Tattoo Removal used to be about covering up. With RevLite Si Laser Tattoo Removal, even stubborn coloured tattoos can be treated.
On the back of a surge in demand for tattoo removal procedures, one Swansea clinic has made a substantial five figure investment in cutting-edge technology available nowhere else in Wales. 1192 Laser & Beauty Clinic, located in the Liberty Stadium Swansea, has acquired a RevLite machine, which represents the most advanced tattoo removal laser available. It is capable of removing all tattoo colours including light blue and green – the most stubborn to remove. The majority of lasers operate using two wavelengths. These are able to remove dark blue, red, and black ink. The RevLite has a further four wavelengths giving it the ability to remove all colours.
Demand for tattoo removal has boomed in the past ten years with some studies suggesting that while a fifth of the UK population has a tattoo, half regret having them and one in six would like them removed. This has created a multi-million pound industry in the UK. But the skill of removing a tattoo can be as intricate as putting it there in the first place. Many clinics remain completely unlicensed and some are only authorised to remove black ink. 1192 Laser & Beauty Clinic is the only facility in Swansea licensed to use a machine capable of removing all tattoo colours.
Donnalee Alford, owner of 1192, said:
“Tattoos are not easy to remove but colour tattoos can be really stubborn because of how deep the ink penetrates the skin. By using this state-of-the-art laser tattoo removal machine, the broken-down ink is absorbed by the body, which mimics the natural fading process. “The RevLite Laser Tattoo machine is the first in Wales able to remove all colours of tattoos and we are really pleased to be using it at 1192. “We have seen excellent results with it already and would encourage people who want a colour tattoo removed to come to us, as we are the only certified clinic to use the machine in Swansea.”
