Removing Body and Eyebrow Tattoos Professionally


How to Get Rid of Permanent Tattoos

Permanent or unwanted tattoos can be removed gradually over a series of sessions courtesy of a laser tattoo removal in Nairobi. The energy from the laser breaks down the tattoo ink into tiny fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed out of the body. Thrive Aesthetics is proud to offer this revolutionary tattoo removal procedure and other laser treatments in Nairobi.

Factors To Consider Before Getting a Laser Tattoo Removal in Nairobi

1. Cost
The cost of removing a tattoo will depend on its size and the number of sessions needed. The price for laser tattoo removal in Nairobi can range from Kshs 5,000 for a single session to remove a small tattoo, to more than Kshs 50,000 for several sessions to remove a large tattoo.


2. Pain

Removing a tattoo with laser devices can be extremely uncomfortable and painful to some extent. Additionally, numbing cream can be applied but the pain will still be felt.


3. Time Consuming

Getting rid of tattoos is extremely tedious and may require up to ten sessions to remove a single tattoo. In any case, this is an estimate not an actual figure.


4. Final Results

The goal of every laser tattoo removal procedure is to get rid of the tattoo. However, that might not be the case with some tattoos since some ink will be left on the skin. Thus, this is an outcome as well as some colours don’t fade as well as others.

You should not have a tattoo removed if you are pregnant – there’s a small risk to your baby

Safety Precautions During a Laser Tattoo Hair Removal in Nairobi

Having a tattoo removed is usually safe if done by an experienced and suitably qualified practitioner. Always check if the person removing your tattoo is on a register to show they meet set standards in training, skill.

What Does Laser Tattoo Removal Involve?

  • You’ll need to shave the area of skin before the appointment.
  • On the day, you’ll be given special goggles to protect your eyes. A local anesthetic cream may be used to numb the skin.
  • A handheld device will be pressed on your skin to trigger a laser. Some people say this feels like an elastic band snapping against your skin.
  • The session will take about 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of your tattoo.
  • The tattoo should become lighter with each treatment.
  • A gel is used to cool and soothe your skin, and it might be covered with a dressing.


What are The Side Effects of Laser Tattoo Removal in Nairobi?

  1. Your skin may be red with a raised rash for a short while after treatment. Holding an ice pack to your skin may help.
  2. You may have some slight bleeding before your skin scabs over. Use aloe vera gel or Vaseline to help it heal.
  3. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 1 week after a treatment. Cover the area with clothing and use a sunscreen with at least SPF30.

Additionally, you should avoid doing the following:

  • picking or scratching the scab
  • using soap or perfumed products on the area for the first 48 hours
  • strenuous physical activities for a couple of days
  • swimming and saunas until the scab has dropped off (they may slow the healing process)


Possible risks are:

  • some colours not completely fading – yellow, green and purple ink requires more sessions to fade than black, blue and red
  • a small chance your skin may become temporarily darker or paler than the surrounding skin
  • a slight chance of permanent scarring (3 in 100 people develop a scar)
