A course of 6-10 treatments is often enough to remove the tattoo but occasionally more treatments are needed as removal can depend on the colour and depth of the tattoo ink being treated. A minimum of 6 weeks between treatments is recommended.

Laser tattoo removal can cause a stinging sensation but most people do not experience high level of discomfort during the treatment.
Redness in the area is common after the procedure, but subsides quickly. The skin will be sensitive after your treatment so we recommend high-factor sun block and also a soothing gel post treatment to help the skin heal. You may experience a lightening or darkening of the affected skin, though in most cases this returns to normal after six months.

At XO we use advanced laser technology to remove unwanted tattoos. Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe, and produces fantastic results. The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system.

XO offers nothing other than the best standard of pre-treatment, treatment and aftercare. We are committed to providing you with the best treatment plan specific to your needs. Arrange for a free consultation today to see how we can help. A patch test can be carried out within this consultation for £50 which is redeemed off you first treatment.


A tattoo can be faded adequately to re-cover. Your skin therapist will be able to advise how many sessions you are likely to need during your consultation.
