, PicoSure is FDA approved and can boast a worldwide recommendation rate of 95%!

There’s no longer any need to live in regret or embarrassment as a result of naïve and impulsive tattoo choices, thanks to our innovative laser tattoo removal treatment here at Fade Lasers. Our team are committed to a level of perfection with every treatment, and patient satisfaction through an attentive and friendly approach, making your time with us as comfortable as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Laser Treatment Work?

Pigmentation Removal – Pulses of light energy are absorbed by the melanin in your skin cells, causing them to scatter and break down without damaging the surrounding tissues. Your immune or lymphatic system is then capable of removing these dead cells from your skin.

Tattoo Removal –  Patented PressureWave laser technology delivers an impact that shatters the tattoo particles so that they are easily disposed of by your body.

Are There Any Side Effects To Laser Treatment?

Discomfort is minimal, with little risk of side effects, due to the gentle nature of mild laser treatments.

Is There Any Recovery Time Involved?

Immediately after your treatments, you are free to resume your routine as you normally would. No downtime is required, though we do recommend light maintenance in some cases, such as sunscreen application.

Am I Suitable For Laser Treatment?

By booking a consultation at Fade Lasers, we can properly assess your wants and needs to see if you would benefit from laser treatments. However, our PicoSure laser is suitable for treating benign pigmented lesions and tattoos of all colours on most areas of the body.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Whether you’re looking to treat skin pigmentation or remove a tattoo mistake, you will begin to see results immediately after your first session. The amount of sessions you’ll require following this depends on factors such as the depth and size of the treatment area, making it hard to give an exact figure without a full consultation.

How Does Laser Treatment Differ From Other Treatment Options?

Our laser treatment techniques differ in the way that they penetrate the skin to target the source of the problem, without damaging the surface of the skin. This means a significant reduction in discomfort and downtime.

Is Laser Treatment Painful?

PicoSure laser treatment is mild and gentle, resulting in minimal discomfort in comparison to other cosmetic lasers on the market.

Are Black Tattoos Harder To Remove With Laser Tattoo Removal?

It is a widely perceived misconception that black ink would be the hardest to remove, when in actual fact it is the easiest, followed by red. This is because darker colours will absorb the energy from the laser far easier than lighter colours. That said, the PicoSure Laser can treat any colour.
