Tattoo lightening

Tattoo lightening


Are you looking for a way to lighten your old tattoo? The LASER ÄSTHETIK INSTITUT is the right contact for you! For many years, we have been offering you the treatment of tattoo lightning and / or removal.

Regardless of whether your old tattoo does not meet your aesthetic requirements, fashion trends or the beloved body jewelry has become an annoying remnant… we are the right and competent contact for you!


A cover-up tattoo is a handy solution, because your old tattoo is covered with a new one. The new tattoo motive is almost always bigger and darker. This is not always the best solution.

A tattoo lightening with the laser is a good investment, or something to be considered.
Laser treatment is the most successful way to get rid of an old and unwanted tattoo. This method is particularly skin-friendly, gentle and painless without damaging the surrounding tissue.


Any lightening or removal of your tattoo requires a personal, informal consultation at LASER ÄSTHETIK INSTITUT in Düsseldorf and Essen. The professional support during your entire laser therapy by our experienced laser therapists is our top priority.

The consultation and the trial treatment are of course free of charge for you.

We will comprehensively inform you about the whole process of your laser tattoo removal and possible risks and side effects, inform and work with you together with suitable solutions.


Try it. We will be glad to do a sample – test treatment to help you take your doubts and fears before the treatment.

We advise you in detail.


The number of lightenning sessions required depends on a couple of important factors:

  • the style of your tattoo
  • the depth of your tattoo ink
  • the pigment (ink) density of your tattoo
  • the age of your tattoo

Professional tattoos require usually between 2 and 5 treatments due to the higher pigment density. Less densely inked tattoos (eg home made tattoos) can be succesfully removed more quickly, usually after 1 to 3 treatments.

The price of your laser treatment is dependent on the size, and complexity of the tattoo. Our preminary suggestions will be determined during your consultation.


Tattoo laser removal/lightenning most people feel not so painful as its inking. However, there are also people, who say the exact opposite. During your laser treatment, you will be able personally get the feeling of it. The truth will probably often lay in the middle.

Here we summarise the whole course of their treatment for you:



At the beginning of your laser removal, we will photograph your treated area so that you can compare the progress of your treatment.


Laser Treatment

After disinfection and cooling of the tattooed area, the laser treatment begins, which only takes a few minutes depending on the size of your tattoo.



In the end, the treated tattoo will be cooled down and covered with a sterile bandage. After 1 to 2 weeks, the skin site is usually healed without scarring.


Skin care

Your help by maintaining your treated skin for a best possible result is also very important! We give you some tips and inform you in detail about the treatment so that you can achieve an optimal result!



There should be a break of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. This procedure is repeated until your unwanted tattoo is completely removed.



We use only state-of-the-art laser systems designed to remove multi-color tattoos and permanent make-up removal.

Conventional lasers

The most common lasers work with only 2 wavelengths: 1064 nm and 532 nm. They can only remove dark and red pigmentation.

Our technology

With an additional wavelength of 694 nm, our lasers can successfully remove the entire color spectrum (blue, light blue, turquoise, green, violet) and other pigment spots!

We are happy to consult you


  • During tattooing/ pigmentation particles are introduced into the middle skin layer by piercing the skin.
  • These ink particles are so big that they can not be discharged by the body and remain permanently in the skin.
  • During the laser removal, the individual layers of the color particles are heated with the laser and “crashed”, so that they disintegrate into small color pigments.
  • The colour pigments decomposed, destroyed by the laser treatment act and are transported away via the lymphatic system and excreted by the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are there any scars or pigment spots after the tattoo removal?

    No, usually not. The removal of a tattoo with the LASERAESTHETIK INSTITUTE is hautschoning and leaves no scars as long as the customers adhere to the instructions of our therapist. For particularly tanned skin, it is possible to see the bright pigment spots.

  • When can I not have laser treatment done?

    Before starting the treatment we are dependent on your help and discuss your personal situation by means of a medical questionnaire. Especially during pregnancy, lactation, haemophilia, viral hepatitis, cardiovascular problems and epilepsy (after consultation with the treating physician and depending on the stage of the disease a tattoo removal can be performed). Please contact your laser therapist.

  • What should I avoid after laser tattoo removal?

    If itching is as gentle as possible, do not scrape the treated area and do not mechanically remove scabs or blisters. After a few days, they will heal completely. During the tattoo removal we ask you to do without sunbathing, solarium and peelings. Let the LASER ÄSTHETIK INSTITUT personally advise you on the proper care and after-care of your skin.

  • Will the health insurance funds cover part or all of the costs?

    The health insurance funds usually do not cover the cost of removing a tattoo. An exception (with partial food takeover) may exist in a private health insurance. If you are interested in this, we recommend that you discuss this with your health insurance company prior to starting treatment.

  • How long does the skin need to regenerate?

    The treated skin is completely healed after only a few days (usually it takes between 6-10 days). Between the treatments should be 4 to 6 weeks, so that the skin and the immune system can recover. It is important that the wound is completely healed before the next treatment takes place.

  • Was sollte vor und nach der Behandlung beachtet werden?

    Medicines that increase the sensitivity to light and are not taken regularly should be avoided before treatment. The affected area must be kept dry and absolutely clean for two days after the treatment in order to avoid infection. The permanent make-up should not be exposed to natural or artificial sunlight during the entire treatment period.

  • Can dark-skinned people easily remove a tattoo?

    Even dark-skinned people can have a tattoo removed. However, there is a risk of pigmentation. Talk to us, we will gladly answer your individual situation!

  • What side effects may occur?

    As with any aesthetic treatment, there is also a risk of tattoo removal. However, getting a tattoo away is the safest and most haunting removal method. The treated skin is reddened and may swell. In rare cases, bleeding may occur. If a crust forms, it should not be removed, as there is a risk of scarring. It is important to follow the care instructions of our laser therapists.

  • What is the difference between Laientattoos and professionally inked tattoos?

    Laientattoos are inked with a simple needle and ink or ink. Professional tattoos are pierced into the skin with a special tattoo machine. In the professionally engraved tattoos, the colors are usually used a little deeper into the skin.

  • How does the laser work?

    During tattoo removal, the ink of the tattoo is targeted and destroyed with the laser light. These shattered color pigments dissolve a cleansing process in the body so that the color pigments are then transported away via the lymph system.

  • How many treatments do I need for tattoo removal?

    you need several sessions to remove a tattoo completely. The exact number of treatments is individual. Experience from 6 to 12 treatments is necessary up to the complete removal of a tattoos. The earlier a tattoo is, the better it can usually be removed. Exception is here an old tattoo, which was rather unproffesionel (badly) stabbed and already very pale, so a tatoo is usually also very quickly remove.

  • How much does a treatment cost?

    Prices for tattoo removal are dependent on the size, intensity and type of color of the tattoo. We offer you a very good price-performance ratio at the LASERASTHETIK INSTITUTE and the highest quality of treatment. Please make a free consultation with us, or write us an email or call us.

  • Is the tattoo removal painful?

    There may be pain during tattoo removal, depending on the sensitivity of the person and the site. The sensation is roughly comparable to that during tattoostechens. In case of high sensitivity to pain, we recommend special treatment sutures, which will stun the skin superficially.

  • How long does treatment take?

    The duration of treatment depends on the size of your tattoos and the post-cooling time. For small tattoos the treatment time is only a few minutes.

  • Can all colours/inks of a tattoo be removed?

    The laser can usually destroy all color pigments. Black, dark blue, brown and red tattoos can be removed most easily. With violet or light blue colors, the treatment can be more difficult and lasting. In such colors, color changes can also occur during the course of your treatment.

Behandlungsfortschritt und Behandlungserfolg sind gemäß Behandlungsplan. Sehr angenehm, dass verschiedene Therapeuten völlig gleich arbeiten. Auch Preisangebote sind unabhängig vom anbietenden Therapeuten. Das vermittelt viel Vertrauen und hohe Zuverlässigkeit. Lasse inzwischen zweite Tattoo entfernen. Rundum professionell. Absolut weiter zu empfehlen!

Eigentlich sind 5 Sterne zu wenig für so eine tolle Beratung(: Die Karo hat sich viel Zeit genommen für mich und hat mich aufgeklärt über das Lasern. Ich kann das Laser Studio jeden empfehlen. Sei es für eine Aufhellung bzw. Cover up oder eine komplette Entfernung! Ich freue mich auf die nächste Sitzung (: Danke Karo
