5 Leading Tattoo Removal Clinics To Consider In Sydney

Posted by Andrew on Dec 4, 2017 4:44:43 PM

Each year at Detail Tattoo Removal Specialist we see 1000’s of clients at our clinic in Sydney. Many of our clients found us during their research phase and many have moved over to us after beginning their tattoo removal with another clinic. Since we are Sydney’s longest operating laser tattoo removal clinic (opened in 2010), we have seen everything from good results to some seriously horrific damage.

Our responsibility lies in providing honest and accurate information to anyone potentially looking at removing his or her tattoos. In NSW there is no regulation controlling tattoo removal operators therefore consumers are left to look after themselves. Due to this lack of regulation there are many unfortunate individuals that have been scarred physically and scammed financially by unprofessional operators. When you choose a reputable tattoo removal clinic you should expect the tattoo to be cleared with no scars and within a reasonable period of time.

Warning Signs You Chose The Wrong Tattoo Removal Clinic

Posted by Andrew on Dec 3, 2017 5:18:38 PM

This may surprise you, tattoo removal is one industry where consumers are not protected. If you've had laser tattoo removal before and never went back, or if you've lost count of the number of treatments you've had because you're not getting a result, you need to read this. 

Not getting a result is bad enough.....your skin being damaged to cause scarring, blisters and excessive bleeding is inexcusable. When you pay for laser treatment, you expect to get a good result and you should. Your skin is your largest organ and it needs to be respected. Unfortunately due to the lack of regulation regarding laser tattoo removal in NSW, consumers are not protected. Therefore, you need to be much more diligent when choosing your clinic.

Posted by Andrew on Nov 1, 2017 10:45:09 AM

You wouldn’t get into a car with an inexperienced and unlicensed driver, so why do people put themselves under a high-powered laser with people that are not experienced or qualified to use a laser? In the wrong hands, lasers can and do inflict serious damage, so why are people so trusting? Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Damaging your skin opens the gateway to infection and permanent scarring.

Latest Technology For Multi-Colour Tattoo Removal

Posted by Andrew on Oct 4, 2017 3:30:48 PM

There is a lot of science behind removing a multi-coloured tattoo by laser. The reason why multi-coloured tattoos are far more difficult to remove than black tattoos is because different colours of ink pigment absorb different levels of energy before they shatter. Black is the easiest pigment to remove, because it is the darkest and absorbs the most energy. Green, blue and yellow are some of the most difficult. In the past, this has meant that multi-coloured tattoos required complicated (and costly) treatment regimes, using different lasers to treat different colours.

How To Safely Remove Cosmetic Tattoos

Posted by Andrew on Jun 8, 2017 12:52:12 PM

Have you ever noticed people with blue, grey or red eyebrows that look really out of place as they don’t match their complexion or hair tone? Chances are that they have had cosmetic eyebrow tattooing and the colour has faded to a different colour over time. Or they have tried to have them removed but have been left with a different colour, or darker eyebrows.
