Health conditions and laser treatment

Laser session on a blackout tattoo

Providing safe treatments to all our clients

As a professional business we have strict procedures which we follow for every client, to ensure safety is always at the top of our agenda.

All new clients will have a consultation with their laser technician to assess their tattoo, discuss the treatments and have any questions answered.

If our client is happy to proceed, they will be asked to complete a consultation form. This form asks about the client’s medical history, allergies, medications being taken and skin type.

Some medical conditions may rule out laser treatment

Unfortunately, some medical conditions can be a contraindication to laser tattoo removal so the treatments will not be able to go ahead.

Other medical conditions may need permission from the client's doctor or consultant to go ahead.

The same goes for medications, some medications can cause adverse reactions to laser tattoo removal so a discussion with the client's doctor may be needed.

We'll talk you through any other info we may need about the medications you are taking.

Skin typing

The client will also be asked to complete a skin typing form, this asks questions such as natural skin colour, how the skin reacts to the sun and the last time the treatment area was exposed to the sun.

This form allows us to determine the client's skin type and ensure it is suitable for our lasers.

Consenting to treatment

As medical history is so important when it comes to laser tattoo removal, our clients all sign a consent form before every treatment to confirm that nothing has changed medically. If anything has changed between treatments, this will be assessed and treatment will only go ahead if there are no new contraindications.
