Tattoo removal

Medisch Laser Centrum was the first clinic in the Netherlands to offer tattoo removal treatments using lasers.

With over 25 years of experience, the removal of tattoos has been optimized within our clinic. 

Our treatment

Permanent tattoos can be removed with the help of laser technology. The laser emits an intense burst of light at one wavelength for a fraction of a second. This light is selectively absorbed by the ink particles encapsulated in the skin. The energy produced by the laser breaks open the encapsulation, which allows the body's immune system to break down and remove the newly freed ink.

However, the body cannot remove all the ink in one go. This means multiple treatments are necessary to fully remove a tattoo. If your body responds positively to the treatment, the tattoo will start to fade over the course of several months.

Over 25 years of experience

Medisch Laser Centrum has over 25 years of experience with the removal of tattoos. As such our specialists are extremely capable of compiling a personal treatment plan for you. 

Best results

Our Q-switched Ruby laser and Q-switched Nd YAG laser currently produce the best possible results when it comes to the removal of tattoos. If and how your tattoos react to the laser treatment depends on several factors.

The type of tattoo is of great importance to the effectiveness of the treatment: amateur tattoos generally contain less ink per unit surface area and the ink is usually plant-based. The colour of the ink also complicates accurate treatment predictions: different colours often need to be treated in a different way. After the first treatment we will discover to which laser the ink in your tattoo responds best to.

The number of treatments also depends on these factors. The average number of treatments for an amateur tattoo is between 8 and 12 treatments, while professional tattoos will take more treatments to remove. For optimal results, it is necessary to allow between 6 and 8 weeks to pass between treatments.


Tattoo removal starts at € 40,- per treatment.

During the first consultation the laser specialists will make an estimate for the amount of required treatments based on their experience with similar tattoos. They will also clarify the possibilities and costs of the tattoo removal treatment. A consultation costs € 30,- which will be discounted from the price of the eventual treatment.
