How many laser tattoo removal treatments will I need?

We offer free tattoo removal consultations at our salon and one of the most frequently asked questions we receive is, “how long will it take to remove my tattoo? How many sessions will I need?”

The Quick Answer:

It depends.

The Long Answer:

Standard laser tattoo removal requires numerous treatments, and how many treatments your tattoo will require depends on: the size, color, age, and location of your tattoo.

Total treatment time is dependent on the amount of individual treatments that are required. When you’re undergoing tattoo removal, the laser doesn’t complete the tattoo removal alone. The laser’s role in the process is to to break up the ink so the body’s lymphatic system can remove the ink after the treatment.

It takes approximately six weeks for the results of laser tattoo removal to become visible which is why at least six weeks is recommended between treatments. Rushing the wait time between periods, you risk over-treating the tattoo which can lead to discomfort and damage.
