The Procedure for Tattoo Removal
The Recovery Process for Tattoo Removal
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on your skin’s response to the laser, the type of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin. Most professional tattoos usually need six to ten or more treatments whilst amateur ones need only four to six treatments.
Can all colours be treated?
The 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths can successfully treat black, dark brown, grey wash, dark blue, red brown, orange and red. There are also the 660 nm and 585 nm hand pieces to be able to treat more greens and mid- blues. Please note that yellow and white inks can be very difficult to remove.
