TA-TA-TATTOO: Laser treatment for the removal of scarring, caused by tattoo removal, proves almost as popular as Botox at the UK’s leading cosmetic surgery provider, The Harley Medical Group.
With a high number of celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Peter Andre, Megan Fox, Kelly Osbourne and Eva Longoria, recently having tattoos removed, bookings for the removal of tattoo scars have risen by 30% at The Harley Medical Group, making the treatment almost as popular at Botox.*
The removal of tattoo scars is treated using the FDA approved laser treatment, exclusive to The Harley Medical Group, which is proven to reduce the appearance of scarring by up to 75%. With such a significant increase in bookings for tattoo scar removal, the treatment has been dubbed the ‘Ta-Ta- Tattoo’ by staff across the Group’s 31 clinics in the UK and Ireland.
Lisa Littlehales, Lead Nurse Counsellor at The Harley Medical Group, says: “The most common reasons for the removal of tattoos, is a new phase in life such as a change in relationship, or a new job, as seen with tattoo removal on celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox and Eva Longoria. The removal process can often result in scarring, leaving the memory of the tattoo visible and so defeating the point of the removal for the patient.
With a recommended course of four, the treatment uses fractional laser technology to break down scar tissue and generate new healthy tissue. The result permanently reduces the appearance of the scar, by producing smoother, more even skin that is lighter in colour.”
MOST POPULAR PARTS OF THE BODY FOR TATTOO SCAR REMOVAL
Says Jenny Taylor, patient at The Harley Medical Group: “I had a tattoo when I was younger that I loved, but 20 years later it just wasn’t ‘me’ anymore and I was really keen to get it removed. After having the tattoo removed, I was left with a scar which meant that I still had a mark on my body that I didn’t want. After having laser treatment at The Harley Medical Group, I’m really pleased with the results – the scarring has almost completely disappeared and I can now move on with a new phase in my life, without my tattoo, or any memory of it.”
The fractional laser treatment for the removal of scars, is exclusive to The Harley Medical Group and can also be used to remove stretchmarks.
