Nicola Gutteridge Laser Technician

Nikki has also had one-on-one training with a medical professional to ensure maximum safety when dealing with your unwanted tattoos, hair, pigmentation and lesions. She is able to give you the best advice regarding aftercare and is able to deal with any side effects such as blisters in a sterile and safe manner to minimise the risk of infection or scarring.

Nikki has also completed training at 3D Lipo for all your body and face sculpting needs! She has in depth knowledge of various treatments to give you the face and body you have always dreamed of.

It is important to note that currently there are no regulations in place for laser and IPL treatments, this means that anyone is able to laser your skin and potentially put you at a serious risk of scarring and infection. This is why at Technique we strongly advise researching into who will be carrying out the treatment along with what equipment they will be using.

Our Equipment


PICOSECOND Active Q-Switch Nd:YAG Tattoo Removal Laser 

Our brand new Pico Laser uses state of the art technology to remove your unwanted tattoos, it uses 1064nm and 523nm wavelengths to remove most colours of ink. There are many advantages of Picosecond technology compared to old nanosecond lasers, these include:

- Less treatments needed

- Less side effects

- Quicker treatment time

- Less painful

Active vs Passive Lasers

Many tattoo studios and beauty salons will use passive q-switched laser as they are much cheaper, however they are not powerful enough to completely remove the tattoo, some technicians will modify the machine and/or use dangerous techniques to increase the intensity of the laser, this is VERY dangerous and could result in a significant amount of scarring. You can tell if a laser is passive by the arm being connected by a hose or pipe rather than being articulated (like the picture to the right), passive machines also tend to be a lot smaller.

Active lasers work by breaking the ink particles in your skin into small particles which your immune system then removes. They have a much higher peak power compared to passive lasers which means they can penetrate deep into your skin but for a very short period of time so to reduce the damage the skin.
