This is a place where the quality of service and experience goes over and beyond expectations. That is achieved only by people who are knowledgeable... about what they do and who genuinely care about their clients, and Rana exemplifies those traits very well. She’s not like other people who tend to be pushy about treatments and products. She’s honest with what treatment works and what wouldn’t. These traits allow customers to gain trust and confidence in the brand. Rana’s service is worth every penny and for that, she deserves all accolade and recognition.read more

Tough Love

It is time to address the elephant in the room, does tattoo removal hurt?

Everyone has a different tolerance to pain but let us not beat around the bush. The harsh reality of the matter is tattoo removal can be painful to even those with the highest threshold. Most people describe the feeling as being flicked with a burning hot rubber band, which does not sound appealing, but then neither is donning that tattoo you have been regretting.

The good news is the process is generally very fast and many clients will return to work the same day as their treatment, so long as it does not pose a risk in terms of aftercare. We all know pain is gain, so let us strip you of your ex-girlfriend’s name!

The Pain Factor

At tattoo removal Sydney we understand all the nerves and concerns that customers have when considering laser tattoo removal. Making sure our clients are as comfortable as possible during the treatment is paramount to our team. We ensure you feel completely at ease and that any queries or concerns will be covered during the consultation process.

To help subside pain during treatment, there are several things we can do which are included in the treatment package.

Numbing Cream

Numbing creams are a very effective way to help ease any pain and discomfort associated with Tattoo Removal. We advise that you come in 30 minutes prior to treatment. Our team will apply a topical anaesthetic cream which is a numbing agent to assist in lowering the pain experienced during the tattoo removal.

Cooling Technology

A great deal of the pain experienced throughout this treatment is caused by the lasers continuous light energy exposure creating a hot sensation on the skin. To help control heat pain and avoid thermal damage, we cool the skin at -35 degrees simultaneously with the ink removal.

This is one of the most effective ways to minimise pain. Our KOOLO skin cooling technology can cool the skin before, during and after treatment without interfering with the power of the laser beam. The cool air is harmless to the skin but lessens the intensity of the laser over your tattoo

Over-The-Counter Pain Relief

Although we have numbing agents and technology available, you may wish to consider an over the counter pain relief such as Ibuprofen. Taken approximately 30 to 45 minutes prior to your treatment it can assist in calming your actual nerve endings, making the sensation from the laser less intense.

 

Gel Ice Packs

As a standard process, Sydney Tattoo Removal will provide Gel Ice Packs for the area before and after treatment. The Gel Packs will not be available to use during treatment, but upon completion part of your post-session care, apply one for 5-10 minutes over the bandaged area for relief. Gel and Ice packs work to reduce swelling in inflammation and can be used at home to help after treatment.

The Green Whistle

Those who have experienced the Green Whistle will know that any pain or discomfort will simply disappear. For large areas, our Dr can supply the Green Whistle to selected candidates which will completely block out any pain or discomfort associated with your treatment (or anything else for that matter).

Penthrox is a self-administered, rapid acting analgesic agent for short-term pain relief. The Penthrox inhaler is a green whistle shaped single use device that delivers methoxyflurane in analgesic doses. Clients can assess their own level of pain and titrate the amount of Penthrox inhaled for adequate pain control.

Trade Secrets

As the client there are a few things you can do in the lead up to your tattoo removal session to ensure minimal discomfort during your treatment. First of all, know what you’re signing up for! Understanding the process prior to the session will increase the likelihood of your comfortability during the procedure.

Whilst drinking lots of water is essential in day to day life, it’s especially beneficial to come to your appointment hydrated! Consuming water can avoid headaches, whilst also proven to assist your body in the process of breaking up tattoo ink particles. Keeping up your water intake post treatment will also assist this natural process.

Here is an easy one, come with your stomach full! Just as you need to have a feed before a tattoo, coming to your removal treatment well fed will stabilise your blood sugar level. Having a meal prior to your treatment will lower the risk of light-headedness.

Avoid soaking up the Sun before or after your laser treatment. Absorbing UV rays increases skin sensitivity, which can attribute to tattoo removal pain. Similarly, Sun exposure shortly after your session can lead to burning pain and scarring on the treated area.

Speak up! The tattoo removal Team wants to ensure they provide the best experience possible for the client, so there is no shame in asking for a breather. Every client’s pain tolerance is different; communicate throughout your treatment! Also remember that tattoos on sensitive skin such as the inner thigh or over the ribs will be more painful to remove than a tattoo on your arm or bottom.

A Clean Slate

at Just as when you got your first tattoo you will know, if you want it, it is worth the discomfort.  So, if you’ve been thinking of ridding your body of that matching tattoo from your teens or some regrettable botched ink, visit us at Sydney Tattoo Removal and allow our team to get you back that blank canvas you once had.

5/5
“The experienced and dedicated staff at Face of man Sydney made my treatment feel as easy as possible. The high-quality results speak for themselves, as my tattoos have faded significantly in just a few sessions. I was a bit worried about the process, but the staff talk you through every stage. I think they have a fair price, and the service is second to none. It can be hard to find somewhere with good skills and an easy location (I caught the train and walked under five minutes to arrive). I would definitely recommend Face of Man to my family and friends who are having regrets about a past tattoo.

Tattoo Removal FAQs

Face of Medical uses the latest in premium Laser technology. For our valued customers, we have the Discovery Pico, a state of the art, medical-grade laser which means less tattoo removal sessions as it is more effective at breaking down the ink.

Because the Discovery Pico  can generate 4 wavelengths, unlike cheaper clinics, Face of Medical is able to remove any tattoo colour.

We’re so confident that qualifying clients who commit to a full tattoo removal package are eligible for our tattoo removal “No Sting Guarantee“.

Face of Medical guarantees that you won’t find a better laser tattoo removal service in Sydney. Our unique understanding of the human body, how your lymphatic system works and our pre and post treatments that make your tattoos disappear even faster, takes the sting out of your tattoo removal.
 
During your consultation, your clinician will indicate the number of treatments required to achieve your desired outcome. If your tattoo removal does not achieve the outcomes we agreed at the outset, then you can continue to receive tattoo treatments for FREE for a period of 12 months from date of last treatment.

This is a difficult question to answer accurately as everyone’s tattoo, immune system and skin is different. From our experience, the average number of laser treatments to fully remove a tattoo is between six and 12 sessions. Many factors can reduce or increase this range, these include:

  • The amount of ink in your tattoo (more ink = more treatments)
  • Layers of ink (more layers = more treatments)
  • Your skin type (fairer skin = less treatments)
  • The location of the tattoo on your body

Each laser tattoo removal treatment session takes less than five minutes and we like to space them six to eight weeks apart.

Our team of expert Technicians recognise that to achieve optimal results, there is much to consider upon completion of your treatment. With this in mind, we ensure that each client receives a comprehensive explanation of how to support and promote recovery.

In addition to guidance and education, each client will receive a Tattoo Removal Aftercare package to take home so that they can correctly and effectively tend to the treated area and support the recovery process. We will also follow up with you post treatment.

We find that our clients appreciate our aftercare process and follow up.

After every session, big or small, our tattoo removal specialist will provide you with post-care instructions and check in with you via email to see how you are healing. If any questions or concerns arise, we are available to help you.

Once your treatment is finished, you may experience what’s known as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation – a darkening or lightening of the skin respectively. This is due to the laser changing not only the composition of the tattoo ink, but the melatonin in your skin.

Your skin will go back to a normal colour within 6 to 12 months after your treatments.

Upon completion of treatment, our clients will enjoy a Hydrating Elixir from the Beauty Chef range. Beauty Chef offers an extensive selection of supplements that support wellness, gut health and strengthen the immune system. This will also start the process of elimination of the ink that has just been treated.

Your Technician will then discuss your recovery and provide you with a complimentary After Care Pack, including:

ICE PACK

The ice pack helps to reduce the inflammation and bring relief to the treated area post treatment. Your Technician will ensure you understand how to treat, dress and nurture the treated area for optimum recovery.

BEAUTY CHEF SUPPLEMENTS

The supplements support wellness, gut health and strengthen the immune system.

OINTMENT AND GAUZE

We use natural and organic aftercare products developed by Aussie Inked. The products use the most environmentally responsible, efficacious ingredients needed to maximize performance, benefits and skin texture following the tattoo and tattoo removal processes.
