Whether you want to remove a tattoo you regret getting or are removing existing tattoos to make room for new ink, laser tattoo removal is a safe, effective way to get rid of body art permanently. Not all tattoo removal is equal; look for a qualified, experienced tattoo removal specialist in Perth you can trust.
Laser removal is the safest removal method – other methods like acid injection, tattoo removal creams, and IPL laser are either ineffective or unsafe. If you want to remove your tattoos safely and permanently, laser removal is the best option.
Tattoo removal methods
Regardless of whether an artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks and designs of a tattoo are permanent.
Tattoos can be removed through a number of methods:
- acid injections, which are unsafe and can cause permanent scarring
- removal creams, which don’t penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to fully remove pigments
- Q-switched laser, which effectively removes tattoos of all ages and colours
When people subsequently want their tattoos removed, most doctors and health professionals today consider laser surgery one of the best methods. The team at Dr Rob Goldman’s practice use only the highest quality lasers to achieve the best results.
The Q-switched Nd:YAG is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. During treatment, pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the pigment. Over the next several weeks the body’s immune system sheds the laser-treated skin and removes the targeted pigmented areas. With the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser available on the HarmonyXL laser system, you can effectively treat dark inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all body art), blue and green ink. Different wavelengths are used to treat the red, orange, yellow, and other coloured inks.
Older tattoos are easier to remove as the body has already absorbed some of the ink pigment over time. New body art will require more sessions to completely remove the tattoo. Patients should expect to return for several treatments to achieve expected results. Aftercare of the area is the key to avoiding infections and scarring and to achieve the best results.

Patients will need to wait a period of 6 to 8 weeks between each session; this gives the area of skin time to heal and reduces the likelihood of scarring or infections.
Laser tattoo removal is a safe cosmetic procedure when completed by a professional. This procedure is permanent and irreversible. Dr Goldman will discuss the procedure, pre-care and aftercare with you during your consultation at one of our clinics.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Technology Works
Tattoo ink and natural pigmentation like melanin absorb short pulse duration/high peak energy Q-switched pulses so quickly that they create a light energy effect within the pigment clusters.
This effect breaks down the ink into much smaller particles that can be more easily removed by the body’s natural filtering system. The greater the contrast between the ink colour and skin tone, the greater the results are.
After the laser treatment sessions, the body will take several weeks to naturally remove the targeted pigmented areas of the tattoo. You should see dramatic fading of your tattoo between treatment sessions, with the ultimate goal being total tattoo removal in 10 sessions or fewer.
