How Many Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments Do You Need?


Unlike traditional tattoo cleaning, laser tattoo removal can selectively treat the skin with lasers of different wavelengths so that the skin will not be damaged. Here are 3 most frequently asked questions from laser tattoo removal patients.

1. Why does it take multiple sessions to remove tattoo?

Light colored areas in the tattoo will disappear faster than darker and more intense. The time it takes to remove a tattoo depends on the age, color, location and size of the tattoo, how deep the tattoo penetrates into the layers of the skin, and how efficiently the body removes the particles of ink.

2. Will it leave a scar?

Except for severe scarring, this method of cleaning does not damage the skin and leave scars. After treatment, with proper care, the skin can fully recover.

3. Does tattoo removal hurt?

It’s a common belief that tattoo removal is excruciating, yet most patients say that the sensation of removal is comparable to having a tattoo applied. Common descriptions include the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin or bacon grease. Before laser tattoo removal, dermatologists will use anesthetics to relieve pain for patients. Therefore, the pain of laser tattoo removal is completely acceptable.
