What is the Science Behind Laser Tattoo Removal?
The number of treatments depends on the type of tattoo, the colors and depth of the ink in the skin as well as the tattoo’s placement and the length of time since it was applied. Clients who intend to re-ink the area may only need 2-5 treatments. Complete removal of a professionally applied tattoo usually requires 6-15 treatments. Amateur tattoos usually need 3-10 treatments. Multicolored tattoos, especially those with lighter colored inks, may require more treatments. Certain pigments and inks are harder to erase than others, but the majority of colors can be removed, including black, blue, green, brown, red and even sky blue.
