Here at Skin Sense GP Clinic we use Plexr Soft Surgery. This innovative technology utilises plasma formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove tattoos. This procedure avoids many of the risks associated with traditional intervention, providing a quick and easy recovery. The treatment is performed without cutting or need of stitches.
The treatment is performed through dots made with the Plexr device at 500 microns apart to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibres. Each of these dots sublimates (which means to change a substance from a solid into a gas) the superficial skin cells without affecting an important deeper layer known as the basal lamina, without causing bleeding and more importantly without damaging surrounding tissue. With impressive results from the first session, you can get your desired results within a few months. Using an anesthetic cream, we provide painless tattoo removal with no scarring.
Patients are required to attend the appointment 30 minutes prior to the actual treatment to have topical numbing cream applied to the area to be treated to minimise the risk of discomfort during the procedure. Immediately after the treatment the treated area(s) will be quite red and mildly swollen. Patients may experience some swelling and mild discomfort in the treated area following their treatment and this may last up to 3 days. At the site of each dot of treatment a carbon crust immediately forms. These crusts should not be touched for 5-7 days except to camouflage them with oxygenating post-procedure foundation. We recommend Oxygenetix for this purpose.
Usually you will just need the one session for exceptional improvement, however in some cases you will need up to 3 treatments on the area to get your desired results. The results are permanent.
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding. Those with sensitive skin.

- On arrival, you will be marked in as arrived by our Receptionist and seated in our reception area. New customers will be given a Medical History form to complete. Upon completion, you will be welcomed by Dr Lanka and taken into a private room for your consultation.
- During the consultation Dr Lanka will discuss your queries with you, take photos of you and your areas of concern, and give you an option of treatments or products that are most suited to you. From here, we offer you a cooling off period so that you can consider your options and decide whether to go ahead with a treatment. Alternatively, if you do not want a cooling off period and are ready to go ahead with the procedure, we can do this in the same appointment. You will be required to fill out and sign a consent form to agree to the treatment, and then Dr Lanka will carry out the procedure. Once completed, you will be shown the results and more photos will be taken. You will then return to the reception area and payment will be taken in cash or card. Please note: there is a 2% surcharge on ALL card payments.
- We will then arrange for you to come back and see us for a review two weeks after your treatment. Within this time you will need to strictly follow the aftercare given to you.
