Laser tattoo removal costs in UK
Laser tattoo removal is the most effective and widely available method to remove any unwanted tattoo, be it big or small.
This kind of method has been carried out successfully for approximately 20 years. However, it is not completely free of hassle: laser removal can be a little painful and for bigger and more complex tattoos can take a long time and a lot of care.
If you have decided that a tattoo, for one reason or another, has become unwanted to the point that you need to remove it, the best thing to do is to find a experienced practitioner in treating the kind of tattoo you want to get rid of.
Also, check the type of laser that a tattoo removal clinic actually use: these should always be Q-Switched, while clinics using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are better avoided.
Q-switched laser are generally better where coloured tattoos are involved, as some some tattoo pigments respond well to one laser but not to another, and green does not respond well to treatment at all. In some cases, the laser removal process may not eliminate the tattoo completely but rather make the area more apt for a cover up.
With all these variables involved, the cost of a treatment varies notably. The number of sessions required depends, in fact, on the tattoo type, size and colour. Obviously, any serious clinic will offer you a free consultation.
Generally speaking, a very small tattoo may be removed in few sessions, with an average cost ranging from £50 to £69 and over. The removal of a small sized tattoo may cost from £100, a medium from £150 and so on. Very large tattoos will require to be priced according to their specific features.
