Laser Tattoo Removal
Experience the revolutionary tattoo removal capabilities of our state-of-the-art Micro Picosecond machine at The Brow Girl. Positioned between a Q-Switched ND.YAG and a Picosecond machine, this cutting-edge technology is your gateway to lightening or removing various tattoo types, including brow tattoos, lip tattoos, tattooed beauty spots/ freckles, and body tattoos.
This advanced machine excels at breaking down tattoo particles into smaller fragments, significantly minimising trauma to the skin. This innovative approach expels ink faster, resulting in a reduction in the number of procedures required for our clients.
Understanding that each tattoo removal journey is unique, we acknowledge that several sessions are often necessary to remove a tattoo completely. The number of sessions required is influenced by factors such as the intensity and depth of the coloured skin (pigment) and its saturation (density).

Tailoring your Laser
At The Brow Girl, we understand that every tattoo and client is unique. Our pricing structure reflects the size of the tattoo, ensuring you receive a tailored treatment program. Consultations and patch tests before your first visit allow us to create a bespoke plan based on factors such as tattoo age, size, quality, and colours.
How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
Laser tattoo removal selectively targets tattoo ink using high-energy laser beams. The Micro Picosecond machine, a pinnacle of advanced technology, emits a specific light wavelength that effectively breaks down large ink particles into smaller, more manageable ones.
In detail, the laser emits short pulses of energy that are absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing it to break down. This process initiates the body's natural response, prompting the immune system to clear away the fragmented ink. The removal continues progressively after each session, allowing for a gradual but effective elimination of the tattoo.
Our expert team is equipped to handle tattoo removal on any area of the body, regardless of size. This includes small tattoo removal from delicate areas such as the face. Trust in the precision and expertise of our laser tattoo removal services to provide you with a tailored solution for your unique tattoo removal needs.
Laser Tattoo Removal - What to expect?
Embarking on your laser tattoo removal journey with The Brow Girl is a straightforward and safe process. If you've never undergone laser tattoo removal before, we understand that uncertainty can be daunting. Here's a guide on what to expect when you book our tattoo removal service in Baldock, Hertfordshire:
Your journey begins with a thorough consultation, a crucial step for both first-timers and those familiar with laser tattoo removal. During this session, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your preferences, whether you want the entire tattoo removed or just a part of it. Our team is here to address any questions or concerns you may have. Together, we'll devise a bespoke treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
Prior to the actual treatment, a patch test will be conducted to ensure your safety. This step helps identify and prevent allergic reactions or extreme side effects. Assuming the patch test proceeds smoothly, our experienced team will initiate your laser tattoo removal treatment. While some clients report slight discomfort, often likened to the sensation of getting a tattoo, rest assured that the process is both manageable and safe. With each session, you'll observe a gradual reduction in the visibility of your tattoo.
Post-treatment care is crucial for ensuring optimal results and maintaining the health of your skin. Your practitioner will provide detailed guidance on aftercare practices tailored to your specific needs. Generally, we recommend avoiding contact with heat sources, protecting your skin from UV light (including the sun and sunbeds), and refraining from intense exercise for 24-48 hours following each session.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs
How does laser tattoo removal work?
When you get a tattoo, ink is injected into the dermis. In the days following, you may notice the tattoo naturally fades as a result of ink escaping through the surface of the skin, or being cleared away by the body's natural response to a foreign substance. The final tattoo is made up of ink pigment which is too deep to have escaped through the surface of the skin, and too large to have been removed by the body.
Laser tattoo removal selectively targets tattoo ink with light energy in the form of a laser. The beam breaks down large particles of ink into smaller ink particles that can be more easily cleared away by the body's immune system.
When to Strike?
We have to allow 6 months for the ink to heal in the skin when targeting a tattoo on the body. We allow 2 months for cosmetic tattoos to heal in the skin. We have to allow enough time for the tissue to repair and recover before performing such an invasive procedure to avoid scarring and further trauma.
One of the most important factors when preparing for a procedure is to ensure that you do not have an active tan. You must confirm that you have not been exposed to UV (Sun/Sun Beds) for 30 days. The production of melanin in the skin can cause scarring when exposed to the laser. You must also not be exposed to UV for 30 days after the procedure. (It can be covered if desired.)
Can a tattoo be removed completely?
Yes, complete tattoo removal is possible. The amount of sessions required will of course differ from client to client.
How many sessions are required?
It completely depends on the client's skin tissue and anatomy, the tattoo itself and the machine used. At The Brow Girl, we use an advanced Class 4 Medical Grade Picosecond system which will achieve the desired results in less sessions in comparison to alternative systems.
Can you remove Cosmetic Tattoos on the face?
Does the procedure hurt?
Pain varies from client to client. Our Picosecond system has a very short pulse and is much less painful in comparison to alternative systems.
Can I have this done while pregnant and/or nursing?
No, you cannot.
I have a previous brow tattoo, do I need this removing prior to getting my brows done with you?
The answer is, possibly! I can not answer for sure without a consultation first. Seeing your brows in person as well as working out what you're looking to achieve as well as expectations. There are lots of variables here, but it is not always necessary to have complete removal prior. Find out more on our PMU removal page
What is the difference between body and PMU tattoos?
Body Tattoos are deeper in the 4th layer of skin, and Cosmetic Tattoos are superficial (supposedly) in the 2nd layer of skin. It isn't the laser beam hitting the skin that causes discomfort, it is the shattering of the ink. Removing body tattoos are more painful due to the depth of the ink, and cosmetic tattoos are less uncomfortable. Of course, due to the depth of the ink, it will take more sessions of removal to expel body tattoos, and less for cosmetic tattoos.

Laser tattoo removal can be performed on almost any part of the body.

Laser Tattoo Removal Cons
Laser tattoo removal can be expensive, with the total cost depending on the size, location, and colour of the tattoo, as well as the number of treatments needed.
Laser tattoo removal is generally not covered by health insurance, as it is considered a cosmetic procedure.
It is normal to experience some redness and swelling after the treatment, and it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the laser tattoo removal practitioner to ensure proper healing.
Some people may experience scarring or changes in skin colour after laser tattoo removal, although this is rare.
Laser tattoo removal may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions, such as keloid scars or skin conditions like eczema. It is important to discuss any medical conditions with a laser tattoo removal practitioner before starting treatment.
