How long does it take to remove a tattoo?

Skin type, tattoo location, color(s), amount of ink, scarring tendencies, tissue change, layering, and age of your tattoo can all influence how many treatments you will need to completely remove your ink. Delete’s tattoo analysis will quickly and accurately predict the number of treatments needed and the total cost of your removal. No pressure, straight forward and honest is our style. We understand that removing your tattoo is a big decision and promise to answer any and all of your questions.

During your no-commitment consultation, Delete’s tattoo removal specialist will discuss the removal process, safety benefits of Delete’s physician delivered treatments, steps we take to eliminate pain throughout the process, how long it will take to remove your tattoo and the end results you can expect. We remove thousands of tattoos and stand behind our treatment plans – guaranteed.

Once the tattoo consultation is complete, Deleters receive a personalized treatment plan outlining the estimated number and length of treatments necessary for removal. Delete’s goal is to safely remove tattoos in the fewest number of sessions – painlessly and affordably.

So, how long does it take to remove a tattoo? It depends how many layers thick your tattoo is and which laser you choose to remove it. The thicker, more layered, more colored tattoo equals more treatments. PicoWay’s ultra-short pulses deliver the strong photoacoustic impact needed to fracture pigment particles using lower fluences, for better clearance in fewer treatments. On average, the PicoWay laser removes professional tattoos in 4-6 treatments and amateur tatttoos in 2-3. On average, the AlexELETE laser removes professional tattoos in 8-12 treatments, while amateur tattoos typically require 6 treatments with traditional Q-switched removal. Certain tattoos are more challenging to remove than others and there are a number of variables that may affect how the body responds to tattoo removal.

PicoWay and AlexELETE treatment options fit every budget and remove tattoos of every color on every skin type.


The results,

 seeing is believing
