Registered Laser Tattoo Removal Service

Registered laser tattoo removal service in Northern Ireland

Are you having your tattoo removed by a registered laser tattoo removal service? How do you know and why is it important?

Every laser tattoo removal service in Northern Ireland, has to be registered with RQIA. RQIA is the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority. They inspect, register and regulate all clinics, studios and hospitals that provide a laser tattoo removal service.

Why is it important to know if you are treated within a registered laser tattoo removal service?

  • The person treating you is trained to the appropriate level
  • The equipment is safe and working properly
  • The treatment protocols are set up by a medical doctor
  • The premises is inspected and deemed as a safe environment for you to be in

How do you know whether you are treated by a registered laser tattoo removal service?

Look for this sign –

Who can display this sign? Only a premises that passed a rigorous inspection for quality and safety and has a registration number with RQIA is allowed to display this sign of quality assurance.

Now, some business do not display this sign, but they will clearly state that they are registered with RQIA. Why? Because any tattoo removal service who is willing to be inspected, do so, because they have gone to the trouble of being appropriately trained and invested in equipment that is safe to use.

There are several registered laser tattoo removal services in Northern Ireland. Some are based in clinics, others in hospitals, while some tattoo removal services are very closely associated with tattoo studios and will clearly show that they are registered. Irrespective of where the tattoo removal service is located, if they are registered, then they have done so, because they care about the service they provide to you.

The most important thing to remember is that a tattoo removal laser in the wrong hands, can cause immeasurable and often irreversible damage to your skin. Why run the risk?

For your own safety and peace of mind, make sure you only seek out a registered laser tattoo removal service here in Northern Ireland.

 

 

 

 

Patch Test – What is it and why do we do it?

Why do I need a patch test?

Patch test for PicosureThis question surfaces a lot.

First – What is a patch test?

A patch test is done, prior to your treatment, by using 2-3 different settings and testing small areas of skin.

The reasons people give, to avoid having a patch test, range from “I’ve had patch a test and PicoSure before” to “you must be trying to see if your treatments work”.

Lets start with the latter….. The PicoSure, like any other laser has a specific range of treatments that it can perform. When patients enquire about the treatments we offer, we advise them whether we can help them or not – before booking any appointments. We only do a  patch test for the treatments we offer.

When you are seen for the first time, we will do a consultation which includes a complete medical history.

By doing a full medical history we can determine whether:
– You are suitable for the treatment
– Your treatment has to be delayed
– You actually need to be referred

Now for the former…. You’ve had a patch test and PicoSure before…..

Yes many people don’t understand, but here’s

Why we do your patch test.
1. Best practice
UberSkin is a registered clinic and our treatments are carried out under strict medical protocol, which includes having a patch test prior to your first treatment.
2. Best setting
This simply means, we need to choose the correct settings on the PicoSure which will give you the best results for your treatment. In order to find out what this setting is, we do a patch test.
3. Best result
We then wait to see how these spot tests develop and respond over a period of time. This can be anything from 24 hours to several days depending on your skin type.

Doing a patch test, is a simple way of understanding whether a setting is right or too high or too low. If the setting is too low, then your treatment will not be effective. If it is too high, then you could have an adverse reaction.

Ultimately your safety is paramount. We want you to feel confident having the treatment. So doing a patch test is the simplest way of finding out the best setting to achieve the best results with your chosen treatment.

The Picosure laser is the newest and most effective in removing tattoos

So you have a tattoo, which you now regret. What now? You are not so sure what to do or where to go. You know about laser tattoo removal, but the thought scares you. Or you had laser tattoo removal and you don’t think it’s working so well.

How do you know who to trust or which laser is the real deal? All lasers are NOT created equal. You might have heard of the Picosure laser, but what is it? All you know is, you are looking for a safe and fast way to remove your tattoo. Look no further than UberSkin. We offer you the Picosure laser.

Laser tattoo removal is by far the most effective way of getting rid of your tattoo, compared to creams, lotions and potions.Why? Because it breaks up your tattoo ink into bite size pieces, so your body can remove it through your lymphatic system.

But what is bite size? It makes sense that the smaller the particle size of your ink, the easier your body will be able to get rid of it.

Thats where the Picosure laser comes in. Older nano second lasers break up your ink into chunks. The Picosure laser blasts your tattoo ink into fine particles like grains of sand.  It’s so much easier for your body’s lymphatic system to remove a small particle of ink compared to pushing a huge chunk of ink through your system.

The Picosure laser workstation can remove your tattoos safely and efficiently without injuring the surrounding tissue.
