If you have been searching for “Tattoo removal near me” look no further.
How it works:
Q10 is a high-quality multi-application Q-Switched nd: YAG laser which can effectively remove tattoos, including semi-permanent tattoos such as eyebrows. It can remove targeted pigments selectively with minimal impact on the dermis and epidermis. The PTP mode ensures maximum comfort and fast skin regeneration.
What to expect:
This high power nd: YAG laser with four wavelengths, ensures less pain, faster skin regeneration, less pih and other minimal side effects. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the most comfortable colour to treat. Other colours can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment colour.
Removal of cosmetic tattoos such as semi-permanent eyebrows is faster and requires fewer treatments than the tattoo removal. To ensure your tattoo removal experience is as comfortable as possible, we use a specialist laser cooling system before, during and after your tattoo removal treatments to provide pain relief and protection for your skin.
We offer telephone or face to face consultations; enabling you to come along and meet the team to discuss any queries you may have and, to ensure the most suitable treatment is prescribed.
All machines and equipment within our Norwich Clinic are Medical grade, CE and FDA approved.
To ensure maximum comfort, we use the Cryo-Zet air cooler. This state of art system produces cool air to as low as -35 degrees, this increases comfort, accelerates recovery and reduces side effects.

Many factors are used to determine the number of sessions each individual patient and unique tattoo will need. These factors include the age of the tattoo, the colours in the tattoo, the density of ink, the location of the tattoo, patient health, and more. During your consultation, we will assess your tattoo using these factors and provide a rough estimate number of treatments your tattoo will need. On average, most patients need between 6-10 treatment.
Laser sessions are very quick and last as little as 5- 15 minutes, less on semi-permanent eyebrows. The time it takes to achieve complete removal varies greatly depending on your unique tattoo. A healing period of approximately eight weeks is required between each laser session to give your skin enough time to heal.
The rate at which your tattoo fades and skin heals relies heavily upon your immune system. Since your immune system does most of the heavy lifting for removing the ink from your skin, it’s important to stay healthy. Patients with a strong, healthy immune system usually experience faster fading. We recommend drinking lots of water and staying hydrated, exercising, and refraining from smoking to increase your removal results. Full pre-and post-care will be provided verbally and via email.
Unfortunately, not, we recommend waiting 6 to 12 weeks before tattoo removal can begin. Your skin needs time to completely heal and remove any excess ink. If we were to treat you sooner than this, there is potential to cause damage to your skin. Also, the laser would likely be targeting ink that would be cleared by the immune system anyway.
Q10 Laser tattoo removal is the safest, most effective non-invasive method for removing unwanted ink. Other methods such as dermabrasion, and excision are invasive, painful, and almost always results in scarring. On the contrary, our medical-grade, FDA and CE-approved laser uses advanced light energy to safely penetrate through the skin and target ink particles with minimal damage to the surrounding skin.
Patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, itchiness, blistering, scabbing, and skin discolouration. These side effects are natural reactions to the laser and will heal over the weeks following each treatment. As long as the correct aftercare instructions are followed, your skin will heal well without any scarring.
It is easy to believe that tattoo removal will leave your skin looking the same as it was before your tattoo. In the best case, our laser tattoo removal protocols leave a nearly imperceptible trace of your tattoo. When you look at tattoo removal outcomes, greater than 75% fading of the tattoo is considered a satisfactory removal from the perspective of most tattooed individual. Greater than 75% fading generally means you can see ghosting, or an outline and the tattoo is not recognizable from a reasonable distance. Results differ from person to person, this will be discussed at your consultation appointment.
