Earlier this year, she visited a popular national laser clinic chain and was told that after 10 treatments, the price per session was $125, and the removal would be a \"simple one\"
After six treatments, she was unhappy with her progress and was told to book the remaining treatments at a nearby clinic because they had a \"higher intensity laser \".

There is growing concern about Australia\'s largely unregulated laser tattoo removal industry, where plastic surgeons and laser workers use cheap machines to warn \"cunning\" clinics.
These machines are usually operated by poor technicians who can permanently disfigure patients and pay thousands of dollars for cosmetic surgery.
Sydney plastic surgeon Rohit Kumar said he now does at least two surgeries per month related to tattoo removal.
\"Any surgery to remove a tattoo will definitely leave you a scar, which is not necessarily better than an unreliable laser removal,\" Dr. Kumar told news . \". com. au.
\"They will still be disfigured compared to what they were originally looking like.
Dr. Kumar said that tattoo removal by laser by qualified technicians is always the ideal result.
Most of his clients come from the \"think again\" laser clinic and when they can\'t do anything, they recommend patients to Dr. Kumar.

According to the size and style of the tattoo, 15 laser treatments were performed.
Mr. Anderson charges $270 per session, usually 15 cm by 10 cm.
One sleeve costs between $1000 and $1500 a quarter.
The laser removal clinic is a profitable business and the news is spreading.
\"I see a new clinic in Sydney every week and they are not all equipped with the right technology,\" Mr Anderson said . \".
\"These people are still charging for the same price and they are getting away with it.
They make a lot of money and are always at the expense of people\'s skin.

There are two kinds of laser machines: Q-
As an industry standard, the cost is about $150,000 for switching machines and intense pulse light (IPL)
The cost of the laser is between $10,000 and $15,000.
The IPL laser machine is usually sold as a general purpose machine but is not suitable for tattoo removal.
If it is not applied correctly, the heat generated by the laser can damage the skin and cause burns, resulting in more severe scars from the original tattoo, said Dr. Jeremy Hunt, spokesman for the Australian Association of Plastic Surgeons.
\"The only solution is to remove it surgically.
\"This may involve skin grafting, which can lead to serious scars,\" Hunt told the news . \". com. au.
Dr. Kumar said he had to perform several unpleasant surgeries on patients whose laser tattoo removal failed.
\"I recently saw a woman with a tattoo on her arm.
She tried to remove it three times [
Use cunning laser]
She left a piece of tissue and scars.
I had to bring her into the theater and I cut off the whole tattoo.

\"Under the Public Health Act 2010 and the public health regulations 2012, the laser procedure, including the procedure used to remove tattoos, is not regulated because they do not have the risk of spreading the disease from the customer to the customer, A new state health spokesman told the news. com. au.
However, the new state health department is currently reviewing the regulation of cosmetic surgery and private health facilities. News. com.
The AU understands that it will wait until the results of the Australian Medical Commission\'s review of the largely unregulated billion-dollar cosmetic surgery industry are announced in January 2016.
This lack of regulation means that more and more patients with failed laser tattoo removal are forced to remove tattoos through surgery, which is the last resort.
The process could cost thousands of dollars, most of which are not included in Medicare or private health funds.
Jessica has now been removed from her two paw tattoos by Dr. Kumar\'s surgery.
The ink cannot be removed at one time, so another operation will take place within six weeks.
The whole move cost her $3500.
