Tattoo Removal

Have you fallen out of love with your tattoo? We can help – professional tattoo removal available at Bare Essentials beauty salon in West Hagbourne.

You don’t have to be stuck with that tattoo you don’t love any more, we can drastically fade if not completely remove old tattoos, leaving you free of any reminders.

We use the state of the art Zeolight system to carry out our effective tattoo removal treatments; it’s gentle, safe, and can give amazing results, depending on the size, colour and age of your tattoo.

The advanced light technology we use in our skin clinic works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through your skin and break the tattoo ink down into tiny particles. The precise way that the light is targeted means that it’s as safe as possible and there’s no damage to your skin. The broken-down tattoo particles are then removed via your own immune system. It’s not a one-off treatment and tattoo removal can be a long process; it tends to take several treatment sessions to get a successful result, and you’ll also have to leave regular intervals between sessions.

We think that the Zeolight tattoo removal system provides the most effective and the safest method possible for removing unwanted tattoos, and we’ve seen it give excellent results; hopefully a permanent fading of your unwanted tattoo from the first zap. The system is suitable for use on a wide range of skin tones, is completely safe for use on all areas of the body and works on all tattoo pigments and colours.

How Long Does Laser Tattoo Removal Take?

It usually takes several treatment sessions to remove a tattoo successfully, the number of sessions needed depends upon the colour of the tattoo ink as well as other factors, eg: size and you will need regular intervals between sessions.
An ammeter tattoo can take 1-3 treatments as the ink does not go down so deep. Other tattoos can take 6-12 sessions but will fade after every session you have. You would leave about 6-8 weeks in between treatments.
It takes 7 days for the body to get rid of the toxins & therefore we can only treat 6 inches by 2 inches at a time as the body can’t tolerate anymore than this. We can see you again a week later to treat you again on another area.

Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?

The procedure can cause a stinging sensation, which can be eased by applying a local anaesthetic numbing cream which can be purchased online. Most people experience slight discomfort but agree it’s not as painful as getting a tattoo. After the treatment it may feel like you have mild sunburn. You may experience swelling, bruising & blistering although these are not very common & go down quickly.

How Much Does It Cost?

Tattoo removal has become a lot more affordable over the years.
It will depend on the size of your tattoo which will be discussed when you come in for your consultation & patch test with Becky.
You will get a discount if a block of sessions is booked & paid for.
If you’d like an idea of cost, email Becky a picture of your tattoo with the measurements & she will give you a rough guide on how much it will cost per treatment.
Treatments can be spread out every 6-8 weeks when you visit the salon which helps with the cost.
Most people are surprised how reasonable it is to get a tattoo removed & wish they’d started it sooner!
