Laser Tattoo Removal

Did you know 20% of people regret their tattoo?

The number is astounding, but not surprising. There was a 43% increase in the number of tattoos removed in 2012, and 40% of people cited employment concerns as a reason for having their tattoo removed.

We are excited to add laser tattoo removal to our treatment offerings to meet this growing demand. This proven laser technology provides remarkable tattoo clearance and treats a vast array of colours on all skin types.

If you have an unwanted tattoo or are simply looking to clean up your canvas for a more elaborate one, contact us today for a consultation. 

Prices for laser tattoo removal depend on a few factors, such as the type of the tattoo, ink, number of colours, size and location on the body. A consultation is required to determine the cost and required number of treatements. On average 4-12 treatments are needed every 6-8 weeks.

Tattoo removal FAQs

Laser energy is gently applied to the skin over the tattooed area. The laser shatters each ink particle into much smaller particles that can be eliminated through your body’s natural process.  Through a series of treatments, the tattoo will fade and ultimately disappear.

You may notice an immediate fading. Generally tattoo removal will take place in a series of treatments. The number of treatments depends on the colour and density of the ink, the age of the tattoo, along with the location on your body.

Patients have reported the sensation similar to getting a tattoo, but the removal treatment is much faster! For improved comfort, a chiller or cold-roller may be used over the treated area.

Generally, there is no downtime at all. Often, a protective bandage is placed over the laser-treated area and you can continue on with your normal activities.

Yes! Our laser is specialised to treat the full colour spectrum including white and black. Some colours are more difficult to treat and may require more sessions.

The overall cost will depend on the number of treatments required. That number depends on numerous factors including ink colour, density and composition, location on the body, and age of the tattoo.

Yes. We can customise treatments to fade tattoos to help prep for tattoo cover-ups, and we can remove parts of a tattoo.

Lovely staff members at the reputable skin lab in Kerry, makes you feel very comfortable from start to finish and are very helpful and knowledgeable about the treatment they provide. All areas are very clean and tidy.

Moira Godley

While working with Claire I found that she showed great professionalism and was able to carry out treatment with diligence. She also knew exactly what products I should use to go with her treatment in order to clear up my acne (and was very open to questions with regards to those products) which had noticeably cleared within a few weeks after treatment and use of the products she recommended.

James Carmody

Super recommend it! ... Claire is really kind and an excellent professional! The place is comfortable and they have a specific treatments for you. By the way, the product that they have in there, are amazing!

Débora Estevão

My skin is glowing since I started visiting the Skin Lab and using all recommended products.

Denise Uí Bheaglaoi

I have been going to Claire since she opened 3 years ago for my skin. She is always so welcoming, friendly and beyond professional. There is nothing that Claire doesn't know when it comes to skin. I wouldn't trust any one or any where else with my skin. Highly recommend The Skin Lab, Claire and Shauna to anyone who wants to invest in their skin.


Had a skin consultation with Claire last week and found it extremely helpful. She set out a clear skin routine for me and was very reasonable when it came to choosing products. Claire was very efficient and organised and had my products sent out to me within an hour of the consultation. I would highly recommend the skin lab to people.

Roisin Begley

I highly recommend the Skin Lab! During my consultation, Claire explained to me very clearly what was going on with my skin, and importantly how I could remedy. Within one month of following her instructions my skin transformed, and it really has never looked (or felt) better. Claire is an expert and I really trust her advice and care!

Sophie Daly

If there were 6 stars The Skin Lab would get it.
I had been going to Claire for 10 months pre lockdown and my skin hadn't looked so good since my early 20s. I really didn't want to let all of our hard work in clinic go to waste so Claire has been working with me prescribing the most effective at home skin peels. They really are the nearest thing you will get to treatment in the clinic. I really can't wait for the clinic to open up again and hope up on that bed! If you are looking for a results-driven friendly & professional clinic then I highly recommend The Skin Lab.

Sue-Ellen Carroll

I've been going to The Skin Lab for 3 years having suffered with Adult Acne for 8 years. I've been to many Aestheticians and Dermatologists but none have come close to The Skin Lab. The level of knowledge both Claire and Shauna have is unbelievable and they genuinely want you to see results so they will not let you buy or try a treatment they know won't work for your issue. I can't recommend them highly enough.
