Are you ready to bid farewell to that ink you once loved but now regret? Tattoo removal is a liberating solution that allows you to start with a clean slate.

Whether you’re considering tattoo removal for artistic reasons or simply want a fresh start, keep reading as we guide you through the process, benefits, expected results, pre-and post-treatment care, and who can benefit from this treatment.

At Etanda’s removal treatments and equipment, a laser technology is used to target the ink of the tattoo and to apply localized pulses of light, aimed to decompose the tattoo’s pigment clusters. More specifically, this pulsed light safely passes through the skin’s outer layer and is absorbed by the ink; the light is then converted to heat, which breaks the ink down into much smaller, more manageable particles. 

The body’s lymphatic system then filters these particles out over several weeks’ time and, as this natural elimination occurs, the tattoo fades and eventually disappears. Our technology include varying spot sizes and other customizable settings to ensure the most effective removal with the lowest risk of side effects. 

While the number of treatment sessions depends on the colour, size and placement of tattoo, all profiles can be effectively and safely treated.

What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is erasing or lightening a tattoo from the skin’s surface using various techniques.

It’s a safe and effective way to rid yourself of unwanted tattoos that no longer align with your lifestyle, preferences, or aesthetic choices.

Benefits of Tattoo Removal

Here are some of the benefits of tattoo removal:

What Results Can You Expect?

Tattoo removal results vary depending on factors such as:

  • Tattoo’s size
  • Color
  • Age
  • Type of removal method used 

Generally, you can expect a gradual fading of the tattoo over multiple sessions. Some tattoos may be completely removed, while others may leave behind a faint trace.

Advanced laser technologies, like those provided by Etanda, offer highly effective removal with minimal scarring. Your skin will continue to improve in appearance over time after each session, as your body naturally flushes out the broken-down ink particles.

Before Treatment

Here are the things you can do before scheduling for the treatment:


Consultation. The first step is to consult with a certified tattoo removal specialist like what we offer here at Etanda. We will evaluate your tattoo, skin type, and overall health to determine the most suitable removal method and estimate the number of sessions required.


Prepare Your Skin. Keeping your skin well-moisturized before treatment can improve the outcome. Avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning to prevent complications.


Stay Hydrated. Drinking plenty of water can help your body flush out ink particles more efficiently during and after treatment.

After Treatment

For optimal results, you can do the following after treatment:

  • Follow Aftercare Instructions. Your chosen provider will set specific post-treatment care instructions. This may include keeping the treated area clean, avoiding sun exposure, and applying prescribed ointments.

  • Expect Some Discomfort. Mild discomfort, redness, and swelling are common after a tattoo removal session. These side effects typically subside within a few days.

  • Be Patient. Tattoo removal is a gradual process. Multiple sessions are usually necessary to achieve the desired results. Patience is key to seeing the ink fade away.

Who is the Treatment For?

Tattoo removal is suitable for anyone looking to get rid of unwanted tattoos. It’s not limited to a specific age group or gender. Whether you’re a young adult reconsidering your teenage ink choices or a professional aiming to comply with workplace policies, tattoo removal can benefit you.

Additionally, tattoo removal is a great option for individuals who want to make room for new tattoos, correct faded or blurred designs, or simply refresh their skin’s appearance.
