Around 25% of people who get tattoos later regret their decision and want to have their tattoos removed, lightened or changed. Fortunately, it is possible to wipe the slate clean through advanced, non-invasive laser techniques designed for effective tattoo removal.

At Dr Kevin Chua Medical & Aesthetics, we are committed to supporting people who want a fresh start. We use a high-intensity light beam to break down ink particles into residue that the body can eventually eradicate naturally, thus lightening and removing existing tattoos.

With our advanced tools and expertise, we are constantly striving to provide a seamless and effective laser tattoo removal service for you at our clinic in Singapore.

Treatment Methods

We are always updating our laser technology for tattoo removal to ensure that you enjoy the best options in terms of functionality, duration and comfort. We currently provide two laser technologies at our clinic: PicoWay and MedLite C6.


  • Has ultra-short pulse durations that can fracture ink into smaller fragments, enabling the body to remove the tattoo more easily
  • Targets all colours including blue, yellow and green, which are the most difficult to remove
  • Applicable for all skin types
  • Covers a wider range of spot sizes
  • Treats recalcitrant tattoos and skin issues such as:
    • Skin irregularities
    • Acne scars
    • Pigmented lesions
  • Provides fast results and requires fewer treatment sessions

MedLite C6

  • Focuses concentrated energy into the targeted ink molecules to vibrate and shatter them without damaging the skin
  • Can significantly lighten or remove tattoos by up to 95% depending on the ink type, amount and depth
  • Applicable for all skin types
  • Can also treat skin conditions such as:
    • Pigmented lesions
    • Acne scars
    • Wrinkles

Both technologies have their strengths and weaknesses. It is best to contact us or book a consultation with us to explore which type of treatment may suit your needs best.

Due to Singapore’s Ministry of Health’s guidelines, we are not allowed to display before and after comparisons on our website. However, we invite you to observe the results we have achieved for our clients in our clinic.

Treatment Sessions and Costs

Laser tattoo removal services can cost upwards of $50 a session, with the cost determined by highly variable factors such as skin type, location, colour and amount of ink.

Number of Sessions: A whole tattoo can take between two to 12 sessions to be removed. Amateur tattoos will typically require two to four or more treatments, while professional tattoos may need six to 10+ sessions. You should be able to see the inks lightening and fading after each session.

Duration of Sessions: The length of each session depends on the size and the number of colours that the tattoo has. On average, each session only takes a few minutes.

Length of Session Intervals: Sessions are typically spaced between four to six weeks apart to allow your body to adjust and remove the fragmented ink pigments through natural biological processes, which cannot be rushed. It is advisable to begin treatment early.

Due to the individual nature of each case and the myriad considerations involved, we welcome you to get in touch with us to understand the cost better and get a personalised quote.

Why Choose Us?

Advanced Technologies

Personalised Treatment Plans

Every individual and every tattoo is unique. Our expert team will work closely with you to develop a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific skin type, tattoo characteristics, and desired outcomes.

Non-Invasive & Effective Techniques

We use high-intensity light beams to break down ink particles, which do not break the skin and allow the body to remove the broken-down residue with minimal discomfort and downtime. The tattoo will then gradually lighten and disappear.

Experienced & Compassionate Team

With over 17 years of experience in laser tattoo removal and being widely covered by the media, we have the expertise and the dedication to prioritise your comfort and satisfaction throughout your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

This non-invasive treatment is designed to cause as little discomfort as possible and will not damage your surrounding skin. Rest assured that the pulses of light from the laser will only be used to target the tattoo pigments on the top layer of your skin.

Before your treatment, our professional staff will first test your skin’s reaction to the lasers to determine which is the most effective for your tattoo and skin type. You will also have eye shields to protect your eyes during the process.

There will be some discomfort during the procedure, which has been described by patients as akin to a rubber band snapping against their skin.

We will use an air-cooling machine to release continuous streams of cold air for relief throughout the treatment. We also have numbing and anaesthesia creams available on request, as well as oral painkillers for bigger tattoos.

Your comfort is important to us and we will discuss your options with you before the treatment to ensure that your experience is as comfortable as possible.

2-3 weeks before: Keep the treatment area protected and avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Do not use products that can cause photosensitivity such as salicylic acid, retinols or benzoyl peroxide.

24 hours before: Remove any lotion, oils, makeup or creams on the tattoo area. Clean the skin thoroughly and shave the target area.

After the treatment: Keep the area moist with doctor-prescribed antibiotic ointment to prevent infection. Avoid direct exposure to the sun.

Refrain from scratching the treated area and take antihistamines as prescribed to reduce itch. Wait for your skin to heal fully before applying any cosmetic products.

Most of our clients can return to their daily routine on the same day or the day after their treatment, but cases may vary. We can give you more specific advice following your treatment.

Most of the clients that we have treated have experienced a successful tattoo removal. However, due to the spectrum of tattoos now available in the market, it is difficult to predict and/or guarantee effectiveness. Results vary for individuals and no individual result should be seen as typical.

If you have one tattoo on top of another, for instance, you may require extra laser treatments due to the large amount of ink to remove.

If you are thinking of undergoing this treatment to get a new tattoo over an old one, we welcome advice from your tattoo artist about the desired degree of lightening and the exact elements that should be lightened or eliminated.

Most of our clients do not report any side effects. There are some that you may encounter, but they are few and far between. These include:

Hyperpigmentation: The treated area may become darker than the surrounding skin due to an excess of melanin caused by the pulses of different light wavelengths. The condition is harmless, but we can also recommend cosmetic products for you to even out your skin tone if you are concerned about this.

Hypopigmentation: The treated area may become lighter than the surrounding skin due to the treatment clearing your skin’s natural pigmentation. Some time may be required for your skin’s pigment to return to its previous tone.

Blistering: Superficial blisters containing both water and pigments may arise due to the heating up of ink particles in your skin. They can be tender to the touch, but they indicate that the healing process has begun and they will heal completely between three to 14 days.

Keloids: Raised, thickened scar tissue that forms around a wound. In very rare cases, they can appear three to six months after treatment. If scarring does occur, it is usually subtle and can be treated with Vitamin E oil or silicone patches. Permanent scarring happens less than 2% of the time. This risk can be minimised by staying hydrated, getting sufficient rest, quitting smoking and avoiding UV exposure.

Infection: While laser tattoo treatments do not break the surface of your skin, infection is possible if you burst your blisters or scratch the treated area. Contact us immediately if you suspect infection.
