What to expect during a laser session with us

At the start of your laser session we will have a look at your tattoo and see how it has healed/faded from your test patches or previous session.

You will be asked to read a consent form and sign that you are happy to proceed with the treatment.

While we are setting up for treatment, we can apply a cool pack to the area if you wish and you can grab a stressball to squeeze during the treatment if this helps you.

You and your laser technician will put on safety glasses and you are ready to start. We understand that some people find the treatments uncomfortable and everyone reacts differently to this, so we will work with you to make you as comfortable as possible. If you want to talk we will chat to you, if you prefer to stay quiet and zone out, we're happy for you to do this.

You can ask for a short break if you need to – Hollie has lots of short breaks when she has her treatment to her shoulder, so completely understands that this is necessary for some people.

Once the treatment is finished, we will take a photo of the treatment area, (for insurance purposes) and then we will apply cream and a dressing for you. You do not need to worry about dressing your tattoo yourself whilst it is healing, we just dress it immediately after treatment to protect the area for a short while whilst it is still fresh.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have, even if you forget to ask whilst in the studio with us. We have clients texting us with any queries and we will respond personally as soon as we can to help – all part of the personal service you get from a small family business! 

Still have questions?
