Although it’s known that Laser Tattoo Removal is the most effective method of tattoo removal, those who wish to have their tattoo removed might think that it can be achieved in 1 treatment. Unfortunately this is not the case.
The tattoo removal process is as follows:
The yag laser will send energy directly to the tattoo ink to break down the pigment (ink) so that eventually over time the body can absorb the broken down particles and eliminate them through the lymphatic system.
This process can take time.
In most cases this is between 4-8 weeks depending on the persons age , the type of tattoo and where the tattoo is placed on the body. The skin will also needs time to heal and regenerate from the laser treatment.
It is a known fact that tattoos on the upper body heal quicker than those on the lower extremities.
Once the skin is healed in between that time, we are able to perform another treatment, and the process is repeated.
