Training day at Highland Laser Clinic. We were fortunate to have the skilled and lovely Annele from AES taking us through Erbium laser resurfacing with our new Quanta System equipment

And our training model was the lovely Anita who is a dermatology nurse! What a team.

New services coming soon 💙

Tattoo removal coverup before and after

9 treatments on Murray's monster tribal to get it to a point where something more fun could be put on top by Neotokyo Tattoo

Perseverance is essential to get the result with these kinds of tattoo

Can't wait to see it finished!

A single treatment on Louise's "slutty fairy” as she calls it, and 8 weeks later - BOOM

Great start to her tattoo removal journey

Vein removal before and after

As from today we no longer take American Express

It's expensive, and they're crap at invoicing so we can't be bothered with them any more

Solar Lentigo removal before and after

Fun wee job to end the week finishing off this solar lentigo. Great results from her first treatment - she's a happy lady!

Vein removal before and after

This lad is very pleased by the results from his first vein removal treatment

Recovery time was about 10 days. There’s a slight bit of hyperpigmentation which is quite unusual, but I would expect that to clear up over the next few months. If it proves resistant we’ll just treat it with a green Q-Switched laser

We gave him another treatment today with a slightly different modality and are expecting further improvement 🕺🏻

Tattoo removal before and after

One from the archives. We lost track of this gentleman during Covid lockdowns, but pretty sure that tattoo will be completely gone by now

You can continue to get removal of your tattoo for up to 12 months after each treatment

Tattoo removal before and after

We haven't seen Jennifer for 5 years, but back for some more #tattooremoval, and we gave this one a hit while we were at it. She tells us we’ve changed her life

Thanks for the singing! 🎤💃🏻

Our Ruby laser operating in the 694nm wavelength can remove green and light blue ink that is impossible to treat with conventional Nd:YAG lasers

Tattoo removal before and after

Tattoos often come with a whole load of baggage and can act as a persistent reminder of people or events that you’d rather leave behind in your past. Becca opened her heart to us about thisto us, and gave us permission to share it publicly.

Tattoo removal before and after

This lady wanted rid of this for her wedding day, and we pretty much succeeded. Congratulations Marion! 💒

Very nearly gone - we'll give her another treatment in 6 months time and we should be finished then

Hand tattoo removal

Boom! ✨

Hand tattoos can be a bit slow, this is a fairly awesome result

Camcorder rotated 90 degrees

Our Pro Camcorder project is complete at last

We made a policy decision to shoot everything in 9 x 16 from here on in, and it's surprisingly complex to rotate a video camera 90 degrees!

If you'd like your treatment videoed and made into a wee film for out socials please let us know 😁

Many thanks to Ffordes Photographic and 3 Legged Thing for all of your support through this 💙

Date removal

We're in the endgame now - 8 treatments in, a few more to go

If you are wearing similar baggage, come see us and get it sorted. We'll take good care of you

Dodgy lillies

This tattoo probably has had enough laser, we'll review it again in 6 months

We've worked with this gentleman for years removing naive artwork so that he can replace them with quality modern tattoos, great guy

Carr family

We're back, rested, and ready to attend to all of your laser needs again

Thank you for your patience 💙

Sun tattoo removal before and after

11 Treatments in. Wee bit of ink left and some erythema, but that will clear up over the next few months

military tattoo

This ugly thing had basically been carved into his arm

4 laser treatments and an awesome coverup by Tattooholic and you'd never know it was there

Za naszą i waszą wolność ❤️

Treating stick and poke tattoos today. Ciara was great fun

Posted by Aaron on June 1ST 2022

military tattoo

Trad military tattoos are always a challenge, but can be removed with our ruby laser

A bit of hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin) is inevitable with all of those colours, but this will reduce and blend over the next couple of years

All in, a great result!

fake tan

In the last week we have had to turn away 3 clients because they have fake tan or makeup on the areas to be treated or patch tested

We communicate this requirement to you at the time of booking, in your booking confirmation emails, and with each reminder email you receive

If we use lasers on you while wearing fake tan or makeup you would be at a very high risk of adverse reactions and also the treatment wouldn't work

You need to trust us that we are going to provide you with safe and effective treatments. But at the same time we need to trust you that you will cooperate with the treatment plan and listen to what we say

radiotherapy tattoos

These are the marks of a survivor

Some folk like to keep them in tribute to the hard times, others prefer to move on and erase them

If you are the latter, we treat these for free, as many times as it takes. Get in touch

Non-ablative Q-Switch laser gives great results with low risk & minimal downtime

laser facial before and after

This lady has responded well from her course of 3 laser facials. We use a non-ablative fractional modality to stimulate skin remodelling and collagenesis

* Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
* Reduce acne scarring
* Give a brighter more even skin tone
* Reduce pore size
* Visibly tighten skin

More details coming soon

laser facial before and after

Follicular oedema - this is a clinical end point for hair removal. In other words, it shows us that the treatment is working!

But don't worry, it only lasts about 30 minutes. By the time we'd finished the other leg it had come down already

Lasers > Razors

insane coverup

We're very proud to have played our small part in this masterpiece by Kenny

Awesome work by the artist, and a brave man to sit for it!

We performed 6 laser treatments to the dodgy dragon over a 12 month period to prepare for the new tattoo. We recommend at least 6 months, and preferably 12 months between laser and your new ink, but that decision is really between you and your artist. Because of lockdown chaos this gentleman actually went 2 years between his last laser and completion of his silverback tattoo.

cherry angioma on chin nearly gone after a single treatment

Jen back to finish off her cherry angioma - great result regardless of it needing another ping today

can you-boost-your-immune-system-to-prevent-coronavirus-spread-x--pe53uo2f5sc9u024617u33o6ztmvk7fjlz92peyzd6

You’ve researched the process of tattoo removal, you’ve carefully chosen a respected laser clinic with high quality equipment and a track record of results, and you’ve started treatment. But how do you get the best out of it? Tattoo removal relies on your immune system to do the heavy lifting and actually shift that ink out of your skin once the laser has broken it up into tiny fragments small enough to process. The main ways to optimise your results are to boost your immune system...

spotting cowbows

We do free umbilicus hair removal with every bikini line, brazilian or hollywood bikini treatment. Doesn't feel like we've done the job properly otherwise!

Many thanks to surfer model Rhiannon for the tummy pic

spotting cowbows

Undergoing laser procedures is a fairly daunting thing for many people. There’s a whole lexicon of terminologies and brand names and lots of breathless claims about how a provider can radically change your life and fix all of your problems. How do you filter the nonsense from the reality? How do you know you’re getting value for money? How do you know that you’re going to be safe? How do you spot the cowboys?
