Dr Alun Davies leading Wales Laser Clinic, Newport, has just introduced the world’s most powerful, tri-wavelength tattoo removal laser – The Lynton Q-Plus C.
This unique laser platform is designed to completely remove all tattoos, something that other lasers simply can’t do, pointing to Wales Laser Clinic as the clinic of choice for superior tattoo removal treatment. Its opening coincides with the new Friars Walk development in the heart of Newport city centre.
Their brand of choice, Lynton, is the leading manufacturing and supplier of aesthetic technologies to an extensive list of high profile clients around the world, including the NHS. A team of Ph.D. scientists’ design, develop and test all their products to ensure that their systems achieve the most effective, but safest results possible.
Wales laser Clinic is led by GP Dr Alun Davies, who also works in Sports Medicine, and can be heard on BBC radio Wales, and ensures that all treatments are carried out safely and effectively. He also spends much of his time teaching cosmetic medicine to other doctors.
HOW DOES A TATTOO REMOVAL LASER WORK?
Q-Switched Lasers generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse and are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatment. The very short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.
HOW DOES THE SKIN LOOK AFTER TREATMENT?
An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL?
Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. As Wales Laser Clinic is overseen by industry leaders a local anaesthetic cream can be used or a skin cooling device may be utilised to reduce any discomfort.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
This depends on several factors, including the density and colour of inks and the age of the tattoo.
Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 3 to 8 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.
